72 Comments - Linear Discussion: Classic Style
  • This was my idea and if I had made the thread it would have been much politer.

    Please though, I'd love my badge to look all normal mapped and nice :)

    edit (read this before you tell me I shouldn't want this please!)

    Basically, I really love what they did with the original texture. It looked really nice and seemed to mirror the style of the TV show badge perfectly, in that it was much more detailed than the world around it.

    I'm not asking for the PSD, or the OBJ, or any sort of source file - Just a TGA, or a BMP, or whatever else is good! I'm sorry if I come across as greedy or ungrateful, it just pains me to see a nice model like that get reworked in such a way.

    And I am DEFINITELY not asking for the normal map to be reimplemented in TF2. I can obviously see why that's a problem to the games style.

    (and I KNOW it's unlikely to happen. Companies are understandably protective over their assets - but can it really hurt to ask?)

    Yeah, he did have the idea, I just made the thread.

  • Of course it's not that detailed.

    Medals have to keep to a low poly count and the textures can't be that detailed.

    Look at it in whole.

    Though the gray and gold looks superior to the blue and yellow.

    Sorry, but you don't know what you're talking about. Even if that was the case, we're not asking for an official patch. Just the textures, for a clientside "fix".

  • I think it's more than that, I'm pretty sure they also want to make sure these items line up nicely with the TF2 art style in game.

    To this extent I think it looks fine. Sure, it's doofy, but it's TF2.

    I fully understand the reasoning, but in my opinion it's been way overdone. The geometry hinting at detail that is meant to be exagerated by the normal map looks very strange on it's own.

    And besides, it (would be) a client-side mod. You wouldn't have to see it if you didn't want to.

    I'm just saying it needs to be recognizable at a distance and it has to keep to low poly/texture detail for performance.

    I don't think they are going to release a client side "fix" for this.
    Someone will probably come along with a re-texture that will look like the one in the trailer and post it on fpsbanana or something.

  • That's nice. But am I not entitled to request?

    I mean I can totally understand if it's not the sort of thing you'd want, but I don't see why you'd try and tell me I shouldn't want it too. That's ignorant.

    I never said that, I was just saying why they wouldn't do it.

    I'm sorry I just don't think they will do it. :(

    Trust me I like the other color scheme too.

  • But Telltale are cool :cool:

    Have faith!
