    Map Pack:
    Gameday23Sep.rar - Uploaded

    Rules for Map Submitters:
    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 standard play.

    __This means no melee, class restricted, too small for 24 players, or otherwise gimmicky maps. However, Medieval maps will be allowed under decision of gameday host.
    You may NOT reserve a submission without a download.
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.
    Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission.


    Submission Format:
    • Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    • 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).
    • TF2Maps.net discussion thread number.
    __The scheduling system uses this number, I need it, not the post number.
    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).
    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.


    Information
    • First come first serve, until the 2 hour period is filled.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH/CTF/SD gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    • Last map can exceed the limit so long as the testing starts within the 2 hour period
    • 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)
    • Any maps that have been tested in the previous Gamedays that week (regardless of version/changes) will be given lower priority over other maps submitted to said test

    Empathy, please read the rules. Only versioned maps are allowed. In addition, if you're gonna bother to archive it, please bzip it rather than zip or 7z it.

    Actually, by this rule:

    and with CTF only being 20 minutes, you would have had plenty of time for Riever's map, only going over by 5 minutes of the 2 hour period.

    EDITED: I forgot to copy the 2hr rule.

    You're right, I added wrong.

    In any case I am not sure what happened with gameday as I had to leave due to more important obligations.

    Thanks, I appreciate it. Demos are recorded automatically so I'll bug some people to post them later.
