Dark Edge Machete
Description: A higher resolution, modified version of the machete. I've added real wood to the grip, and a dark edge for aesthetic purposes. Yes, that's right: I don't care about functionality, it's all about the aesthetics. hehe.
Install instructions: Open up C:\Program Files\Steam folder... then, "steamapps", then "(whatever your steam account name is)", then "team fortress 2". Copy the "materials" folder from the zip file you downloaded into the "tf" folder. Be sure to say yes when it asks you about overriding stuff.
Uninstall instructions: Go to "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\(your steam account)\team fortress 2\tf\materials\models\weapons\v_machete" folder and delete all the files inside. Also delete the file "bucket_machete" from "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\(your steam account)\team fortress 2\tf\materials\sprites".
Credit: thanks to Valve for making the original and providing the base for the vmts that I used.
The wood is mine, and the metal basically is too: I overlayed my texture on the original's.

Also, please take into consideration my intentions in making this skin while you rate it: I tried for a more realistic look, as well as a higher quality overall texture. It's intentional. I could've easily made it look more cartoony, but that would mean I'd have to degrade the quality, which goes against my aims. If you rate me down for something I strived to achieve...I'm afraid you're transcending at least MY concept of logic. I won't turn this into a long rant, but please do like I asked and take what I'm saying into consideration.
Enjoy the skin! :)
So! that looks slick man. the detail in incredible!
ok, i see high resolution! new textures, a darkened edge,
looks all great. you also modified the screws,
and also the pong, wich looks sweet, both.
oh, also a custom menu image ^^ nice.
you did a great job.
hmmm, i'm still searching for some, altough i'm not sure if i will find some.
ah, found something, altough it's like the only one.
erm, at the beginnning of the blade, some squares appear, maybe you can remove them, looks nicer :)
you could remove the squares, but that's not really an amazingly big improvement.
