    If you live in a place unlucky enough to have seasons, the weather's probably starting to turn into what meteorologists call "garbage," and like all of us, you're starting to think about a nice vacation to the tropics. And if you're also like us, you then start remembering how all those places have filthy water and enormous spiders and those weird little fish that crawl up your–anyway, the point is you're going nowhere.


    So instead, we’re bringing the tropics to you, with a new tropical jungle-themed map we're working on! And we'd love the talented folks in the Workshop to join us!


    For those of you already developing for existing community themes, good news: There's a lot you've already developed that we think will fit in perfectly with the tropical theme.


    For the rest of you Workshop creators, consider this a call to action for all things tropical over the next few months: particles, maps, items and anything else. If you've got something tropical in mind, get cracking, because we'd love to see it. Don't forget to upvote your favorites in the Workshop!

    So i guess the payload map you have making has been delayed because of this?

    I'm excited for a new Valve map, along with whatever new assets become stock for us to use in the future!

    Also, "Park"

    I have like a bunch of questions;

    A. Will this take the place of Smiss-mass?

    B. Will this take place before or after the Pyro update?

    and

    C. Is this the Mayann Project or a separate one from that?

    I'm hoping the valve team incorpoerates alot of whats already been put into that project, theres alot there for valve to work with and community members here already have alot of top notch maps for it!

    Valve chose a broader theme than just Mayann, because it'll make for more variation between the maps.

    If anything, it'd be the other way around

    A. No, that's dumb. Smissmas will be just as disappointing as always
    B. Who the heck knows, did Valve ever give any indication of when Pyro update was?
    C. This is likely "Hey we like Mayan but want to open it up a bit more"

    It's almost like Mayann was an incredibly limited theme or something...

    They stated that it'd be a 'few months' in the blog post - so it's 100% not Smissmas.

    Probably because hey! New community update policy. (And really just adding this because 3 is a nice round number for answering)

    Exactly, Mayann was a project being worked on by under a dozen people, Valve then said updates need to be open to everyone, so they need a more open theme.

    What's going to happen with Winglet's video? Is he going to make it tie in, or is that a bust now that the update will have a broader focus?
