So basically nobody knows this cause I just dropped off of Gamebanana for a few months (save for a few occasions) but I stopped posting for about 3 reasons:
Probably the biggest reason. I got scammed out of all of my valuable items with a scam I hadn't recognized until it was too late. As a non-trader, all of my items I had were earned or gifted, so I basically lost a part of my childhood to some scum on the internet. This included an Aussie Eyelander I held very dear, a shitload of Professional Killstreak Strange items, birthday and Christmas gifts from my friends, and basically all of my taunts. Not only that but I blame myself for being so stupid as to not realize it was a scam and went into a pretty bad depression for awhile. Blah blah sob story, basically obliterated my motivation to play TF2. I haven't opened TF2 since, as I'm afraid of seeing the damage done in person
After modding TF2 for around 6-7 consecutive years, I got really burned out. That paired with a really bad work ethic lead to me never completing mods.
I really hated the site changes. A majority of old features were left out of the new site and in general it felt like a downgrade. That and the fact that none of these changes were beta-tested by the whole of the community made it feel very forced and not worth the effort. (I don't even know if the changes were even announced to the community before being pushed to the main site)
Anyways, I'm bored as hell and I figured I might start animating again. This poll is just so I know what to work on (if anyone who remembers me even uses this site anymore lmao). I haven't decided whether I'll make an alt account to test animations so I don't have to look at my main one, but I'll get there when I get there
Alright just a little update incase it causes people to change their votes:
For existing/released packs, by "Update" I mean I'll be revisiting them. I'll likely redoing most of the animations from scratch (EX: Demo's Stickbomb animations), and touching up/re-attempting the ones I like (Ex: Pyro's Flaregun).
My goal with these packs is for them to be seen as a good alternative to Paysus' animation packs. I don't expect them to ever replace them, as Paysus' animations are god-tier smooth, but I'd like them to be a competitor again.
Argh.. Given we're constrained to one vote... I'm tempted to say Pyro/Engineer (as your Pyro animations were the first mod I've ever installed...)
I really feel bad for you.... I've myself lost valuables items (not tf2 items but on another game..) items that took me years to find.. I know that feel of being robbed, ripped off... It's painful, it's something you wish it never happened... But alas, you can't just modify the past. What happened has happened.
I have an idea for a mod: Painis Cupcake For Rocket Launchers (mostly Direct Hit) you could make the Soldier to spit shovels. And for banners, raging screaming. For melee just bare hands, but this has been done before so it's REALLY optional.
Oofie... Yeah, you gotta scan trades with a microscope nowadays with scammers running amok, if you do manage to start chugging again, i suggest writing down limits for yourself to avoid burnout, like only spending a set time frame before taking a break or shifting focus to something else for a bit.
