[Ronin's Workshop Idea Thread] Got a TF2 idea? Let us listen to them
Update:
I removed the suspended tag. I'll be reading from here onward. However, i will not be able to read everything. I'll let everyone know when and if you need to repost your ideas. I also started removing the ideas pending that i know i cant work on anymore. If you dont see it in the pending list, sorry i cant work on them anymore.

As always, I will contact the person if i choose his/her idea. Thanks for those who stuck on to this thread.

That is it for now.

BASIC RULES:
  • Create an ITEM idea.
  • Post your COSMETIC ideas on the comments.
  • Post an image of your idea.
  • Dont post Weapon, Taunts, Animations, Effects or Map ideas.

For those still reading on... We want to help the community get more involved in submitting items in the workshop. So if you think you have a good idea for an item for us to create for TF2, post them here and lets discuss them. If it's good we'll work on it. You will be creadited with at least 5% of the contributor shares and more if you work with the model itself. Posting pictures and raw renders are prefered. Please, post ideas for TF2 cosmetic items only, we cannot create maps, particle effects or weapons or stats at the moment.

Also, please do not add me in steam. Do not try and give me your idea in steam chat as well. It's not only going to take my time, it is also not safe. I cannot possibly keep track of everyone i talk to so there is very minimal possibility for me to credit you that way. If you feel that posting your idea publicly is not suitable for you or are afraid for the idea to stolen, then i'm sorry i cannot accept it privately.

Here's sample of a set i'm working on currently from a community idea.

i have an idea for a sniper weapon.
"The Unwelcome Surprise"
level 5 bayonet
-15% base charge rate for sniper rifle
-10% fire rate
instantaneous weapon switch between primary and this weapon
longer reach

Thanks for the input. I would prefer model design suggestions though.

The workshop is mostly for models only. Not much stats. Of course if you have made a model you are allowed to make suggestion stats. But of course Valve comes up with them.

Here's a simple one that surprisingly I did not find on the workshop:
A length of lead pipe for the scout as a bat. With a style that has barbed wire around the end.
If you want a throwable projectile with it I'd recommend a ball bearing.

It's simple, they could have picked it up on the battlefield, has a reputation as one of the best makeshift weapons out there and would fit the scout's character and the tf2verse.

Hey Ronin, I have an idea I'll pitch to you once I get some of the concept art nailed down better. I'm trying to learn to do this stuff myself.

By the way, here's a quick concept-art of that "Corporal Punishment" I told you about.[files.myfrogbag.com] I know you said it screams set piece but for the life of me I'm struggling to come up with a proper set for it.

I'd like to see a green tank themed sniper rifle, which retains a smaller version of a tank's barrel.

Nice idea Ronin. Keeps ideas off the shop page where they don't belong while giving people a place to express their ideas and possibly see them made real.
Big Shep Jul 26, 2012 @ 6:00am 
Ronin, you're being quite generous. Thanks for helping other people have ideas atleast submitted. You go out of your way for a lot of things and that really shows support to your fans, like me, I like your workshop creations. As well as everybody else who has taken the time and effort to make a descent model.

I generally try to avoid the "strapped together" style of items cuz if its not done well and doesn't make sense, it appears too contrived and tacked on to be a good idea. Also, these tropes are generally relegated to the pyro and probably some on the engie. Nice attempt though and could be interesting for some people to make.

i have an idea of a pyroland gun.....
the gumblaster! it looks like a flare gun (painted gold) with a glass ball full of gumballs!

I've got a hat for the sniper. I haven't come up with a name, but I think it's a good idea. It's the snipers default hat with a bullet hole through it, he was close... but you were closer.
patrick-johnson Jul 29, 2012 @ 11:33am 
I've also got ideas for a few other classes
patrick-johnson Jul 29, 2012 @ 11:39am 
For instance a misc item for the medic, It's the spys knife in his back with blood around it, you win this round
patrick-johnson Jul 29, 2012 @ 11:53am 
A hat for the Pyro, The Flamible Fedora. It's a light brown fedora that's scorched and smoldering around the edge, and bursts into flames when the pyro lands a criticle hit.
