VS Saxton Hale
Stock Weapons Only
I'm like 90% that works.
ALSO: I'll buy any and all uncraftable hats! Currently I have like zero metal though.
Send me a PM or a friend request or a trade if we're on the server if you'd like to offer me your HELLA RAD HATS for 1 or 2 reclaimed.
...But I might be horrendously wrong.
Well now we have hats that rotate every day and convince people to spend more money on stuff.
Team Fortress 2 Update Released
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:
Added daily periodic reward hats for duel wins, map stamp purchases, and gifts given
Updated YouTube replay publishing functionality to automatically include a link to the uploader's Steam Community profile
Did not update the localization files that did not need updating
Removed ladders that looked like they could be climbed
Note missed from last week's update:
Updated the in-game tips with community submitted versions
These hats won't even be worth TRYING for for at least a month.
Mainly since everyone and their pyro will be trying for them.
I wonder how long until totally unfair dual servers get started...
Yeah, like I'd go for those hats anyway. Seems a waste. I mean come on, spending like ten bucks for a hat you're only getting for one day? Nope.
I'm thinking these hats are for keeps. You just have to have the most gifts/duel wins/stamp purchases of a day to receive it.
edit: no wait, I misread the "periodic" part. hmms...
Wait, you only get them for a day?
What a waste!
The only one even mildly worth it would be the dual hat, and that will likely go to those obsessive players who have like a 100,000 hours of game play or something.
Kinda hoping this is in no way related to the super secret project they were working on.
They said it wasn't a hat or a map, but the 1 day cycling mechanic... which makes me wonder.. why? is not something I'd be looking for as a permanent gimmick for other stuff.
I think it would be better if they were given out permanently but had a number or something on them
"Gifting Man From Gifting Land #1" to whoever wins today
or like a string in the description saying "Awarded on 2/31/08 to ______"
anyway they look like the Full Head Of Steam with different greeblies on it so it's not a huge loss
...But I might be horrendously wrong.
Maybe the hat could rotate daily but the winner still got something else that was permanent. Or maybe everyone gets the hat, but the person who won it that day gets some sort of Unusual effect.
Whoever has one of these things should try to tag/giftwrap it and maybe make it permanent.
well, the series 40 are apparently dropping now, and took the place of 30.. which mean any series 30 left is worth a ton.
Now that I have all plug-ins working as they should (and Fast(ish)DL), I will begin to move onto the next thing; custom maps!
We're going to start from scratch, and add maps one by one. After testing them a couple of times, I'll get a rough idea of it's popularity, and then we can decide whether to keep it or not. First up: Ctf_Turbine_Pro! Namely because it has been mentioned so much and I freaking love Turbine.
EDIT: My current thoughts on it: it seems to fix Turbine's flaws, while still keeping it's unique feel. But for some reason, certain things are incredibly shiny. Will look into later.
EDIT: Problem has been fixed. Somewhere along the line, the _rc1 on the end was removed. This caused problems, somehow. Voodoo magic, I tell you.
according to this ingame screenshot and the wiki images, these one-day hats seem to have obnoxiously large outlines similar to the glow around payloads. I haven't seen this myself ingame, but that's really annoying. It'll certainly get you noticed though (which I guess is the whole point of getting it?)
