    Ok, for real this time. The server was in need of an update/restart/kick in the nuts. This was finally taken care of, and I have personally double checked everything this time. All day Saturday, we've got a whole bunch of fun customs. Even if you're only gonna play for a little bit, stop in and say hi to your fellow TF2M peeps. Talk about the good&bad of each map, Valve's techniques, how to start our podcast, etc. Here is the current map list, though I may add a few more.

    dom_canalzone
    ctf_aerospace_a10
    cp_horus_b3
    cp_redstone_b2
    cp_aqua
    rock2_b1

    cp_castle4
    cp_dustbowl
    cp_steel
    ctf_2fort
    ctf_geothermal_b2
    pl_hoodoo_b2

    If we are going to be having these "casual" gamedays fit in with our testing gameday rotation, then I propose we do a casual gameday 1 week, then the next week have a testing one so we don't have 1 testing gameday per month. Reasonable?

    I second CTF's motion. Also, sorry for not being there on Saturday, I forgot/was packing for school. Also, its cool that this one is on the front page.

    I'll be dropping on and off tomorrow, but I would definatelly like to play aerospace at some point.

    Any chance of uploading the latest version on the server?

    nah i think it just left off on that one, tf2mappers channel says:

    ==========================
    Casual Game, Take II
    Today @ 03:00pm

    Casual Game, Take II
    Today @ 12:00pm

    Casual Game, Take II
    Today @ 06:00pm
    ==========================

    3 different "start" times really confuses me though..

    Anyone know?

    Well I'll go and have lunch now and come back in 30 min, then we can start playing, how does that sound?

    Edit: And can we update to ctf_aerospace_b1? I just played a game on Colts and it was awesome!

    Sorry about the confusion. I figured that adding start times throughout the day would help to clarify this being an all-day event, so peeps don't have to get up at 8am, lol. And can drop in whenever.

    Yeah. I was able to download tributary from the server, but not horus or boulder (it actually started getting boulder, then quit).

    Heh, I think thats because I uploaded to the redirect and the server. Someone got a bit lazy when uploading maps...

    the fact there were 4 times for the even didnt help much, but the lack of server-download-able maps killed it

    Horus lacked download (it looked like it was downloading, but when it looked like the download was done it kicked you for not having the map) and though I personally already had boulder I think I heard someone say it was doing it too.
