    Map Pack:
    USGameday15thOct.rar - Uploaded

    Rules for Map Submitters:
    The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, proper spawns, not fullbright, etc.
    __The purpose of this testing is to help authors refine their designs, not catch newbie bugs.
    Filename must be versioned. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, not ctf_example.bsp)
    __Do not rename a bsp after compile. The vmf must be renamed before compile.
    Filename must be all lowercase. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, not CTF_Example_A1.bsp)
    __Our Linux servers don't work with uppercase names.
    Map must be in development, finished maps do not require testing.
    Map may not use a point_servercommand to alter any variables.
    Map must be designed for standard play.

    __This means no melee, class restricted, too small for 24 players, or otherwise gimmicky maps.
    You may NOT reserve a submission without a download.
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.
    Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission.


    Submission Format:
    • Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    • TF2Maps.net file ID number, OR url to offsite download.
    __BZ2 compressed files are greatly appreciated to save time for the host.
    __May not be a hosting site like mega-upload (wait times, codes, excessive ads, etc).
    • TF2Maps.net discussion thread number.
    __The scheduling system uses this number, I need it, not the post number.
    If your submission is a single stage out of a multi-stage map, please mention this. (orphaned stage)
    If you are a donator with upload abilities, please say if you have already uploaded the map.

    Testing options:
    A time extension may be requested for mature non-arena maps in need of fine tuning (this includes orphaned stages).
    A specific time slot: Available time & your time zone.
    __Only use if you aren't available for the whole testing period and wish to attend your map.
    Would you like the SourceTV demo of the test?
    __These are automatically recorded at all times so there's no need to ask any more :thumbup:.

    Information
    • First come first serve, until the 2 hour period is filled.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    • Last map can exceed the limit so long as most of the testing happens within the 2 hour period (30 minute test starting at 7:40 is allowed, 30 minute test starting at 7:50 isn't)
    • 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. (picture)

    Time: Early on if you can.

    First two stages of a (later to be) 3 stage map. If I could get a half hour, I would appreciate it.

    No you dont. Pick one or i'l put it in the one that has the least amount of maps.
    Why would you think submitting to both would be ok?

    well it doesnt say you cant do that in the rules. then again, i dont remember 2 submission threads being active at the same time so i guess it wasnt a problem before. you'd better put that in the rules somehow :p

    I thought I edited that rule into your thread(s) a while ago harribo :/

    But its an un-written rule... aka the "Anti-Douche bag author who hogs up testing time"... rule

    Oops, Sorry :/

    I'll just remove my EU game one, I wasn't aware that posting in both of them wasn't allowed. :blushing:

    It didn't seem to occur to me that it may prevent other maps from getting their share of the testing. I'm sorta new to this, and at least now I know and won't do it again. :)

    That's not a problem

    1. Don't Backseat Moderate, if you think they're a problem with something in one of my Gamedays PM me or a member of the site staff

    2. As you can see if you look in previous Gamedays, Dropbox is happily allowed as it suffers from none of the problems mentioned in that rule.

    I'm be making the schedule for tonight in an hour or so

    I'm pretty sure the exact rule was 1 map version per week, even when we were running up to 3 events a week. I'm surprised it wasn't included in the OP if it was copy pasta from older events run by us mods.

    But yea, people if you want your map tested that much then start an impromptu movement in the chatroom. It only takes about 5-10 minutes to get 4-5 authors interested, especially with all the contests going.

    I brought this up in the game chat but I'll say it again: Someone needs to grab the demo and make a video of when the cart started acting up. That was crazy.

    Yeah that was pretty funny. I fixed it for the next version, but I'd love to see it up close when it did happen.

    Speaking of, do I need to ask for my demo in the stickied thread or do you post them in here?
