First official version, fast-paced map for 2v2-3v3. 1v1 also possible à la Comet Catcher.
Have fun!


Keep the version number in

Keep the version number in file name, its the only way to make sure it works on all games and all lobbies and autohosts. Great map, congrats!

Behe, you silly sod. I'm

Behe, you silly sod.

I'm talking about the springfiles upload panel. The name you just have the name, you put the version in a separate field. That has nothing to do with the filename ffs.


To answer both questions: I made those decisions because I know that in the future, it'll be easier to find specific maps by adding as much (and thus separate) information as possible.
Editing the same entry in springfiles to update a map to a completely new version will make it impossible to find older maps by searching for their names.
Also, without the version number in the title, some functions that bots use (i.e. the "!maplink" command) won't work correctly :)

Sorry for the inconvenience, and if anyone thinks that it could be done better without making springfiles ugly, please do tell me the correct way, as the suggested ways are not working as expected.

Also, don't put the version

Also, don't put the version number in the title. There is already a separate field for that.

Why don't you use the edit

Why don't you use the edit tab on your maps instead of creating a new entry for every single one? It's not that hard. Just go into your files, under your uploads, edit one of your icy entries, delete the file that is there, set the versions correctly, and win.
