    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.
    __Only use if you aren't available for the whole testing period and wish to attend your map.
    Would you like the SourceTV demo of the test?
    __These are automatically recorded at all times.
    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 2 hours of testing.
    Last map can exceed the limit so long as most of the testing happens within the 2 hour period(30 minute test starting at 8:40 GMT is allowed, 30 minute test starting at 8:50 GMT isn't)

    I can do it :p

    E: BTW: The time limit is now 2 hours, so the last map would be cp_morras_castle_a11 (starts 7:50 PM)

    And I have Highlander 9v9 ladder match at 8:00 PM, so I have to go before that.

    Well start hosting gamedays yourself and over 3 hours in row. It is not a easy job :D

    Well, no. But there will be more gamedays, don't worry :p

    Thats not really fair to drop the ball so rudely.

    In fact I can host gameday if you are going to drop out like that.

    There is the reason why only 4 maps, it was on the 1st post. (That was my idea, because I think 3 hours is too much for the host and for the players who want to attend whole gameday)

    TPG, if you want host 3 hour gameday at this place it is okay for me. IMO 3 hour testing is too much. People start leaving at the end...

    Don't worry guys, a lot of people listed mid-August as the best time they could start, so we will be seeing more gamedays in the coming weeks.

    Yes, and I can probably host every single Wednesday. I'll contact to Okrag when I am sure that I cannot :p

    I suppose I could take over the hosting once you leave (no idea what I have to do besides switching maps though). Cause a 4 map gameday isnt much of a gameday to be perfectly honest.

    Look, the schedule have already been made.

    If you want to host 3 hour gamedays, just send a message to Okrag (or use this). It is that simple. If I said I want to host 2 hour gamedays that should be okay for you because I just could not host at all.

    And because it seems that it is not okay for others, I could host gamedays on Tuesdays, because Tuesday doesn't seem to be so popular day for gamedays...

    E: And imo it is better to give good feedback to 4 maps than short feedback to 6 maps... (I presume you are giving feedback to maps you play on gameday)
