    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]

    I think it's safe to assume that everyone always wants an STV demo; might as well remove that question from the OP, like Okrag did.
    Second or third, preferably.

    My map's been updated to alpha 2B, so if you could use this version instead that would be awesome. I've updated my original post as well.

    I'm gonna leave the question in the rules there so that people know it's available. It's already removed from the table so it's not like it's making the event format incoherent.

    On a side note, please will people research their map names before deciding on it and submitting their maps. some map names are obvious and typical and different map files with the same name cause connection issues with servers and clients. IE people cannot connect to the server and play your map if that file name is taken already by another bsp.

    cp_gulch, i'm looking at you.

    That's only this forum and you'll never be able to predict who has a .bsp with that name. I know for a fact that name is taken. That's why Fishbus, author of cp_steel, named his successing project cp_goldrock_gulch.

    I'm gonna have to ask he change his maps name, recompile with the new name so that the cubemaps work (cubemap vtf's reference the map's name and their directory listing is broken if the .bsp is simply renamed). I may consider reserving a place for him in a following gameday if he is unable to manage a slot in one of the other gamedays after doing this.

    I know it's a bitch but, there's no point in having protocal's if you don't follow them.

    By the way guys, TF2Stats is the best place to search for a map name.
