"Hi again!
This hotfix is to fix and add minor things but mainly to fix the crashes.
People and their cosmetics are overpopulating the vertex/polygons of the server, so I've removed things so the map can run when there is a populated server.

Changelog

Outside
-Added crates near main point (to obscur snipers)
-Added another Skeleton King for the skeleton horde
-Changed the spawn spots of the skeletons
-Changed the reset time of the Necrosmasher from 1min to 30secs
-Fixed props
-Fixed buildings and props not centered
-Fixed textures
-Fixed exploit relating to rtd noclip in caves
-Moved the sniper block closer to the door
-Moved the pumpkin explodes around a bit
-Removed some exploding pumpkins

Boxing
-Added some parapits for admins when doing dodgeball (can be shooted out from but not into)
-Added more ammo and made players regen health for PyroDodgeball
-Added a wall in between dodgeball (stops shooting and can be toggled)
-Added exit in admin room
-Changed the winning particle effects locations
-Fixed engineers getting other team spies to teleport in their side
-Made the teleport go to boxing instead of private boxing
-Remade stairs for duckhunt (less trippy)

Other
-Fixed shaded door in Simon Says
-Fixed Engineers building in Simon Says
-Fixed rule signs being covered by sprays
-Optimized a little bit more
-Fixing crashes
-Changed entities into models (less strain for map)
-Increased Lightmap sizes
-Removed some entities and models
-Removed all candle (not torches) particle effects to stop with the crashing
-Removed rain in Simon Says
-Removed some lights from pumpkins

Hopefully I solved the problem and the crashing has stopped.
Please let me know if this doesn't fix it and I'll have to remove more for it to actually work.
Thank you and sorry about the crashes. I really like the work I've put into this and I dont want this to be another situation of the christmas update where it crashed many times. "

"Hi there everyone!
SO... Halloween... Late? Yes. I'm very late especially the TF2 Scream Fortress and I am very sorry. I've been busy with other things that I havn't had the time to work on the map.

So, without further ado, I present our very first Halloween verison of the Retro Trade Map!

Changelog

-Fixed sounds

-Added Exploding Pumpkins 
-Duplicated the Boss Spawns for Cap 
-Fixed Nav Mesh File (NPCS) 
-Fixed Wrap Assasin Projectiles 
-Fixed Monoculus Realm

Other 
-Re-decorated the Whole Map for Halloween event! 
-Cut down the file size by 50mb 
-Added different music for Disco 
-Fixed textures and models 
-Removed Kart Arena and Sniper Arena for more space

Sorry for this extremely late update but I wanted to get this out because I'm really proud of it and how it turned out. For now I will leave it just as it is so I can focus on my stuff that is bugging me, but if the map breaks like the christmas version did, THEN I will update it for a fix asap so please let me know if this happens.

Thank you all so much and enjoy the spoopy update :)"

Alright...here we go ;)

Steam Username
:TheGamerXym

Gender
: Male

SteamRep Link
:https://steamrep.com/search?q=TheGamerXym

Number of years on Steam
:Three

Position you are applying for [Mod/Admin] for [Servers/Forum]
:Moderator for Servers


Real First Name
:Quinn

Age
: 17

Please state all that apply to you, if any [Student High School, Student College, Full Time Job, Part Time Job]
:Student High School, Part Time Job(which might not be being kept)

Time Zone
:MST(Mountain Standard Time) -7:00

:Yes

Can you, or do you use 3rd party voice systems, such as Skype, Teamspeak, etc [Y/N]
:Yes

If you answered YES to the question above, what systems do you, or have you used?
:I currently have Skype, and have used Teamspeak and Mumble


Previous History

Previous staff history in any game, please state the game(if none, say none)
:Minecraft - Owned a server and have been moderator on at least 3 other moderately popular servers.
Garry's Mod - Temporarily owned and operated my own small server.

In your opinion, how will you help the community
: I spend most of my free time on my computer with nothing to do but play TF2 really. I've spent over 1500 hours and counting in the game and believe that I could better use my time helping keep servers safe and fun, than messing around and being helpless when I wish an Admin or Moderator of a server would do something simple to balance a game.


If you are applying for Server Staff please fill out these questions
(Do not just put the answer you assume you want us to hear, "no opinion, or suspend judgment" is a viable answer)

Briefly state your opinion on sites such backpack.tf , in regards to their voting system.
:no opinion

Briefly explain why the exchange rate for metal to keys has had the tendency to inflate.
:The exchange rate from metal to keys tends to inflate because the over-manufacturing of metal, and its over circulation. The more metal that exists overall, the lessened value of it, making it so that Keys (which supposedly stay at the same US dollar value of $2.49) equate to more metal.

Briefly explain your opinion on SteamRep.
:I think SteamRep is a good idea for checking a player's credibility, but I havent used the service much.

You are a moderator, and enter one of our servers. Two people say they have each been scammed by an individual, who they spycrabed with. The individual had already left the server, before you entered. They can provide no proof, other than the name and steam profile link. What do you do?
:I would ask for that name and Steam profile link. Using these tools, I'd use SteamRep to see if this account has any chronic record and, from there, investigate.

You are a moderator, and are in one of our servers. You see player A has traded 4 keys to player B, in exchange for a Strange Weapon valued at 5 refined. Player A learns the value, but Player B won't trade back the items. What do you do?
:I'd do what any sane person would: try to help player A get some kind of compensation. I'm not saying full face value - people need to learn how to use the tools available. But in the end theres really nothing substantial i could do other than banning player B. They could just leave and have no repercussions, after all I'm not from Valve and I can't really do anything about it.

You are a moderator, and are in one of our servers. An individual is being blatantly annoying to everyone in the game. The entire server complains, and asks you to ban him, yet he has broken no server rules. What do you do?
:I calmly ask the individual to stop, as it is ruining others gameplay experience. If the problem persisted I would call for backup - another Moderator or Admin to help deliberate - it's always better to have a second opinion.

You are a moderator, and are in one of our servers. A donator is on his last strike (meaning if he breaks another rule, his donator status will be taken away). He blatantly abuses his donator commands, when he nukes the enemy team spawn room, in front of you. He claims he just came back from the restroom, to find his younger brother was on his account. He says his younger brother is the one who had just abused the commands. He asks you to not take away his donator account, because he was not the one who did it. What do you do.
:I would take away his donator privileges. Rules are rules, and if they didnt want their brother on their account, then that's their problem. They can make an appeal on the forums, but my job would be to keep gameplay of everyone safe and fun. Rules are rules.



Thank you for your time reading and considering my application :) If you need to contact me, the best way would be over Steam.
Thanks,
--Quinn(TheGamerXym)
