    The last time I did this, it went over quite well. I figured what better time to do it again than at the start of our awesome contest :D As I'm sure most of you know; school, group, and rl stuff have prevented me from doing any serious mapping work. However, I am rather knowledgeable when it comes to the Source engine. So this Friday evening, I will be hosting an event on our U.S. server to go over the basics of details and design. For those of you who have previously attended this event, it's going to be more of the same. I will be hosting an advanced version of the event sometime next week. As before, there is no sign up. First come first served, and it would probly help to bring a mic ;) We will begin at 7:00pm/1900 US Central Standard Time. Hope to see you all there!

    Nice, school will finally let out for me, so I'd love to be there. No how is actaully run? Do we all go into spectator or do we run around in game?

    Also I can provide us a ventrilo server so we can talk and save us the hassle of typing a bunch. Vent Ip: vent13.gameservers.com Port: 4203

    Also, if you don't know what ventrilo is it is the best Voip client out there and you can download the client version here -> http://www.ventrilo.com/download.php

    Seeing each other would be exceptionally difficult if we are all spectators :p The way it works is I have an agenda of sorts, but I will encourage everyone to bring questions and ideas. Everyone gets noclip to fly around and examine various parts of the Valve maps. Basically, we'll just be talking about specific techniques, things that Valve does, and why their maps turn out so incredibly awesome.

    Ok. Do you want to use my ventrilo server? It would be much easier then having to type all that stuff up. Normal Conversation > 9000 > typing ingame

    badwater is an exception.

    I'd be willing to take people through Yukon and point out some of the optimization techniques etc... Fridays I can do :)

    I spotted one! That tunnel from 3rd to 2nd which has a rise in the middle! Do I get a cookie?

    Ok, here's a question... Does this mean no Friday gameday? If so, could perhaps Saturday's gameday be an EU gameday, so that us Europeans will get one day of decent ping as well?

    It is a few hours after gameday ends... which I have no intention of dropping.

    I'll be there, unless something else pops up (which is very unlikely).

    I could definitely stand to learn some optimization techniques...

    :( I probably won't be able to make it! And this sounds awesome!

    Will there be a SourceTV Demo?

    EDIT: Is there? I really want to attend but, it will be impossible.

    Yeah I could use a sourceTV demo too. My computer kept crashing on me and I wasn't there for most of it.

    I'd put them up but I don't know what maps were done... if someone can list them for me I can upload them, otherwise you'll have to wait for ID to do it.

    I forgot all about this until I was playing TF2 on the server with my little sister (23) who is interested in level design. I'm trying to get her to learn hammer rather than unrealed, she stuck through almost the whole thing, and asked some questions, I explained to her things that she didn't know. Hopefully this helped my efforts in getting her to map for TF2, rather than some obscure unreal mod only 10 people have ever heard of. I'll be showing her hammer in person in a week or so when I go to visit home. :D

    :( I couldn't come. You guys had the event start right when the, Final For The Stanley Cup, Red Wings Against The Penguins, The Most Important Hockey Game Of The Year And The Third Most Important Sports Event Of The Year After Super-Bowl and Basketball, started. Also I'm a Detroit fan. Since I live in Detroit

    Silly ID. :p
