    Map Pack:
    USGameday29thJan.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.
    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.
    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:.

    Information
    • First come first serve, until the 2 hour period is filled.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH 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)

    Whenever, if I can make it, I will. If I can't, I wont. And if I can't, I'll grab the STV myself.

    SourceTV demo would be cool as I may not be able to stay for the whole thing.

    Technically you're supposed to have a thread if you want to be a part of gameday, you should really make one, if it wasn't you i'm not sure it'd be allowed as a thread shows people are serious about developing their map and being a part of the feedback process here.

    IIRC this map actually got tested 2 days ago too, so there's a bunch of TF2m guys already waiting to feedback it.

    Technically, you're wrong. There's nothing in the rules that says you have to have a thread, I checked first.


    It was _a1 that was run for 20 minutes, most of the people there were being vocal too, pretty sure I got all the feedback I was gunna get.

    (For some reason your last sentence reminded me of those hot shingles in your area ads, "Hot mappers in your community are waiting to give you their feedback tonight")

    EDIT: If you must have a thread, 253962

    I know it's not in the rules (any more, it used to be), that's why i said technically instead of telling you you had to make one. We used to have it to prevent people from taking limited gameday slots, disappearing, wasting our more active members time.

    It's nice if you have a thread, it gives a good impression to other newer members and shows a level of cooperation. That's all i'm saying. A lot of people wanted to comment on your map but there was no thread. I was surprised there wasn't one and recommended you make one. Not sure why you're arguing about not needing one. I was hardly telling you off.

    Because you said technically, when that was completely the wrong word to say and you just misused it again. If there was something in the rules about it, then technically I'd have been breaking said rule, however since there was nothing, I, technically, was in breach of no rules.

    By saying "technically that's breaking the rules" you meant "You are definitely, by the most exact and strict interpretation of the rules, you're breaking the rules" Which is just not what you meant at all.

    This brings up a nice point. The Gameday rules need to be updated. I'll work on that.
