    To celebrate our imminent destruction or survival, whichever it may be, let's play some tf2 on custom maps! Hurry now and get out a playable version in the next 24 hours so we can tell you how amazing you are! Not that it will matter, since there will be zombies or werewolves or meteors or something knocking at the door.

    Where: Official Server:
    Gameday Host: nightwatch

    Event will begin at:
    Pacific (PDT) : 8:00 PM
    Mountain (MDT) : 9:00 PM
    Central (CDT) : 10:00 PM
    Eastern (EDT) : 11:00 PM

    The following on the 22nd of December, not the 21st, since you live so far away! You might be dead already though, so you might not make it anyhow.

    UK : 4: AM
    Central Europe: 5:00 AM
    Aus Western (AWST) : 11:00 AM
    Aus Central (ACST) : 12:30 PM

    Map Pack:
    December 21st

    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)
    • 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).
    • 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.
    Would you like the SourceTV demo of the test?
    __These are automatically recorded at all times so there's no need to ask any more :thumbup:.

    • 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 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

    Apologies to the purists who realize I probably have the times completely wrong. Bear with me as I'm still pretty new to running gamedays, and sorry for the late notice.

    TIME : Sadly I probably won't be present for the gameday due to time zones so I don't mind when the map is played.

    The gameday was cancelled because the server hadn't updated to the new sourcemod patch to go with the newest tf2 update, or something I don't really understand. I'll try to host another one soon and your maps will go in it!
