    Game Day: Part XVII- August 2nd, August 3rd

    Hey guys, judging by the forums, it seems that a number of maps have
    testable stages at the moment or coming up soon. Due to this we'll open a gameday for the weekend; after initial troubles, a lot of good testing was done last weekend.

    There's a new condition to be entered into the rotation for the gameday weekend: All problems known by the mapper, not related to gameplay testing, must be solved before submission. This means build your cubemaps, have your map lighted, have the spawn gates work correctly, visualizers must be in place, etc etc. Gameplay testing is for ironing out details you've never thought of and looking at the gameplay's natural flow- not hearing players get griefed over something obvious. This is not an entirely concrete rule, but follow it, please.

    When:


    • August 2nd @ 4:00 pm EST (1:00 pm PST | 9:00 pm GMT)
    • August 3rd @ 4:00 pm EST (1:00 pm PST | 9:00 pm GMT)
      Both Events will be held on our home server this weekend, at least for now.
    Where: TF2Maps.net Server. CONNECT link below :)

    • Server configuration request / statement:
      • rtv, votemap, etc... turned off please
      • 30 minute map rounds
      • Start with testing maps, 30 minutes a map flexibly guaranteed (If we are running way off schedule, deal with it all maps are recorded by Source TV). NOTE: Depending on number of submissions, this time limit may be changed to 20 minutes with a bonus round or two after the rotation determined by vote amongst the played maps.
    • TF2Maps.net Official Server: 72.233.93.233:27015
      • Links will take you straight to the server.
    Game Day Plan and Rules, Read these or I sic DJive on you.

    • Use either the TF2Maps.net website (PREFERRED), FPSBanana, or a private website to host your maps. Do not use Rapidshare or other crappy filehosts. Mediafire works though.
    • Before your submission is accepted there must be a downloadable version of your map.
    • All map names must follow the guidelines specified in this thread. That means NO CAPS.
    • If you'd like to be helpful, include your map in .bz2 format.
    • All debate over what maps are submitted, what maps are played, etc. must be handled in this thread PRIOR to the game day. Once the map submission deadline is passed the rotation is set. Map rotation changes will not happen on the actual game day unless there are technical difficulties. If you have a problem with a map, voice your concerns prior to the game day.
    • Game Day Structure:
      Map testing, takes place first, all maps submitted for testing purposes will receive 30 minutes of play time. Map testing slots will be assigned on a first come / first served basis. I will attempt to accommodate time preferences to a limited extent.

    [*]Map Submission Structure:
    • * Map Name (ex. ctf_mycoolmap_b2 )
    • * Link to map download
    • * Map is for testing: Yes / No
    • Optional: Link to discussion thread.
    • * Denotes required field.

    - All times listed in this section are EST unless otherwise noted.
    - Due to the late posting of the thread, submission deadline is a little later than normal.
    - Submission deadline is Friday, August 1st @ 9pm EST. Slightly flexible on a per-case basis, talk to me on Steam if you have Qs.
    Testing Maps:
    1: cp_mountaindepot_b2u
    2: cp_backfire_round1_a2
    3: cp_cagematch_b2
    4: cp_entropy_b1a
    5: cp_cliffside_a5
    6: tc_street
    7: cp_backfire_round1_a3
    8: cp_backfire_round3_a1
    9: pl_cave_b6
    10: tc_meridian_a4b

    Sunday rotation based on author requests/playability results from yesterday:
    1: cp_mountaindepot_b2u
    2: cp_entropy_b1a
    3: pl_cave_b6
    Possibly intermission with cagematch?
    4: tc_meridian_a4b
    5. cp_dixie_a3... lolz moderator pwrs

    P.S. I copy + pasted most of this info from my last post, if you find a typo tell me.

    Map is for testing: Yes

    To keep in mind: I live at GMT+2 timezone, that means that the gameday testings start at 11 PM for me. That is why I rushed to be the first poster, as it would be nice to get the map tested before it is morning. I've done a couple of playtests with my friend, but really can't get a bigger crowd, so this gameday seems really useful.
    And a question: Are the testing maps being tested on both days, or on one only?


    Edit: You asked for typos.. well, this is no typo, this is something far more serious! I assume that I still got my submission in-time, as this topic is pretty much newer than the deadline. ;)
    "- Submission deadline is Friday, July 12th @ 9pm EST. Slightly flexible on a per-case basis, talk to me on Steam if you have Qs."

    Edit #2: Wanted to ask if it is possible to test the map with nocrits enabled. I really hate crits. :D

    Ive done a reasonable amount of testing with a small number of people and its playable, only flaw is that overzealous scouts seem to keep getting stuck in an open displacement <_< so...yeah...
    so...if it comes up, laugh at them, then kill them ;)
    oh...and its already on the server btw
    and one last thing...unfortunately I can't be there this weekend, so its important that the discussion thread is used, CornontheCod, or nossie will likely look for me anyways

    You can't reserve spots. You either have something people can download or you don't. =P

    Yeah, you're gonna be able to get into the rotation as long as you post before the deadline, but order is first come first server- with the map version in hand.

    Yeah, I just wanted to make sure it would be played this time instead of the admins finding that it wasn't on the map list come last Gameday

    Unless I'm just dense and can't take a hint.

    last game day had some technical issues, hopefully this time we can get everything together in time, and with the map pack idea Dr. Pepper suggested we shouldnt have as much of a redirect problem.

    If possible, could this map be played right after MrAlbobo's? we are working on the map together, these are just separate rounds. Would be nice if they could be played together.

    keep in mind mine is round 3, so it should be a little harder for blu to win this round!
