    Hello everyone, and happy New Year! Here's a recap of everything TF2Maps this past month.

    [​IMG]

    News
    In minor site and server news...
    • Nightwatch has begun hosting gamedays! Everyone, please take a moment to thank him when you see him in chat or as you submit your map to his gamedays--this is a valuable, time intensive service and we are lucky to have him doing it.
    • For those that didn't catch it, the MVM server now supports the Feedback plugin, map uploading, and VIP donations!

    Assets Highlight

    No maps highlighted this time--nothing has been added to the showcase in December. However, there are plenty of MVM maps springing up -- hang out in the Steam Chat to catch a test of one!

    Tutorials, Resources, and Guides

    That's all this month! Seems many users were busy with the holidays, but are quickly catching up on MVM maps and more. As always, thanks for reading, tell us what we missed, and see you next month!
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 14

    I did totally forget about Big Rock, even though there's a discussion thread linked about it.

    It was late and I wanted to get it posted!

    Is there any particular reason that impromptu MvM tests don't get Steam announcements like regular ones do?

    Generally an mvm impromptu only gets started if there are 6 people, and if there are 6 people then there's no point in an announcement.

    Mostly just it seems dumb to me to send an event to thousands that 1-3 people can take advantage of.
