    And if I am not mistaken someone (I think ABS) said something about Valve possibly fixing func_rotating in TF2.

    So fun update for all! :D

    So they're going to "improve painting" on every hat? Sounds to me like they're replacing the old method with giving every hat a dedicated skin for every color.

    Here's hoping Valve doesn't fix the Iron Curtain.

    I fairly sure i'm correct in saying that no this isn't what Daimao has done. He's made new painted hat materials where the painted section is white and the .vmt(?) changes the colour of that. So twice the amount of textures for each hat, painted and unpainted

    The not-so-secret-secret is out!

    Will be a good patch, it should be out Tuesday after the Valve guys get back from holidays.

    Yeah, saw this on FP earlier. Will be good to get the paint fix in game, though I already use it. I really want a trophy belt now :D

    Decent patch, but my friend is oh-so-desperately waiting for the new Medic pack and game mode. He wants to run around like Freakazoid...

    Trophy Belt being paintable.. well. I expected better.

    I main as Sniper and that's my favorite hat. I really would have loved to see something much better than the same thing they did with the Soldier's Stash.

    What I believe they should have done with the Trophy Belt is have the sniper's default hat as part of the Trophy Belt and let it be paintable.
    In other words, instead of the Trophy Belt being just the belt itself (with the teeth) you have the hat the sniper wears when you don't have a hat equipped as part of the Trophy Belt. This could allow for better possibilities with the Trophy Belt.

    I'd paint the Trophy Belt black to achieve this sort of look: Example 1 and Example 2.

    Personally, I think that would be a lot better than what they're going to do with the Trophy Belt in the next update.

    The Sniper's hat isn't actually part of the hat itself. The Trophy Belt is built around the hat. They'd need to overhaul the whole thing in order to do that.

    Yeah, which is unfortunate. I really would love to dye it black and have a Crocodile Dundee style hat for the Trophy Belt. If I was any good with graphical editing I'd try to make an image to share of how it might look. Sadly, my skills are lacking there.
