Welcome to TWO New Themes!

"This year has been a wild ride hasn't it? But screw it, let's make the rest of the year even bigger!" - That's the topic I brought up to the Mann Co. employees during our latest meeting. One of them suggested to develop two special events at the same time. And you know what happened to him? Yeah, obviously he got fired, ha-ha. I am the boss here, and I make the decisions. Not him. It's me.

Anyway, after thinking for a while, I had a revelation! Let's announce two special themes at the same time, so we can develop two events at the same time! That sounds amazing and totally original! Yeah, I love it.

So here we are: introducing two upcoming themes that will be featured in the next major events by Creators.TF till the end of this year: Halloween and Robots. I'm mainly making this announcement to make some noise to help fill our workshop with content. So if you're excited about these upcoming themes, like me, go make stuff for the workshop. Oh, and in case if you already have content in your Steam Workshop that fits one of those themes, your items get bonus points by automatically being eligible to be included in these events! Sounds awesome, doesn't it? Then submit your stuff to Creators.TF.

Now some guidelines: for the Halloween-themed events, we are waiting for, obviously, Halloween-themed cosmetics, taunts, weapons. For the Robotic event however, we mainly need content that resembles or is similar to content previously introduced in «Robotic Boogaloo Update»: robotic cosmetics, taunts, weapons, anything!

And also there was a message from Creators.TF team that they really wanted me to announce. Uh, what does it says... "We... need... more...". Yetis? Guns? Pants? Oh, wait, no. "We need more people!", that's what it says. Creators.TF is currently looking for a few more team members to help create these upcoming events, so if you're excited to help - apply to the team. Applications will be closed whenever they get enough people, so don't delay!

Team Fabulous 2 Reanimated

The original Team Fabulous 2 came out almost a decade ago, yet it has become, and still is, the most iconic and memorable Team Fortress 2 animation to this day. The creator of this video passed away due to leukemia in 2015, but his legacy will be remembered for many years.

Our friends at Team Fabulous 2 Reanimated have taken the initiative to bring the Team Fortress 2 community together to reanimate the video to honor kitty0706 and his inspirational legacy! Featuring over 200 creators, artists and animators, the final fully reanimated video is finally live on YouTube.

Donations can be made to the Team Fabulous 2 Reanimated Charity to help fight against leukemia. The charity will be online until August 6th, 2020!

Last but not least, as a little collaboration with the TF2R team, we have decided to release a small, yet memorable, gift for everyone who wants to celebrate the release and to tribute our beloved content creator. A new special cosmetic has been added to our store that can be purchased right now! We definitely recommend watching this video, so click the button above and we'll see you there!

Co-operative Contracts are now live on all Creators.TF servers!
This means that now, if you and your friend have the same contract activated, are playing on the same server, and are on the same team, you can now both help each other to complete a specific contract.

Here is how this system works, in detail:
  • Be sure you have your friend added on Steam.
  • Be sure either you or your friend have Steam's friend list set to public.
  • Be sure you both have the same contract activated.
  • Be sure to be in the same server.
  • Be sure to be in the same team.
  • After meeting all these requirements, you both will now be sharing/completing the same contract.
    P.S.: At the contract's completion, both parties will be able to get each individual reward to their respective accounts.

    If you find a bug related to this feature, feel free to either email us on support@creators.tf, sending a ticket over support.creators.tf or simply leaving a message on the #feedback channel in our official Discord server.

    As of today, the new 3D loadout and inventory system are both out of beta! Huge thanks to everyone who helped us during the beta reporting bugs and giving feedbacks, it was really important to the development of all of this.

    3D loadout preview: It's now easier for you to preview how your cosmetic will look on your chosen character in-game. Rotate, zoom or move, you can now choose the best angle to see how the nice shiny hat will look on you.

    Inventory: No more long scroll downs to see your entire catalog of items, because we now have pages! Specifically, 25 items per page. And also, a "Search" system was added so, if you have a load of items or just wanna find a specific one, you can easily filter what you wanna see -- Yes, you can search for a specific class' name and it will return all the current items of said class in your inventory.

    Feel like we missed something? Feel free to either email us on support@creators.tf, sending a ticket over support.creators.tf or simply leaving a message on the #feedback channel in our official Discord server.

    After some anticipation and "leaks", the Creators.TF Workshop is now available in beta!

    This also marks the reopening of our submission system, so if you are a map, cosmetic or weapon creator, you must now submit your item through our new custom Workshop. This helps us make sure that what you submit is, well, yours and yours only, and not someone else's work.
    This new system also includes an user rating system, so you, the player, can vote on your favorite items to tell us which one you would like to see in our future events!

    You probably will see some unfinished stuff there, and that's expected, as this system is in beta, like the inventory and loadout system.

    If you want to submit a bug report/feedback/valuable idea for this, you can email us on support@creators.tf, send us a ticket through support.creators.tf or simply by sending a message on the #feedback channel on our official Discord server.

    After much, much feedback about our map rotation (1k+ votes!), we are here to shake up our rotation and introduce new stuff!
    Starting from the beginning, we are disabling the Hazardous Environments campaign, it was a long run, it's time to say goodbye.
    Based on votes, we're removing Steel, Granary and Dustbowl from the rotation and introducing the top voted maps of each mode, along with some pro/summer variants. The results are 7 new official maps: Mercenary Park, Mossrock, Sunshine, Lakeside, Suijin and Borneo. Along with 6 community-made recreations of official maps: Harvest Alpine, Product, Badwater Pro, Barnblitz Pro, Powerhouse Fix and Summercoast.
    As usual, contracts for these maps are available to complete right now on our ConTracker!

    We are also introducing some new features. The following commands are available to be typed in the in-game chat to allow for easier direct access to our features:

  • !l (that's an L) - Opens your current class loadout.
  • !w - Opens the website's main page.
  • !s - Opens the servers page.
  • !c - Opens your ConTracker.
  • !i - Opens your Inventory.
  • !p - Opens your Creators.TF profile.

  • In order for these commands to work, you must have HTML MOTDs enabled by making sure cl_disablehtmlmotd 0 is set in your console (~).
    Along with all of that, we are introducing some quality-of-life updates to the gameplay, based on "TF2 comp fixes" by twiikuu. All of them are carefully listed on the patch notes.

    As always, if you have any feedback, suggestions or anything else you want to make us aware of, feel free to access our brand new support page support.creators.tf. You may create a ticket there and a team member will get back with you. Emails sent to support@creators.tf are still supported.

    Thank you for keeping up with us during this situation.

    Hi everyone. Due to the recent source code leak, we are shutting our servers down for the foreseeable future. This is because of the uncertainty surrounding security to our infrastructure as well as your computer. We will monitor the situation and keep you updated.
