Written by Unknown and translated by Unknown on 18.05.2012 Time 12:31

We have May 18th, 2012 - logbook TFPortal. Last night, Valve did it once again: Time for updates, though no innovations included.

The major points of the update: 4new items, including 3 Promo-Items for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (buy on Amazon) and several new Strange Parts, which eternalize the following data on your weapons:

  • Demomen Killed
  • Soldiers Killed
  • Domination Kills
  • Revenge Kills
  • Critical Kills
  • Kills While Explosive Jumping

  • Items Toggle View

    • Cross-Comm Express

      This full spectrum battle monocle receives signals from a satellite at light speed, which means you may have to slow down a little so they can catch up to you.

    • Cross-Comm Crash Helmet

      This purely cosmetic battlefield awareness accessory will fool everyone from the lowliest private to the mayor of the army into thinking you're probably in the army too.

    • Doublecross-Comm

      This battlefield awareness bandanna is stitched with nanofibers that can download battlefields from Wikipedia straight to your face, so you will never not be aware of them.

    • Strange Part: Critical Kills

      Adding this Strange Part to a Strange-quality weapon of your choice will enable it to track the number of enemies you kill with critical hits from that weapon.

    • Strange Part: Soldiers Killed

      Adding this Strange Part to a Strange-quality weapon will enable it to track the number of Soldiers you kill with that weapon.

    • Strange Part: Kills While Explosive Jumping

      Adding this Strange Part to a Strange-quality weapon of your choice will enable it to track the number of enemies you kill with that weapon while airborne from a rocket/stickyjump.

    • Strange Part: Revenge Kills

      Adding this Strange Part to a Strange-quality weapon of your choice will enable it to track the number of enemies dominating you kill with that weapon.

    • Strange Part: Domination Kills

      Adding this Strange Part to a Strange-quality weapon of your choice will enable it to track the number of enemies you dominate by killing them with that weapon.

    • Strange Part: Demomen Killed

      Adding this Strange Part to a Strange-quality weapon will enable it to track the number of Demomen you kill with that weapon.

The fourth item inh the bundle is made for the Spy. In fact, it is called Sneaky Spats of Sneaking, a Misc-Item for the feet. Some advice concerning the colour: you should wear them in light colours, because they are harder to recognize in next to the rather dark shoes of the spy.

    • Sneaky Spats of Sneaking

      Sure, you're in the market for shoes to help you lurk in the shadows. But once you slip on these natty calf leather spatterdashes, you'll want EVERYONE to check you out.

Besides, some minor problems with the Manmelter and the Frying Pan have been fixed (though only cosmetical optimization). You find the full changelog below:

Source Engine Changes (TF2, DoD:S, HL2:DM)

  • Fatal engine errors are now written to the server log file
  • Added sv_lowedict_threshold and sv_lowedict_action which allow the engine to take action before running out of free edicts
    • Possible values for sv_lowedict_action are: 0 - no action, 1 - warn to log file, 2 - attempt to restart the game, if applicable, 3 - restart the map, 4 - go to the next map in the map cycle

Team Fortress 2

  • Added The Sneaky Spats of Sneaking
  • Added new promotional items
  • Added koth_badlands to eligible quickplay maps
