    Event Rules and Information (link)

    If there's something specific you want feedback on in your map, write so a line below the rest of your submission, and I'll try to announce it just before the round starts. (Eg: Do the respawn times feel fair?)

    Sorry it's a day or so late, was busy again with school. I'm done school now, yay. It'll probably fill up anyway.

    Just a heads up, you'll have to re-save a copy of the map without capital letters (as outlined in this here rules page in the main post) and without periods in between the letters. The linux server will see capital letters as an entirely different character from its lowercase counterpart - which results in everyone getting a missing map error, and the period will just mess up the filename in general. I'm not 100% sure the latter will happen, but it has in other games so I just don't want to risk it.

    I read in the event rules that the maps need to be in development, but what stage of development would the maps need to be in before being eligible for testing?

    As long as it is still in development, it doesn't matter. Alpha or beta. As long as the version you have is not final.

    So once you think the level is at a state where it can be sufficiently tested for what it could be, then it should be good. If it's a single stage of many (many that you haven't finished yet) then you would note that in your post, and the map would be identified as an orphaned stage. Otherwise it's regular time.

    Ok, the map pack is uploaded in the main post.

    Matti, we'll be able to do 'setnextmap' to your map at the last map of the gameday, so even though your map falls outside of the official timeslots of the gameday, you should still get some good rounds of tests just from the falloff of players from the actual thing (we've once had a gameday last 5 hours, so usually there's people willing to play).

    Heyman, same boat, if you get a map working (no capitals in filename, perhaps no periods either) then we can give your map the same treatment after the end of the gameday (assuming there's VIP members or staff on the server).
