    Map Pack:
    Gameday5thFeb.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)

    You probably picked the worst time for that, one hour after the start is the Super Bowl... Even EU people (from what I've been told) watch and enjoy this once-a-year spectacle!!!

    I had no idea the superbowl was on (or care tbh) i'm not sure how many people that really takes out of the playtesting maps demographic, US or EU, but regardless I'll host it anyway and see how it goes. I appreciate the heads up though

    No problem, I was just making sure you wouldn't get mad or anything if nobody showed up (not saying nobody will, I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised). Though the only way to find out whether people will come or not is to host it!

    The kinds of people who make maps for TF2 generally aren't huge sports fans in my experience, and I think you're grossly overestimating how popular the Super Bowl is outside of 'Murica (it isn't)

    We may not be sports fans... But I am a HUGE fan of the commercials.
