    I'd like to start tomorrow (Thursday), since I'll be going away on holiday during the weekend - is that alright?

    Also, what are the specifications for models submitted as entries? Can they just be generic .obj files or do they have to be compatible with TF2 (I.E. all set up as an entity to just drop into Hammer)?

    EDIT: Also, will there be a gameday for hosting these maps?

    You can submit what you want. However, people will want to be able to actually view what you've made, so you should include a screenshot at minimum. In the past, we've gotten hundreds of entries, so it's unlikely that anyone will take the time to download your model if they don't even know what it looks like. Making the model ready to use in Hammer would also go a long way.

    As far as I know, testing will work the same as it usually does (via the Discord bot's map list). You can also leave a note with your map when you add it to the list, so indicate that your map is for the jam. I'll try to make everybody know that jam maps should get priority.

    The most reliable way to get your map tested is to play in a test and request to play your map. If the server is full before you can join, try to message someone in the test (preferably the host) and request that they play your map.

    The 3 days in which the event takes place isn't a suitable time for me personally, so could I work on it tomorrow, and then next Monday and Tuesday? Ill even time myself.

    I believe the sunglasses one is just for people who donated to the charity.

    Could I have my 72hr period stretch from Monday the 23rd at 10:00 AM (or whenever I haul my lazy ass out of bed) to the same time on Thursday?

    EDIT: Times above are in EDT. GMT would be 2:00 PM.

    Lil' question. Is this medal for 72hr participation or for charity donation?

    I found it on the trade.tf/items/updates website for those who are curious.

    That's fine, just keep us updated.

    Participant medals are being patched in at a later date. The Ray of Sunshine is for donors.

    Can we get a direct link for donations? The only one I've found for AbleGamers doesn't fit the OP description.

    EDIT: I know donations only start on the 27th (apparently) but a link would prevent a lot of confusion. I want to know if one exists yet.

    @Void I'm planning on doing a drawing, but I'll be EXTREMELY busy on the weekend of the Jam. Is it possible I could start today, Friday at 4:30 PST in California and finish on Sunday at 4:30 PST? Please and thank you :)
