    Take a look at the backround of the new update video. There are orchards, a new decal reading 'Jobbs Orchard', and a kewl apple tree. Is this just a clever pun towards apple, or will we have a new map?

    I think it might be something exclusive to the video, kind of like how Meet the Spy was in a totally revamped 2fort.

    Of course, who knows what could come in future updates? The Scout Update's page introducing the Bonk! Atomic Punch had an early version of Pipeline as the background. Maybe this map is for the Engineer Update? Only time will tell...

    Kinda unrelated, but the sniper's crosshair was different in the intro there too. Gotta love the visual pun with him zooming in on a window, then an apple. :p

    I didn't even catch the pun when he was looking at a window. That's awesome. :) I guess I should have noticed when it had different-colored glass and was wavy.

    I just realized:

    Jobbs = Steve Jobbs/Jobs/whatever, head of Apple :p

    It's likely just a tiny map with a bunch of references for the video

    I think the whole video is very clever. I do like the "new" theme though. Hopefully it will be used in a future map. :)

    wait.... what new theme? Its just ultra generic doorway+room using existing textures and models only with the exception of the windows/apple references.

    Nothing new at all :mellow:

    It's newer than you YM.
    Humph

    But I know what Blob means, it feels different, but it could easily just be the lighting or angles

    If you seriously think you are alone you clearly haven't been on the SPUF in a while.


    I envy you.

    It's a miscellaneous item and looks weird. If you want a kind of PC exclusive item, try Cheater's Lament.
