Model: The 3D model itself is fine, however the animations are part of the model and I have had problems with:
1) Critical hit animation for view model, and 2) World model animations for taunts
Originality: Suits the "Down-under" Aussie theme brilliantly and it's a custom model, which makes for 10/10 originality.
Texture: Great quality wooden texture, which looks fantastic in-game. Only drawback I found was that the directory structure in the archive was wrong ("materials\weapons\Boomerang" instead of "\materials\models\weapons\Boomerang"), so I had to move the files manually after the install to make the textures display in-game.
Still a fantastic job overall. This would be an absolute ripper of a replacement machete if the animation and directory structure problems could be fixed.
Pros: Good textures and shape
Cons: none really
Improvements: have an engraving maybe like belongs to sniper or sumat lyke tht, thinking of which we need a name for the sniper lol
Notes: keep up the gd work :D
This is the only Machete skin I would use. Its great to say the least. It really brings out the snipers character which is extremely important. The characters are undoubtedly one of the better parts about TF2.
The model is almost perfect. It really looks like a boomerang. I like the placement on the screen of it too. One problem with it is for some reason when you taunt the boomerang floats in the air while you taunt weaponless. I'm not sure why this would be happening or how you'd go about fixing it but it is something to fix.
The wood grain looks very realistic. Nothing to fix comes to mind.
This skin is a great idea overall. Its something most people couldn't think of on their own. Keep up the good work
