    I've been working on a map that I'm hoping to upload later today onto tf2maps.net, but I just wanted to check - which files are the ones required for upload? I'm guessing that it's usually the .bsp required. Can they be taken directly from the folder or do they require 'proper' exporting?

    Thanks,
    Gray

    The .bsp is fine, but it's more convenient for everyone if you compress it to a .bz2 with 7zip or similar.

    when you're naming you files makes sure that it does NOT have any capitalized letters. it'll be better if you version it, that is, your first first version will have a _a1 at the end.

    Ok, thanks guys. I've been using a rolling numbering scheme until now anyway so I've got older versions just in case... so that should be fine. For now I'll put up the .bsp for simplicity, but will try to put up compressed versions later.
