Post subject:  whats missing?

This is the 3rd time I've built a custom map from scratch in AAPG:AE and when I upload it to the server it doesn't appear in the map list. At first I thought it was something server side but all the other AA2 maps work fine and custom maps built in the simple editor show up. So my final conclusion is that it must be something the map is missing which doesn't let the server see it.
Ive been over it many times and I can't see what the cause could be. The spawns are in and working, the objectives all linked up etc and everything is the world info section is in order.
Could one of you guys please tell me what's causing this problem and how to fix it? I've spent many hours on these projects and fought many times with the editor (reinstalled game twice and had to restart pc every time I closed and opened the editor again) just to get this map to where it is.

Hey buddy , I tried the map on the Beer_Me server this morning and it does appear in the admin panel but it will not load.
I did notice that the map file seems to be named wrong ie: if you look at the file it has an extention that reads tah.umap
I believe this should be th.umap if it is in fact a take and hold game mode.
I'm not sure how to fix that but possibly you placed an a in there somehow to create the tah.umap
I am fairly sure it should read th.umap
Try re-publishing it and carefully check the map name in the world properties within the editor.
And of course check with DeltaThunder or Wolverine, those guys are a fountain of knowledge and always willing to help.
Good luck

As far as I can see caps don't change anything. I made a test map using the simple editor with caps and it works fine.

Only thing I notice is that your missionname use the underscore in the name.
Camp_Delta while I see it without the underscore elsewhere. Don't think it will be
the solution, but might help.

Again , is the game mode Take and Hold?
Look at the file name it says , Camp_Delta$xxxxxxx$tah.umap

there is no game mode that I'm aware of that uses tah.umap

I believe this should be th.umap
