OCR TF2: Stab stab stab!

Recommended Posts

...I just crafted some of the weapons in these new recipes like a couple of hours ago. Uuuuurgh.

Seriously, anyone else feel like we need a moratorium on new weapons? At least for a couple of months? I still don't have all of the Uber Update stuff yet, much less anything that's come out since then.

Hit me up. I can equip you in a way that pleases us both. I have many multiples of almost every weapon. That goes for the rest of you. Look through my backpack to see if there is something you need.

I have heard one of the strange items in the new Sniper crates is a Sydney Sleeper.

People, you know what I must do. I appreciate any help in this effort.

Stranger yet, one of the items is Strange Jarate.

I'm disappointed that there's no Strange Huntsman. I'm even more disappointed that Valve apparently didn't discontinue the previous 3 crates, so you now have a 1 in 6 chance of getting a Sniper crate rather than 1 in 3.

Also, Valve, please die for dropping a crate for me as soon as I connected yesterday.

You mean you're giving them away or trading for them? Cuz I'm f2p and can't "trade" but can accept people giving me stuff. :P

Yeah, I was expecting a Strange Huntsman. Hence why I'm... kinda glad I can get a Strange Sleeper. I have some keys and tags ready to go for Sniper crates. |D

I already have a strange regular Rifle.

It will be my new Ph.D in Bodyshoots.

I found the detonator to still be useful. An overlooked fact about it is that you can set multiple people on fire simultaneously, especially when they're all on a control point or cart. After that it's axtinguisher time. It's like jarate that you have multiple usages of and can actually aim and control.

More new weapons? They really just don't care anymore.

It also lets you jump onto Steel E from the rim before the bridges extend. And that's about the most useful jump I've been able to do with it. Kind of sad, really.

The Diamondback (new Spy gun) was really fun to use. The damage penalty is identical to the Ambassador, so the crits do 102 apiece. Because you don't need to aim for the head and either wait between shots or deal with an inherently slower fire rate, it ended up feeling stronger for me. I enjoyed it.

I LOVE the Machina. The sound it makes when fully charged, and the piercing effect.. lovely.

Oh yeah. That. Someone (Zephy?) was aiming for a Medic while fully charged but hit me while cloaked instead. And it pierced and got the Medic anyway.

btw, if you have an extra Villain's Veil, I suggest you sell it NOW before its value starts plummeting because it's in the series #27 crate.

I have an extra veil now. I'm just holding onto it to try and trade for a Strange Jarate. I have everything else I want at the moment.

I tweaked Launchpad some more. Linky. Stage 3 still isn't there and I'm getting increasingly annoyed with myself for it, but there's no reason I can't keep iterating what I do have. (You can noclip and get a sneak peek at point 3A if you want.)

Changelog from stage2b:

  • Changed layout near death pit in Stage 1
  • Added an extra rock on sloped ground in front of Point 1B
  • Removed back exit from RED spawn for Stage 1 (This is an experimental change and is not necessarily permanent)
  • Extended walking area above RED spawn for Stage 1 and added a staircase for easy access
  • Changed geometry in Stage 2 between points to address size issues
  • Slightly modified layout in the large building in Stage 2
  • Also textured the interior of said large building
  • Changed number, placement, and size of various health and ammo drops around point 2B
  • Added extra signage in various places throughout the map

It's on the server now, but the server needs to change maps once before it will show up in the nominate list.

Since it wasn't mentioned before, Thursdays update added a bunch of new effects for Unusual hats and made certain effects more pronounced (Confetti and Flies).

Oh, and I just unboxed an Unusual Dead Cone w/ Blizzardy Storm. :D

Now I just need to see if I can trade it for a Nuts and Bolts Engineer hat (preferably Hotrod).

The hat you want may not exist yet. Actually you may be able to get a lot for it since it's a new effect. You may want to post it up on TF2TP, SourceOP, and the SPUF forums to get a feel for some decent offers. I guessing you can get ~5 buds (50 keys) for it. You could also start asking the guys that know unusuals like Sun Spy and Pink Taco.

I started a thread of SPUF about trading it.

On another note, I figured out what was wrong that caused replays to throw "...download failed!" messages. This should now be fixed.

Spiffy, but Gamemaster and I had the same problem on a Valve server not too long ago. Curious...

Well, this should fix most of the problems with it, not necessarily all. Essentially, the webserver was serving the wrong directory out, so not surprisingly, you'd get "...download failed!" every time.
