So in the TF2 thread we were talking about all the weird old maps we've played over the years on community servers, now lost to the sands of time.
So I figured why not try and save as many as we can? Maybe set up a site to host all these for easy pickings by a would-be server host?
It doesn't matter if they're legit TF2 maps or trade server maps, I'm collecting them all the same.

You can have the entirety of my tf/download folder.

I'll probably delete this later if I need more space in my google drive.

Reposting mine from the TF2 megathread to keep these in one place

[quote mentionsUser="584" postId="648831" threadPage="29" threadId="19051" username="Robotnik"]Mega's 50gb storage is temporary and I defaulted to 15gb, but thankfully I found another temporary storage boost for it:

[url href="https://mega.nz/file/bThCHaqK#Q4RX89CzkY1t1Rz9PTf3pVtygjbxI5ThSYVUcLFy5O4"]Map Pack Download link (also includes the Slag server models, sounds, etc I mentioned previously, along with whatever else is in there)[/url]

[url href="https://my.namejeff.com/MHHifngC.txt"]Text file with all map.bsp names in the "maps" and "download/maps" folders sorted alphabetically[/url]

Includes epic maps like balloon_race_v1/2/3, several parkour fortress maps, three mariokart versions, and Walmart

@chipsnapper[/quote]

Make sure to add to the OP that the important folders are tf/maps and tf/download/maps. Mine had completely different maps in each one and it's important to save both of them. Dunno if there are other downloaded map folders.

I included tf_delfino_airstrip_b2-2.bsp in here, one of the earliest versions of this map that originally the creator Flyguy only gave to me to test on my server with him.

koth_traingrid is also a really fun map.

Aw man, shame my HDD died a while ago, along with all the TF2 content I had from 2009 up to 2014. One map that I think should absolutely be preserved is [b]trademon_plaza[/b]. It's been hosted on most major Russian trading communities, even locally supressing trade_plaza in popularity in 2011. I'll try to look it up tomorrow.

Ooh, a one of a kind map! I have a few of those in here. Another neat thing I’m including is ctf_2fort_3733, which is the version of 2fort used in the 2006 TF2 trailer. Only key difference in the map is that the bridge has individual planks instead of a solid brush, and I think it was from the Postal III leak.

Im also uploading my 800 map folder but it also has a lot of previous versions from maps from tf2maps as well,i did also had to reinstall tf2 2 times in my total time on steam so the oldest of the old maps i found may not be in there.

DM'd you on discord with my old FastDL collection. Don't want to post the link as I don't want my Dropbox to get nuked from people downloading it.

There's a bunch of gamemode maps in there I'm not seeing that I used to run in between my two clans (NLR/LRG and GrayMannGaming). I basically cloned the original Slag Gaming variety server in terms of modes and then added a ton of stuff on top of it, so I had a TON of random maps. We were the original Slender Fortress server, so I think there might be some beta Slender Fortress maps in the FastDL as well.

There's also some maps that are useless without sourcemod plugins that were never made public in there (anything prefixed with VW_ being an example).
I don't have permission to release the code (it'd be broken as fuck anyways. I stopped running the servers end of 2014 early 2015 I think?) and the person who wrote the gamemodes has dropped off the face of the earth (rip KitRifty), but the maps are here to be archived at least.

I've got a couple of maps I played on an old ff2 server that aren't yet on the list. If I didn't switch PC, I'd probably have a lot more of them since the server dated back to 2009, I think, but alas. Any way to PM them to you?

This may contain some maps I compiled purely for testing certain things (as I have Hammer set to put compiled maps into the download folder) but hopefully I deleted most of those, they weren't very interesting anyways.

This is awesome and I'll definitely be using it in the future, unfortunately my PC is broken so I don't think there will be any videos for awhile.

What's the earliest version of Orange on the list?

If possible upload them to GoogleDrive and set the share to "anyone with the link". I like MEGA more but I've hit the 15GB ceiling every day for the last few days.

I've got 40 unique versions of cp_orange and no handle on what's newer/older. I've actually heard that the map geometry started life as a Day of Defeat 1.0 map that eventually jumped to Source and later TF2.

I have a laptop with probably a ton of Mario Kart variations. Not sure if the HDD have any data rot since it haven't been turned on for ages.

I don't know if you take bad maps but here's a map I did back in 2011

I know it's pretty terrible but if you're collecting every single map no matter how obscure there's that one. It's mostly re-uploaded due to nostalgia. It's when a bunch of my friends and I would make weekly maps and play on them the following week and that's what kept our circle close for a while. Most of them never really saw the light of day though past that.

Anyways regardless good luck on collecting as many maps as possible. A lot of maps are lost to time and I'm glad there's someone out there looking to preserve them.

Edit - Forgot to mention there are 4 versions of this map I'll upload the others later on when I get time. I need to compile them but if you're saving them I'll go through the trouble.
