Yo sneaK, I'm creating a surf map over this winter break between semesters. What does it take to get a surf map on your server? No hard feelings if you pass on it, I'm just curious

Generally surf maps are held to a higher standard because they are harder to make than other gamemodes *cough bhop* so I would recommend that you spend a lot of time ensuring that it plays well and looks nice. I don't have much experience making surf maps but my best suggestion would be to look at some of the more recently added surf maps for an idea of what quality of maps get added. Also posting your map to the steam workshop and gamebanana is a good way to get feedback and gauge the popularity of your map.

Having experienced members of the community to help you playtest is big as well! People can provide invaluable feedback and help make you map that much better :)

Land Land Kuiq Kuiq Frumpy Frumpy sounds good lads, I'm still working on it, and it probably won't be in a playable state for another week or 2 or 3 lol, but I'm working on it. It's going to be a staged level, not linear. I'd be happy for any tips or help when that time comes, I'm no expert on making maps. But I want to make it a good one

Don't forget to add the anti-grav bonus. It's a very essential part of any good surf map. :KappaRoss:

Feel free to DM me on discord (you can find me in sneaks)
I've got a fair bit of experience so I will be able to heavily test your map(s) and give as much feedback as I can.
I also have some mapping experience and might be able to give feedback there as well.

I wish you luck in your mapping journey :)

aight everyone so im making progress on my map. I have 3 stages completed, but they are not set in stone and probably could use tweaks after some playtesting and feedback. I'm shooting for maybe 7-8 stages, plus a bonus. All the textures are heinous right now because I have a cool theme in mind, but I want to get the guts of the map running first before I make it look dope. Who is ready to test out what I have so far, and what is the easiest way for people to playtest?
