NEW TFC UPDATE?!
So I've noticed a few things different in TFC. There's no news on any update, but here are the differences from yesterday.

AutoRifle muzzle flare is changed
Nailgun muzzle flare is changed
SuperShotgun killmodel is changed
Incendiary cannon model is changed

If you guys notice any others, please let me know and I'll add em.

Also, is this part of the Beta I've been hearing about? Please let me know.

Now for the discussion part, what do you guys think this means for TFC? Is this a good or a bad thing. If they were to make a MAJOR change to TFC, what do you think it will be? Free to play? Post your thoughts!

This is part of the Linux update. Whether these changes are wanted, and which other things were "fixed", is still unknown, as far as my information goes..

I'd like to know why I have the new HUD stuff too even though I'm not even opted into any beta. I noticed it when the superhotty kill message changed. Also, some of the slot sprites changed too. I have the "HD" folded stock image of the supershotty, and slot 1 now displays the demo's g-launcher instead of a crowbar. Strange.

Considering all the stripped features and bugs that came with the Linux update to the original HL, I'll definitely be holding off on this one until it goes live and I literally have no other choice. Already backed up all my custom stuff too, just in case. We'll see how it goes...

When I asked people's reactions in game, I felt reminded of the switch from WON to steam. It seems as though people don't want their game touched or altered in any way, which is nice because that's what we've gotten used to over the years. It's hard to tell what is a good or bad tweak. Some things like slow effects from caltrops and leg shots being healed by passing through doors could be fixed, and I wouldn't really mind. But there are other things that I've gotten used to, like the nailgrenade "exploit". Good players can hear the nailgrenade and act swiftly enough to avoid the damage anyway. It just adds more uniqueness to TFC and I think that's what separates it from all these new games.

As for the SteamPipe Beta, I opted in, and all I remember from it was the reload and green bag noises being ridiculously annoying, and the regular shotgun sounding more powerful than the supershotty.

If you ask me its a bad thing. I already customized all of my sprites and models for team fortress. I had to disable auto updates because its going in and changing things that I really don't want changed or messed with. Tfc is an old game, a classic game, and a game that if updated, should be completely optional. If they make these updates mandatory, the few people that play it competitively anymore will not.

Why in the hell are you people ♥♥♥♥ing with my game? 15 years old and you wanna make changes to it? Leave my god damn game alone and go fix some real games with some real problems that people actually play instead of trying to run off the few remaining players. We want our custom TFC, we dont want your piece of ♥♥♥♥ updates. And I believe I stand for the entire community when I say LEAVE TFC ALONE!. THANKS

Im in the beta and as long as you backup the tfc folder before hand and slowly move stuff back over when you converted to the beta which now puts tfc in the half life folder its fine :)

I think we could make a second grenade for snipers, update all weapons alill, some weapons and classes are less used than others and shuld be fixed i think, like the lazer pistol the Enginer has... never andestood the point of that weapon at all. And yes, TFC today shuld be free. Otherwies, I love the game, I dont think we actually need a huge update, just a few changes, new models and such, like a reskin.

Are you people confusing the implementation of the ancient HL HD stuff as TFC specific updates?

There isn't any actual gameplay changes as of yet is there? So stop whining. I welcome core changes/fixes/improvements if they ever happen, which I doubt.

TFC went down hill when they introduced teleporters anyway. There's always 1.1.0.6 to fall back on.

If it were up to me, I wouldn't have a stick up my butt when it comes to updates. I'm open to some new ideas because I'll always be a fan of this game, no matter what happens to it. But, on the other hand, I know theres a lot I wouldn't want changed.

For example

Some of these things we've grown to accept as useless weapons, but that's only made it better to kill someone with. The spanner is almost useless in a fight, but that only makes it humiliating to kill someone with.

I do think there are small things that could be changed. Maybe the medkits infect could be a little more reliable instead of only working some of the time. <-- This kinda stuff.

I remember at the time it seemed kinda weird, but in the end I think it was a great implementation. It adds a whole new dynamic to gameplay.

If you like playing "find the offy tele", sure.

Are you sure you don't have the german version on? That version censored THE HELL out of TFc and made all the classes into robots, you couldn't tell which class was which.

Well besides the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ of the Blue team in Cashbah, I find teleporters fine as long as they don't upgrade it like in TF2.
