    24/7 Map Testing Facility | TF2Maps.net -[TECU]-

    Server is down till further notice!! Might be back this fall

    [​IMG]
    -[Info]-
    Maplist is updated on a daily basis from the top of the map database thread from 7 days a week.

    Maps are purged in 4 to 5 days unless there are updates.

    I will take map requests via PM through Steam.

    If you are a donator to TF2Maps, you are welcome to admin privileges, just PM me to get you started.
    I will be adding privileges soon.

    The server uses the Nominate and RTV plugins. Plus a sv_cheat protection system, for maps like tr_walkway and such.
    Timers for each gametype will be setup GameDay style with arena at 15mins, koth at 20, and all others at 30mins.

    I'm glad more hosters are testing maps that need it, rather than hosting some cool custom map they see or sticking with a normal stock rotation.

    This is great, I've added it to my favorites.
    Even when it's empty I might join and just jump around looking for bugs and bad clipping for whatever map is running.

    dustbowl is set as the default map, so on server reboots its shows up. I cant do nothing about it as the guy who runs my server is using a shitty server web utility. Hey, its what you get when you buy a cheap server, cant beat 24bucks for a 22slot server. He actually offered us 2 servers, but we were fine with the one, hell cant even fill this one, why would a need another, lulz.

    Yeah, we should get some events going on here. Also, there is much <3 for putting bayou on the server.

    I think this sort of thing is just great for those of us who want to show off our map to friends, but dont have any servers to put it on! Thanks Label!

    Events are in the works. I need some good feedback on a good day to host these events and not conflict with the official tf2maps scheduled events such as gameday. Ive got two events in mind, one for a general map testing get together, and another final maps day to play completed maps with friends. Another good event Id like to host is A/D CTF week and a PLR week after the contests are over to showcase everyones great work.

    I will be hosting a month long event for the PLR A/D CTF Contest starting on Oct 15. I will dedicate the server to those maps registered in the contest and will update daily the maps changes.

    Thursdays will soon have a new event to fill the void between gamedays. This event will be very different from gamedays however, more info soon. First event will take place the week after the PLR A/D CTF Showcase Event currently planned.

    Im back with a new fully dedicated Testing Server. Ill be providing Updates as before 24/7 7 days a week. I will also be adding TF2Maps staff and Donators to the admin list. I will also be checking with staff about how the staff (and possibly donators) could possibly add maps themselves through the TF2Maps site.

    Wow you added my map and I didn't realise until my friend just pointed out, lol, thanks!
    I'll add you on steam if I can, i've almost got canada_a6 out and it would be awesome if you could put that up there :)

    EDIT: A6 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1491682/koth_canada/koth_canada_a6.rar
    Thanks for putting my map up, nice to know people are willing to test maps without even being asked to by the maker :)
