    An update to Team Fortress 2 has been released. The update will be applied automatically when you restart Team Fortress 2. The major changes include:

    • - Added Chemistry Sets as a bonus drop. Chemistry Sets are recipe items that have varying inputs and varying outputs. You can complete a Chemistry Set by fulfilling all of its inputs, which will then give you the items it has listed in its outputs.
    • - The in-game player status panel has been updated to show an animated image of your character with their current loadout
      • - Can be disabled in Advanced Options
    • - Added Romevision sharing: anyone playing Mann vs. Machine on the same server with an owner of the Hardy Laurel can now opt-in to Romevision
      • - Manage your Romevision preference in the Advanced Options dialog
    • - Fixed a bug that would prevent Jarate and Mad Milk from applying to all targets within range
    • - Fixed a bug that would cause the Marked For Death icon to stay in the world after the owning player died
    • - Fixed a bug that would allow Spies to exploit the Kunai's higher overheal limit
    • - Fixed a bug that prevented the Medigun's "Share Power Ups" upgrade from working correctly in Mann vs. Machine mode
    • - Fixed a bug that would cause the last few characters of text to be lost when copying text from input fields
    • - Fixed a client sv_cheats exploit related to the commentary dialog
    • - Fixed a problem that would cause the shotgun shell model to appear incorrectly third-person when using the Family Business
    • - Improved bot pathing behavior around ramps
    • - Bots can now reflect energy-based projectiles
    • - Fixed incorrect alpha in the backpack images for the Valley Forge and the Founding Father
    • - The Foppish Physician and the Distinguished Rogue are now paintable and are team-colored by default
    • - Added server log entries for jarate_attack and milk_attack when using Jarate, Mad Milk, or the Sydney Sleeper
    • - Fixed using an incorrect path for downloaded custom player sounds
    • - Fixed duplicate support/mission icons in the Mann vs. Machine HUD
    • - Don't allow players without admin access on the server to use the various entity-creating commands to create point_servercommand entities
    • - Updated cp_egypt_final
      • - Fixed players building inside of Blu's first spawn
    • - Updated cp_manor_event
      • - Fixed players building in rafters
    • - Updated cp_mountainlab
      • - Fixed clip brush exploit above hallway leading toward final cap
      • - Fixed exploit where players could be trapped in small space near final cap using teleporters
    • - Updated plr_hightower
      • - Added nobuild to cliff bottom to prevent engineers building in the kill volume
      - Updated the localization files

    Oh dear, this looks like a privilege escalation vulnerability. point_servercommand is dangerous.

    Now if only they could make it stop happening to hats and cosmetic items themselves.

    EDIT: Haha, nope!

    Uninstall any custom HUDs or you'll crash as soon as you join a team

    edit: alternatively put cl_hud_playerclass_use_playermodel 0 in your autoexec.cfg

    (The Medallion is a func_medal again, instead of a Tournament Medal)

    It should really be a prop_medal anyway. It is neither brush based nor performing a function.

    The most important thing is that it's no longer bearing such a boring title. I am happy.
