Transgender Pride Flag Themed Festive Lights!
- A Mod for Team Fortress 2
i feel like the oversaturation of LGBT themed mods, not only feels like pandering, but is honestly just getting old. I don't even think this looks bad, or particularly good, just okay. It's fine. It's a mod, it changes colors, it looks cool. But there's nothing special about it and it feels like a cheap attempt at spreading a political opinion.
I don't think the mod itself has anything wrong with it. The colors are okay, they look good in TF2. Shit, pink and blue are part of my own website branding, they're pretty colors. My issues are only to do with the way it's presented.
I'm all for trans people being accepted but this pride stuff doesn't suit my taste. And for the reasons I mentioned above, that's why people are posting nasty comments. I don't think all of the hate is necessary but there's a reason mods like this recieve so much backlash. P.S. leaving a spammy note on the comment box because you're upset some people didn't like your mod is a little annoying and I would appreciate if you didn't do that. you're gonna have haters, it's inevitable, it's better to put up with it than give them an explosive reaction
I misread the title initially as "Transgender Lights" and lost a full moment or two wondering what that could've been :v
I'm aware that the T-Flag uses light hues and pastel colors that're low in terms of saturation, but I suppose they don't translate a bit too well onto the model itself. Just a minor tweak in terms of increasing the saturation might just do the trick.
Anyhoo, please use the actual models on the thumbnail, though. You can still keep the one that you have on currently, but try to squeeze in the models as well.
This mod is pretty neatly made! My one critique is that the colours are a bit washed out (though that's more down to the fact the trans pride flag is made of washed out pastel colours), and maybe increasing their saturation would make them stand out a bit from each other (at the moment, the pink lights look a bit too close to white and don't really look like the pink colour of the flag).
