    Over the last week we've taken you through some of our thinking around maps, weapons and items. We thought you might find it interesting if we walked you through the process we use to ship an update to TF2.


    There we go, update shipped.

    Somehow Valve managed to screw something up on Goldrush
    [​IMG]

    That door looks and acts like a broken areaportal but all other doors in the map work

    Better screen for an idea of where I am, broken door is behind the gate on second stage, first point
    [​IMG]

    Other than that, this is a pretty cool update. I'm not a fan of the bright HDR on cp_process or cp_standin's 3d-skybox, but other than that everything seems to be pretty cool.

    Does it do this when that gate is opened? It might be an intentional optimization thing. Although the defending team can get up there by jump, can't they?

    I like this update, except for no weapons |:|
    But I'm getting a disk write error and it won't force update, anyone else having this issue?

    It is probably a wise choice not to add new weapons at the same time they rebalance such a significant amount of existing ones.

    Yeah, I was. I went into the downloads folder, inside the 440 folder were some files. I moved them to the teamfortress2 folder and then tried to launch again. It updated an worked after that.

    People are getting mad about 1-2 changes they disagree with but it's gotta be said the vast majority of changes is really good. I daresay if you disagree with a change you're biased in some way or got overly attached to something you shouldn't have. From a general game design standpoint none of them are downright broken or anything (anymore).

    There is a big bug with the Quick-Fix but that's gonna get fixed asap

    The fact the powerjack speed boost only effects your speed when active makes me sad, I miss that particle speed inheritance on my flames

    What about minisentries? Other than fixing an exploit that most people who built them didn't use, I don't see anything that makes dealing with them less frustrating. It must be said, I love the approach TF2 Tightrope came up with of making the Homewrecker reduce sentry damage when equipped; it might not have been done specifically with minisentries in mind, but it does turn the Pyro into a minisentry killing machine.

    Everyone used that bug where they wanted to or not, when you pop a mini up in someone's face while they were chasing you, the bug helped.

    I find it rather curious that Valve called it a bug when I'm pretty sure no one else ever has.

    Bug = untintended effect.

    Regular sentries don't and there's no reason why mini sentries should, so it's pretty clearly an unintended effect.
