    "It was the best of times. It was the best of times."


    So opens Charles Dickens' feel-good surf classic Super Good Times, and Dickens' words are as true today as they were at the beach cabana where he wrote them: The best of times, you guys. Let's have some.


    Presenting a first-day tease of our imminently-releasing Two Cities Update, including new maps, new achievements, and new effects-generating loot.

    Looks like new assets from the (apparently?) two new MVM maps incoming. Maybe we'll actually have nice time-and-place-appropriate city props now instead of that weird chinese stuff that kong king has. Also +1 for snakewater, congrats chojje on finally getting that in the game. Great map.

    Boston would probably be a good bet for another city. I hope it is cause then more fish-related scout antics

    You know, you've always been welcome to request some from the people here who know how to make them if you were interested.

    But yeah, it'll be nice to get some that we don't have to pack in. All I see so far is signage, but as Kong King demonstrated, that's pretty much all we still need.

    EDIT: Oh hey, I also see a second red skin for the shipping crate. So that's cool I guess.

    MORE CITY ASSETS

    (◕‿◕✿)

    Oh, and some shiny weapon stuff, not as cool as more city assets though.

    Out of everything, I'm most excited that Valve finally made a city map, and I'm really excited to see what new assets might come from it. Second most exciting was Snakewater being made official. It's always great when the community gets its stuff in-game, and it gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, Valve might care about the map I'm currently making ;) . The short was really entertaining, too, and the Rottenburg assets look super helpful for anyone making Medieval Mode maps (which I'm sorry to say I do not enjoy personally).

    Also, the container's skins have been updated : before that, you couldn't pose them on something else (and you really couldn't make a pile of them). Now they have a texture on their bottom too :D

    What containers do you mean? You can't mean the shipping containers; those have been seen piled up at imperfect angles since Granary.
