    Arms Race 2 is live. See the thread here.



    Voting has concluded and the winners have been revealed!




    old

    Its finally here! This is it the moment you've all be waiting for! (Well maybe, I don't know you that well.)
    This is a TF2 weapon mod competition formally know as the "Fully Loaded Showdown". To enter, simple make a TF2 weapon skin and send me the download link by the due date. You can use this thread to post questions and share concepts and progress images. Read the rules, see the prizes, and start stockpiling your arsenal (aka make weapon mods).




    Models created before the contest release on January 6th, 2014 are not allowed.
    Remakes of previously created models made before January 6th, 2014 are not allowed.
    Anything that would be considered copyright infringement is not allowed.
    Using concepts made before the contest release are allowed.
    Weapons that can also be considered cosmetics, such as shoes and backpacks, are not allowed
    (However, medic backpacks accompanied with a medigun are very good.)
    Any size team is allowed (within reason).
    Up to two entries per person are allowed. (though feel free to make more then that and pick your entries later.)
    Entries cannot be submitted to the TF2 Workshop until Tuesday, February 18th. This date may be pushed back.
    Mods can be released at any time.

    Please note, the rules (and everything else on this page) are subject to change.




    Entries are not allowed to be submitted to the workshop prior to Tuesday, February 18th. This is in order to "bombard" the workshop with weapon submissions on that day to grab people’s attention. (A similar arrangement was planned for the Robotic Boogaloo project prior to becoming official.)

    Here is the Workshop thumbnail template, which includes an image for the description.

    For interesting images into the description of your workshop entry use: [img]link_to_image[/img]




    Sunday, February 16th at 11:59pm CST

    (To figure out the deadline time in your region use this time zone converter and select GMT +6 in the "From Time Zone:" box.)

    A download link to your entry must be sent to me via Facepunch Private Message by the due date. Late entries will not be considered.

    Please make the message title “full Steam Username - Weapon Name”.
    In the message body please include:
    A 512x512 (Workshop thumbnail size) image of your item.
    The class(es) the item is for
    Any of the contributors’ Facepunch and Steam usernames,
    Steam profile links




    Internet Movie Firearms Database: Website full of gun images. Check out this page and this page for galleries.

    Art of Swords: Blog with tons of swords and other sharp melee weapons.

    /r/gunpron: This is not actual porn I swear. Has lots of good images.

    /r/knifepron: This one sounds even worse, but has lots of good images, too.

    Also, check out my collection of over 1,000 random images. It uses tags, so you can narrow your search by "weapon", "shotgun", etc. (However, the download will take an eternity and a half.)


    (Link)




    The winners will be chosen by popular vote.

    First Place: $50 Steam Wallet Code + 10 Steam games
    Second Place: $20 Steam Wallet Code + 9 Steam games
    Third Place: TF2 Item Packs + 9 Steam games
    Fourth Place: 8 Steam games
    Fifth Place: 7 Steam games
    Sixth Place: 5 Steam games

    - Participants in a team must decide amongst themselves how to share the prizes in their tier. All Members of a team must verify with me who they want the prizes to go to, before they will be given out.
    - If you submitted two entries, you can only win one prize. If you won a second time with different partners then the first time, the prize will go to the different partners rather then you. If you won with the same partners twice, your group will not receive a second prize.
    - As far as I can tell, there are no regional restrictions on the Steam Wallet Codes, but please note, I may not have an alternative prize available if there are.
    - Winners can pick prizes from below their tier instead of their own tier's prizes.

    Glad you like the logo!

    isn't redoing anything directly against the rules? or am i reading them wrong?

    i have a few old ideas i already tried as babby's first models, but i do have one in my head.... i think this will be good practice for me, as i probably don't even remember how to compile them anymore thanks to using the importer so damn much...

    Mind if I debate the backpack rule? So far when it comes to the soldier, all of his backpack items have been weapons. So is it possible to make an exception for the Soldier class in terms of a backpack banner weapon?
