    Should I finish this?


    It was just something I made for fun, with the model done in under an hour, and the texture (well, as-is, and it is obviously unfinished) in another. I set out with the concept looking awesome in my head, but as it fleshed together, I grew to dislike it more and more.

    What do you guys think: Finish, or scrap?

    EDIT: By the way, this isn't for Steam Workshop or anything. It's something I made for giggles, based on Eric Ruth's awesome TF2 styled arcade game
    I think you should totally work on it some more. It's a silly idea but I like it. Some points of criticism:

    1) Have it only 2 player, controls are reeeeeealy crammed in there and make the joystick heads spherical. I think the game itself is 4 player, but in this instance creative liberties may have to be taken.

    2) Screen should be rounded, at least in the corners, and probably inset a little.

    3) I know it's not done, but needs texture work, have it roughed up a bit like it's been in a pizza parlor for ages perhaps?

    4) I think it would be really cool if the screen and top marquee glowed, a lightmap right?

    Keep on trucking dude. Dumb (but fun) projects equal practice and more practice never hurt anyone.

       I feel like a dick listing out criticism like this, but that's how my brain works.   

    EDIT: Pageking? Oh dear lord.

    Okay I know the texture is still shit. This took forever, so I'm taking a break, so here are the base colors.



    Interestingly enough, there are both red and blue versions of Donkey Kong cabinets, so I'll use both variants! I know the color of the original cabinets are a bit bright, but fuck it

    Also it took way too long to find a good quality version of the original art and decals and stuff
    I just came so hard
    And the brightness can be easily photoshopped darker, can't it?

    You know what would go well with this? A melee weapon of the bludgeoning variety
    Oh, you mean a hammer for pyro? That's never been done before!

    And the brightness can be easily photoshopped darker, can't it?
    Gross, but thank you.

    I guess? If it is ridiculously dark I guess I can do that

    Can I try? I never tried before and something made me really want to try to do it.
    Who knows, some good might come out of it.

    In the meantime, here's something a little less retarded:

    "You were loud and ugly, and now you're dead! Amen."


    Anyone know how to add the Genteel Pipe effect to things? Because I know Valve doesn't do it. I'll look at the Muttonchop's QC and see if I can figure it out

    Anyone know how to add the Genteel Pipe effect to things? Because I know Valve doesn't do it. I'll look at the Muttonchop's QC and see if I can figure it out
    first youll need a few things

    you'll need a particles.pcf and a particles_mainfest.txt

    these will go into tf/particles

    you'll then need a particle effect vmt and vft (the alpha channel on the vtf will specify what part of the image shows as the particle)(my particle vtf has a white water drop shape as its alpha channel)

    these will go into tf/materials/effects

    and here is the qc i used to compile it

    Code:
    $cd ""
    $modelname "player/items/pyro/boot_hat.mdl"
    $model "head" "hydrant.smd"
    $cdmaterials "\models\player\items\pyro\"
    $texturegroup skinfamilies
    {
    {
    "hydrant.vmt"
    }
    {
    "hydrant_blue.vmt"
    }
    }
    $hboxset "default"
    $hbox 0 "bip_head" 0.000000 -2.147245 71.791695 -1.120066 0.000000 0.000000
    $attachment "water_hydrant" "bip_head" -0.00 -3.00 -1.00 rotate -15 10 60
    $surfaceprop "solidmetal"
    $illumposition -0.000 -0.585 73.214
    $sequence idle "hydrant" loop fps 30.00
    $keyvalues {
    particles
    {
    	effect
    	{
    		name				"water_hydrant_c"
    		attachment_type		follow_attachment
    		attachment_point	water_hydrant
    	}
    }
    }
    notice the $attachment "water_hydrant" "bip_head" -0.00 -3.00 -1.00 rotate -15 10 60 and key values parameters?

    SPECIAL THANKS Magoolachub for teaching me this.

    NOTE: this will only work if you compile it over in game hats. so if you want to view it, compile over an ingame hat, go to itemtest and equip it from the list NOT FROM FILE. particles wont show if loaded from the sdk directory.

    I very much like the model but it is missing something to set it apart, I am not saying strap a car battery to it but I am also not saying not to.

    Try adding dials or something on the face of the watch. It's a little plain. Looks great though.

    You have to draw on a new layer, then set that layer's blending mode to Multiply

    The teeth alone would be a possibility. But the Trophy Belt uses the default hat, so it cannot replace that specific item without replacing the default hat as well.

    I wish I could come up with some joke referencing pee as an embalming fluid.
    But I can't find a way to make it punny or witty.

    So I'l just type pee a couple of times.

    There, that's sufficient. (Now to come up with a pee related mummy joke.)
