    do you need to prove you've;
    1) done the map in 72 hours
    2) everything has started from scratch
    and if yes. how do I prove it?

    It's a show of good faith.

    Or you can stream it like a lot of others do, it's fun to see everyone's progress.

    Would it be possible for me to start/end at 9PM GMT/4PM EST on the regular days? Doing so would give me time to set up my stream before I start on Friday, as well as let me work after class on Monday.

    Green is the existing time and date, Red is where I'd like to move it if I can.

    @LeSwordfish Looking at my work schedule, would I be able to start at 12:00 (noon) on the Friday and finish at the same time on Monday?
    I plan on streaming so if you want to watch and check my start time, you can do.

    Quick question: If i'm making a map, am I allowed to draw concept art for certain points / spawns before the contest starts?

    EDIT: Also, where can I get my map publicly tested during the contest? Can I upload it to the TF2 Maps severs (specifically, the Australian one?)

    I have a question, what If I release a map that is very blocky and slightly unfinished?
    I also have another question : Can it be artpass?
    EDIT : The time I will be available will be from friday until monday, which I have to go to highschool.

    Yes, feel free to draw concept art and plan as much as you need beforehand - all we ask is that you don't start working on your actual submission until the event starts. We'll be running regular tests on the servers throughout the weekend, but depending on the number of maps in the queue we might not be able to accommodate specific server requests. More info on submitting maps for testing will come soon.

    Maps don't have to be finished! Just get as much done as you can. Artpassing is fine too, as long as it's not on an existing project.
