Description
Updated!
- I made the file hierarchy actually fit that of the weapons already in-game, so that's nice, but only really relevant for any Valve employees passing by.
- The texture has changed! I feel this one fits into the TF2 style a little better.
- VMT files have been refined to better suit the materials the model is trying to portray.
- As this is coming to somewhat of a close, I will provide you with download links to replace both the default flamethrower and the Degreaser. Just going to say in advance though, the backburner looks pretty funny if you replace the default thrower.

Comments on the model:
-------------------------------
This was RhikoruNa’s idea that got the whole set started. I thought it was pretty awesome because it really fits the Pyro’s aim to build a weapon out of anything he can find.

Game Mechanic Idea:
---------------------------
We had originally thought that perhaps an alt-fire blast could remove statuses such as Jarate or Mad Milk by “toasting” them off. The idea of toasting the heavy’s Sandvich also crossed our minds, but other than that, we don’t have much. It did dawn on us last minute that this really has no method of airblasting per se. Perhaps the toaster merely stores hot air and releases it? Who knows.

Thanks for posting! I appreciate it. Phong masks are still sort of... foreign to me. Stil trying to iron that out. Haven't quite gotten the hang out the whole reflectivity aspect of it and all.

I have downloaded the skin and played with it for a day now so here's my review:

The concept is purely nice and is completely original and valve would definitely take this in to consideration. However the detail, texture, and depth are certainly lacking. Take the belt for instance, it doesnt show signs of having the texture of a belt, it looks more plastic if anything. To be honest the whole flamethrower looks plastic close up. and the shines are lacking too, the toaster should have a bit more of a sheen to it since it is metal, and the screws look a bit halfassed it doesnt have any metallic detail nor texture to it. and the stalk of the flamethrower that connects to the toaster doesnt have a noticable texture its very plain, look at the regular flamethrower for texture examples, to a compare and contrast and use references of 3d objects for lighting and depth. Goodluck! :D
P.S. Fix the lighting detail for it too.
