    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
    • 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.
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.


    Information
    • First come first serve, until the 3 hour period is filled.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    Last map can exceed the limit so long as most of the testing happens within the 3 hour period(30 minute test starting at 7:40 EST is allowed, 30 minute test starting at 7:50 EST isn't)[/color]

    21.30 GMT would be good, but I don't mind the time.
    SourceTV demo much appreciated

    One more thing, we may be updating tonight, will you upload it last to give us as much time as possible please? And how to make a bz2?

    I think this is full, but I'm still asleep so I don't know.

    Use 7zip: http://www.7-zip.org/ to make Bz2 format compressed files.

    I generally won't update map submissions because that qualifies as reserving a place in gameday for a map that isn't ready. Sometimes donators will upload the updated map themselves, i have no issue with this (so long as someone tells me before your map is up), or if you catch me really early and i'm not busy. But last minute changes are annoying, especially if they happen frequently/consistantly.

    I guess my map must have gotten put into the second half of the gameday (after the abort?) and it doesn't show up in the feedback list, even though feedback was given. Can anyone get me the demo of the playtest?

    Scorpio, we did play it, the pl map before it (or a few maps before?) was a bsp file, not bzp so nobody could dl it.

    You should be able to get demo from feedback page>events

    (i posted in your map thread)

    Sorry bout the hassle. I came home and saw the two notifications (one about restarting the mapday) and just assumed.
    I still don't see the demo download section, they were there before and now they aren't.
