    That's fixed.

    What's also fixed is the out-of-memory issues plaguing OS X while on high settings. Still. It's using over 2GB at an offline server which is too close to the 2.3GB crash mark, and ultra texture settings still isn't enabled. But it's a step in the right direction. After 8 months. About time.

    Wish they'd add new styles to some of the hats so we can choose to repaint the team color instead of the yellow trim...

    I have no idea why people think it looks bad on sniper. Looks great for me.

    The creator put it in as a joke expecting it to get declined, its almost a straight copy+paste job, so the colours dont even match sniper and it has Pyro's head silhouette

    But Valve liked it and signed off on it anyway?

    Oh,LOOK! They fixed an exploit where you can crouch on a random stage so you can bug yourself and build outside of the Borneo map!

    Now we need the same fix on Freight,Dustbowl,Barnblitz,Gravelpit and who knows what other maps..

    That bug is a Source bug, not a map bug or a TF2 bug. It's on EVERY source game. (except maybe alien swarm)

    You can bug through the side of the ramp at second on Vanguard now apparently.

    You can Schrödinger's crouch with every ramp you can go under in every map in the game, custom or stock.

    We'll probably see more maps get updated so that ramps get blocked off so this exploit is "fixed" for a while. That is, until people find a new way to do it. Best thing would be to fix it in the engine itself, but that means messing with the engine on a very deep level, something you probably shouldn't do in an engine that's over 10 years old.

    Doesn't it rely on setting a teleporter somewhere weird? Perhaps they could fix it by restricting teleporter placement more, making the exit require more space above and around to be set down.

    Nope. Can crouch. We have the issue in black mesa. Normally you design around these things.
