    MEET THE PYRO IS DONE AND COMING VERY SOON WITH "SOMETHING ELSE"
    http://www.gametrailers.com/episode/bonusround/603?ch=3

    Recap of last month's stuff
    - Tobor and robots on Foundry
    - Valve claims they will fix NeoDement's models
    - Valve will look at the Dumpster Pack after the Holidays (lol)
    - Make a wish kid gets community spine chilling skull and says he played raid mode

    Good places to find info
    - Wiki Schema Tracker
    - The Emporium right here on Facepunch, read between the lines
    - Sign up for the HLDS mailing list! DO IT

    Stuff that was speculated that was implemented!
    - Soda Popper creator mentions his revamped Soda Popper is being tested IMPLEMENTED
    - Community Schema is being "looked at" IMPLEMENTED
    - Ronin said his "paper" item is being tested. Not sure which item, he won't say. But it's being tested BOOTS
    - New tips are coming... eventually
    - Community schema: Valve added everything except the weapon sound portion. Maybe test in beta soon?
    - They added a "scout_shirt" equip region, but no item currently uses it

    Stuff that was DENIED
    - Model specific misc items acceptable (Pyro visor with Deus Specs!) NOPE.AVI

    Let the fun begin

    Who said they were acceptable? I know one's been made but there's no code to support it.

    The soda popper v2 is being tested? This makes me fucking happy seeing as I have been using it since BANG! released it! Honestly I do think Valve has something good planned for the next few months, I am thinking something along the lines of a hoard mode with robots and a bunch of fixes and buffs/nerfs.

    Also Ronin's mobile gun is being tested internally.

    I thought it was a paper item being tested

    I haven't heard much about the mobile sentry in awhile

    About the "paper" item. Ronin meant the Cowboy Vest he made for the Scout, the one that people complained looking like paper.
    This one.

    I agree I want it to be a misc item too so that you could make cool combos like this

    The way Ronin mentioned it was that another one of his "paper" items was being looked at, aside from the Cowboy Vest. As far as I know it's not the Pyro Poncho. (Although maybe it was a specific email he got?)

    I'm not sure why it's a misc, it was never intended as a misc.

    But then again neither was the Luchadore and that works decently well as a misc.

    I really think these numbers are worth looking into, especially the way that "12" was positioned. You can only see it from the position I'm looking from, otherwise it's blocked by the girder.

    Or have I missed something?

    The Luchadore doesn't clips with all the hats, and when it doesn't clip, it works really well.

    Well yeah, I'd usually think that's the case. But they hid that 12 in an odd position, so I've got to wonder...

    that's where the thread title "Revenge of the Tobor" came from :x

    There's also a hidden room with a sign covering up the letters so the sign reads "Tobor" which is Robot backwards

    So 12, 13, 22, 13, 1961... I hope the 13 doesn't insinuate a 2013 release, and instead suggest being released on the 13th of February (just before Valentine's Day) this year.

    According to this year's calendar, the 13th of Feb falls on a Monday, whereas the 22nd falls on a Wednesday. Valve usually updates on a Thursday, doesn't it?

    Looked on Google, found 1961 on wiki, apparently Henry Morton Robinson, a 62 year old American novelist, died on the 13th of January (a Friday no less) from second degree burns that he had sustained whilst taking a bath on December 23rd the previous year. Relevance of this is in question despite the apparent connections.

    Honestly, Valve has the power to send it's fans on a mystery hunt a'la Da Vinci Code sometimes.

    Well it's obviously not going to take them 6 weeks to make it. Not to mention they're not releasing it the INSTANT they finish it.

    well, it's thursday

    we've been getting either one community item or a promo since the start of January. I wonder what we'll see tonight, if anything.

    There's also the beta, where they might test things. I'm waiting for my schema to be tested, but I can see why it needs a lot of internal testing first (as those sounds might not even work right, honestly)
