    Map Pack:
    Gameday30Sep.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

    Whoops you're right. I'm a dope.

    FYI, depending on player count, the first map is often extended about 5 minutes to avoid getting a shitty test.

    I suppose this should be played not right before or after ferrum, since it's another 3CPAD map, but whatever. Like tarry I'd like a populated test though. It's also already uploaded.

    Sorry Seba and A BA Survivor but we hit the time limit exactly at two hours before you posted. I did upload your maps though, try to get an impromptu going since I'm the only one doing gamedays lately.

    Egan, in the future please use Dropbox or our own hosting here on TF2M.

    Riever, I almost disqualified your map due to not having a prefix, but decided it was fine. Next time put some kind of prefix on though. Then I almost disqualified it for the design, because you're using tons of non-TF2 assets, the map is sprawling and mazelike, there are many features that function more like a trade map and the goal system is bizarre and confusing, but I decided to let it in because I told you I would in PM before I saw what it was. I think it's better if everyone gives you feedback rather than me, anyway, so I am leaving it in last just in case.

    And just a general note, the only thing I really need in terms of downloads/threads is the ID number. Not a link, an explanation or anything else. All I do is copy and paste the number into a template. Not a big deal but don't go to any lengths to give me a fancy URL if you don't need to. Save the 10 seconds.

    Sorry if it's too early to be bumptious, but can someone post the demos to the gameday?
