Product Update - Valve
An update to DETOUR has been released. The update will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:


- 28 Achievements have been added to DETOUR!
- Truck Themes added! You can now stylize your trucks! Themes unlock when you acquire certain achievements. You can change your truck theme in the multiplayer lobby.
- GAME MECHANIC CHANGE: Building on a recently destroyed tile will now have a longer cooldown for the player who previously owned it. (4 second cooldown instead of 2 for every one else)
- Symmetry modes in the map editor are now correctly labeled
- Some memory usage has been decreased, we are no longer loading certain images in the background

- Lobby ready signal should not longer be out of sync with clients and host
- Turrets now properly lock out at the max limit of 3

- Text chat dropshadow removed, no longer double stacked. Text chat should look much cleaner now.

- Party leader can no longer be changed in lobbies via menu option. Party leader only auto-switches to another player when host leaves the lobby.
- Character heads on Challenge screen are no longer too high on some resolutions.
- Merger mode has been removed until it functions as intended.

- Police and Nail popped-tire announcements no longer claim you are the victim of the attack when you are not.
- Air turrets will no longer shoot down bombs of players on the same team.
