    So did I basically waste my time making that photoshop for Jethro?



    I suppose I'm overreacting; it didn't take too much time or effort but still, time was wasted

    Don't forget pl_badlands.

    The only way for that to work is to have a mechanic similar to pl_waste, otherwise the map would require a lot of modifications in order to be balanced as a pl map.

    Unless there's something extraordinary about soho that makes it stand out from other koth maps. I'm not going to be getting myself too excited for it. My hope is that it is a sub-mode of the koth variety -- it uses the same base rules but has some additional rules of its own to make it different. Kinda like how cp_gorge and cp_5gorge play completely differently but share a map prefix.

    I doubt we would've hit 1K posts in 2 days, but that new thread smell.

    Preemptive name idea for V7: The 2nd Update Dust Bowl of 2012

    Of course, depends on if we don't get a major update this thread.

    Tf2 wiki always take some time to get the info up.

    This thread is way faster.

    What does that have to do with how reliable the source of information is? The reason it takes time is because it goes through several people to get verified and confirmed -- it wouldn't be that great of a thing if the wiki boasted misinformation on topics.

    Don't get your hopes up.

    Try a more-realistic approach. Like so: 2 explosive weapons for Demoman.

    The largest amount of weapons to ever get pumped into a single update was 22, and they were dispersed between all classes (save Engineer). Soldier got 5 weapons in that update, the most he's ever gotten at once, and most of them were melee weapons or Mantreads.

    Now imagine the magnitude of effort it would require to add in a minimum of 6 explosive weapons for the Demoman. That's estimating low, with each set only containing 1 weapon and a cosmetic.

    Be realistic and your hopes won't be dashed down like a paraplegic trying to climb the down escalator.

    New explosives would be really nice. I'm actually looking forward to Soho for the new textures and models I'm sure the map will have. I use the hammer editor daily, so new mapping goodies are always fun.

    Let the people dream

    Anyone will be happy with alot of explosive weapons for the demo. Problem is they are hard as hell to balance and they will become those weapons that everybody hates to death.

    Or maybe not.

    It's a map being made by valve seen twice now in Beta 2 and I forget the other, I think it was Alpha 3; either way it's always in a password protected server and 3Dnj is always there with them.

    Let me have my silly dreams.
    I want to wake up one day to see 18 brand new Demoman weapons that all shoot bombs.
    Even the melee weapons.
