    TF2 is such a finely crafted game, and it shows in the little details... from the maps to the characters, weapons and sounds.

    It amazes me that after more than three years of playing TF2, I just noticed one of those details for the first time. Apparently the sentry gun beeps 1, 2 or 3 times depending on its corresponding level... can't believe I never noticed until now. :blushing:

    Has anyone else had a similar experience where you discovered one of these little details way later than you should have?

    I've taken a number of screenshots over the past few months of details in maps I've only just noticed or only just paid attention to. I'll try to hunt them down soon if I can be bothered (stupid Windows not being able to preview Targa files!), but for now here's one I caught just the other day:

    Even with the fairly obvious light patch on the floor, I only just noticed this hole in the ceiling in Egypt yesterday.

    I only just noticed the arrow on the teleporter blueprints indicating which way the players will face on the exit.

    I've recently noticed that i can hear the detonation beeps of enemy demomen sticky bombs. Though i think this was a recent change (by recent i mean within the past few months).

    Though so many things have been added (and others removed) there is so much stuff going on that it's not that interesting if something gets overlooked.

    Nothing is more satisfying than headshotting three people in a row in arena (one of them being a Pyro) with the Huntsman when you're the last man standing with 26hp.

    Junction, man. Theres an absolute beautiful shitton of stuff under the floor and in the out-of-bounds areas at B, as i discovered in spectate, avoiding playing the bloody thing.

    This has no collision. Just a playerclip. Same goes for the pile-o-gold displacement below. I learned this by accidentally pushing the beach ball into it.

    I learn new stuff every day from digging through the Wiki lately. But the only thing coming to me is that I forgot the Mapper's Medallion for Art Pass people was a thing until just a few minutes ago. What...what happened to that?

    The other day I noticed how hilarious ragdoll physics become when you set tf_playergibs to 0, especially when there are mostly soldiers and demos in the map

    You must have been on RED then. I think only BLU's spawn gets it, regardless of map.
