    Edit 1: Moved to [Z] server, 8.6.3.232:27015

    We tried this once before, and it went quite well, despite my being unprepared for the sheer number of people who were interested. Anyways, I consider myself fairly knowledgeable, if only average in the talent department :mellow: The idea is we'll hop on a server and chat ingame about Valve's detailing work; specific techniques, little details, and basically why their maps turn out so awesome. This has the benefit of allowing us to physically point out stuff on the various maps. This time around however, I actually have a plan. So if you can't think of anything specific, no worries. The event will be on Friday evening, for anyone who doesn't have something better to do :p 7:00pm/1900 US Central at the EG server, 72.14.183.213:27015 Hope to see you all there!

    Perfect, I'll be there.

    I just hope there will be more serious discussion and less spam.

    I'll attempt to be there.

    Someone that is staying the whole time and is not going to be talking over mic much should record a demo.

    Or we could try and get source tv on there... that would be helpful for the future as well!

    I'll be there, I think the idea is great for inexperienced and experienced mappers alike.

    Now for the people not there at the actual event, how would we benefit from this?

    If we record a demo via SourceTV, anyone can watch it. And if not, you'll just have to wait for the next one. Or you know... start your own; http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=5461
