UKCS CS:S Map Tester Application Thread

Postby MotsMan on Sun Mar 11, 2012 3:17 pm

Dear all,

The CS:S team is currently looking for a small group of CS:S Map Testers. These testers will assist me in the initial testing stages of new maps for UKCS & in the initial testing for future events.

I must make it clear this is not an admin/votekicker application thread. You will not receive any server/forum powers. Successfull applicants will however receive a forum title to distinguish them from other members.
Applicants ideally will be able to show that they have an interest in the process of locating new maps for the servers & have shown that they are dedicated to improving the quality of maps/events on UKCS. You will be expected to be available on Tuesday evenings as the majority of tests will be scheduled then. Please also be aware that tests could be scheduled any day of the week should it be deemed neccessary.
Successful applicants will also be expected to keep up a certain level of attendance & should a applicant miss a majority of tests, the privilege will be removed.

Please completely fill in the application template below. We will consider applicants as they apply.

1/ Game Name:
2/ Steam ID:
3/ Your reasons for wishing to become a map tester:
4/ Why you think you are a suitable applicant:

Any other comments you would like to make.

Might i ask would it not be easyer to upload the maps to ukcs#4
and do some server shouts for people to join ukcs#4 for test maps ?
this way you might get to see the maps with more people on them.

Mads normally holds map tests on wednesdays evenings on server 2, but we would like a select group of people do the first initial test behind close doors before we test the map on a server with alot more people just to make sure the map is big enough, holds enough fps and there is no map exploits

Mads, you know I test the maps when I am about. Happy to continue helping when about.

As for putting them on 4, (thanks for the idea!) we can't really do that as certain maps might fail pretty hard so we don't want to mess with the "live" servers. Also, when 4 is on, I am pretty sure people just wanna play crazy maps on it and most of the maps we test are normal ones with a view to putting them on 1 or 2

Cheers!

3/ Your reasons for wishing to become a map tester:

New maps are always interesting to try and what would be better than combining this interest with something useful to UKCS.

I'm interested to help improve UKCS map rotation and make some new acquaintances.

I know this is an old thread but I thought I would post and apply to help out.

1/ Game Name: Mя Яapidßyte

2/ Steam ID: TEAM_0:0:62627409

3/ Your reasons for wishing to become a map tester: I would enjoy helping out the community, finding new maps to use, testing said maps for bugs/glitches/exploits and making sure they would not be in the live UKCS version.

4/ Why you think you are a suitable applicant: I have done map testing in other games and such, so the skills should be transferable to CS:S, failing that, I am a quick study and can pick up the ways of testing CS:S maps.

I am also friendly and easy to get on with, which helps with any team/group activity.

Cheers,
MrRB

We have a map testing team who do testing on a private server to avoid interfering with regular players gaming.

Map testing is organised - its not like regular game play, we don't actually do a lot of killing we mainly look for faults in the map as well looking at fps and lag on all areas of the maps, and a lot of the time maps require fixes which are done by our wonderful map editors and then the maps are re-tested all over again.

The map tests you see on the main servers are to gauge player reaction and how the server goes with the higher number of players on the maps. Also map tests on the main servers allow players to give feedback on the new maps tested on the forum, in the hopes we have maps on rotation that the majority of the community are happy with.

3/ Your reasons for wishing to become a map tester: I love to find unique, balanced maps. Unique in gameplay and design, and balanced in close range and long range combat.
4/ Why you think you are a suitable applicant: I feel I have a keen eye for what makes a map balanced for both teams. I can spot technical glitches and offer positive feedback and technical support for those using hammer. I have lots of experience as a mapper, and can offer advice on layout design, whether it be small touches such as a new vent or moving a door to create slightly more difficulty for the camping player. I'm available tuesday evenings.
