    Probably only available by plug-in, but I'd like to see someone create a gamemode where you can toggle in and out of the cart mode/slide
    Would basically turn into something like tribes, but it would be interesting to see what people would come up with... I mean even just the limitation of no weapon within cart mode would require some balance, but I'd love to see something like a solider pogoing into a cart slide and go flying off a ramp or even run into someone and deal damage based on his velocity. (Fat scout could even be a thing)

    Now there's a bug that makes items disconnect from player models and start flying around by themselves, as well as making items that are still attached to players constantly flicker between their proper position and a spot a few units away.

    Fun times.

    EDIT: Oh, wait, no, it's the entire player model that keeps looping after they die. And if the player dies, their own items start animating near whoever they're spectating. Possibly all of that on top of the stuff I just described. It'll be hilarious if this turns out to be somehow connected to the infinite taunt bug that they have no idea how to fix and we're stuck with it for months.

    I wonder if it really does need a plugin... it's all addconds, right? You can set those via trigger.

    I don't know about you guys, but for me, after this latest update, Hammer is taking an obscenely long time to render maps. Anyone else having that problem?

    With this update my team fortress 2 seems to be stuck in this update loop. when it finishes the download it simply starts again and i can't seem to get it to stop. each 'update' takes 15 minutes. any of you guys got this problem?

    Very common problem, we all have probably run into a one point before learning it. Just close hammer, let the update finish then you'll probably have to validate your local game files. (Someone can and has explained it much better probably multiple times, but...after the steampipe update we now execute hammer from tf2 folder, so technically the old hammer state/files conflicts with the new update files and steam gets mad.)

    edit: to clarify, having hammer open while updating tf2 is causing the problem

    AND COMPLETELY UNRELATED EDIT: Since it's addcond is that limited to simple triggers? while it would be interesting having certain parts of the map be tied into the carts, I think it would ultimately limit gameplay. I mean what I was thinking was literally anywhere, the player could press a key (probably just a bind f "say !cart" -- or something to toggle in and out) to get into the cart and slide a ramp and then toggle again to get out and back into regular movement. I think you'd have to internally mess with the speed of the cart as well because it is simply much faster than most anything else.
