    Hey everyone, new around here! So I've come to request someone to make a map for my trade server. Thanks for just considering it, and looking into my info/post.

    So some quick and dirty details: I have the basics, but for the most part you have creative freedom. In the map layout below, I've left in a spot where you can put map credits if you'd like, include a URL or anything you want. It's for a trade server, and I'd also like as much in-game content used as possible, to keep the map size to a very minimum.

    The layout isn't something you have to follow, placement wise, it's just to show everything I am aiming to have included. Also, the scaling isn't even close.

    That's the basics, if you are interested, you can add me on Steam(Link), and we can talk details, such as what all rooms/places are about, and what you want in return (if anything).

    Thanks for your time. :)

    I've had two people contact me so far about making this map. Both a bit hard to get a full conversation with. So I am still looking for someone currently. :)

    Well, for anyone who might view this topic in the future, may it be from Google, or anything. This website is pretty much useless. I posted this exact same topic over at GameBanana at the same time as this one, and I have got 4 replies from GameBanana, and not even a slight question or inquiry here. Not to mention, this site doesn't have that many maps in general.

    My point being, if you are looking for a map, use GameBanana, most of the maps here are reposts from maps there, and you can get support from the creator. Or if your looking for a map/mod made, same thing, go there.

    I will probably get flamed from members here for this, but I probably will never be back here to even view the replies, though in general it will probably just get deleted.

    My post here was clear, contains good grammar, and I even offered to discuss payment if needed, there is no reason why it shouldn't have got even a slight bite on interest. So if anything, I guess if this does get removed, then I know even the staff agrees.

    Anyway, /endrant.

    The Thing is with this forum, we are based on making maps which are based on game play and making things to a high standard.
    We arn't really a Trade or Idle mappers here, its not that we don't want to its that we find it will be pointless wasting time of it.
    As you said Game Banana gave you some reply's as their community is heavily based of items and custom content as such, I'm sorry that we couldn't help you make this but I you need any help or questions about mapping in the future feel free to ask.

    The reason no one replied is no one here want to spend the time to make a map for someone else. It's not a particularly hard concept to understand. Also I think the whole community can agree, if you want a trade map made for you, gamebananna.com is a much better bet.

    The maps made here are usually trying to be used for stock gameplay aka not trade or prophunt or saxtonhale. The reason this section of the forum exists is for models and textures predominantly, it's just we had people come here for map requests and it makes the most sense for them to be in this section too.

    Don't be mad that people aren't willing to put in many hours of their free time to make a map for your server for some steam cash and the people that will do this for you, you should maybe consider how much you maybe exploiting them.

    One thing that raises an eyebrow for me is your claim we stole maps from them, can you provide some form of evidence for that in any way? as I am fairly sure we didn't and if maps on here are on gamebanana then it was not us who stole them but more likely the other way round

    I know you said you probably won't visit this thread again, but could you give some examples of this? AFAIK most (if not all) maps developed here are made by members of TF2M, and I'd be extremely surprised (and disappointed) if an established member of this community ever stole a map from another site/person.

    EDIT: dammit valeria stop stealing my thoughts

    It doesn't matter if you were clear or had good grammer, if your idea wasn't well received. A trade server also doesn't need it's own custom map, a trade server should just have the really common maps as many players detour around a download.
    Your picture also wasn't very clear, you need to sketch it out not make it a puzzle.

    Genious. I couldn't make a more idiotic statement if I devoted my whole life to it.

    the pain in the glutes is strong with this one
