Hi polycount, I chose the spy for the weapon pack that I'll make.

First is gonna be an alternative weapon for the knife.

The knife alternative will be: the electro-taser

I take a good look at the current weapons and liked how some had wires going around a bit. Also how things a just blatantly taped on the razorback. I also took the switches on the sapper and the big button on the PDA.

Here's the model I've came with so far, The UVs are also finished.


Also here's another view of the model with the UV layout.


Next step: Texturing

I'm always a fan of ambient occlusion. Model looks great! I say you're ready for textures.

I'm guessing the switch is for turning it on and big red button closes the circuit and makes it go zap?

Spy's weapons are all sleek/custom manufactured for their specific purpose rather than 'cobbled together', like the Sniper's items. The other items you're making should keep within that style, so the taser doesn't seem out of place.
Other than that, the taser looks great!

Textures for the electro-taser are finished. Includes a diffuse map, a specular map and a self-illumination map. (no normal map, may add one if necessary)

Here's the shaded version:

Here's the non-shaded version (pure diffuse)

Next step: work for a design on the sap-shooter, will look into putting the electro-taser ingame later.

The idea is cool and awesome BUT, and this is a big but, "The contest says the weapon has to keep the functionality of the weapon it's replacing"

It does keep the functionality of the knife. like (almost) every alternate weapons, it simply has slight pro and cons differences. However for the other two weapons I agree that I'm really stretching it BUT they still fullfill the spy's funtionality and role.

Here's the model for the blankshot watch. a little projector projecting an hologram (will just be a cone will some kind of holographic texture) an incorporated mic and 2 tiny speakers. I had the idea of the spy mimicking the sounds of the fake weapon he is shouting in the mic. So for the other team it will look like it will really fire the weapon but from the other teammates they see you making pewpew sounds in the watch. (like how you actually only wear a mask while disguised but you still fool the other team in looking exactly like another class)

UVs are done.

Next step: Texturing

How do you draw the "brush-TF2" textures? Do you use presets?

THIS is really awesome! But I think it needs too much proprietary stuff-sounds,holographics,animations,scripts...

For the method I used to do the texture TF2 style I can provide the PSD I made for the diffuse texture of the electro-sapper so you can look it more in depth:

Also for the sound stuff for the blank shot, I'll probably manage to provide some sample sound (ho luck I'm french) and for the "holographic" part like I said will just be an animated texture on a cone model attached to the watch. For the animations, I know a few poeple who can help me with that. As for the script part, I guess I can't do much but let that part to the guys at valve.

For the sapper, I would use a darker tone so that it doesn't distract from "the big red button," Which is a very good key piece on the model.

I finished the Texture for the blankshot watch.
The hologram effect is a place holder tough, I'll see if I can manage to get a similar shader in a VMT. Also Blender dont really have multiple smoothing groups and I plan on exporting it to 3ds max also for rigging and exporting it into a SMD file for compiling.

Next step: modelling the sap-shooter.

Magnificent! très beau travail!

Love the watch, but just the top where the light comes from you can clearly see the triangles there, you could fix that, the new sapper is very good though just not convinced by the color palette don't think it fits perfectly in TF2 color palette, i would saturate it a bit more.

Still awesome stuff =D

I assume you mean taser but I agree. The beige colour looks a bit off and I think a darker colour would look better.

All your stuff looks excellent though.

Finally managed to get the model replace the knife, was harder and took more time to manage to import it then modelling/texturing it
All needed left it making the custom animations so the spy can hold it right and look for some particles to add in.

Quite honestly, your taser looks like it could potentially be a sapper, but if you can get it to be shown that it's obviously a melee weapon in the animations, then by all means go for it, but it really seems like it could easily be a sapper.

After a quick skim through I thought it WAS a sapper replacement.

I'd definitely consider changing it's use to the sapper instead of the knife as that seems to make most sense.
