Basicly the way Steam NOW works on your PC. Long Story short, under the "old/current" way Your computer basicly checked several places where there was no file, before load a file. The Big thing is that TF2 will take a faster to load anything from disk. It will damage some mods, however Left 4 Dead 2 and DOTA2 already use Steampipe so mod makers can make changes to make them work again.

I hope they fix it, first. ;) I tried launching Beta TF2 on my Mac and the application hang for over 5 minutes -- which, by my count, is not faster.

I hope that the update won't get rid of custom weapon skins. I like my Pyro shooting fire out of his hands.

It won't be getting rid of anything, however it might temporarily break some mods.

This update is really just changing the way TF2 files are stored on your hard drive and moving away from .gcf to .VPK

I've tried the beta a bit, and the speed at which the game launches and loads levels is quite astounding compared to what it was.

I'll test it and see the speed for myself, but when I restart my PC it just redownloads from 1% AHHH, THE BUGS, THE BUGS!
