    Thinking about it on sniper he would look more like Raoul Duke if shorter.
    Communist Cake already made this, and it's the best hat ever made in my opinion. :love:

    Just because of the reference and all.

    Well, finally finished the second concept. Feast your eyes, gentlemen.



    Man, I hope I didn't go too overboard. It would suck if it turns out this can't be modeled. :C

    Anyways, which do you prefer more:

    Design number 1?

    Or design number 2?

    I guess Agree for 1, Disagree for 2. I'm interested in hearing what FP thinks.
    Now we need a reptilian head hat for every other class too

    I could say the same thing about the Killer's Kabuto, to be honest, but I see your point.
    I suppose the Kabuto makes as much sense as the Tyrant's Helmet and Chieftain's Challenge

    I think that might be taking it to far. The dragon is good for pyro and adding reptiles to all others kind of starts to loose the unique factor of it in a sense, well at least to me.
    Plus snipers already got his croc hat.

    How do you even screw something up like that
    You define the icon limits using a text file and pixel coordinates.

    So it's very easy to screw up.

    Well i made a sound mod for the minigun based on "In The Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg

    The spin up sound is buggy, it uses the Natasha sounds and the volumes are a little inconsistent but it's a start.

    I would have made some kind of mini-gun replacement made up of various brass instruments but I'm too lazy.

    At least the sound loops near perfectly (if I listen REALLY hard I can almost make out a bit where it jumps slightly)

    Anyway, enjoy

    Hey, My Killer's Kabuto makes slightly more sense than the Viking or Chieftain :P

    Well... In the way that it's a helmet designed for war, and that the Soldier could easily mistake Sun Tsu for being Japanese.

    I can see where you're coming from, though this topic alone can have many different views. I think we can all agree they deviate from the original designs of the character in some way.

    In terms of which hats deviate more, like I said, can differ between individuals. I personally think the Killer's Kabuto makes as much little sense as the Viking Helmet and Chieftain does as they hail from different origins other than the patriotic American theme we know from the Soldier. Killer's Kabuto obviously being Japanese, Chieftan being Native American, Viking being, well, Viking. Sure, the Kabuto is war-like, but that's not really enough. That, and Sun Tzu is Chinese, not Japanese.

    That being said, my previous comment of saying my chinese dragon hat being just as bad as the Killer's Kabuto seems pretty reasonable to me as its theme equally differs in some way from the Pyro as the Kabuto does to the Soldier. Actually, one could say that since we don't truly know the Pyro's origin, really anything goes for him. It's a dragon, symbolizes fire, it fits his theme.

    Most players won't care for all this anyways, it's a goddamn dragon. :V

    Just make sure you make it paint-compatible or else Valve will horribly rape your hat over, break smoothing groups/specular maps and turn all texture detail into solid colors.

    Also who needs automerge, But in regards to the Dragon hat, I liked it when it actually looked like a proper cheap dragon hat, not saying that I dislike the new design, I'd like it if it looked a bit more... mass produced cheaply.

    Ragnar and I have actually thought about just designing both hats and submitting them both to Valve and see which ones get accepted. I personally like them both too much to scrap one of them.

    Just make sure you make it paint-compatible or else Valve will horribly rape your hat over, break smoothing groups/specular maps and turn all texture detail into solid colors.
    And don't worry, we've already thought about this lol.

    Didn't want to have to say this, but I explained the Chinese to Japanese thing :P

    Given the Soldier's level of ignorance and patriotism.
    This common racist line comes to mind, "All Asians look the same"

    Hence the mistake, the Kabuto will always make slightly more sense than the Viking and Chieftain, as these two other hats make no reference to his character other than his fighting spirit, which is shared with the Kabuto.

    Dragons however, are cool, and it makes complete sense with Pyro >:3

    Oh goddamnit I forgot about that damn hat haha.

    Well I guess Dr. Seuss wasn't the only one to wear it, maybe a Spartan or a Roman officer decided to wear it one day because he thought it looked cool and everyone was mocking him so he beat the shit out of them, but only soldier knows this story.

    Because he invented it!

    This is the most fucking awesome thing ever. Try and see if you can fix the slightly off-beat loop, it makes this hard to headbang properly to, same goes for spinup.

    Great job nonetheless, instant download when you release it.

    and while i'm here i might mention that thanks to the new reduced spinup time on the minigun's the sound cuts off.

    I have no idea how to fix as of yet.

    Any ideas would be welcome.

    Ah, I noticed you did mention this in your previous reply, my apologies. Even so, it still deviates ever so slightly from Soldier's main U.S. soldier theme.

    But anyways, yeah, even though they deviate from said source, they still work. :V Killer's Kabuto is my favorite Soldier hat, and I'm hoping this chinese dragon hat makes it in and is loved by all. Who doesn't love googly eyes? :3

    You probably know this much but it's a website now instead of an .exe, and is being worked on by Galago and Athernar (of TF2B).

    Well, supposedly it's still being worked on, anyway.
