L4D 2 Skinning!

For the last few months a team of staff and top L4D2 authors from GameBanana have been working with Valve to develop the brand new L4D2 workshop. Last week it came out of private beta and is now open to public submissions. [L4D2 Workshop]

To help kick start the flow of custom content VALVE have given us some awesome prizes to launch a modding competition!

Not only have they given us a huge, 15" Limited Edition tank statue, they've also given us two signed copies of Valve presents, plus loads of t-shirts and hoodies!

This time the goal is simple, all you have to to is create your ideal zombie killing weapon!

Prizes

  • 1st Place: Limited Edition 15" Tank Statue (Valued at over $300) + L4D t-shirt & hoodie!
  • 2nd Place: A signed copy of Valve Presents + L4D t-shirt & hoodie!
  • 3rd Place: 3 copies of L4D2 for your friends + a L4D t-shirt & hoodie!
  • Runners up: 4th and 5th Place will also get themselves an item of L4D clothing!

Rules

  • Entries must be a playable reskin, replacement or new item for Left 4 Dead 2.
  • Entries must be created for the contest (cannot be a previously available skin).
  • Multiple entries and / or packs are allowed, however quality is better than quantity.
  • Entries must be submitted to Left 4 Dead 2 > Skins > L4D2 Skinning Contest.
  • Entries can be team created but teams will have to decide how to split the prize.
  • Entries cannot be modified after the deadline except for changes to the submission profile (changing descriptions, notes or screenshots).
  • Entries must contain a readme file stating it was created for the GameBanana L4D2 competition.
  • Judges cannot enter or assist entrants.

Need Ideas?

How about:

  • Machine Guns
  • Shotguns
  • Golf Clubs, Axes, Cricket Bats, Crowbars, Machetes!
  • Chainsaw!
  • Flamethrowers!
  • Grenade Launchers!
  • Etc..

    I agree on all the winners, though I wished that the chainsword would have reached the top 5, but ey that's just my opinion. I though it to be way cooler than just a few new animations-pack for example, not to say that the new animations are not good, but I just think a new skin is in most cases easily more impressive, such as the chainsword from Avlord.

    Anyways nice competition, I'm curious to see what's going to be in the next skinning competition (Historical weapons)

    Posted by Rafael De Jongh In global the contest was pretty successful! We've got some great and interesting submissions so I really wonder what the results will be like!

    The results will be here when Jonny gets back.

    Any update on this?

    Yeah, sorry about this. First we didn't have enough judgements, after that the gdc came and due to that jonny and tom didn't have any time and now the cevo contests... but it shouldn't take much longer, Jonny has the results already, now we just wait for Tom to approve...

    Posted by SkyppySDK Oh wait, it wasn't my fault they didn't appear? ... Someone said it was because I used the l4d1 maps/characters in l4d2... I'll redo the thing tomorrow...

    Thanks. In the weapon scripts (CharacterViewModelAddon section), there's 1 model path each for the 8 survivors' arms. For some reason unknown to me, the weapon scripts contained in the game resources only contain the latter 4.

    Posted by SkyppySDK Yea, it's my fault, I just didn't realise it has no arms, I'm thinking about re-shooting / rendering it

    Crap. It's been so long since I've had to do that I completely forgot. At least they're only missing if you use the scripted version. Well, anyway... uploading the fix now.

    Edit: Since I can't update the release myself, I left a link in the comments.
