    Lokalen.nu (Swedish gamehost) has now opened a server dedicated to testing maps in development.

    213.115.191.51:27025
    Join server!

    Lokalen.nu has been hosting servers for tf2 since it's release and has a large, well established playerbase. There are no mods or addons on the servers.

    Timelimit for each map is 20 minutes.

    Right now the map rotation includes (in no particular order):
    pl_halfacre_b3
    cp_timber_a5
    cp_silvertrail_a2a
    pl_swift_rc1
    pl_frontier_b1
    ctf_aerospace_b4
    pl_cashworks_b1
    pl_blastoff_b1
    pl_waste_a5
    (more to come later today/tomorrow)

    The maplist will be updated on a weekly basis (roughly). If there are no suggestions for maps to be added, a few from the previous tf2maps.net gameday will be chosen. I will try to keep the map rotation fresh, and by that I mean removing maps that has already been tested thoroughly to make room for other, newer or unnoticed maps.

    What I want now is maps. The only requirement is that they are fully playable. That includes health/ammo and a working map objective, atleast basic lighting among other things.

    If the server is empty, don't be afraid to "start" it. Where one goes others are sure to follow. Just playing gives me data on win/loss ratio that I can provide to the mappers.
    Or you can look it up yourselves at: http://stats.lokalen.nu/ps/maps.php

    This server is great, I've played there a few times before, and I generally like the Lokalen servers. And since I'm right next to Sweden, it's one of those rare cases when I get awesome ping.

    EDIT: So, would this server host the first alpha of my map, then? I'd love to get mine on there if it's possible (it's not out yet though).

    Sure, when you got your map in a playable state we'll be glad to host it.

    Excellent news, I like the Lokalen servers (always played there when I was in Sweden). I'll be sure to give you a new map if ever I get one in a playable state!

    Repository and frontier were both added yesterday. I also updated the first post with a link to our psychostats page.
    Don't forget you can change the map on the server with the "rtv" command if you want to.
