Changed tickrate at launch to 66. For some reason TF2 doesn't fully support 100 tick and it only wastes system resources on Egg.

Changed the name of the server.

rtv and nominate have been added

added arena maps to mapcycle list

removed instance of arena map change changing the mapcycle to only arena maps.

Spy/Sniper Update applied to server

Here is the list:

* Added new map, Pipeline. Pipeline is the first map in a new game mode named payload race, which uses two carts in each map instead of only one like traditional payload maps
* Added new arena map Sawmill
* Added new arena map Nucleus
* Added new community payload map Hoodoo
* Updated Dustbowl to fix not being able to jump into the window in the first building of the second stage

Sniper Changes
* Added new sniper rifle replacement, The Huntsman. Instead of a sniper rifle, you have a bow that allows you to move around faster while firing, and fire more quickly than the sniper rifle. Works better at medium range than the standard rifle
* Added new SMG replacement, Jarate. If thrown on an enemy they will take more damage for short period of time. Also extinguishes flames on yourself or allies
* Added new SMG replacement, The Razorback. Will protect you against a single spy backstab, and stun the spy for a short period of time. Comes with a 15% move speed penalty for the wearer
* Standard sniper rifle now shoots through friendly players
* Added 54 new Sniper voice lines
* Added 35 new Sniper achievements

* Added new revolver replacement, The Ambassador. First shot is very accurate and will cause a critical hit if it hits an enemy's head. Accuracy is poor for a period after that
* Added new watch replacement, the Dead Ringer. When armed, you will appear in all ways to die to the first damage you take from an enemy. You'll be cloaked for 8 second after taking this damage. Upon de-cloaking you'll make a loud, distinct sound
* Added new watch replacement, the Cloak and Dagger. Your cloak meter is only depleted when you move, so you can stay invisible indefinitely if you're standing still
* Spy name tags now show up properly when disguised as their own team
* Fixed a bug that would cause spectators to see disguise weapons incorrectly
* Fixed a bug where enemy spies disguised as friendly spies would have cigarettes that didn't burn
* Fixed a bug where overhealing disguised spies would show the wrong overhealing amount to the medic
* Made it more obvious on first person view model when your motion cloak is out of juice and you are partially visible
* Also made it more obvious on first person view model when you're bumped while cloaked
* Improved the way your disguise weapon is determined to make it clearer and fix a couple of rare issues
* Spies disguised as enemy spies now get a random mask to help complete the disguise, and their target id will be set appropriately
* Spies disguised as medics now have an Ubercharge: line in their disguise target info
* Spies outward facing "disguise health" now matches their disguise target when they first apply the disguise
* Spies can now pick up health kits for their "disguise health", even when uninjured
* Disguise UI doesn't show up in minimum UI mode (hud_minmode)
* Spies that disguise as a player using an unlockable now show that unlockable in hand
* Spies can now use enemy teleporters
* Added 70 new Spy voice lines
* Added 34 new Spy achievements

Scoreboard changes
* Dominations no longer get wiped when teams switch sides
* Dead players draw slightly darker in scoreboard
* Converted class labels to class icons
* All players now display the total number of people they are dominating

* You now find new and old items as you play, instead of through achievements
* Fixed a bug that would cause the scout's ball to regenerate at inappropriate times
* Demomen can now detonate their stickies while taunting
* Flamethrower's air burst now extinguishes fire on friendly targets
* Grenades and rockets deflected by a pyro under the effects of Kritzkrieg will now be criticals
* The Heavy and Sniper now have new custom death animations
* Fixed payload HUD not updating properly if you join in the middle of a match and the cart isn't moving
* Engineer's dispensers now give 20%, 30%, or 40% of player's max_ammo (for each ammo type) on each use, based on the level of the dispenser
* Added -sillygibs commandline parameter which will allow the non-violent gibs to be enabled
* Added a new taunt for the Kritzkrieg, which also heals for 10 points
* Improved the deathcam camera handling used when a player plays a custom death animation
* Added missing chalkboard and serverbrowser images for community maps shipped in previous updates
* Removed "Final" from map names in the serverbrowser quick list

* Added "sv_allow_voice_from_file" convar, which defaults to 1. When set to 0, it'll prevent clients from using the "voice_inputfromfile" feature to broadcast wav files over voice
* Enabled "sv_allow_wait_command" convar, which defaults to 1. When set to 0, it'll prevent clients from using the "wait" command

Added lots of new hats

Additions / Changes
Added "Auto Reload" option to the multiplayer advanced options
Clip-based weapons that reload a full clip at a time can now have their reloads aborted by firing
Pistol now fires at a fixed rate, not based on the speed at which you press the firing button
Added a color blind option to add a Jarate icon above enemies who are busy accepting a terrifying existence where they have no dignity
Significantly reduced the amount of network traffic being sent
Capturing the flag in a CTF game mode gives the entire capturing team 10 seconds of critboost
Sappers attached to a teleporter automatically place another Sapper on the other end of the teleporter, if it exists
Engineers wrenching a teleporter will repair the other end as well, and remove Sappers from both if they exist
Disguised Spies no longer trigger On-Hit effects (like the Blutsauger's heal)
Removed self-inflicted minicrits. Fixes Jarate'd Soldiers/Demomen having ineffective rocket/grenade jumps
Added an item panel to the spectator cam that shows non-standard items being carried by the player you're spectating

The enemy knockback now only works in close range and behaves more like the Pyro's air blast

The self-knockback has also changed to respect the firer's view angle. Looking up while shooting will no longer propel the enemy upwards

Community requests
Added a HUD element for hybrid CTF & CP maps
Supports 1 or 2 flags, and any number of CPs
Mapmakers need to place a "tf_logic_hybrid_ctf_cp" entity in their map to enable it
Added custom kill server log text "train" and "saw" for deaths caused by these environmental hazards
Format: "%s<%i><%s><%s>" committed suicide with "world" (customkill "%s") (attacker_position "%d %d %d")
Added new "medic_death" event for server logs
Format: "%s<%i><%s><%s>" triggered "medic_death" against "%s<%i><%s><%s>" (healing "%d") (ubercharge "%s")
healing is the amount the Medic healed in that life
ubercharge (1/0) is whether they died with a full charge
Added "func_respawnflag" trigger entity. It will remove & return the flag if a flag carrier touches it, or if the flag falls into it

Lol, I remember when we posted these updates. Clearly not worth it anymore since updates are weekly.

Only Bod plays this game anyway ;)

It's not like I have 45 farmers or anything....
