    Game Day XVII Recap


    • There were these people, and they did some stuff.
    Game Day: Part XVIII - August 23/24
    ** Advanced Disclaimer: This event is mainly to have fun, so all rules stated in this thread can, and probably will, be broken. **

    When:


    • August 23 @ 2:00 pm EST on TF2Maps.net home server.
    • August 24 @ 12:00 pm EST on Colt's UK Server
    Where:

    • Server configuration request / statement:
      • rtv, votemap, etc... turned off please
      • 30 minute map rounds
      • Start with testing maps, 30 minutes a map flexibly guaranteed (If we are running way off schedule, deal with it all maps are recorded by Source TV).

    • August 24th: Youme's Custom Maps server: 84.45.84.166:27015
      • Links will take you straight to the server.
    Game Day Plan and Rules, Read these or I sic DJive on you.

    • Use either the TF2Maps.net website, FPSBanana, or a private website to host your maps. Do not use Rapidshare or other crappy filehosts.
    • Before your submission is accepted there must be a downloadable version of your map.
    • All map names must follow the guidelines specified in this thread.
    • 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 will not happen on the actual game day unless there are technical difficulties. If you have a problem with a map, voice your concerns prior to the game day.
    • Game Day Structure:
      • The game day has two parts, testing, fun play.
        1. Map testing, takes place first, all maps submitted for testing purposes will receive 30 minutes of play time. Map testing slots will be assigned on a first come / first served basis. I will attempt to accommodate time preferences to a limited extent.
        2. Fun / General play time, any maps that general users want to play together on certain maps.
    • Map Submission Structure:
      • * Map Name (ex. ctf_mycoolmap_b2 )
      • * Link to map download
      • * Map is for testing: Yes / No
      • Optional: Link to discussion thread.
      • * Denotes required field.
    Map List:
    - All times listed in this section are EST.
    - Submission deadline is Friday, August 22nd @ 5:30 pm
    - To kick off the game day and while we wait for people to join, we will start off with a currently popular custom map that I pick. Because I am awesome.

    The reason the rules are in place is because this thread can get really messy and time consuming to update if I need to personally hunt down every map that is submitted.

    To answer your question, yes I read the forum, but as you should know I am not a mapper and while I am interested in the maps that come out, I am primarily here for the interaction with the community. Also, this quarter of school has had an extremely heavy workload and I have not had as much time to devote to the forum as I would like. As such, I have not been very active on the forums for the last month or so and do not know all the recent developments.

    So, in closing thanks for the link and I will update the main post.

    P.S these are not my forums, they are DrPeppers forums.

    ctf_aerospace is up for testing!

    * * ctf_aerospace_a7_09.bsp.bzp
    * * http://forums.tf2maps.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=376
    * * Map is for testing: Yes
    * * Discuss: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=2157

    I recommend to download and unpack the map prior to gameday as it's quite a large one!

    Also, if you are playing on gameday and this map is next, it could be good to let players from outside of TF2maps.net know it's a large download so they don't leave during loading ;)

    I will unfortunately not be able to make it this weekend. I thank everyone in advance for playing, your feedback has been made of win and awesome so far.

    Question: If I were to submit a map that had a point_servercommand to strip specific weapons, would that be alright, or would you prefer to have a version without the point_servercommand and strip the weapons yourselves?

    Map Name: pl_substation_a3
    Link to map download: http://www.cometababy.com/tf2/pl_substation.zip (Direct to Zip)
    Map is for testing: Yes
    Link to discussion thread: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=3215

    08/17/08 Note: Alpha 3 is now uploaded. Download at will.
    08/16/08 Note: As of today right now map is in Alpha2, I will be setting up the spawns and a couple other game play elements tomorrow and will have Alpha3 up, this is the build I would like to test.

    Also I can not guarantee being here on Sat the 23rd, if possible to put my map into rotation on the 24th so I can be there for the game play that would be great. 1230pm slot on Sunday would be Prime!

    Thanks to everyone helping out to put this together. I look forward to checkin' out as many maps as possible.

    -Bobby

    2 things.

    1. The title is auto-generated from our calender utility, and it is a span of time, not two separate times.
    2. Do you want your Alpha2 or Alpha3 tested and which do you have linked currently?

    1. Awesome, Do they really last 8 hours? :blink:
    2. Alpha3 to be tested. Link goes to Zip file that currently contains Alpha2 and will be updated to contain Alpha3 tomorrow.

    Thanks again,

    -Bobby

    well, we get started at 4:00 pm EST and it will ussually keep going strong until around 8:00 pm EST, so about 4 hours.

    As for sunday's I can not really say because I tend to be busy on Sunday.

    Just to make sure:

    ANYONE WHO WAS ONE OF THE FIRST 6 PEOPLE TO DOWNLOAD CP_WAREHOUSE_B1: REDOWNLOAD IT, I HAD TO RECOMPILE.

    If you aren't sure, then redownload it anyway, I don't want anyone to have trouble joining up.

    Be sure to post here when the file is updated so I can add it to the rotation.
