    I thought it would be a nice change of pace :) Friday night we can hop in the server and fly around the stock maps. Talk about Valve's detail work, how they optimized stuff, etc. Very informal, and you might even learn something :p Since I wanna give as many people as possible a chance to participate, multiple meetings can be setup as needed. Right now this is slated for 1800 U.S. Central http://www.timetemperature.com/tzus/time_zone.shtml You can also just check the Steam group, which auto adjusts to your time.

    Would probably be a neat idea to set the server with cheats and dev enabled for a session or something and enlighten to invaluable console commands that can help the newbies to the more advanced parts of level optimisation.

    wireframe.. visleafs etc.

    Let em check it out that way would be pretty amusing for all.

    I'll try to come, if i'm not too busy with school or anything. Would seem like a neat opportunity to uncover not only the regular detailing tricks, but some not know to most of us yet either...

    I'll try my best to be there, I think this could be a great event if it doesn't turn into some kind of spamfest or disorganised mess.

    maybe password protecting the server would prevent spammage, only members of the forum would be permitted entry or something.

    Yeah, you can wreak a lot of havoc on a server with cheats on. I know for a fact there's a simple way to completely crash a server with a single command with cheats on.

    Something like ent_playerspawn or something, password is defiantly needed to keep the lifeless morons out :p I'm also wondering if we can do something to disable rounds or something like that, because as hydro is a great map, is switches rounds very frequently, which may hinder our mapping discussion...

    Well I'd love to come and join you all (I'm *always* looking at Valve's maps) but the 31st is Halloween. So... maybe next week.
