the vita saw looks a bit strange imo

it's the fucked up smoothing groups
[list]KGB now has more defined lines, it should show up better as a d_ icon (when you weren't involved with the kill) now.[/list][list]New Bushwhacka icon.[/list][list]New GRU icon. Although I usually use orange to designate fire I think it works ironically well here. It will definitely help the rare kills this weapon gets stand out.[/list][list]New Powerjack icon, by Hecates. Pretty much nicer than the current one.[/list][list]New JAG icon, just in case it gets implemented at some point down the road.[/list][list]New Black Box icon.[/list][list]New L'Etranger icon, now with engraved handle (an attempt to match the Ambassador which may be dropped)[/list][list]New Eternal Reward icon. Designed to match MY Spy knife icon rather than Valves.[/list][list]Updated the Showdown (Heavy taunt kill) icon to have a muzzleflash, and cleaned up some weird lines on the wrist.[/list][list]Updated the Wrangler icon to have some radar-pulse-type-thingies instead of an Ambassador muzzleflash(?)[/list][list]New Short Stop icon. Hopefully I'm done tweaking the line thickness on this thing.[/list][list]New Sydney Sleeper icon. A recoloured version of the regular bodyshot icon to represent the minicrit inflicting nature of the gun.[/list][list]New Syndney Sleeper icon. A side-on drawing of the gun designed to match my Sniper Rifle icon.[/list][list]New Frying Pan icon, by Hecates.[/list][list]New Degreaser icon, by Hecates. More detailed than the version Valve is currently using, but in a good way. Includes 3 variants to match the 3 flamethrower variants I've done. (this kinda works ingame but only when buildings are destroyed with it, otherwise it just shows the regular flamethrower icon)[/list][list]"New" Vita-Saw icon, by Idletard.[/list]
Oh wow this shitty new forum is scaling my image down, click it to make it bigger.
Release will hopefully be tomorrow, I still have to write a few little bits of script and update the big image. Submission to Valve will come soon after.
I love you Neo
Yeah, it does look sort of like a croc-cock sheild
I really like the Wrangler with the radio waves. That's how I always thought it should be.
Can't wait. :love:
Or you can do the original sentry-laser icon
which is what they're saying
or maybe not
Would it be possible for someone to fix the Troublemaker's Tosslecap so it doesn't have the "glossy" look it got in the new update?
Why does everyone hate the sentry laser icon? It could be remade to be better
I'm very fond of the alternate Direct hit, Southern Hospitality, and Tribalman's Shiv icons. They look really nice.
Attempting to help Shugo get a better view of the Darwin Shield.
This is just for reference.
Ok Shugo about your icons,
Fists are bad as you already mentioned
Disguise Kit looks odd but I couldn't tell you why
Invis Watch has very bad lighting
Blutsauger has very bad lighting
Razorback looks huge in comparison to the Huntsman and especially in comparison to Darwin's Danger Shield
Could the Dead Ringer be moved down slightly?
The Holy Mackerel should DEFINITELY be lying on it's side.
The Battalion's Backup is tiny compared to the Buff Banner
And an offer, would you like me to make a hack of the Fez which folds up the glasses and positions them next to the hat, much like the icon for the Lumbricus Lid? Or would you prefer to have the Spy wearing it as the icon? Or just the glasses floating?
Similarly, would you like me to actually reposition the grenades on the Lumbricus Lid model so that you can remake your icon properly? I noticed the previous iteration had some perspective issues that meant the grenades would have to be clipping the hit for your icon to make sense.
Everything else is of course, great :)
Shugo I thought you were redoing some positions to make it look better, like with the cans? The danger shield, razorback, and charge and targe could all use some new positions optimal for shields.
Is it just me or does the Pyro's Attendant appear to be more in "profile" rather than the angle of the other hats/ weapons.
Not to mention the buff packs.
Edit: As an extension of my previous post, how about an edit to the watches too? They've always looked floating like that to me.
-Not sure either. vv
-I'll fix it next time I boot up SDK.
-Blutsauger's lighting in Model Viewer is fucked now for some reason and I have no idea why. Valve screwed something up. I've restored the original texture/model and everything with no results. If you can figure out what the hell's wrong with it, I can fix the icon.
-Huntsman and Darwin's Danger Shield have to be smaller to accommodate them within the icon's limits. I can't really use up any more vertical space than what I'm already using. I could put fade-outs on them, but that makes them look a bit weird. Blame Valve.
-Sorry, but Dead Ringer is one that I think looks fine. It's spot-on the same angle as the other watches. (I checked in the registry.)
-Good thinking. I'll redo that one too.
-Backup's problem is the same as Huntsman's. I had to make it smaller to fit in all its details. I tried fading out the antenna, but then it looks a little bland.
And yes, those models would be awesome and very helpful. Especially the Lumbricus Lid. Right now I have to set that shit back up and do three whole poses every time I want to change its icon.
I can't wait for your icon back, Shugo.
Good luck with the rest.
Speaking of the Attendant, do you plan on adding the bow tie into the icon as well, Shugo?
I was gonna make a witty remark asking who would that person be, even though you linked the profile to the person, but holy shit, new profiles look awesome
- The watches look far better in the alternate style, with the watch face forward.
- Ubersaw looks a little funky, as if it's leaning to the right.
- I love the new Flare Gun.
- Maybe rotate the Disguise Kit? It appears to be at a different angle from the other PDAs.
- I love the new cans. And jar, now the urine obeys gravity.
- Perhaps the Huntsman should be 'lying down,' like the Valve icon? It looks a bit too small here.
- The old, droopy Gunslinger looked better, IMO.
- Rotate the Holy Mackerel so that the fish's face is parallel to the ground. The fishy face is the best part, and this icon just takes that all away.
- Your Eternal Reward and Bushwacka seem to be tilting to the right.
- The Battalion's Backup looks too small. Maybe enlarge it, and fade out the antenna?
- The left (left for Heavy) hand Glove of Running Urgently is tilting too far away from the right. Even the two up a little.
- Black Box seems to be at a different angle from the rest.
- Darwin's Danger Shield is too shiny (I know, not your fault) and looks odd. Maybe rotate 180 so the tail is in the back?
- Sue me, but I like the style of the Dueling badges. Maybe the 119th Badges could look like that?
About the Backup:
Valve's icon appears to have cut off some of the antenna, so you should be fine.
Guys, I just remembered a couple things I requested a long time ago. People started working on them but I never knew of/saw an end result.
I requested a longbow Huntsman and a punching flask for the Demoman. I saw WiP shots for both, but nothing after. Any idea what happened?
