    @Cbast: That looks pretty cool! I would definately increase the size of the metre though, its just way too small at the moment.

    Like that ? By the way, is there a way to remove the attribute which make the cloak meter in "Fullbright". I mean, I want it to be affected by ambiant lighting.

    Thanks. (I'm also interested in the question of Fusedgore)

    Still working on the texture, but I'd like to know what you guys think. I was thinking on trying to match the claws, or maybe would be better on the soldier with a different approach?

    @Swizzle Can't wait to see it implemented, great work as usual.

    @JoseConseco, Dr.cube really neat hats, great job.

    As much as I like that watch, Cbast, you're making it a bit difficult to use in game.

    You're right... I have to find something to make a visible cloak meter without hiding the rest of the watch.
  • Dr.cube
    I really like that watch, you should make the metre even bigger though. Make it out line the edge of the glass. Right now it feels like it gets in the way of being able to see all the cool bits that are inside.

    alrighty then!

    I have the model in game with textures and all that (Sniper Rifle)!

    The only two problems are:

    a) the model is way too shiny

    b)the model is positioned incorrectly (he is holding the barrel with his right hand so yeah)

    The Rifle itself is ideally proportioned but I can't move the rifle in any direction to fix this problem as it remains the same each time.

    I attached the rifle to the Sydney Sleepers weapon bone but it won't work and the mdl compiler keeps telling me that the model has no bones despite having precisely one which may be a big cause of problem b.

    @The Scrub Are you changing the position of the model around in object mode? If so you need to make sure to apply the transformations (Ctrl+A, Blender 2.55) to validate the changes. You can see the current position pressing N at the 3d view.

    nope that's not it... I've checked because I honestly had no idea that existed but no I don't think that's it :(

    Hey all anyone know how long it usualy takes valve if your items is going to get in to get back to you ,or if your image /model isnt going to get in .

    You don't get any e-mail from Valve ever unless they need your payment info if your item is going on the Mann Co. Store. Kind of strange that they never e-mail people to tell them their items are going in the game, but it makes sense to not e-mail everyone who isn't going in the game.

    Hello everyone !

    So i was looking at your cool stuff, and i was like : Hey, why don't i try too ?

    So, after looking at some tutorials, learning tu use blender, and after 3 hours of work, i present you my engie shotgun. Well, the basic shape :p
    C60KU.jpg

    So, i stiil need to go the fore end, the trigger, the handle, and a ton of details. So, what do you think of my first model ever ?

    Okay, one question: You do know this is probably going to be super buggy, due to the way Source handles players on moving objects in multiplayer, right?

    So, after a break I decided to start again with a hat I made but didn't quite like... it's supposed to be one of those Asian rice hats, ideally called the "Asian Mercenary".

    problem #1. I think it looks more like a lamp :D!
    problem #2. I don't quite like the colors, and the texture looks too clean
    problem #3. the geometry clips when carrying the rocket launcher :(

    so I was thinking of whether I should make it higher or narrower or both? or throw away the idea and start with another?

    You can see the clipping in this one :(

    The ronin hat (not sure of the correct name) usually has a slot or some holes in it so the wearer can see out. You can actually see them on your reference if you look closely.
    komuso85.jpg

    I think you haven't quite captured the proportions quite right. I can see you've scaled it down a little so it doesn't hide his entire head, which is probably a good idea, but the shape itself could use a little tweaking.

    I'd suggest going with a colour scheme that features the natural fibre colour predominantly. What you've got currently looks like a giant knitted hat which isn't really ideal. You could add a simple coloured band somewhere on the hat to denote team colour.

    Mann Co makes weapons, so I wouldn't think it would fit on that. Maybe go with the Engineer class icon, or try to come up with something else.

    looks like I'll need Milkshape 3D for all my models because now it works
    I downloaded MS3D onto an old laptop with a faulty battery that turns off every time I unplug it (the craptop) and now I have another 30 days to work with it

    there's still some clipping and it shines as if it was permanently wet but at least it works

    Ah man, I wanted to make bear too, I guess I will go with panda then... Looks ok man, but maybe moving whole hat up the head like here:

    dr. cube - cool chicken. Maybe use more gray color instead of pure white. I mean there is really no 100% white color in tf2, most of stuff have creamy color (eg skull of deer on one of your ingame screens)
  • Sharkisss
    I dont know. Just the emblem on it does not fit it. Maybe it needs a normal map ?

    @JZeeba, might just be me but when I think of an Asian conical hat, I usually think of one of these: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/07/Rice_02.jpg a smaller one might solve your clipping issues... but anyways looking at jackablade's reference, the model could do with being more frayed on the edges, just a little fraying here and there and an uneven top. I wouldn't use the colors as that messes with the identification as straw.

    @sharkiss - I'd stray away from either one, maybe just use a simple pattern
  • Sharkisss
    So you suggest just to leave it like this ?

    JZeeba Looks really fun \o/ I want one!

    I've succefully made my animation and exported it in Source (The anim work in HLMV). I worked on the c_model. Now, I want to make the animation work in the viewmodel.

    As far as I understood, I have to export my animation with the "Idle" animation of the spys arms. But I have no idea how to do that.

