Will it have longer hit range than a bat?

I agree with Crunchy, make it have these stats;
+15 health on wearer
+30% swing speed
-40 damage
-Breaks after 8 hits

AWESOME! make it on impact i does lots of damage and the stick is weak

Wicked sick man. Add it Valve! I'd buy it.
DuoVisen Feb 23, 2013 @ 2:28pm 
Now this seems like it could be fun. personal I think the 8 ball should cause a knockback effect. like 1 ball hitting into another
«Rancid Jack» Feb 22, 2013 @ 11:10am 
Surely this particular melee weapon should be called the 'FAR CUE'?

it should have a longer range than normal

How you downlaod TF2 stuff?
mnemonic device: Feb 18, 2013 @ 3:03pm 
YES, this is obviously a scout weapon
Potatoo Feb 17, 2013 @ 11:32pm 
i dont think it needs the ball so much. but it is still cool with it

Ball:
+10 Damage Bonus
+ Opponents more likely to be stunned closer in range
- Ball will drop faster than usual
Stick:
+20% Weapon Speed
-10% Damage Bonus

There's nothing like a good game of "stick hitting colored balls" (that's what they used to call it back then)- and by "stick hitting colored balls" we mean "stick ramming into opposing team's testicles". Go get em, pool shark!

+ Ball is charging faster
-Damage is reduced by 20%

And yet ... Valve, add it!! :)

Nope, they're all the same settings. Itemtest is just a poorly lit map and I happened to not be positioned somewhere where a highlight was evident
ruediix Feb 16, 2013 @ 2:33pm 
Well, if the first image is the newer texture settings, and the in-game photos are older, before the first set of texture and shader tuning, than it's already been dealt with.
zach L  [author] Feb 16, 2013 @ 8:32am 
Sorry, I'm just used to using Source's lexicon for simplicity's sake. You're right though.

Regardless, I still see no problem with the phong I have now
ruediix Feb 16, 2013 @ 4:33am 
Actually, Phong Shading parameters, are shader parimiters. Phong shading is implemented using pixel of fragment shaders, thus it's parimeters are shader parameters, even if you don't write the shader program, or create the shader data, telling the 3D Modeling program and video driver to do so for you is still creating a shader. Even if you attache the shader parameters for prewritten shader programs to another object that isn't a shader, the shader parameters themselves are still part of your shaders.

You may only change a few variables, but because you put values in those variables, 2 maps are created by your export program as part of LOD conversion, and several additional shader programs are enabled on the end user's machine to render those maps.

you know youre not supposed to fight with that cue, right? it might go break(some skulls)...
Austin Feb 15, 2013 @ 12:08pm 
I WANT!!!! It looks great and seems like it could be a lot of fun for pool/billards players
♠ Mighty Mike ♠ Feb 15, 2013 @ 11:07am 
i love billiards so valve add this plz :DD
dkg303 Feb 15, 2013 @ 8:35am 
Thanks!
zach L  [author] Feb 15, 2013 @ 8:10am 
There are reskins of most of my submissions on gamebanana
dkg303 Feb 14, 2013 @ 9:12pm 
This is great. Add a download to reskin the sandman in desc please. I will love you forever.
Among the Marked.j2 Feb 14, 2013 @ 8:47pm 
I like Billiards, so this has my vote
LEEDLE LEEDLE LEEDLE LEE Feb 14, 2013 @ 8:12pm 
how about "the game ender"
the ball blinds enemy for a certai amout of time depending on distance
zach L  [author] Feb 14, 2013 @ 6:53pm 
Those aren't shaders, they're parameters, but a bumpmap is definitely not at all necessary here. I don't know which part you think looks square but I doubt a bump map would help. I think what you're seeing is the weapon lightwarp, used on all weapons, that is very high contrast and you're confusing it for a hard edge because I assure you it's sufficiently round

ruediix Feb 14, 2013 @ 6:12pm 
And yes, Phong shading, possibly along with a bump map, is what would be best to use.
ruediix Feb 14, 2013 @ 5:59pm 
By shaders I mean the bump map in particular (one of several shaders.)

The issue is that it looks a little "squarish." instead of round.
Chanper Feb 14, 2013 @ 5:20pm 
Hey mexican which program you use for making workshop items?
zach L  [author] Feb 14, 2013 @ 5:06pm 
I don't get the connection frankly
Paul83637 Feb 14, 2013 @ 3:38pm 
This should be for demoman, not scout...
zach L  [author] Feb 14, 2013 @ 2:45pm 
I think it has plenty of polies and dunno what you mean by shaders unless you mean phong settings or something but I'm pretty sure they're fine
ruediix Feb 14, 2013 @ 2:17pm 
Needs a better high LOD, and better shaders. However, the idea is very good and worth a good thumbs up!
MachoRoss Feb 14, 2013 @ 8:35am 
Awesome! Steam add this as a weapon!
[GIJoe] D. Burning Feb 14, 2013 @ 8:24am 
i think this thing must be longer?
TheMuumimamma[-_-] Feb 14, 2013 @ 3:13am 
hyvä

bom trabalho

well i wished this item will be at TF2 :D nice job
Meme Machine Feb 12, 2013 @ 11:24pm 
Since a cue stick is longer, lighter and thinner than a baseball bat, the stats could be:

Pros:
+50% faster swing
+20% longer range of swing
+15% projectile damage

Cons:
-20% projectile speed (8-balls heavier lol)
slight projectile deviation (try hitting an 8-ball with a cue stick in real life)
S t e b a n o Feb 12, 2013 @ 7:52pm 
+50% longer hit
+10% more damage
- 25% slower swing

Just sum ideas, nice job :D
Jack Bauer Feb 12, 2013 @ 5:24pm 
Careful, if you get that 8-ball in before sinking the other ones, you're gonna lose.
Yreisolgakig Feb 12, 2013 @ 3:48pm 
I approve this item.
Vortigaunt Sing-Along Feb 12, 2013 @ 2:41pm 
love it, really funny. but no pool ball.
Duwahkeen Feb 12, 2013 @ 12:07am 
This is just a re-skinning of the Sandman, right? .-.
I still liek it tho.
Russish U.S.S.™ Feb 11, 2013 @ 11:36pm 
круто
SparkyChu Feb 11, 2013 @ 6:59pm 
you know, the stick is really thin and hard to hit a ball with as a baseball bat BUT i love it!
