    After a 7-8 email conversation with Robin on Fearlezz's little mindgames with Sourcemod, I sent him these questions, two of which were asked by other people in the chat.

    And Robin's reply that I just saw today (haven't had good internet luck),

    There you have it folks. TL;DR: No changes to One-way Payload HUD, Weapons will have options for both sides of your screen, and Valve hires tall, fast modelers.

    Wait my little mindgames? You do relies that this exploit has developed so much that you can now do it without sourcemod?

    He was. He just finished his work on the SvS update, then was fired.

    Robin went out looking for him on the street, was told he would be given a hug, and ran in fear.

    Who would be afraid of a guy who rides a horse around the office and fires BB guns at people?

    No i didn't. But then when/what version was it turned into a model? Or was it always a model? I had always assumed it was a displacement.

    It started life as a displacement, then was turned into a model originaly by someone else using XSI, but that has an iffy user agreement so valve opted to remake it themselves to negate hunting down XSI and getting a special agreement with them. This is why hoodoo wasnt with the scout update.

    Wait...you mean it took valve from the time of the scout update to the spy and sniper update to make a model of a door? Damn, they really do work slowly :D

    Ah, now I see what you were talking about in the other thread. Now I've got to find a new modeling program to learn..
