Team Fortress 2 developer Valve has dropped the update-bomb today, with a brand new patch that integrates the studio’s new “Steampipe” content delivery method, among other things.
Kotaku reports that Steampipe will result in faster downloads and loading times, as well as making the game and mods player nicer together.
It’s a whopping update though, and Valve asked players to be patient over on its blog, “It might look like it’s hung. But it’s not. Don’t interrupt it, just please be patient and let it think.”
You can check out Steam’s full Steampipe FAQ here to see how it all works. Steampipe also applies to Counter-Strike: Source, Day of Defeat: Source, and Half-life 2: Deathmatch.
Let us know if you try it out.
