    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:
    • Fixed a client crash related to the robot destruction HUD
    • Fixed an exploit where players could circumvent successful kick votes
    • Demoman can no longer detonate sticky bombs while taunting
    • Strange Ranks are no longer displayed on the web (Trade, Steam backpack, Market) and only show 'Strange' as a prefix
    • Default value for convar sv_vote_issue_scramble_teams_cooldown has been increased to 20 minutes
    • Fixed sound clipping issue for the Demoman's Spent Well Spirits taunt
    • Added Jarate lightwarp preset to the Steam Workshop importer
    • Updated the model/materials for the Neckwear Headwear to fix a lighting issue
    • Updated pl_cactuscanyon
      • Increased amount of time the middle gates remain open before and after a train passes in stage 2
      • Adjusted spawn times at end of stage 2
    • Updated rd_asteroid
      • Removed env_sun from the skybox
      • Optimized skybox performance
      • Lowered Scout/Sniper damage against robots
      • Fixed doubled-up health kits on the bridge
      • Added area portals to the base interiors to improve performance
      • Continued art-pass process
      • Fixed zebra-style art on static props on systems that used lower texture quality
      Added experimental cpu_frequency_monitoring convar to detect thermal throttling. If you have TF2 performance problems on Windows, add "+cpu_frequency_monitoring 2" to the TF2 command line to see if CPU thermal throttling is an issue. If the displayed CPU frequency percentage drops below about 80-85% then you may have a problem with your CPU slowing down due to overheating. If it drops below 50-55% then you may have a serious problem. CPU overheating can be caused by overclocking, insufficient cooling, insufficient airflow, failing or dirty fans, or other causes. The CPU frequency results are displayed with cl_showfps or net_graph. For more detail see https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2715-YIPD-6873

    People were ranking their weapons up to Australian and tricking people into thinking they were Australium weapons which are worth a lot more.

    Why remove the env_sun? Newsflash, asteroids still tend to orbit stars.

    The map has a sunrise glow in the skybox. That's where the star is. The env_sun was redundant.

    The Scout told me Asteroid orbits around your mom, but I'm no expert on it, you'd have to ask one of our resident astronomers.

    The env_sun, contrary to popular belief, doesn't cast light. All it does it create a sun glow. Since they have a skycard that does the same thing, theres no need for it.

    Correcta mundo. Scouts mom is the center of the solar system.

    Also, note that it wasn't even lined up to the sunrise in the skybox anyway.
