    Game Day Part VIII
    When:
    • March 29th, 2008
    • 8:00 pm GMT, 4:00 pm EST, 1:00 pm PST
    Where:
    • TF2Maps.net partner server Colt's Playground: 84.45.84.166:27015
      • Link should connect you straight to the server
    • If someone has a US server that they are willing to let us use for ALL our events (I don't want to skip around to different servers each week), are willing to give us Admin, and are willing to be responsive to map upload requests then contact Immortal-D or DrPepper.
    Maps: Submission Deadline - Friday, March 28 - 4:00 pm EST
    1. *note* we will most likely NOT have a password on the server so any maps submitted can still be download by the general public and there is a chance they might like it enough to try and post it to the internet without first asking permission. Keep this in mind.
    2. Map Submission Protocol
      1. All debate over what maps are submitted, what maps are played, etc must be handled in this thread PRIOR to the game day. Once the map submission deadline is passed the rotation is set. Map rotation changes should not happen on the actual game day, you will have multiple days to air your woes prior to the actual game day.
      2. There will be two parts to the game day:
        1. Map Testing
        2. General get together where we play maps requested by our members in this thread.
      3. Map Testing will take place first, all maps submitted for testing purposes with receive 30 minutes of play time. Map testing slots will be assigned as maps come in.
      4. During General get together we will play the maps requested in this thread
    3. Please include the following information when submitting a map:
      1. Map Name (ex. ctf_CoolestMapEver_b1)
      2. Link to map download (ex. http://www.coolsite.com/ctf_coolestMapEver_b1.bsp )
      3. Map is for testing: Yes / No
      4. Optional: Map Discussion thread
    Map List:

    wow...thats...hilarious...
    i just pmed 3 admins over the week about offering a US server, i believe the Djive has put it in the admin section

    but...the odds of the arrangement being ready by Saturday are low though...I will not be able to make it, but the owner of the server might be back by then...so...hope for it :D

    I would love if you guys can test out cp_heavy. It's not pretty, but detail will come later. ;)

    I'll also see if I can make make a quick alpha of my big map, ctf_hive, which is my current big project.

    Sin, It will be played on a 24man full server. The map is very small the last I played it, i would say 4v4 or less. With 12v12 you may get some very negative feedback I'd hate to see.

    I'll be submitting my map again. Map is optimized enough that I get nearly the same fps on it with a geforce8800gtx that I get on valve maps. If that's not enough... enh I don't know what is but I'm still working on optimization. Anyway should be fully playable and is definitely suitable for 24 or more players.

    Map name: cp_spywinder_beta

    I've had 2 offers of U.S. servers. You know who you are, so get back to me as soon as you can. Also, yay gameday :) Hopefully we can get a few gimmicks for this one, like admin vs. everyone, or all-Heavy boxing match.

    Ok, well, I will leave it up to the site admins to organize the US based server and once that is in line we will see about how we are going to divide our time between the Colts server and the US based one.

    Oh, and the Event notice is up to date as of this post

    edit 2
    - R3dRuM, I dont have control over what maps get uploaded to the server, I create the list, then Colt has to upload + set the rotation, as such I need to get the map list to him at a reasonable hour. He is on GMT time which is 4 hours ahead of Easter Time, so that means even though its 4:00 pm EST that I set as the map submission end, that is 8:00 pm GMT. So while I would be happy to add your map to the list if it is much later than that then I am not sure how well it will work out. I will send Colt Seavers a PM for the latest time he can get stuff uploaded and get back to you.

    I would like cp_science2_b3 to get some playtime. It's just about ready for final release, but I want to make sure I haven't inadvertently introduced any bugs with the recent additions.

    PS: My name doesn't have a 'c' in it. :p

    i'm around till 2pm on Friday - away fishing for the weekend. But - there are 4 other Red admins who can load up maps : just need to give them a shake on the forum. We'll do all we can to get ALL required maps up and ready.

    Hello,
    I just started mapping and i joined this group to find help and feed back.
    So this is my first map I'd like to try out. It looks a bit harcore, quake style. I tried it in CTF mode but so far i'm not pleased with the result and general flow.
    The CP map looks better and well, I'd like to see it played to tweak it more.

    So here it is :
    Map name : cp_hangar_b1.bsp
    Link : http://pourri.free.fr/tf2/maps/cp_hangar_b1.bsp
    Map is for testing: Yes

    Thx

    Could you move Stag to around 6:00 est, or 6:30 if we get enough? I won't be home until then I don't think.

    Added cp_hangar to the rotation, and bumped Stag back to 6:00, if someone else submits a map for testing I will move Stag back to 6:30
