    Map Pack for Today's Gameday: USGameday5thSept.rar -Not 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)

    STV: If I need it I'll pull it myself, but sure.
    I won't be there for the test, so anytime is good.

    ****its an orphaned stage, so only 15 minutes is needed. But I will need feedback.

    Won't guarentee a new version after this test due to tests coming up. But I do miss development of these things...

    Is it possible for someone to fetch the SourceTV for this gameday? I couldn't attend my map (I asked for before 3 Pacific and I got 3:30 :/); so if someboody could link me to it, that would be most appreciated.

    Hmm, what could possibly be the explanation for the huuuge number of players at the beginning (my mates couldN#t even join) compared to the huge loss of players after the first 3, 4 maps? :O

    Sorry LeSwordfish we didn't get to play your map there was a problem with the server not being able to find it even though it was on the server and the redirect. I'l include in next week's test if you want just PM me before Monday

    and to English Mobster and Grossfuerst G you could at least give me 24 hours to put up your demos up before you start asking the staff to go fetch them for you, I find it pretty fucking rude

    Here's the link to them all: http://minus.com/m4hGdiKFG#1g

    Any problems PM me

    I won't speak for Mobster, but I myself are somewhat new to this forum and never saw a playtest ever before. Where shall I know from, that you consider it "fucking rude" to use the sticky thread after leaving the server? I even thought I was supposed to do that, because what's the point of this thread anyway if one shouldn't? You have experience with this forum, yes. But I do not.

    Anyway, thanks for putting them up, mate!

    I didn't mean for it to come off as rude; I figured they were automatically uploaded to the website following a game, and it was just matter of finding the links.
