Pros: love this skin was looking for a better dod skin
Cons: default model /sounds valve is nice and all but im looking for a change
Improvements: get sounds!
Notes: currently replaces my skin. good job on the texture.
Just a short review:
It does look better than the default. The weathering is convincing, it does look like a weapon that has been in use outdoors maybe a bit too long. this was a good job. However not much else was done to the reskin, so there's not a lot of things to assess
Phong effects are good. While I prefer the method of using the exponent maps, using this method does have the bonus of using (and therefore loading into memory) one less texture.
I feel it falls short on the normal map. This affected my rating the most. You bumpmapped the gun okay but you also bumpmapped the weathering effects. That last pic with the upper slide says it all for me. The bumpmap makes it looks like the slide has been dropforged rather than machined. that alone killed the realism factor for me. I would try to be a little more subtle with the bumpmapping in the areas where you added all that weathering
