April 29, 2008 - Team Fortress 2 Update Released

    * Added Goldrush
    * Added Character Info and Loadout to the main menu
    * Added 39 Medic achievements
    * Added unique Medic items: The Blutsaugher, The Kritzkrieg, and The Ubersaw
    * Added new attack animations to most melee weapons
    * Added new speech for the Heavy and Demoman
    * Added Stopwatch mode to Tournament mode
    * Automatically used on Attack/Defense maps
    * Teleporter effect no longer shows up on invisible or disguised Spies
    * Spies disguised as their own team can now capture control points
    * Increased force taken by pipebombs by bullets and explosions
    * Target ID hud is now colored red or blue to match the spectator target
    * Tournament mode no longer ends matches early if the time limit is nearly up when a new round starts
    * Fixed exploit where clients could start benchmark mode on servers
    * Fixed drowning exploit that allowed players to regenerate health
    * Fixed reload exploit that allowed plays to fire instantly after switching weapons
    * Fixed flamethrower bug where a player flush against a wall couldn't be lit on fire from the front
    * Fixed invulnerability overlay not drawing if the invuln player was previously on fire
    * Fixed "times used" entry in teleporters maxing out at 32
    * Fixed rare client crash on level change during control point capturing
    * Minor fix to stat gathering to prevent players using sv_cheats to easily garner achievements

* For mapmakers:
    * Mapmakers can now directly place the tf_gamerules entity into their map. Fixes Hammer thinking the inputs to it are broken
    * Mapmakers can now place Engineer buildings directly into a map, with an option for them to be invulnerable
    * Added "AddRedTeamScore" and "AddBlueTeamScore" inputs to tf_gamerules
    * Added "SetRequiredObserverTarget" input to tf_gamerules. Force spectators to use the specified viewpoint

* Granary
    * Added setup time logic, and gates to the middle
    * Fixed an overlay alignment bug on one of blue's gate signs
    * Minor lighting fixes in red/blue spawns

* 2Fort
    * Added medium ammo and health to basement hallways
    * Added small ammo and health to top of spiral
    * Fixed a clip brush exploit outside blue sniper deck
    * Fixed number "2" overlay on front of red base not being assigned to the brush face

There ya go! Just in the nick of Valve time.

I've highlighted a few of the more interesting ones. The exploit where clients could start benchmark mode on servers sounds like what killed our server (along with a few thousand others) last night. The sods.

Spies can now take teleporters without a care, they no longer leave team-coloured sparkles when cloaked or disguised. Damn it. Spycheck like never before Smile

Capturing a point disguised as one of your own team sounds cool, though.

Mapmakers can build fixed sentry gun emplacements in maps. Expect some "death alley" and anti-spawncamper maps soon Smile

Gates and setup time added to Granary - sounds like it's no longer a scout rush to point 3 and win from there - I'm happy. I hate Granary with 6 scouts (on other team) Very Happy

And some supplies dropped into 2fort - in the basement? Guess it's either near the sewer stairs, or the intelligence room.

And of course Goldrush, and the Medic stuff.

Finally, anyone with a Steam account can play TF2 for free this weekend. Tell your sister and your brother and your papa and your mama....

Thank god they have made some of them easier (i.e. not 10 million healing, but 1, which I already have) and the number of kills whilst ubered has gone down for the 3 classes (scout, heavy and pyro) and all of those are do able now in normal play with a few of them still being tough enough to take a month or two to get.

I'm not that interested in the ubersaw anyway as I don't think I'll use it that much - providing I get the Blutsaugher and Crtizcrieg I'm happy. Waht a bugger that I have to be in work in 20 mins...ah crap.

See you all later Smile
