Contest has ended.

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!

- Runners up: 4th and 5th Place will also get themselves an item of L4D clothing!

Rules

    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)

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.
