    TF2Maps.net Official EU Server: 178.63.146.2:27015
    Gameday Host: Fr0z3n :D


    Event will begin at:
    Central European: 6:00 PM
    UK: 5:00 PM
    Eastern: 12:00 PM (noon)
    Central: 11:00 AM
    Mountain: 10:00 AM
    Pacific: 9:00 AM
    Find your time here

    Map Submission Format
    Required: Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    Required: TF2Maps.net file ID number, OR url to offsite download.
    __BZ2 compressed files are greatly appreciated to save time for the host.
    __May NOT be a hosting site like mega-upload (wait times, codes, excessive ads, etc).
    First time submissions, Required: TF2Maps.net discussion thread number.
    __My scheduling system uses this number, I need it, not the post number. (picture)
    If you need a specific time slot: Available time & your time zone.
    If your submission is a single stage out of a multi-stage map, please mention this. (orphaned stage)
    If you are a donator with upload abilities, please say if you have already uploaded the map.

    Testing options
    • A time extension may be requested for mature non-arena maps in need of fine tuning (this includes orphaned stages).

    You can keep the same TF2Maps.net file number by clicking edit on your file's page and then simply putting a new file in the upload box. This makes it easier for you (don't have to update all your links!), easier for me, and less clutter on the site. (picture)

    Rules
    The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, proper spawns, not fullbright, etc.
    __The purpose of this testing is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs.
    Filename MUST be versioned. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, NOT ctf_example.bsp)
    __Do not rename a bsp after compile. The vmf must be renamed before compile.
    Filename must be all lowercase. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, NOT CTF_Example_A1.bsp)
    __Our Linux servers don't work with uppercase names.
    Map must be IN DEVELOPMENT, finished maps do not require testing.
    Map may NOT use a point_servercommand to alter any variables.
    Map must be designed for normal play.
    __This means no melee, class restricted, too small for 24 players, or otherwise gimmicky maps.

    • You may NOT reserve a submission without a download.
    • Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission.
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.


    Information
    • Submission deadline is 11 PM EST, 1 day prior.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    • Submissions will be limited to 3 hours of testing.
    Last map can exceed the limit so long as most of the testing happens within the 3 hour period(30 minute test starting at 2:40 EST is allowed, 30 minute test starting at 2:50 EST isn't)

    Sorry, I don't know how to make the fancy table like Okrag yet.
    Schedule:

    cp_process_a3 - Scorpio uprising
    cp_teddy_b4 - honeymustard
    cp_hanzmap_a11 -Hanz
    arena_multiplex_a6a - SirRaffi
    cp_mangroves_a2a - LeSwordfish
    cp_ruction_a3 - Nitram

    Each CP map gets 30 Mins, Arena_multiplex gets 15 mins.
    Total testing is 3hrs. 15 minutes (because I say so)

    Well, I have an orphaned stage I want to test, so hopefully there's room to squeeze me in. :)


    Map Name: cp_unearthed_a0

    Time: Any (If first, I'll just need to make sure I'm awake for then. ;) )

    This map is an orphaned stage (First stage of a potential 3 stage map).

    Since here was a ton of people I checked the first few maps. It filled up.

    Jailbreak wasn't included because of a map issue. I've notified the author.

    TheHarriboKid is hosting a US gameday on Tuesday.

    I think in future gamedays maps that havent been tested should get more priority. I see maps on schedule that I remember testing a lot of times, while the 2 new maps haven't made it.

    It's still a map that has been tested as opposed to a map that hasn't had a single test run on it. Somebody who had his map tested already has some knowledge of how the map plays and unless the new version is a complete overhaul, most of that knowledge will still be applicable to the new version. On the other hand, somebody who hasn't tested his map can't know anything about how it plays beyond unproved theory and playing with bots.

    I feel it would be better if new maps and new authors would get a little push in the beginning to get them going more easily.

    I have heard a lot of complaining about this too. Though, I think this spawns from the fact that in the past few weeks their hasn't been a lot of gamedays, and as such, a lack of testing for those who don't join chat.

    I have heard a lot of people complain that the same maps keep getting into the tests, although, the rules say they can only have 1 map in a gameday per week. I know a lot of people get frustrated by this. I will start up a thread in the Front Desk right now to start up a discussion about the gameday rules.

    Seeing as we kinda have new people running a majority of the gamedays (TheHarriboKid and myself) I don't see why we couldn't also look at the rules and update them.

    I apologize for if your map didn't get into testing this time around. It was either posted too late after a lot of maps or had an error in the map that made it unfit to play. I have to take the maps on a first come first serve basis.

    EDIT: Thread on this topic can now be found here
