    Hi all,

    Long time MIA from Source (6 years now, jeez), just started messing around with Hammer again today. First off, I've got to say the quality and availability of tutorials and prefab content on this site has come a long way, you guys are amazing. Its been a joy to play with Source again today.

    I wanted to start working on something for fun. Nothing crazy, probably a tight KOTH. First thing I noticed was there hasnt been any activity in the Server Events section in like 6 months? And almost a year for the US.

    Does TF2Maps still run gamedays/playtests? Are they just organised differently now?

    We do, they're just impromptu map tests now.


    We usually have one every day.

    If you're part of the steam group we send out announces for when we test them.

    Yeah, just add the map to the imp list on Discord and it will be added to the next imp.
    They are daily, though EU imp servers are down at the moment, so it's jsut the NY server.

    Thats great its still so active! Thanks for the info.

    Do the impromptus still follow the same rules as regular? For example, would testing a CP concept without building the rest of the map (just spawn > split corridors > CP) be possible? If the CP concept is garbage the whole map will go in the bin :p
