    Map Pack for Today's Gameday: USGameday16thAugust.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)

    Being that Steam Community is having serious problems meaning we cant post an event so people join and the fact that the US server is having connection problems (the two may be related).

    Gameday is postponed until tomorrow, same time, same place is everything is working by then, If you cant make it or want your map at a different time as a result please post here and say so
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 3

    Oh crap. This sucks on IcyEyes. I was really looking forward to finally seeing my map in action. :(

    Tomorrow is fine with me. Third times the charm.... right? *crosses fingers* If you need any help testing it out before the event then make an announcement or something and I'll try to join. Also on another note I noticed the forums where down yesterday evening (showed the sapper error message) and I couldn’t even access the domain a few times the week before. What the heck is going on? :confused:

    Tomorrow I won't be able to make it. Go ahead and test; if I could get the Source TV demo afterward it would be much appreciated.

    I was away from Tuesday to Tuesday last week, I did ask a member of staff to put up a Gameday thread for me so I could host one the day I got back but it doesn't seem like that happened, the next one I'l be hosting is this Tuesday coming

    Sorry if this is the wrong place for this question, but im working on my first map right now, it is inspired by cp_orange, i have lightning, and its nearly done. (if i can find a apropriate texture for a castle)
    can i post it for a gameday?

    As long as all the entities work like spawn times and capture zones etc and the lighting isn't full bright it should be fine, people are going to bitch really bad about a cp_orange inspired map, it's a pretty badly designed map.

    That's good, the last 2 weeks felt like months without a gameday.
