    Why
    I have a dedicated tf2 server that I have been using for my map. I am stopping working on my map so I want to share with the community.

    How it will work
    I am willing to have 1 map run 24/7 for up to 14 days at a time (depending on demand) so that people can try out your map without having to download it. For example, if 4 people want their map hosted, I will try to rotate every ~3 days.

    This will be a first come, first serve basis. I will host any version of map.

    Bonus
    As an added bonus, I will be providing HLSTATSX ( http://tf2.resolveme.com ). If I personally like your map, I will generate heatmaps for your map.

    Also, ingame commands like hlx and rank will work.

    Also, their is Roll the Dice on the server, for fun. I can disable upon request...(i guess :( )

    What I Want
    A link to the map. Recognition.


    Good luck everyone!

    If you want to host Vector, why not host all of the new AD CTF maps?

    You could maybe cut it down to less days a map, and do Vector Haarp Premuda Snowdrift and Panamint (in no particular order).

    Yeah. Why not have a week or two of havign that server just be contest maps? Haarp, Vector, Panamint, Bayou, Snowdrift, Premuda for a week (30 or so minutes a map?) and then the following week, have the plr contest entries: Scoville, Nightfall, and...the others (I forget >.>)

    I was thinking of hosting a specific night of just the contest maps for each gamemode on my UK based server sometime in October, probably on a Thursday night, UK time from 8pm, with a follow up event the next week.

    Arctic and Panic are the two other main entries though I know there are a few lower-profile ones.

    Ok guys. I setup a 30 minute per map rotation of:
    • koth_photofinish_b5
    • arena_blackwood_rc2
    • koth_courtyard_b4

    I plan on doing the contest maps for all of next week.

    Also the DL's for the map are crazy fast. I downloaded Blackwood in less than 30 seconds in game :), Photofinish was even faster!

    Stats will only work with 4+ players, and I can't figure out how to change that.

    thanks for hosting my map. It's only a bit of a shame the server isnt populated. I am the only one on the server right now, so I idling right now.

    I will join the server when there are some people on, but it's not worth joining to have a 1v1 or 2v2 when I get 200 ping.

    @zpqrei
    :facepalm: sorry. I fixed that

    @martijntje
    Yeah, my friends and I don't really play during the week. We might play some this weekend on each map and I will get some feedback from them.

    @J4CK8
    Yeah, this server is in Los Angeles, which is pretty far away from you :D

    This makes me want to make a map and get everyone to like it, then put it on your server.
