No official information right now but it seems text idling has stopped dropping items making it ineffective for farming items.

Was fun while it lasted.

    I can't believe it took them this long, especially with an actual economy on the line.

    And a workaround is found.
    It's the -textmode switch , and possibly +sv_lan 1

    I've just tried running with +sv_lan 0, and without textmode, and I've got a drop without going past the welcome screen

    EDIT: +sv_lan 0 means that your server will be accessible over the internet. If you don't already, you should use a password on the server to stop strangers joining by including

    +sv_password yourpasswordhere

    To be on the safe side I also used

    +rcon_password anotherpassword

    to protect the server from being manipulated remotely by strangers
