    TF2Maps.net Official EU Server: 85.234.148.93:29015
    Gameday Host: Owlruler


    Event will begin at:
    Central European: 8:00 PM
    UK: 7:00 PM
    Eastern: 2:00 PM
    Central: 1:00 PM
    Mountain: 12:00 PM
    Pacific: 11:00 AM
    Click for other zones.



    Map Submission Format
    Required: Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    Required: TF2Maps.net file ID number, OR url to offsite download.
    __BZ2 compressed files are greatly appreciated to save time for the host.
    __May NOT be a hosting site like mega-upload (wait times, codes, excessive ads, etc).
    First time submissions, Required: TF2Maps.net discussion thread number.
    __My scheduling system uses this number, I need it, not the post number. (picture)
    If you need a specific time slot: Available time & your time zone.
    __Only use if you aren't available for the whole testing period and wish to attend your map.
    Would you like the SourceTV demo of the test?
    __These are automatically recorded at all times.
    If your submission is a single stage out of a multi-stage map, please mention this. (orphaned stage)
    If you are a donator with upload abilities, please say if you have already uploaded the map.

    Testing options
    • For a CTF map you may request capture crits be turned off. (specify this version only or all versions)
    • For mature maps in need of balance testing you may request that alltalk be turned off.
    • A time extension may be requested for mature non-arena maps in need of fine tuning (this includes orphaned stages).

    You can keep the same TF2Maps.net file number by clicking edit on your file's page and then simply putting a new file in the upload box. This makes it easier for you (don't have to update all your links!), easier for me, and less clutter on the site. (picture)

    Rules
    The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, proper spawns, not fullbright, etc.
    __The purpose of this testing is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs.
    Filename MUST be versioned. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, NOT ctf_example.bsp)
    __Do not rename a bsp after compile. The vmf must be renamed before compile.
    Filename must be all lowercase. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, NOT CTF_Example_A1.bsp)
    __Our Linux servers don't work with uppercase names.
    Map must be IN DEVELOPMENT, finished maps do not require testing.
    Map may NOT use a point_servercommand to alter any variables.
    Map must be designed for normal play.
    __This means no melee, class restricted, too small for 24 players, or otherwise gimmicky maps.

    • You may NOT reserve a submission without a download.
    • Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission.

    • You may not resubmit a map (regardless of version) within the week or if it was ran last week. (if the thread you submitted in is still visible, it's too soon)
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.


    Information
    • Submission deadline is 4 PM CST, 1 day prior.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    __Contest CTF maps get 23 minutes.
    __Other maps may get 15 at my discretion.
    • Submissions will be limited to 3 hours of testing.

    So, er, if we get no maps for this, can I throw in cp_backflow_a4 despite it being tested last week?

    So yeah.

    My submission: cp_backflow_a5.

    The reason is probably because of the hammer outage for the last few days. Most people havent made any changes that they dont want in the friday testing...

    However, I might have a map if I can finish up the objectives...

    I guess we can't do this until the servers are fixed. :/

    I think it also has to do with people focusing on detailing their maps rather then game-play. Also most have finals in school around this time so it could also be that.

    This Gameday is cancelled, the SM is still broken on the servers.

    Now stop asking.

    well, I've uploaded it to the server, so you could have an inpromptu when the server is fixed.
