    Just figured out how to post maps to TF2Maps.net.
    This is my first tf2 map, so when I figure out how to post screenshots please have mercy.
    Wish me luck, im almost done with this project.

    Just use the onsite downloads area rather than mediafire, please.

    While you're at it, use these commands to hide your HUD and your viewmodel so your pics are just of the map and not your on screen display and weapon:

    You'll need sv_cheats on to use noclip and to hide your HUD. The JPEG quality command will just max out the quality of the compressed JPEG, not a big deal but why not. Noclip will allow you to fly around the map with collision disabled so you can get in the best spots to take pictures.

    EDIT: this is the in-game console.

    Or just use the JPEG mirrors that were already created by the Steam Screenshots system when you took a regular screenshot. They should be in Steam\userdata\[some big number]\760\remote\440\screenshots. (760 is the app ID for Steam Screenshots itself; go figure)

    What's wrong with using the massive upload server we created specifically so people wouldn't have to resort to hosting off-site.

    I mean, hell, we're already hosting probably 100 times as many maps as the entire Steam Workshop; one more isn't going to break the bank.

    Well for starters I had no idea it existed for people that weren't VIP. The forums doesn't do a very good job of directing you to upload files unless you're familiar with it.

    I'll start using it now, but this isn't as obvious as you're making it seem.

    No, it's not obvious at all, and in fact this is half the reason I started a thread calling for a new-user orientation section on the site, but you made it sound like you were advocating continuing to use Mediafire on purpose.