    I mean, I can't manage to import source animation into Maya. (The bones are not imported either). So, can I overide this problem by qc file or make a fusion between my animation and Idle ?

    Thank.
  • Aluca
    @Sharkisss: Maybe you could add extrusions at the top and bottom to break the shape.

    I see your point and I'll try once I finish the texture, thanks for the feedback.

    This is probably my favorite one I've made so far.

    Just stuck a basic texture on it so I still need to do a proper one . This will also be my 1st go at jigglebones.

    It looks like the behemoth mascot http://gamingallthetime.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/behemoth1.jpg but still a pretty good hat :)

    Here's an update on my cloche hat with ambient occlusion applied, now that I actually know how to do it and what it is. I just want to make sure the material looks okay before I move on with it and add the flower. I want the hat to look like it's made of the same material Madame Dixie is made of, and the flower, which will be on the side of the hat, will be the same flower on the pyro's purse.

    Jzeeba,

    with regards to scaling it down a little so it doesn't hide his entire head.....

    i don't think you should do that. I think the hat looks nicely intimidating in its actual large size in terms of engulfing the entire head.

    There was an appearance of a very cool villian in the movie, "Big Trouble in Little China" with Kurt Russel, where the guy had a hat like that and it totally covered the entire head.

    I would post a pic, but i'm at work...

    Ah of course. I was trying to think yesterday of which western movie it was that I'd seen people wearing them. I think that first tiny thumbnail image you've got there might actually be the Three Storms from Big Trouble in Little China.

    I thought about life losing to feed the cloak. I mean, you've 100% all damage resistance. But you lose 5hp per second cloaked. You have 25 second of invisibility before dying.
    A bit like a cursed watch.

    But if someone have a better idea around this theme I'll be glad to hear it \o/
  • RedSheep
    I've been meaning to ask this, but how high poly is that watch? It's very nice looking but I can't help but feel that all the inner workings make it a very high in polycount.

    lol

    no, that sucks (excuse the irony)

    that doesn't sound like fun. You're suggesting making the spy even weaker and even more limited by sapping his very limited life gauge.

    what i suggest is - when feeding the watch - the watch takes half your life guage and gives you a second cloak guage ontop of the first one. For the price of half of your limited life, you get twice as much cloak. Sounds like a fair trade.

    I've made some changes to the geometry, it still covers his head, but it's a bit narrow in the base... I've tried to make some fraying on the edges but it needs the texture to see if that would be enough.

    I knew I had seen a hat like that in a movie!! I just didn't remember which one was it, thanks!!, also thanks to @Jackablade for pointing that out :)

    It probably won't clip that much now, and the top doesn't look like a light bulb. I'm not too convinced of the holes in the hat right now, probably they should be more and smaller, but that would increase the polycount a lot. Right now it's about 850 tris.

    About that watch's function : Would it be overpowered if while active, it made you able to pass through the other team's members while disguised as one of them (but you're unable to go invisible with it)? Just trying to think of something besides just the same ol invisibility thing...

    Or maybe something as simple as being fireproof while active, fire won't reveal you're a spy while disguised, but they'd still be able to spot you from your health depleting from the watch.

    No, that sucks. (excuse the irony.....again)

    You do have a point when you say everyone keeps making items that just cause/effect the same things. It gets boring.
    But in this case, there's nothing wrong with it being the same ol invisibility thing. I actually think this item would actually be extremely cool if it actually did grant the user twice as much cloak in exchange of half the user's life guage (or renews the user's cloak - whichever comes first).

    I often do find myself short on cloak whilst in the middle of a very dangerous position - right in the middle of enemy's territory and in dire need of more cloak...would be awesome if i had the choice of trading my life guage for a little more cloak just to get away of a very dangerous position.

  • mistersneak
    May I suggest an alternative design for the bloody watch?
    -15% Max HP
    -15% movement speed while cloaked
    If spy is bleeding, removes "bleed" effect when activated and, grants 5 seconds of "free" cloaking. (No effect if already cloaked when bleed effect starts)
    +25% cloak recharge after successful backstab
  • mistersneak
    I'll comment additionally that I do like the idea of using your life gauge as an additional cloak meter, but it would need an additional drawback. If it operates exactly as the regular cloak, plus you have the option to run it into your health bar, then it's juts better.
    If you prefer that design, perhaps it could have a simple drawback like not allowing metal to recharge it, or increasing blink or cloak time.
    Alternatively, you could just have it drain your life alone, and it would just drain slower than the cloak typically would. This would allow the spy to pickup medkits to really get around the enemy base and is a clearly alternative choice... not better or worse.

    The problem is you're imagining a situation where you have the normal watch AND this watch. If I'm understanding this right, this watch would replace the normal cloak, and use your HP (refilled with medpacks) instead of the cloak gauge (refilled with metal).

    Having access to both cloaks (or if this one watch uses both the cloak gauge and then your HP) would be overpowered, since it would give you double cloak duration and the ability to extend it constantly with medkits, ammo and metal. You'd be able to run around non-stop, cloaked at all times, as long as there was any kind of pick-upable around (which there always is some nearby)... It's too much.

    Yet having access to only 1 option, either/or, basically leads to no change in tactic besides "do i look for medkits, or ammo packs?". Which is why I say it seems a little too "same old same old".
