Oh! Am I the sneaky guy?

Let us speak no more of pube spies.

Hate when a pube spy gets stuck on the bar of soap.

Vet spies NEVER let that happen to them

Microphones work better when plugged into the mic jack as opposed to the headphone jack.

Genuine Quality items in the Steam Market? It's getting crazy now! :p

Also Strange Festive weapons on the Market... (for ridiculously stupid amounts of money)
Now, it kind of makes it easier to quit the game, as you can monetize your exit.
Just saying.

Yeah, makes me wish I didn't trade away my Strange Festive Wrench a few months back.

Still aways to go till all the items get out there though. Plent of valuable unique quality items still waiting in the wings.

I feel so sad that I know longer know what all the items are now. There's just so many.

I keep running into their weird bug in TF2 where the video crashes to desktop but the game keeps going in the background. I can still hear people talking over VOIP and the sound effects are going, but the video is dead. I can even interact with the console and exit the game via console, but my video card displays my desktop instead.

Any idea what would cause this? I have just swapped out my graphics card and power supply, but it is probably not that. I am wondering if it is the CPU or the RAM.

Oh my, was looking through my files on Dropbox and found a file from... Well November 1st. I played the level and I found that the only issue is, it doesn't work with bots. But if anyone wants to take a gander around it and give some suggestions I'll gladly accept them and put them to use. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/51341885/pl_nightwater_b1.zip

I get that sometimes, never found a resolution.

Good times tonight! All-talk is good fun!

"tboonsbehindus!tboonsbehindus!tboonsbehindus!" - the best!

Does your computer run hot? Mine just crashed for a while and refused to boot for a few minutes. It seems to be working fine now which makes me think it was heat. Or maybe there's a blown capacitor somewhere that just acts really strange...

Wow, we were just talking about Wolfen tonight on the server.
We were wondering how interesting a PLR version of 2fort would be. And then everyone laughed

Hey Wolfen, we had a request tonight for a plr_2fort map. Could you start working on that? Great, thanks.

=)

Edit: Phiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiish!

Hey I got that sh*t trademarked and will personally contact Gaben. You won't be laughing when I'm swimming in a vault full of money like Scrooge McDuck.

No not particularly.

I miss playing a few custom maps like pl_cashworks and pl_swiftwater_ugc since we don't play on the private much anymore. Would would you guys think about me adding a community maps section on the ultimate map chooser menu and including a few good ones? If the pubbies have them when we switch great, if they don't they either leave or download it. I was pleasently surprised when we had the Christmas badwater map on the server most pubbies stayed/downloaded and played with us when it switched.

I wouldn't want to put a sh*tload of community maps just a few good ones.

Ukick is like besties with Gaben, so he probably already stole your idea. Just sayin'.

I'd be fine with custom maps. A lot of servers have them and the more experienced pubbies will as well. Could help to weed out the newbies who play defensive scout for three rounds and get 3 points.

Thumbs up to some good custom maps

No, ukick is besties with Robin Walker. I'm higher up the food chain with the Gabenator him self.

Anyone got some good custom map ideas besides the ones I mentioned earlier?

Pretty sure the word 'good' was used in the request.

What was that payload map that had the pit at the final point? It had the wood two-level house on the left coming out of Blue's initial spawn, the tracks led through a tunnel and across two bridges? Damme I cannot remember the name of it but I always liked that map.

Semi-related to last night. My four-year old and Gaben share something in common:

Desert Fortress!

Also, here's a link for dimmers server that shows all the customs on the private: http://gwj.skulljackpot.com/maps/

We play a ton of PL these days, and I love Swiftwater, so I'd love to see it included. I'd suggest Stag but I'm afraid of being stoned to death by the rest of the crew here -- it's one of the few non-stock 5-point maps that I really enjoy, though. A good variety of maps is definitely important for our group given that we don't tend to play KOTH, CTF, or arena during primetime.

On the subject of UMC: Can we get a limitation like "max_players: 12" on Degroot? It seems to be coming up in the vote list too often relative to the number of times we want to play it in primetime.

EDIT: The TN payload rotation server (68.68.32.218:27015) also has a nice selection of custom PL maps but I can't for the life of me remember the names of any except Beerbowl.

HE'S A JERK! THROW HIM TO THE RABID PACK OF PUBBIES!

Spoiler:

Agree with you on Stag 100%

I like Stag on occasion. I think we played it too many times back in the day and I got burned out on it for a while. Kind of like Freight, which I have rediscovered a like for since we went quite a while not playing it.

DesertFortress though, bleah.

I also enjoy Stag, but I like Freight way better.
I refuse to play any version of DesertFortress that doesn't have Boots Randolph playing Yakety Sax in the background.
