    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)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    I'd prefer first, but it looks like it's been claimed. It looks like the event is late in the day for me, and I'll only be available until 4:40 Central Time. Since I probably won't be there for my map, I'd like a demo please :)

    File Name = cp_war_factory_v0_30.bsp

    File ID = 4370

    Thread Number = 16476

    anytime would work as long as I can get a test

    files were check for any problems and none exist at this point in time

    (I'd like to be able to do a test with at least more than 5 people for once)

    Did I post late again?

    The link to my thread is wrong, it should be 16533 and not 16553.

    Any reason we've only got 4 maps in the lineup? Call me out on being newish to gamedays if I'm wrong, but that seems a bit on the smallish side even if it does go over the time limit a bit. Maybe I'm thinking of some of Grazr's gamedays.

    Either way, I'd appreciate it if my map was uploaded in case of an impromptu.

    I think it's only supposed to last for 2 hours. But this is the first one I'll be playing so I don't really know.

    Same here. I'd like Space Station tested sometime. I need layout feedback before I start major detailing. I'd love it if it was on the server for impromptus.
