It was unfortunately not edible! I didn't follow any sort of health code when I was making it and I didn't want to poison my classmates. It was for my digital media class. Also I used "structural gingerbread" which made it taste really bad but was really sturdy(it was 5 feet by 3 feet). It smelled amazing though, which made it tempting to eat.

That's OK, I had back to back meetings today and found out about this update right before leaving work... and was going out to dinner before work.

Luckily, the only thing that broke on any of my plugins was fixed in a SourceMod gamedata update (PropHunt's self-damage / fly).

Oh, so apparently some spookey-time super conspiracy time stuff has been added. I guess when you take a teleprompter, there is a rare chance of a bread spawning? http://i.imgur.com/C71Gasj.jpg

Also some item changes, but I'm not real sure what to make of these.Wvuj2Ki.png

EDIT: Another update got pushed when I was looking the other way.

New update info (NEW TAUNTS GHURRBL), and a

Damn that's a good one. Featuring Ashley Burch as Miss Pauling. I knew I recognized that voice, but I had to look it up.

The mystery of the bread is solved! It turns out it was nothing of apparent consequence! A shocking twist, indeed!

Seriously though, Valve's films are always a treat to watch. Don't miss it.

Ms Pauling for tenth class.

Also, obviously there's something of consequence: Updated localization files. I mean, duh.

Turns out that the explosion on pl_upward is triggered by any prop_physics entity falling into the pit, not just the cart. This includes the bread that pops out of teleporters nowadays. If this happens, the pit explodes and the cart vanishes. I think the HUD also shows the last point as being captured.

Man the defecation is going to hit the ventilation on this one.

I noticed something missing from this update notes. Mainly the part where it should say that the Reserve Shooter is getting a nerf when the Pyro uses it.

Anyway, back to pushing out new a PropHunt configuration. Now that PropHunt is on my watch, we're going to make sure that new weapons are nerfed as appropriate as soon as they come out.

Hey all - hoping to hop on TF2 sometime soon again, but my desktop is currently out of commission. Ran into issues setting up my new power supply after the old one seemed to have kicked the can, we'll see what happens tonight/tomorrow.

We've released a mandatory update for TF2. The notes for the update are below. The new version number is 2294473.

-----------------------------------------

- Reverted the recent stickybomb damage ramp up change. We will continue to evaluate the use of stickybomb air detonations and potential changes to that mechanic.

- Fixed being able to taunt with enemies between spawn room doors

- Fixed a problem with The Senguko Scorcher's materials

- Updated the Towering Pillar of Summer Shades so they are marketable

- Updated the attribute description for the Back Scatter to better explain what it does

- Updated the localization files

Someone else updated before I got to it.

So it looks like they reverted the stickybomb nerf. Who is surprise?

To be honest, me. I never really liked how the Demoman could excel on both offense and defense, and his ability to lob stickies and detonate them ASAP was a large part of his offensive game. I thought it made sense to nerf that aspect in order to reign him in a bit and encourage more thoughtful sticky placement, laid in advance as traps. It also doubled by making the Demoman more vulnerable in close quarters, which makes sense given that his counter is Scout. The one part of the nerf I disagreed with was how it applied to taking out Sentries as well.

The rest of this dives into speculation with a side of ranting since I have no 6s experience, so feel free to stop reading here.

From what I understand, Demoman was limited to a single player in 6s because of a combination of high damage and simple trap creation. With 2 Demomen, a team could lock down all possible chokepoints around a given area and that's no fun for anyone. Okay, makes sense.

Now that Demoman was nerfed so that his stickies do middling damage at best in direct combat, people started acting like the sky is falling, demanding Valve roll back the change (which they did...) and some proposed a mod to do so themselves. But since the Demoman in his previous state was such a powerhouse to the point that he was explicitly limited to 1 per team, shouldn't have that been a red flag that he was perhaps too powerful? Did anyone in the comp scene suggest perhaps raising the Demoman limit to 2? (Likely not since the trap issue remains.) Or perhaps accept the idea that a 6s team wouldn't have to be Medic/Demoman/Soldierx2/Scoutx2 once one of those classes was nerfed off his pedestal? Embrace change? Explore new options? Evolve the metagame? Anything?

IDK, I'm ranting at this point, but it honestly worried me to see very little constructive feedback about the nerf. (Admittedly I don't frequent the competitive forums much so feel free to point me to reasoned arguments if they exist.) And now that it's been rolled back, I assume purely in response to the outcry, I can't help but be slightly annoyed.

Also what about Heavy's nerf? That one I can easily see room for improvement but it's been left alone.

The pattern of players raging down any effort to balance any game feels like it's gotten more rampant recently, but it could just be awareness bias. You should see the responses to Guild Wars 2 patches (and the resulting 'fixes') sometime...

This change really did need to happen. Then again, I'm a pipe 'n' targe demo, so it doesn't exactly impact me, and I can still get crazy burst damage with direct pipe hits. In-air stickies just require relatively less aiming skill.

So I discovered what the cause of my computer problems was - a power surge wrecked havoc on my desktop. I have most of the parts replaced now (yay for essentially building a new computer), I just need to upgrade my video card and replace my hard drives & I should be good to TF2 again towards the end of the month!
