I've been trying to make a map in the map maker. I have shrines, spawnpoints, barracks and towers. I save the map. go into hon and set SatSave cg_dev 1 and try to open the map. the thing is that it doesn't open. it just hangs around 10%.
what can I do to fix this? I really want to make a custom map, but I would love to be able to try the map as well :) (this would also help my motivation)

There may be several problems:
1) File name can't contain space characters (' ')
2) worldconfig file in map must have set texeldensity="4" (should be by default for months)
If it won't help just upload map and post link/PM it to me (if it's secret) :P and I'll try to do my best

Seems that cg_dev 1 doesn't work :(
You have to set dev="false" in worldconfig file.
You can check server errors in console (CTRL + F8)
What is more use StartGame practice noname "map:Slurpee_map" to load it faster (imo). Type disconnect to leave server.

SV: Shutting down...
Shutting down server...

Net: [SERVER_GAME] Closing...
ResContext: deleted context 'server:curgame_world'

ah, I figoured out what you meant with editing worldconfig. I tried that, but I had to extract the file and edit it, then copy all the other files and make a new rar file, then I renamed it :P didnt work.
EDIT: fixed it! :D
thanks for your help.
