Yeah yeah, I know, who hasen't done a gold skin? I just figured I would make one with semi-decent textures to give more than a simple recolor for those looking for a gold machete. Have at it. ;)

Just slap the "materials" folder into your "tf' folder.

    Pros: It has amount of details, and isnt plain color as usually "Golden weapons"
    I like the phong and grip, but i dont like so much the golden color because it is overused and kinda easy to do.
    Cons: Wood doesnt looklike wood.
    Improvements: Wood more like platic. Try doing some details for the wood.
    Notes: It is good job, but i think gold is SuperMegaHyperOverused and is kinda booring. I hope I can see more good work from you because you have skills! :)

    8.9/10

    Pros:
    Man....this is nice. Hi-res really helped out this skin and the bumpmap couldn't have fit any better.

    Cons:
    The handle needs to be worked on. You got an awesome blade with a flat plain handle.

    Improvements:
    The cons. I think a wood or marble texture (and include it in the bumpmap).

    Notes:
    Even though this isn't original (nice criteria btw) its done right with a lot of thought put into it. Great work!


    Thanks! I'll definitely get working on the handle varient later today.

    Detail: Awesome work, I like it a lot. You can see quite easily the metal part of the blade has a fair amount of scratches and such. Which makes a lot of sense considering it's a machete.

    I'd incorporate a theme criterion too, as the skin itself has a nice choice of colours and a general good looking theme to it. Dark black and brown types with the Gold metal, makes sense. Screws are also recoloured. I hope there is a world model.

    Realism: Eh, not the best criterion to choose for this game, and specifically this weapon eh heh...gold machetes, never have and I don't think I ever will see one.

    Texture: Texture looks nice, I like the fact you've added more phong apparently, and added a normal map to it. I think the thing I like the most, is the way the skin suits the lighting it's shown in. For example the skin will go light shades of yellowy gold in harsh light. Then really dark shades of yellows and golds in corners etc. Nice touch.

    unoriginality: Sadly this let's it down. I'm going to leave this at a 5. It's kind of funny, but it's just an inverted criterion. Gold weapons are getting a bit over used mate. Perhaps you should have chosen Theme, or not even added the extra fourth criterion.

    Pros: Very nice. The gold colour is just the right shade, not too light or dark. it is also lighter and darker at places, could be the lighting or the fact that you have added some tone.
    from what i see, there is some kind of impring near the handle which looks very nice, as most gold things are infact marked so this makes it more realistic. The texture of the handle itself is just great. it seems to be very good and the scratches add to the realism. There is very good detail into this skin also, and with normals and custom phong, i think this is a very good skin. i think the handle is done very nicley also. it really shows off the gold but doesnt take it too far down. the texture of the handle is very good also. i think this is a very good skin and i highly doubt it would be trashed, and if anybody does mark as spam or whatever and thinks this should be trashed then they are most likely idiotic.
    Cons: i do not see any cons whatsoever
    Notes: fabulous skin and although i am not a fan of most gold weapons this is one of the exceptions. great work :)

    I actually like this skin a lot, it does actually look like it's gold instead of just colored yellow. The black handle also compliments the gold very well.

    Good job.

    Didn't you trash this not too long ago?


    I re-did the gradients, the last version had a problem, so I trashed it.

    Please don't mark as spam, I actually spent a decent amount of time making the textures and gradients for this. I understand it's highly overdone, but I haven't seen a re-textured gold machete yet, and I'd like to have it available, even if there is a small fan-base for gold weapons.
