    VISIT THE UPDATE WEBSITE FOR DETAILS

    This is the collaboration thread for our new community update 'TF2's Robotic Boogaloo'. Ran by myself and NeoDement, we aim to create and collect together as many robotised hats as possible, then present them all together in a sexy community update website. Including a full comic explaining the story behind the event, and an SFM short to tease people.

    We would also like to announce we're working with TF2maps.net and their MvM mapping contest, to create a special MvM mission, using some of the hats made for the update!

    This thread should be used to post questions, concepts, model and texture progress and to give constructive criticism on people work. Everyone is welcome to participate, but you need to ask the permission of an items original creator if you decide to re-make a community item. I will try and catalogue all unused concepts in this OP.

    The deadline is 10th jan. Please submit all items to the email address by that time. Items may be submitted late, but are in danger of not being included. DO NOT UPLOAD TO THE WORKSHOP UNTIL THE UPDATE IS LIVE. The update will be release live on KritzKast a couple of weeks after the submission deadline 10th Jan. Everyone that submits items to the email address will receive an email when the update goes live, letting you know you can now upload to workshop, with some information you need to paste into their workshop item description (links to the website etc).

    SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

    - These guidelines assume you have already completely finished and compiled your item. If this is not the case, click here for help.

    - You should email your items as ZIPS as attachments to tf2electricboogaloo@gmail.com - All items should be submitted by 10th Jan 2013

    - Item archives should only include the folders Models and Materials, both following the directory structure used by the game.

    - The subject of your email should include your username, the name of the item youíre replacing, and the name of your new item. Something like NeoDement_BuccaneersBicorne_BoltedBicorne will do fine.

    - No items should be uploaded to the workshop until the update goes live, a couple of weeks after the deadline (10th Jan).
    An email will be sent to all submitting artists to notify them of this.

    - When submitting to the workshop, the original author of the item must be the one to upload it. If you are re-making a Valve hat, the new modeller should upload.

    STYLE GUIDELINES

    - Donít remake any community-contributed hats without getting the original authors permission. You may remake any Valve-made item or items that you created yourself.

    - Items should follow either the style guidelines of the original merc robots made by Valve or the MVM loot hats, think lots of metal and intense battle damage.

    - Donít submit anything that doesnít follow the above guideline, for example weíre not really looking for a jaw of flesh and bone as a parody of the already very
    robotically styled Big Steel Jaw of Summer Fun.

    - Try and make sure your hat fits on both the regular class' head, and the robot version of the class' head. If it has to clip with one of the heads, make it clip with the Robot head. When dealing with body hugging miscs like the Fast learner, Either make one item that fits the robot class perfectly, or make two versions for human and robot.

    THERE IS ALSO AN IMGUR GALLERY OF CONCEPTS HERE

    For a comprehensive list of what's known to be finished/worked on/concepted, and who by GO HERE for a table style webpage with all the information you're likley to need!

    I would like to ask what the guidelines are for sharing concepts

    Do we need the permission of the original concept maker to share it?
    Do we just need to credit them?
    Do we only share them if they're up for grabs and not going to be modeled by anyone else?

    Well, usual etiquette applies. If someone's posted a concept, and you make it, they should include them in the workshop %. Anything else would just be greedy/rude.

    If someone posts a concept and say it's up for grabs, then it's usable. If they say they're making it, then it's not. just use common sense.

    Ask permission, and share only if they want I guess.

    Also I need a call out to Jacen who made the Hermes so I can get his blessing, I've sent him an SF request but no response so far.

    If anyone knows him or has him on their friends list could they notify him if possible? Many Friendlies will be rated.

    And I'd like to bring my post back up here.

    I think the guidlines made for the robot update are a bit strange. First there is stated there needs to be asked for permission at the owner of the normal hat(which is ofcource logical) But than there is stated this person uploads the robot hat also, this makes it a lot more complicated. Black on white permission sould be enough I sould say. Also the original maker might not want any share on this bothat for instance, though he likes it and want it to be online. Why would this block the item from submission?

    Spark's doing the executioner and Tin Opener. I think the Newspaper hat is done, its marked as complete and paintable by Cuntsman, but I can't find it for the life of me


    FudgieWudgie + Dongolator - Prince Tavish's Crown - Concept Only

    Its down as concept only, and I haven't seen anybody say they were modelling it

    The firefighter is also claimed.
    Ax3l/ZombiPlastiClok - Fireman Helmet - ZombiPlastiClok or Ax3l are modelling, concept by Cuntsman

    I'm an idiot and wrote down both of you for some reason, who's modelling?

    Rain, are you automatically calming your concepts, or are you leaving them open to anyone?

    Rain's Snaggletooth is open for modelling as far as I'm concerned. He said he wants to try and improve the concept before he takes a stab at it.

    Personally, I'd wait for Rain, even if the concept seems good enough

    No idea. I dont even know who ZombiPlastiClok is. I suppose it will have to be either whose model is the nicest or who finishes first.

    Who made the design for the update site? It looks great.

    My progress:

    Football Helmet - Completed
    Pickelhaube - Completed
    Tyrolean - Completed
    Max's Head - Completed

    Medic's Mirror - Started working on the mesh, about 40% done
    Handyman's Handle - Got permission by the original creator
    Dr. Whoa - No progress so far, still need permission by the author, might not have time to finish this

    Well, it's ronins, so you'd need permission from him. I heard he was going to remake it, but he's never posted about it himself.

    Maybe this time people will appreciate my idea...

    Maybe we could show off the cosmetics / implement our own bots for shits and giggles with custom .pop files for Community MvM maps like these?
