[Ronin's Workshop Idea Thread] SUSPENDED! Got a TF2 idea? Let us listen to them
It's been going on for a while and it must be addressed officially in this thread. It has been increasingly difficult for me to make items for TF2 due the time i have in real life. Because of this it was also difficult for me to take any ideas and work on them.

Effective immediately, i will be suspending my activity in this thread indefinitely.

Thank you for everyone that suggested and posted in this thread and i apologize if couldn't comment on your ideas. I will be making more items though at a very slow pace and I will leave this thread open in case that i may need to look for ideas. I will contact the person if i choose his/her idea.

That is it for now.

BASIC RULES:
  • Create a 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.

Badges are normally off limits for valve and promos only. This sponge idea does not make sense in my opinion.

The first would be the bullseye and would look like a bullseye. The other style would be the bull's eye and would be a literal bull's eye and would look kinda like this http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3579/3458473669_4b02916158.jpg.
The image is unavailable.
sorry about that, try this one http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs49/f/2009/215/9/a/Bull_Calf_Eye_6_by_Kibble22.jpg
i'll pass on this one too. Models under the sniper glasses are RARELY visible. Neither of the styles makes sense as well.

3. A sledge behind a back (on any class or on somebody certain)
4. A backpack on a scout with sticking-out educational accessories
5. A bag with tablets on the physician
6. A cap on a scout with the fan and the solar battery
7. Stickybomb launcher, shooting pumpkins
Please post images of your idea otherwise its near unlikely that i can work on any of the ideas.
1. Which kind of sweater? Keep in mind that the current scout shirt as folded sleeves that we cannot delete.
2. This has no relation to the scout at all other than him using the animation.
3. Already suggested this before. Passed on it.
4. Already made a scout bag.
5. Which kind of backpack? Is it a single strap bag? does it have pockets.
6. Does not have any remote relation to the scout at all.
7. Someone already made this idea. Not interested in silly items such as this.

1. The bag may be doable. I'll need to think about it.
2. The sweater will disrupt the colors on the scout.
3. The bandage is too dull and uninteresting.
4. I'd rather not make occult items.
5. I don't know what that wolf rag is for.

If you decide to model it, it can be a sweater like the one I posted above, obviously team-colored and zipped open to expose the default t-shirt. This would complement a quantity of popular Scout items, since many of them have an urban-like theme. Sure the short sleeves will not be visible, but they have accepted the Track Terrorizer, which completely omits the default t-shirt. I was visualizing it to be a year-round item with a simple design, but I am totally fine if you decide to make it a holiday item.
It's been attempted before as well. Still the problem lies on the scout's folded sleeves. That will still clip out of the sweater. The track terrorizer does not omit the default shirt. It only cleverly adds a neck portion and zip lines and sleeve extensions which are folded as well that hide the clipping under it.

For the pyro (halloween set)

First thing : I know you have an egyptian set for the pyro , but that fully not the same
Second : I know the scout have a pretty mummy hat , but the mummy thing is more fitting to the pyro

The mummy item for the pyro does not go well with any of his existing items. With that, it will need to stand alone on its own to garner interes, which i don't think it can. It doesn't relate to the pyro either. people would not readily think that it makes sense for the class.

The reason why we went with the Osiris set for the pyro is because of the fire reference. We thought it was cool to add a pharaoh hat but it does not make any more sense than the osiris head dress.

This one just came to me randomly, a green onion as a bat for the scout. maybe shoot a normal onion as altfire.
The shaving reference was done numerous times already. I'll pass on the weapon.

Some night vision googles for the soldier! That would be awesome!
Uncle Grumpskin 38 Sep 28, 2012 @ 6:13pm 
How about a jai alai bat for the scout?

http://i.imgur.com/bzfSe.jpg

It could also be just a normal bat, but carved in the middle and a very sharp point at the end.
Uncle Grumpskin 38 Sep 28, 2012 @ 6:18pm 
Also, how about a pogo stick as a melee weapon for the scout?

http://i.imgur.com/3lGLE.jpg

it could be broken at one end so it's not so big.

Gentlemen and Mentlegen alike, I present to you, The MONOCULUS! Launcher!
http://s1322.beta.photobucket.com/user/TheNoobThatWas/media/monoculuslauncher_zps24f5df1b.png.html?
Tweak the design as much as you like, just give credit.
I kind of wanted it to look like one of those crazy sci-fi machines but with the MONOCULUS! eye on the front. Hoped for some lights on it.

The Fruit Shoot
Level 5 Lunchbox

The idea of this is that it is basically Fruit Soda, with actual fruits. Or supposedly with actual fruits. Who knows? So a Soda can (or bottle for a change) with a fruity theme.

Effect: Boosts the Scout's health to 250, but rapidly falls over a period of seconds.
In order to recharge (so that you can't just spam it) you have to deal damage. A relatively large total is needed.

My Idea: TAUNT slot. "Stop Drop -n- Roll"

We have all had some random pyro nub barely scratch us with flamethrower and we burn forever? Teammate took that medipack they didnt even need? ragen?

Stop Drop N Roll Taunt ! ... you would roll on the ground and extinguish the flames.
(could incorporate some sounds or dust effects ..etc)

I don't see this being... unbalanced, because during taunts... well you cant' move and you could just be shot or lit back on fire.

I personally think this would be an excellent idea. I believe it would also sell very well.

With the high five taunt...laugh taunt....medic taunt... they sell well and simply do nothing.
This would be useful.

Pyros could also use it to taunt their crispy victims.

I do not have the first inclination as how to to start such an idea. Or I would do it myself and submit it to the workshop.

© I Claim rights to this idea. The previously mentioned 5% of shares is acceptable.

A spray someone made even:

again, great idea, will be profitable.
Trip[ABK] Sep 29, 2012 @ 3:56pm 
my next idea: Weapon, "Anti-Sapper"

Simple idea but, I think it would be a cool addition to the game, especially with valve finally adding a new sapper... (red tape) (new engi pda would be nice also)

But essentially, the concept of the weapon would be to either Stop enemy sappers until the engi comes back to save his buildings. Could either ... slowly remove enemy sapper .... or just .. pause it... Have some kind of -10% sapper time on non friendly buildings. Or w/e valve would decide. as far as looks/models/textures ... that would be absolutely up to you.

But the concept of the weapon/idea, I fell is applicable to TF2.

© I Claim rights to this idea. The previously mentioned 5% of shares is acceptable.


(as per my mention of a new engi pda... a PDA 5000 or some...name ..but a new pda with faster wep switch/building selection would be cool...)
