    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]

    Karnage, what i'll be doing is paying close attention to what maps and what authors are submitted/ing and those that have been submitted in the previous gameday will not take priority over other authors despite the fact they were quick enough to reserve a slot, so hopefully others can get the slots they need without having to idle on the forums hourly.

    That doesn't garauntee a slot if your map wasn't played the previous week. If the gameday fills up with fresh maps then there's no priority. It's just to help more fresh maps get tested and prevent the regulars from taking liberties; obviously i can't satisfy everyone at once.

    EDIT: Also, i've had a number of queries so maybe i didn't explain myself very well the first time. This only applies to gamedays. If you've had impromptu's, regardless of how successful they were, you can still grab a gameday slot as impromptu's are of the effort from your own back.

    Well hope I can get to test it sometime soon. It really needs a gameplay test.

    Darn. Filled up within 2 hours, before I woke up this morning. Oh well, I don't need it tested immediately, but I'm waiting for a test before I continue work. I just would like feedback on the layout and theme so I have enough time to adjust and detail before the contest ends. I'll be patient.

    grazr, pl_yamashiro_a1c is an orphaned stage - 30 minutes might be a bit too much

    OK, updated OP to reflect this.

    FYI i am out of the house until late so i'm gonna be pushed to get back by 8PM GMT. Hopefully i'll be back by then but if you guys don't want to wait ~30 or so mins if i am late, everything's setup on the US and EU servers for a donator to setup the maps and another chat admin should be able to make the announcement.

    The plan is to be back so that this wont be necassery but i figured i'd give you guys a heads up just in case.
