FSB - Special Baking Episode 5d
  • Feature Sloofy makes banana bread :)
A crucial part of the original request outlined by Potassium Birb was to bake banana bread. While any sane modder would take this as a joke, I saw it as an open invitation to make every part of the request a reality. So, here we are in our new, banana-filled world, coaxed in gluten (and glutton).

Our first game plan was to find a recipe. For this, I used this recipe here. If you want to follow in my footsteps, this is a great way to start baking. It's an experience to have with friends and family; the vying for control on who's baking the banana bread and the screaming that follows with every next step. You'll love it. It'll bring you all much closer. Up until you have to blame someone for doing their job poorly.

Now, you're probably interested in the taste. I'm not much of a sweets person, so we cut back on the sugar from 3/4 cups to half of that (what, 1.5/4? 2/7ths? I'm bad at math). We also don't have baking powder on us, not to mention the temperature wasn't listed on the recipe. We might've butchered the full experience, here. But the bread was a nice, fluffy delicacy, mellowed out from its youth in the oven. The bananas were shy in making an appearance as we used only 2 bananas. That said, they come back around to gratify you as part of its titular role.

All-in-all, it's subtle. It's a novice at the job, just like we were; it represented our ability to bake. But it did the job well, a true symbol of a pride to create things. For next time, maybe more bananas. Also some nuts would be nice, too. Not bad; could be better.

I rate the banana bread 3/5.

Fight Songs icons when people die.

What is Fight Songs Billing?


As per a request made by Potassium Birb, this mod will recreate the mercenaries shown on the Fight Songs soundtrack for use in the casual deathboard (Does anyone actually know what that thing is called?). This means that when people die, they will show up injured as shown in the official art.

What's the state of the WIP?


So far, this is the breakdown:

Regular portraits | Injured
  1. Scout [Yes] [Yes]
  2. Soldier [Yes] [Yes]
  3. Pyro [Yes] [Yes*]
  4. Demoman [Yes] [No]
  5. Heavy [Yes] [Yes]
  6. Medic [Yes] [Yes]
  7. Engineer [Yes] [Yes]
  8. Sniper [Yes] [Yes]
  9. Spy [Yes] [Yes]

* We have many different Pyro renditions available as alt designs now, all of them by the community. If you've an idea you want to see for Pyro, let us know.

Why is this a WIP?


There are a few reasons for that:
  1. The injured mercs mean custom textures and custom models. So far, I've been able to paint the injuries on post-render, but we're hitting the limit to how far this method will work.
  2. Waiting until I have all the injured mercs ready will take a while. It'd be best if I just released what I have now.
  3. There is a problem where the loading screen tips share the same files as the casual deathboard. I've not figured out a solution to separate the two. As of version 0.3, this has been resolved (thanks, Potassium Birb!)
  4. I have not finished polishing or cleaning up the renders. In this stage of development, I might end up having to rerender things a couple of times.
  5. Feedback is always nice.
  6. I dunno, sounds cool.

Overtime, I'll include more renders and probably fix a few things, just like how I did with SOUP. However, this mod will only change what was outlined in the original request.

Can I help?


Yes. I need someone who can make Demo's gauze pad. The request is here, should you be interested: https://gamebanana.com/requests/31714

Other than that, constructive feedback is always the best. Later on, I'll publish the SFM .dmx files for anyone to edit.

Can I download this now?


Yes. It's not finished, nor is everything polished up. Don't expect a finished product.

Does this work with a custom HUD?


Yes. The only potential mod conflict is if you have something that does exactly what this mod replaces.

Modboy compatibility?


As outlined in the official Modboy Help wiki article (in header 6), Modboy has no clue how to install mods outside of effects, game files, sprays, maps, skins, and sounds. This is due to a lack of a configuration file for the game and mod category (in this case, TF2-GUI mods). So, in short, this is dependent on someone updating the Modboy config script for GUI support, which is outside what I can do.

For a longer read on the subject, check this comment.

tldr; it's outside of my control and it won't be happening, sorry.

    Do you see banana man
    Hopping over on the white hot sand
    Here he come with some for me
    Freshly taken from banana tree (one, two, three, four)
    Banana man me want a tan
    Give me double on the bonus one
    Give me more for all me friends
    This banana flow never end
    Do you want a banana?
    Peel it down and go mm mm mm mm
    Do you want a banana?
    This banana for you
    Tonight we dance around the flame
    Then we get to play the spirit game
    Spirit names we shout out loud
    Shake the thunder from the spirit cloud
    Morning songbirds in the tree
    Chant a tune to let the spirits free
    Then we see them in the night
    Spirits jumpin' by the fire light
    Do you want a banana? (Do you want a banana)
    Peel it down and go mm mm mm mm
    Do you want a banana? (Do you want a banana)
    This banana for you
    Look you your too uptight you know
    You can laugh and kick it back and go (we)
    But without a rhythm or a rhyme
    You do not banana all the time
    Fly away from city on the run
    Try to make a little fun
    Look you come to the bungalow
    Africans you tell me don't you so
    Don't you love the pumping of the drum
    Make you shake until the bum go numb
    Let the bungo play you 'til you drop
    This banana never stop (never stop, never stop)
    Forget all your troubles and go with the flow
    Forget about whatever you may never know
    Like whether whatever you are doing is whatever you should
    And whether anything you do is every really any good
    And then forget about banana when it sticks in your throat
    And when they make you want to bellow but your stuck in a choke
    And you forget about the yell from the colorful men
    That'll make you take another and make a mock of your plan
    Bungale bungalo make up your mind and tell me no umm shh
    Well it's nine o'clock and it's getting dark
    And the sun is falling from the sky
    I've never left so early and you may wonder why
    Tomorrow morning on the plane
    No banana make you go insane
    Floating back to busy town
    No banana make you want to frown
    Do you want a banana? (Do you want a banana)
    Peel it down and go mm mm mm mm
    Do you want a banana?
    This banana for
    You

    Final, final thing: I am making that banana bread. I'm getting all of that prepared right now. Unfortunately, I cannot transmit the bread for Potassium to eat it -- like some sort of scene ripped straight out of Willy Wonka. However, I will give a decent review of how it tastes and the recipe to coincide with that.

    Yes, this does count as a WIP update. This is vital information that needs to get out there. For the people. For the fans. For the banana bread which will taste very good (hopefully).

    Also, one more thing: I think I got very lucky with SOUP last time and I don't think casual support will be possible. Sorry, friends.
