    It's weird, when I logged in in around 7PM EST it had the background as the full moon but still couldn't get my costumes to appear. But when I logged in around 9-10PM it started to work. I guess it only works when its night time for PST people.

    Just for the record Crash and Hey You, hammer instances are the best thing ever and we are idiots for not using them.

    You can build stuff on the grid and rotate it arbitrarily in the destination map, which is amazing.

    We have to make another map after Stoneyridge just so we can use them.

    Yeah they sound neat. Probably pretty useful, just a pain to transfer between us.

    P.S. How's that explosion coming?

    Especially for doofuses that can't handle zip files. :rotate:

    Instancing would actually help multiple people working on the same map, divide the map into large chunks and hand them out, everyone can be working at the same time. With some handy source control like svn or git or something you could even do nightly syncs!

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    I totally put like 5 minutes of effort into looking into dropbox or some sort of solution like that to keep a constant sync between us when we started trading a lot.

    True story.

    I never play Medic so when I have this good of a run, it must be documented.

    That was a good run. I bet that spy at the end was disguised as an engineer. You can hear the "Nope."

    It's coming... like most projects that seem like they will be straightforward in the beginning this one is turning into a complex nightmare... but I will deliver and explosion of some shape or form.

    What's the hard part? Prepping the vmf for use in your animation, getting a satisfying animation, or getting the results into TF2?

    (this stuff is interesting because I want to try it sometime)

    Getting a good animation is tedious because of the setup required.

    Getting the results into TF2 is the nightmare part.

    BUT I WILL PREVAIL, I WILL TRIUMPH OVER THE MACHINES!

    Yeah I've gotten pretty good at getting static props into TF2, but animations terrify me.

    Also, tf2 updated. Mostly just a phlog nerf.

    And a sniper backpack if you're into that sort of thing.

  • UEAKCrashUEAKCrash heh Registered User regular
    More random arena map updates too.

    I'm watchin' you, Valve...

  • LittleBootsLittleBoots Registered User regular
    I wish they would seperate the SDK from Steam, the last 20 minutes have been spent trying to get the damn SDK to launch.

    Yeah that's the worst part of updates, not being able to get hammer to work because HEY WAIT TF2 UPDATE.

    Also, this is the new item.

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular
    Yeah I had just finished a compile of stoneyridge and TF2 was all "game not available, go away."

    Screw you, Steam.

    I was excited about the backpack until I saw it wasn't a misc but a secondary. It's not even good for huntsman so I guess I won't worry about not having an extra jar of pee around.

    Well, since everyone else uploads videos, I might as well figure out how to do it...

    Yes, I know it's not that entertaining, but I'm just figuring out how to make replays, so shut your face mouth.

    Of course Crash posts about the update, but doesn't actually restart the server when I'm not around.
