    Map Submission Format
    • Required: Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    • Required: TF2Maps.net file ID number, OR url to offsite download.
      .bz2 archive is preferred, but not required. May NOT be a hosting site like mega-upload (wait times, codes, excessive ads, etc).
    • Required: TF2Maps.net discussion thread number.
    • Optional: Available time & your time zone. Only necessary if you aren't available for the whole testing period and wish to attend your map.
    • Optional: Would you like the SourceTV demos of the test? (will be uploaded to here)

    Repeat submissions of a map:
    Only post the info that has changed.
    - 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.
    - Discussion thread never changes so only needs to be submitted once.


    Submission rules
    • The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, proper spawns, non-fullbright, etc. The purpose of gameday is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs.
    • Filename must be all lowercase. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, NOT CTF_Example_A1.bsp)
    • Submission deadline is 4 PM CDT, 1 day prior.
    • Submissions for will be on a first come, first served basis.
    • You may NOT reserve a submission without a download.
    • Please limit your submission changes. Updating your submission version is allowed if an important issue is discovered, but don't submit early if you will be updating every day with a new version.
    • When editing a submission for update/reservation, please make a new post to note that you have done so.
    • Standard maps receive 30 minutes playtime, arena maps receive 15. An extension may be requested for more mature non-arena maps in need of fine tuning.
    • Testing will be limited to ~3.5 hours each day.
    • The map author may request a team scramble after at least two complete rounds have been played.

    Multiple submissions per author
    • A specific map version may NOT be submitted to more than one day.
      The exception is mature maps in need of fine tuning. It is preferred you request for an extension rather than a double-booking, however, you may with the following rules:
      - Make ONLY ONE submission post, in the main day you want.
      - In that post specify the other day, and your map may be slotted in, at the admin's descretion, schedule permitting.
      - Double-bookings will not receive time extensions.
    • Different maps from the same author (ctf_example, ctf_eggsample) are permitted on the same day if there is space, but maps from other authors come first. If submitting more than one, please specify which should take priority, or simply submit on seperate days.
    • Different game modes of the same map (ctf_example, cp_example) are only permitted on different days.

    Available time & time zone: I can be there the whole time, but I'd like it to be at 1:00 PM Central Standard Time if nobody else needs that time.
    SourceTV: Yes!

    Note Beforehand-- This version of the map has been uploaded to the US server, and the bz2 file has been uploaded to the redirect, so that should save you some time :)

    If possible I would like to not be the last map on the list again, while I got great feedback and testing from people, I want to see how my map handles with full/nearly full server. Thanks

    I updated pl_problematique to a2. The scoring was screwy in the previous version.
