    Map Pack for Today's Gameday: USGameday13thSept.rar - Uploaded

    Map Submission Format
    Required: Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    Required: 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).
    First time submissions, Required: TF2Maps.net discussion thread number.
    __My scheduling system uses this number, I need it, not the post number. (picture)
    If you need 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:.
    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).

    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)

    Rules
    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 normal 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.
    • Non-compliance with rules will result in rejection of the submission.
    • If an author has more than one map they want tested, they must be submitted to separate days.


    Information
    • First come first serve, until the 3 hour period is filled.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    • Submissions will be limited to 3 hours of testing.
    Last map can exceed the limit so long as most of the testing happens within the 3 hour period(30 minute test starting at 7:40 EST is allowed, 30 minute test starting at 7:50 EST isn't)

    I'm going to be cutting down my gamedays to 2 hours after this one and trying to run a second semi-regular or bi-weekly EU gameday for the weekends, I just cant host gamedays at EU friendly times on weekdays and don't want to regularly have gameday getting in the way of my weekend plans.

    Sorry you can't make it on Tuesdays but do appreciate that hosting these is a voluntary thing I do to try and help out the rest of the forum.

    You can allways throw the map up for a test and watch the STV afterwards or go into our TF2Maps group Steam chat and try and get a couple other map authors together and get an impromptu test going

    I understand you have personal life as all of us. I didn't want to sound like complaining, I just was little disapointed. Thank you for your advices and I'll try to get into impromptu or throw the map up for a test.

    There are also other communities where you can test. One that I HIGHLY recommend is Playstuff.net. Toss your map up onto their and they will test your map. It won't be as often as we would do it, BUT its another set of eyes to look at your map. The more places you post your map the better. (just remember, some places don't like indev maps, so you'll need to watch out for that.)

    Harribo is doing a great job with these events, and I appreciate this from him.

    Thank you for pointing towards another community where I can test my maps :thumbup: . Quick check and it seems some of tf2maps members are there too.

    Also looks like the Fast Download server isn't working at the moment so i'd advise anyone who wants to play tonight to download the map pack and put the .bsp s into your tf/maps folder
