    Map Submission Format
    Required: Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    Required: file ID number, OR url to offsite download.
    __May NOT be a hosting site like mega-upload (wait times, codes, excessive ads, etc).
    First time submissions, Required: 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 you do not want/need the demo please don't request it, I have to get these uploaded by hand.
    __If it turns out you missed the test and want it afterwards I can be contacted directly to get it.
    __Demos will be available here within a day (two if I'm busy).
    If your submission is a single stage out of a multi-stage map, please mention this. (orphaned stage)

    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 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)

    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.
    • If you wish, you may withdraw a submission and another map will be put in your place.
    • 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 may be submitted to separate days.

    • 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 3~3.5 hours of testing.

    Also, I live in the States, so I have no idea if I'll be able to actually attend. If that's not okay then go ahead and reject this.
