    TF2Maps.net Official US Server: 174.34.133.104:27500
    Gameday Host: Okrag


    Event will begin at:
    Central European: 11:00 PM
    UK: 10:00 PM
    Eastern: 5:00 PM
    Central: 4:00 PM
    Mountain: 3:00 PM
    Pacific: 2:00 PM
    Click for other zones.

    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.
    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
    • Submission deadline is 9 PM CST, 1 day prior.
    • Maps will get 30 minutes playtime, KotH gets 20, Arena and orphaned stages get 15.
    • Submissions will be limited to 2 hours of testing.
    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 EST is allowed, 30 minute test starting at 7:50 EST isn't)

    Map: plr_manufactory_a06a
    Thead: 16045
    Download: bz2
    Time: first, if possible

    Wilson wants first, and it's a short test, so if possible right after him.

    EDIT: new minor release, would be great if we could play this one.

    Technically it's an orphaned stage, as it has 4 out of the total 6 capture points. But in practice you'd be mad to class this the same as a single stage of a 3 stage map. Full 30 mins please.
    Map is already uploaded.

    Changed a couple small things with Manufactory after testing today, new version is here. Also updated the links in my first post. If we could run this version (a06a) instead, that would be fantastic. Thanks!

    I tried to keep the Gameday going today as Okrag wasn't around, apparently he's been ill? (Get well soon)

    Zhan's plr_manufactory_a06a, W.S Wankhouse's arena_pitchfork_a2, YM's tc_strata_mid_a7 and LeSwordfish's pl_levee_a3 (alpha4 wasn't on the server) were all played before the server emptied. I don't know if any of the other admins/server staff want to re-do the event later or tomorrow or friday as friday's thread hasn't been put up yet.

    I wouldn't mind running this fridays event if there is no one to cover but i'd like permission from one of admins to do so.
