    Last event got a little crazy with the scheduling...

    This event , Everyone who submit a map get a 30 minute slot. If more then 10 people submit a map, then every has a 20 minute slot. No one needs to rush out half baked maps to get the "good" slots anymore.

    Now if you have a map that is closing in on "Final" status, I will consider that map having a 40 minute (if 10 or more submit, 30 minute) slot. Still counts towards the 10 maps.
    Event will begin at:

    Central European: 8:00PM
    UK: 7:00PM
    Eastern: 2:00PM
    Central: 1:00PM
    Mountain: 12:00PM
    Western: 11:00AM

    Event will take place at:

    US TF2Maps.net Server: 72.233.93.233:27015

    Submission Rules:

    Please submit all maps by 4 PM EST on Friday

    Map Submission Structure:
    Map Name (ex. ctf_mycoolmap_b2 )
    Link to map download
    *downloads from TF2maps.net preferred but not required.
    NEW! Your Timezone, Required info so I can schedule you in properly.
    Optional: Link to discussion thread.

    since now there are no more set number of slots there isn't a need to rush, take your time to create your maps so we don't need to make last minute changes (however I will still be willing to delay the deadline if a last minute glitch is discovered.)

    here's my submission:
    Map Name: pl_reservoir_1_3a
    http://www.fpsbanana.com/maps/74724
    slot size: i'd prefer a 30 this time.
    Link to discussion thread:
    http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=4665


    this time can i have an early slot - better for my own timezone, and avoids a drop off in attendance.
    cp3 is really hard to test with fewer than 6 a side. and i really need to know if it needs more cover and/or more access routes

    Another suggested fix for dropping player counts at the ends: move the gameday earlier but an hour or so, its a 7pm start in the UK and most of europe is ahead of GMT meaning most from the mainland will have the gameday starting at 8, so it ends well into sunday morning for them. Unless there is a very good reason for it not starting any earlier I can't see why it was ever moved back an hour.

    me and immortal ran various tests on the server...

    playing a valve arena map works, the valve map played after the arena map works
    playing a custom arena map works, the custom map played after the arena map works
    having someone download either map 1st works
    an arena game played through to the end does not crash, the map following arena played through to the end does not crash

    the untested includes...

    a test on the server with full load (24 players)
    and the fixed time limit commands, the last test had arena only last for one round, so the new configuration is untested...

    yeah...

    These are just questions, but you can consider them a placeholder for my official entry (if edits don't time out anyway, I'll probably work on it all the way until Friday)


    *Can you put a link to the instructions to upload ones map to TF2maps.net (and pm me with a preferred utility to bz2 it if that is also desired).
    **In the WIP forum? and if so how far along should one be before starting a WIP thread?

    Good to see arena is working.
    I know its been a pain for you guys, I appreciate you trying.
    It got on there at the end of the day and Immortal was trying to load my map, my comp crashed and I had to reboot :(

    Anyway, I'd like to get arena_medieval up if I can reserve a slot. Mid day would be great.

    But I've found an issue with the latest vers (b4) that I have already fixed, I didn't realize my water brush had to be surrounded (it was in displacements) so fire was buggy and stickies vanished.

    I won't be able to upload until thursday though. That'll be vers B4_v1, hopefully that will be a test for the final vers.
