Just because of the reference and all.
Snake? Don't you mean chameleon?
Plus snipers already got his croc hat.
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)
Well... In the way that it's a helmet designed for war, and that the Soldier could easily mistake Sun Tsu for being Japanese.
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.
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
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!
Great job nonetheless, instant download when you release it.
Headbang? That really doesn't sound appropriate for this song.
That was supposed to be the completely subtle pun in there.
also another FunFact
Roald Dahl was a fighter pilot.
How very informative.
Fighter pilot AND writer. Gee, sure was a multitalented guy.
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.
Speed up the sound as well?
Seems like the easiest thing to do, but it would sound a bit off.
So will there be a fix to the Nappers textures along with the textures of other hats?
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
So any news on thew Kill Icon Picker Neo was working on ?
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.
I see you went on quite an Optimistic rating spree, Church_1MD.
