Boomsta, is your vacation over yet?

@boomsta: Anyway, why not call this set "The Order of the Hospitaler Knights" set, or "Das Hospitalerordensritter-Set"??
Knusperfrosch 23 jun 2013 om 9:04vm 
@boomsta: "TF2 is a game about pure stereotyping." Not quite. It plays with certain stereotypes, but not all of those stereotypes are national (otherwise Heavy would be the stereotype alcoholic Russian). They're more like archetypes. Scout is the archetype of the young, brash loudmouth with a big ego, but how would that be a "stereotypical" Bostonian? What would Pyro be a stereotype of??
Valve is using these pesonality traits like tropes. The curt German, the "Russian bear", the good ol' Texan boy howdy, the crazy xenophobic American gun-nut. Otherwise Valve would have put Medic in Lederhosen and have him dance the Schuhplattler from the beginning. But how you think using random German words fulfills a German "stereotype" is beyond me. That's like naminf an Asian character "Fumanchushaolinchowchowriceballs". Ouch.

It's ok, I look forward to your new model, and I hope you give medic more armor to the medieval medic set.

I am probably gonna redo this model pretty soon anyways so I can use the new uploader, so look out for that. It might be a bit though since I am on vacation right now though, sorry!

Hey boomsta, the mod you gave us is kind of broken, the boots still work, but whenever I'm blu, the gloves still look red, can you please fix this?
boomsta  [auteur] 21 jun 2013 om 10:58nm 
I know what it means, dude. The reason for random words like these is that I just can't think of any actual clever names, and Valve changes names often regardless. Just look at many other of my . If you find this insulting then you need a bit thicker skin.

As for the style of it being not being clear as to what it is, does it really matter that much? TF2 is a game about pure stereotyping. Everything in this game involves stereotypes, not being historically accurate. Now I understand the question about why the Christian crosses, I was just following the art really, and that is about it. The art was made by somebody else who didn't even intend for it to be modeled.

Er, yes, the name *does* mean something in German.
"Windschutzscheibenwaschanlage" means the "windscreen[UK]/windshield[US] washer system". The thing that spits fluid onto your car's windshield to help the windshield wiper wipe it.

Not sure what this has to do with (clearly Christian) crosses as decoration? Nothing. So why did you pick that as he model's name? Just to have a random German word? You are aware that TF2 has a lot of German players, yes? It's a bit insulting.

The reskin looks good, except for the Christian crosses. Those are obviously not Red Cross symbols. Is this supposed to be a Prussian-Empire-style or Habsburg-Empire-style outfit? Rosicrucian Knights? Why not just stick to the Asclepius staff-and-snake symbol of healers?

"These boots were made from the contents of a windshield washer or 'squeegee.'"
Billy Mays' Clone 11 mrt 2013 om 6:19nm 
Well according to google translate, about the closest thing to this would be Winsheild Washer apperantly :p Still love the item regardless.
ChineseMassProduction 10 mrt 2013 om 9:14vm 
Unlike the gloves, which i think need work, this seems to look fine to me. the set would go well with the berliners bucket helm if you asked me. maybe you should put it on the pics?
DrySumi 9 mrt 2013 om 6:22nm

Serird | Birthday 6 mrt 2013 om 2:31vm 
The boots color (and the gloves) should be like the backpack color.

But, anyway, really nice work. :)

I saw the sketches on Tumblr once and I thought a skin would be awesome. THIS is way better than what I could have ever imagined.

The name should probably be fleshed out a bit, but otherwise, 10/10.

The moment you don't need a translator since you're german yourself, *damn proud*
Looks good, now some knee protection.
UberGames 4 mrt 2013 om 1:18nm 
@az2997 I personally have no problem with the cross what i meant to say is that sometimes people just get really protective about this kind of stuff so valve would avoid it to avoid contraversey. i personally think the set looks amazing, im sorry if i was unclear about what i was trying to say.
