Patch Notes

Via the Steam store and HLDS:

Valve- Added the Summer 2021 Cosmetic Case
- Contains 18 new community-contributed items
- Adds 6 new community-created Unusual effects
- Numerous security and stability improvements
- Added a cooldown before a player can create a vote when they join a match already in-progress
- sv_vote_late_join_time controls the grace period after the match starts before the cooldown is applied: default 90 secs
- sv_vote_late_join_cooldown controls the length of the cooldown: default 5 min
- Kick votes will end early and automatically pass if the vote target leaves the match during the vote
- Added a ConVar to control players changing their name during a match
- tf_allow_player_name_change: default is 1
- Matchmaking servers will set this to 0
- Updated the player list in the vote-kick dialog to show the time each player has been connected to the server
- Removed the disconnect reason from the message when players leave the server
- Updated the Mann vs. Machine "inspect" command to only work for players in your party or in your Friends list
- Moved materials for the community particle effects into the Effects/workshop sub-folder to distinguish them from Valve materials
- Updated/Added some tournament medals
- Updated the localization files
- Updated cp_snakewater_final1
- Fixed clipping throughout map
- Fixed explosion splash being caught by objects throughout map
- Made movement smoother throughout map
- Reworked some problematic areas like the kitchen
- Minor visual enhancements throughout the map
- Updated cp_process
- Fixed incorrect skin for the Red radio tower

Rumor has it:

- /u/Serird has put together a listing of the contents of the Summer 2021 Cosmetic Case (and Unusual effects), complete with Steam Workshop links to pass some applause on to item/effect creators that made it in the case

- Community server operators have noticed that a 64 MB cap on custom downloadable content has been implemented, including to maps served through FastDL. While it's possible this may be part of the "numerous security and stability improvements", it appears that it may not be entirely intentional as Eric Smith has sent a follow-up message to the HLDS list stating that Valve is "looking into the reports" of clients being unable to download larger maps
- This has been fixed in update #2

- Because there are now multiple ways you could be prevented from calling a vote to kick, strings will no longer be specific as to the cause (previously, it would've been only for having called another vote recently)

- The new cluster has been up for a couple of months already, but seeing as it only just now got its string it's worth mentioning anyway: the EU West server cluster (as it's known in Dota 2 and CS:GO) has been relocated from Luxembourg to Frankfurt, Germany

- For a complete listing of today's tournament medal additions and updates, please click on https://www.teamfortress.tv/post/1040146/tf2-update-for-6-22-21 due to character limit reasons

- This update's arrival brings an end to another record-shattering drought that lasted just a few days short of 4 months, or more specifically, 112 days without an update, with the last one having occurred on 3/2/21
- This update is just the 3rd to happen so far in 2021, which itself is almost halfway done. By this point of the year last year, the game had 5 updates by the same day of the 2020 calendar year (which became 6 a couple of days later on 6/24/20)
- The previous all-time record drought was a stretch of 80 days in a similar timeframe last year, from 1/18/20 to 4/7/20 (4/8/20 UTC)
- Before that, the now 3rd all-time longest drought was a stretch of 72 days from 5/14/19 to 7/25/19 (7/26/19 UTC)

- Lots of localization file changes, as well as item schema changes can all be viewed here
- And in case you forgot with it having been so long since the last update, translations are made possible in part by the efforts of Translators Like You - Thank You

- Size is ~55 MB

Actually this update is pretty good, I like the small but good QoL changes to improve our chances against cheaters.

not sure what the thought process on the inspect change was, if anything its going to make it seem more toxic because youll have dudes grilling low tours instead of just being able to suggest a change from the get go.

(and retards will still be retards, so its not like that part of the equation is going to be reduced)

MILKy_this update is kinda crazy but why do we need 6 new unusual effects again

I mean, sorry for EU but they usually drop on late evening/nights for NA which is also disruptive, so hard not to get in the way of either region. Better than on weekends, in the very least. We know what that accomplished... Being a drought of 112 days without an update it's not hard to check for a period where a league is not running, but that's beneath Valve, right?

Regarding the effects, hell yeah! Can't wait to get my hands on those new pog light particles on top of those food hats, drippy af! /s

Looks like I'm gonna have to pause my progress on Shield Hero; I can't pass up a TF2 update!

Anyway the addition of vote call cooldowns are double-edged swords; it will prevent casual bots from being able to kick players upon immediate connection, and reduce the motivation to make more casual bots, but it will also interfere with the ability for players to kick bad players within 5 minutes. This is probably only going to be a problem in casual though, since community servers will likely disable vote cooldowns.

Does this happen to anyone else or is it on my end? Game restart and different demo didn't help.

Edit: Removed custom folder to make sure it wasn't an issue with a vpk or plugin, made it look even worse as I could now see map entities for some reason without any console commands.

2nd Edit:
Downloads for the old Snakewater and Process versions if anyone needs them: https://mega.nz/file/ky51CCpb#m9qhlMHdU-cWI1Pg5WKPWz7O_IavlwWoAxfp6q7kfKs

Comparing the two versions the size of the map increased by a lot, triple the original size it seems: https://i.imgur.com/Il9qgz6.png
