OCR TF2: Stab stab stab!

Recommended Posts

Scout hats suck in general. The best, in my opinion, are Bombing Run (which still doesn't look great) and that beanie.

tosslecap and bakerboy ftw.

I never really liked Baker Boy.

Oh right, unboxed two more Festive crates today and got two more hats... Pyromancer's Mask (Pyro) and Larrakin Robin (Sniper).

I, too, got a weird looking scout trillby from my festive crate. Kind of a white on gray checkerboard pattern (though it's so light of a gray you can barely tell).

Pacman is only set for 20 minutes or so, so it goes by quickly - one option could be to reduce the time even further to 15 minutes so it'd be effectively 10-15 minutes for the most part.

It's already set to 15 minutes, and the round ends if less than 5 minutes are on the clock when a round ends.

On another topic, people need to stop bugging me trying to get me to trade hats. Just because I unbox new ones doesn't mean I'm going to trade them. >:/

Oh, guess its been a while since we've actually voted to go to pacman heh.

Also more custom maps! I've requested cp_warpath, and I'm sure there are a bunch of others that'd be nice to add.

Last time I checked warpath, it had issues with the amount of time each point takes to capture.

I've made a large number of changes to the map nomination list. I'm sure some of these changes will piss a few people off, but...

Removed:

cp_temple

cp_lwobtsud

cp_tiplevarg

pl_retawdab

Added:

cp_glacier_rc6

cp_gullywash_imp3

cp_obscure_final

cp_takeback_mountain

ctf_haarp_test6 (against my better judgement)

koth_waste

pl_swiftwater_frc14 (that's Final Release Candidate 14)

I also removed a lot of the outdated maps from the map mirror.

Why do some map makers insist on hard to parse file control abbreviations? a#, b#, rc#/v#/final seems more than sufficient.

I was unaware there were issues with Haarp...what's giving you pause?

I don't like the push CTF game type. I think I've noted before that Valve intentionally left it out of TF2, eventually coming up with payload as a replacement for it.

There's also the issue where it wasn't clear if b2 or test6 was the newer version.

TF2 is having a new item backend system pushed in a few minutes. Item system is expected to be down for no more than 10 minutes.

Hopefully, there are no issues that would cause problems that would extend that.

Also, a reminder: You have until tomorrow sometime to open any Festive crates you have before they disappear. If you don't want to open them, I suggest you trade them today.

Personally, my crate open rate was pretty good... 6 misc/hats out of 9 Festive crates I've opened.

Thank you very much. I really want to see how takeback plays. If Haarp is a bad map we could always replace it with koth_rainbow, voted best map by the blind community.

I don't know about anyone else, but I was decidedly unimpressed by Takeback Mountain. It seems far too large for 24 people, and there were a bunch of side routes that never wound up getting used by anyone. As far as custom maps go, though, I woudln't mind seeing Cashworks on the list if it isn't there already. I had some fun on that one in another server.

Cashworks isn't because it tends to have bad framerates on lower spec computers.

We know this because we used to have rc2 on our server, and rc2 is still the most recent (and possibly last) release.

Yeah, Cashworks was pretty fun for a while on the server, just the framerate issue bogged down computers (and probably even moreso now with all of these extra TF2 updates slowing down performance of the game).

I'd have gone with b2 personally, since test6 probably isn't intended to be a stable release.

Maybe the author should take a page out of Icarus's book and make a vanilla A/D version out of it...

Thank you Valve, for not including LOD models for the new items. </sarcasm>

I've got two festive crates but no keys for them. If someone has keys to trade, or wants to trade me for the crates, let me know here or on the IRC channel. Normally I wouldn't bother "advertising" like this, but since they apparently go poof tonight, I figured I might as well. No sense letting them go to waste.

What do you want for the crates? I've got some extra items looking for a new home, such as... Fists of Steel, Warrior's Spirit, Ullapool Caber, The Claidheamh Mor, and The Back Scratcher.

I just realized those are all melee items, but then again, those are the new item drops I've been getting.

Oh right, I also have two dueling games.
