Yeah. We are workin on it

(Thank you very much Paysus for the header image and image 6, ohh dear lord image 6...) WE NEED MODEL RIGGERS, MODELLERS, AND MAYBE ANOTHER ANIMATOR [Test Video 1](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8E-AexM5ovI "dicks") [what we are striving for](http://www.infinitelooper.com/?v=WJtzK2oyjAA&p=n#/116;119 "spinnny") post 1: we started the project on 8/28/2013, 10:32 PM, we have a basic idea of what we are doing, we plan on making a custom model for the minigun to make it work. update 1: we've been thinking of ideas of how we could make the sentry muzzleflash and minigun muzzleflash work. One idea was to make the muzzleflash a body-group, and have a code to have it so that whenever it shoots it will make the muzzleflash appear in front of the minigun. Another idea was to have it appear in front of the minigun by editing the first and third person animations of the minigun to have it appear in front of the gun whenever the animations are played. Either way it's still going to require editing the model to hide the muzzleflash inside of it. update 2: we are making some progress, we decided to take the edited model way, expect it soon, hopefully. (note, doing this it will only be for the default minigun for now) Update 3: we got the model (hopefully), and this one should work, next update will come depending on weather the animations work or not with this model (see image 2) update 4: we now are faced with a tough decision, finish thirdperson and work on the much easier firstperson? or get the firstperson out of the way so that thirdperson will be sexually deviant, also we are working very hard for you all, so be sure to support those that have helped, or are currently helping by saying thanks to them ^_^. (picture 3 is the firstperson model, this way it should work with all miniguns, but not custom heavy models) update 5(very excited :D ): okay so paysus (using his master animating skills) got a build of the firstperson view (see images 4 and 5) we are getting very close guys, get ready. update 6: image 6.....OHH SWEET JESUS, this is the reason why we have test builds.... it's okay we are gonna fix it. update 7: shitty video :D update 8: sorry for the wait, just alot of testing, and I've been away from the PC to check up on progress, be ready soon though :D update 9: slight hiatus, no pc, typing on a wii u gamepad, will pick back up when I get a new charger update 10: posted to face punch: http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1313298. update 11: messed with the files a little bit, made it look slightly more modern.....or fucked up... what do you guys think? update 11.5: messed with the vmt's more and got this, would you guys like to see this as an option? UPDATE 12!!!!!: all ratchet bullshit holes in the muzzleflash are fixed, it now looks normal!....well it is still freaking huge.... video coming soon. update 13: damn....alot of updates, added image 9 courtesy of FiveEyes, he added transparency, the model will be way smaller, but tell us what you all think of the transparency (note, transparency as of right now will also make the other beta muzzleflashes slightly transparent just like the minigun.)? update 14 (getting closer): paysus is making it smaller, and a littler more accurate, about to start on thirdperson. update 15: done with firstperson animations (small tweaks are needed, not much else, essentially done) gonna work on 3rd person. update 16: man it's been a long time, anyone want to help with rigging? update 17: we just got in contact with the guy who made the two hand cannon and hopefully he might make 3rd person animations for us, please be patient, this is a huge project, and one of the first of its kind. update 18: paysus got 3rdperson working, fixing out kinks and such now, picture 12 is complete courtesy of paysus update 19: we're done http://tf2.gamebanana.com/skins/130551 We are not dead, just hitting a standing point :< be patient though want to help? pm me, and I'll add you to the project!

    Thanks man. How does it feel that you'll be the first guy who had a part in making something people have tried to recreate since TF2 moved from beta to release?

    Well I think you're mistaken because I made this account just to post comments on this page and have never posted here before. Lurked for years, but never made an account. I chose anonymous at first because I felt people wouldn't have taken a new account seriously.

    You know I would never let a project like this just die, not releasing what I have. It's literally 90% done (even though this WiP doesn't show it). Here's my post on Facepunch:

    "It's basically done, except for a couple bugs:

    It doesn't stay solid in third person, it appears and disappears incredibly fast instead.

    If you fire while spooled up, sometimes, the muzzleflash stays there and spinning for about a second. This is kiiiinda Valve's fault, and there's nothing I can do about it. This happens with the firing animation itself in third person, and because the muzzleflash relies on the third person firing animation.

    Oh, and by the way, this was made by adding a muzzleflash model bodygroup added to all of the miniguns, and scripted to appear during the Heavy's fire_loop anim."

    By the way, it's really obvious who you are.
