    Well, Nanobalaclava is a balaclava, which is what Spy uses.

    Point and Shoot is a magician hat, but we don't have any magicians in the game so each class can use it.
    The Private Eye was a joke about the Demoman's good eye, yet later they updated it so the Spy and the Medic could wear it as well.

    actually it was submitted as a Demoman hat, got added to the game as a Spy hat, and then later updated for Demoman. And then much later for Medic. And then added to a set for Medic and basically became more of a Medic hat

    And the Point and Shoot is a hat worn by a magician but can be worn by 9 classes who are not magicians.

    I cast Maggot Missile.

    Have a preview, it's coming, the calming before the schema themed storm


    (this uses some voodoo magic on c_models, so hopefully Valve is open to it)



    All the scripting is done, the media is being created now! Shooting for early next week, maybe even tomorrow!

    Yess! can you force c_models to only display in the highest detail LOD on first person?

    An issue with c_models on lower specs comptuer it will show lower LODS which is a problem in some cases.

    There are two sets being sold on tf2outpost right now. According to one of the traders, he asked one of the Valve employees at the signings what the code produces:

    Update. Today Im met with valve employees and they said that they haven't decided what it is going to be. So to all you speculators out there "YOU ARE WRONG!" unless your guessed right.

    Oh yeah, that reminds me. The Point and Shoot should really be an "unusualable" hat so that there could be an Orbiting Fire one.




    100 buds pls (themed))

    Well technicaly every Unusual effect would be themed in some obscure way to a traders mind, bubbles are themed to water spells, ghosts are themed to re-animating spells, and nuts and bots are themed to levitation spells, any fire unusual would probably fit the hat best though, because of the description. That hat would be the most expensive unusual of all time...

    They gave Monday Night Combat's assassin head to the pyro, the class that hates assassins.
    I think giving a stealthy helmet to the pyro would fit slightly better than that.

    Hey ned, I have an idea
    What about taking the Treasure Hat's particle effect (coins are falling from the crate) and set it on the Scout's new backpack?

    This particle is only used on the Treasure Hat, it'd be great to see it more often. Plus it'd make the backpack so much better.

    Also I am a little whiny kid and the Haunted quality's color needs to be changed, it's the same as the Unusual quality's

    Would it work that well though? The duffel bag is full of just regular dollars, not coins.

    it would have to be very, VERY different from the paper trail effect from the intelligence, because i can see a falling dollar effect very easily being confused for the intelligence trail in normal gameplay

    i meant the enemy team

    as in, a scout running around a corner with a paper trail following him is probably going to get mistaken for somebody carrying the intel

    What's weird about Pyromania and the updates following it until now haven't added the new Valve logo video. They did so with Portal 2, so I have to wonder what's preventing them from doing so.

       it'd be HILARIOUS to freak out 10-year olds though
