“Thank you TF2. You let me keep my house this year, and helped my son with his lead poisoning.”
Author of pl_swiftwater here. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the TF2 community. 2016 was a hard year. In March my son tested high for lead levels. The health department determined my house could double as an x-ray blanket. Between medical bills and the cost of lead remediation, my wife and I were looking at some very difficult and heartbreaking decisions. It felt like the world was coming down on us hard.
And then Swiftwater became official.
Between Valve and the Community Stamp contributions, I was able to comply with all the health department criteria to make my house safe. Since, my son’s lead levels have been steadily going down. I can keep my family in my house, and my son isn’t likely to suffer long term effects from the lead. I can sleep at night knowing I didn’t mess up the life of my son. You guys helped that.
Thank you to all who supported my map from the early days. Thank you to all who lobbied Valve to get swiftwater official. Thank you to all who purchased a stamp. Thank you, most of all, to everyone who played Swiftwater.
Swiftwater’s popularity rose since being ran in UGC Highlander years ago before finally being added as an official TF2 map in the Meet Your Match update. We are very happy to hear that Schwa and his family are doing better, and we wish them all the best.

Well, here’s another one from the sudden burst of inspiration thats now…a something. I don’t know what it is and I’m scared to go into r/tf2 to see what its mutated into, but here it is. ctf_2fort, possibly the most iconic map in TF2′s inventory (despite how crappy it is).

oh yeah, I’m probably not going to upload a new one tomorrow. these take ungodly amounts of time (this one took circa 12 hours) and I still have things to do.
And just like that most of the ships are in place in their tents, speeding bullet, helmet party, heavy/medic, Spy's by himself and I guess Demo is bunking with pyro.
friendly reminder again that this comic will not have any romance (but feel free to send asks about all the ships you want , as long as they’re related with the story or the comic ,pls) :) dear nonnie you got two pair wrongly. here’s a stupid map of the tents , cuz i’m original (heh.) and i like to do maps. yey…
Finished my entry for TF2Maps.net’s current Intel/Spawn Room detail entry - welcome campers, to Camp Redmond!
With nearly 200mb of custom assets made for the revamped theme, it’s surely a labor of love, with over a dozen easter eggs scattered around the campground, along with a fine-print backstory to the locale!
If you wanna check it out in-game, I highly recommend checking out all entries alongside it in the contest over on TF2Maps.net! There’s a lot of good work there!
