I'm fairly useless past this point. I signed up as I had a fair knowledge of soho and wanted to sign up to say the pyro was probably not burning it down in that picture. In retrospect I could have gone down the route of catgut, cats, mice and cheese, but I just woke up.
Cheese Wheel est. 1-2.5 Refined? I expect these prices to crash.
I think most guests went to bed or are working.
I think the theory about the new items (goldfish, plank..) turning into weapons when MtP is released might be true.
Some might become weapons, other might become hats, miscs, taunts even.
Maybe this is the only way to obtain those new possible items.
How a small bit of pocket lint is going to turn into a weapon/misc is anyones guess.
Seriously, there's some wacky stuff in TF2, but I don't think valve will go as far as making a cheesewheel or banana peel a weapon.
Cheese wheel at least has precedent in the other edibles.
Edit: While I'm here, which items don't conform to the quote exactly?
If we're eliminating the impossible, maybe those ones have to go.
That's according to the wiki, I've never tested. They are all pretty scrambled if you ask me. The parts on the Cheese Wheel are also reversed and the Secret Diary apparently reads "the deeds of hellish cruelty and none the wiser" with no visible separation between both.Code:Goldfish : Think of the Secret Diary : the deeds of hellish cruelty and none the wiser Cheese Wheel : the hidden wickedness... may go on... Banana Peel : ...may go on... Pocket Lint : ...the... ...which... Barn Door Plank : ...year in, year out... Damaged Capacitor: in such places, and...
There's a lot of redundancy too, like "the" being repeated and "may go on" being in both the Cheese Wheel and the Banana Peel.
What I noticed immediately from that was that the banana peel is completely unnecessary for that quote to be complete. It's the only one which has no parts of the quote that can't be found with another item.
Is Valve, they are pretty good when they gonna announce something big. Mystery everywhere and after that, BAM, awesomeness. Also, what if Valve wants us to discover the secret before announce it? I mean, we should have to discover all the cake and until that happens, Valve will not do a shit.
And what if those itemes are for making our hats unusuals? Imagine: Napper's ; Effect: Rotating Cheese.
Probably this objets would be a craft item to get new weapons, combined with metal (scrap or rec) or with an specific weapon.
Hmm, it seems the Banana is completely unrelated then?... Did anyone try deleting one of the items? Since we're eliminating the impossible, maybe something is bond to happen if a certain item is deleted?
This is the version I and a couple others have been working with. The wiki version of some of the quotes, they assumed a couple places that should have stayed ellipses were thre-letter words (and in one case, a two-letter word).Code:Goldfish : Think of Secret Diary : deeds of hellish cruelty none the wiser Cheese Wheel : the hidden wickedness go on Banana Peel : may in Pocket Lint : the which Barn Door Plank : year in, year out Damaged Capacitor: such places, and
"I have devised seven separate explanations, each of which would cover the facts as far as we know them. But which of these is correct can only be determined by the fresh information which we shall no doubt find waiting for us."
BANANA IS NOT CORRECT
What if banana will be a hat
So what happened in the sherlock holmes story after that quote? I never read it, but there might be more clues
Like, what does "such places" refer to?
From the excerpt I read it was about large open spaces.
He was talking about the relative safety in closeness, as generally people will be in earshot, and all these nice little spaced out country houses scare the crap out of him.
SPUF is saying Meet the Pyro will be like the book, Pyro is worried about Miss Pauling working for the Announcer (like Sherlock Holmes is worried about that woman working for a lunatic hag)
My alt isn't finding any drops. Well, one of them isn't. The other is finding quite a bit.
Yeah, Valve are the kings of making shit up as they go along.
There was no Redmond or Blutarch until 2009....or 2010. I forget.
Hell, even Saxton Hale didn't exist until 2009.
Hooray! Found some pocket lints + Scottish Resistance. IZ GOOD
I really miss that not more people build onto the James Bond disguise secret spybases theme that although still prevalent has been severely undermined as of late. I'd like more maps that feel more like massive spybases disguised as something else, rather than different environments with secret spybase rooms hidden away in some corner only used to spawn players.
koth_soho was that community map Valve was testing a while back, yes?
WHoa whoa WHOA WHOA
Guys. I was just reading the TF2 wiki and noticed this
"On a personal level, Radigan Conagher had a fascination for Abraham Lincoln. In the first edition of The Engineer Update, several pages of notes are dedicated to inventing an object that could have saved Lincoln from John Wilkes Booth. Some devices include: a hat that would shoot at the attacker, a chair that would swing over and under a balcony away from the attacker, and a teleporter. "
Radigan built a third life extender machine...Pyro is Abraham Lincoln. The thing on his back isn't an air tank, its a portable life extender!
And he's insane because he's a reanimated corpse. Perhaps that house that got burned down was Radigans house. It looks like a western town house!
