I downloaded this mod long ago, but i started playing again recently. I love the tranquilizer gun, but i wanted to change it. Here are some of the things that were altered: Higher resolution redid/ revised lighting added scratches added phong shading re-did sights entirely Improved contrast Added small details to misc. parts. So i spent some good time on it, tell me what you think.

    While this is slightly different, I would not say that it is improved.

    Not to mention that it is almost identical to the original. You didn't make the skin higher resolution, you just resized the original skin and changed a few parts on it. The only part that is noticeably changed is the rear site. The other parts look either brightened, or recolored.

    the rear sight's dots look very uneven and disproportionate and the scratches all over the dart inside the gun don't need to be there because it's not asthough they are reusable.

    I think since the slide is supposed to be reflective, some orange and blue highlights would have improved it quite a bit.

    By the way, here's a picture of the original if anyone wants to view it.

    I think FF is way better than TF2

    Skin is much better than original one i especially like the phong shading and small details like scratchest , i can see you really put much time and work into this skin ;)

    I'm glad to see how much better you have gotten at skinning and you just keep getting better every single time. Looks perfect in everyway. I'm glad to say that this is outstanding work for such an old mod. Makes it way more enjoyable knowing that you are playing with something that actually looks nice and isn't vomit inducing. Thanks for the release BHS. I'm glad you decided to stay here with fpsb and submit such awesome skins.

    This has to be one of my favourite weapons ever, except for those tube like things, but your improved skin only makes it better, I don't have the original VTF, but it'd be nice if you could show some sortof comparison, just to see how much did do.

    Until then, it looks great, that's good enough for me.
