    Don't help me test on the Map Lab!

    Thread title subject to change.

    Thread intention: Community powered map testing - outside of our usual Blueprint event and with no effort required by the admin team.

    If you have a map that you know is already loaded up on the Map Lab and would like to get some friendly Playstuff peeps to come and join you for a game, post here, with as much notice as possible.

    Rules:
    Don't expect anyone to turn up. These things are next to impossible to organise well
    Do make them welcome if they chose to.
    Do encourage them to feedback.
    Do stick around if another members map is being tested afterwards - to return the favour.
    Do remember we expect everyone to show each other friendly respect at Playstuff.

    We should aim to hone in on maps that we think have whole community appeal and champion their development by play testing them - lots. We should move them to the Teamplay server as soon as Gameplay is great - probably by beta latest.
    It's not as though the mappers aren't more than happy to build based on feedback - so we're privileged to have them and their maps hanging out here and on the servers. Time to show them a little more community love I reckon.

    Re: Please ignore me, I'm on the Map Lab and don't want any friends helping!

    I'll start with short notice.

    I'd like to get a mini session going tonight - to test Cruff, Corrode and CanyonFodder. latest versions. Kick off at 7pm. On the map lab. I'll be there to switch maps.

    Feel free to not joinings.

    Re: Don't help me test on the Map Lab!

    In an effort to make things easier I've done a bit of housework on the maplab:

    • Disabled the NoUnlocksNoCrits plugin entirely.
    • Removed the NoUnlocksNoCrits plugin from the admin exec config menus.
    • Rejigged Mac's config writer so it no longer includes the NoUnlocksNoCrits config and I've added a "Standard Maplab" config to it.
    • Added a mapcycle_maplab.txt file that contains whatever you want to test in a standard maplab community maps rotation. Currently it's canyonfodder, cruff and corrode. This mapcycle is always referenced when you write the "Standard Maplab" config using Mac's plugin.
    • Moved a couple of hundred maps from the map folder into subfolders to clean up the map selection menu a touch. More could probably be removed but that's for another day.


    Should generally make impromptu tests easier.

    Also the MYSQL errors that were being thrown out by the server earlier were becuse of the plugin database hosting moving. Geit, the plugin author, furnished me with an updated version earlier and it should all be working fine again.

    aaaaaaand relax...

    Re: Don't help me test on the Map Lab!

    If you guys are having trouble filling the server with impromptu's i can see to throwing out some announcements in the TF2maps group. We can usually fill our servers fairly well, our members are fair game (and used to frequent announcements) to impromptu's provided the admin leaves an I.P. in the event details and i'm sure DrP wouldn't mind such collaboration since we're sharing the TF2maps database already for the feedback plugin.

    Re: Don't help me test on the Map Lab!

    Maybe it would be a idea for every mapper/ps subscriber to be able to make announcements in the playstuff group? So we can pop up a announcement to everyone saying: Get on, nao!

    Incidentally, if you are mapper and Don't have admin on the Map Lab, shout - you should. It's a resource for mappers This will enable you to set your map if you want to organise your own impromptu.

    Just realised I forgot to change the sourcemod adverts on the teamplay server. It now says: "Bored of stock maps? Come play on our community customs server: 84.45.84.166:27015"

    I actually wouldn't have a clue if i had admin, since i have no idea how the admin commands work (are they console based?)

    Re: Don't help me test on the Map Lab!

    vBulletin admin panel says ezekel's already in the Server Assistants usergroup, so he should be able to see it already. Ezekel, can you see the TF2 Server Assistants subforum? It should be in the Team Fortress 2 category.

    Re: Don't help me test on the Map Lab!

    Wrong admin list Bob, check the server usage compendium in the admin section, under "how do I add new admins?". He needed to be added to the central MYSQL admin database, which I've since done.

    EDIT: Completely managed to misread Mac's post. hurr durr
