[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.

with the set items bieng:

-Footie pajamas with wrenches, sentries, or some winter themed item all on it with the flap in the back and an arrow pointing at it saying "Dispenser Here" but the belt is still on him. (I mentioned this before but completely forgot about my post and now i cant find it or wait you responded with)
-Also maybe some like messy hair for the engi. (Brown preferably). It could be called like Bee Cave Bedhead or you could name it something else. :P

Thank You!
I'll need some images for this.

I am not good at drawing so here are some pics from the internet:

1. Pajamas: I found one with snowflakes but you can change the images and stuff if you want as well. I think snowflakes look nice though.

2. Words & Back Flap: Maybe if you move the flap lower to make room for his belt it will be easier. I think the words would look nice right above the flap with an arrow pointing down.

3. Bedhead: Maybe kinda like this, but if you dont like you can change it to something else.

The pajama and overalls wont work on the TF2. They alter too much of the class color patterns. I'll pass on the bedhead idea either since it doesn't fit well with any of the classes.

Russian babushka scarf for the heavy? It could be wrapped around the head and tied under the chin.
I don't know if this has already been made, but a couple of snow globes as a misc for pyro. They would replace the grenades.
This idea has been done before and i think it can be made better. however, the babushka is mainly worn by russian women. I don't see the heavy wearing such even though he has a goofy demeanor. I'll pass on the snowglobe idea since it still too close to the x-mas theme and frankly it will be very hard to pull of the effects for that item.

Before reading my idea, I had this idea before I knew it was in Borderlands. So I'm sorry if its unoriginal now, I had no idea Borderlands had this until yesterday.

I had the idea of a watch that makes you invisible while setting out a decoy spy to fight off the enemies, and you uncloak 5 seconds after the decoy is killed... If anyone wants to give this a shot, then go ahead.

Again, I didnt know it was in Borderlands...
Regardless of where the idea came from, i cannot make gameplay ideas. I can only make cosmetic items.

I just had the idea of a cool christmas item for the demo. http://s1.directupload.net/file/d/3060/qtidpy9j_png.htm I call them "Father Christmas' Booties". They either use the primary slot or a misc slot, I'm not sure yet, you can decide.You could add some bells like the boots for the scout have.I also have the idea of a new christmas noise maker with unlimited uses.It plays the sound of father christmas saying "hoow, hooow , hoow." and/or "Merry christmas" :D
If you have more questions, add me so we can talk. :)

They don't fit the color scheme of the class. Generally, the more colorful items are placed on the torso upward and the darker more pale colored items are placed on the torso downward.

First of all, I have to say that I'm a very big fan of your work and you make great items!

I had an idea for a Pyro hat. I'm not sure what the exact name for this hat is, but I call it a "double-pointed stocking hat". The colors would be either one half blue and one half red, or one half would be yellow, and the other half would depend on the team you are on (so blue or red).
The hat would be very long and would have jiggle bone physics to make it look like it floats in the wind.

Pictures for refernece:
http://www.themouseworks.com/images/HAT-PHOTOS/Santa/Long-vintage-santa-hat.jpg
(The hat would look like this but have different colors and two points instead of one.)

http://www.comicvine.com/kirby/29-57738/all-images/108-213765/mirror_kirby/105-1603563/
(My hat idea would look a lot longer and less thick, but I thought that this image would give you an idea for colors. Also note that my hat idea would be different from hats that jesters wear, which are shorter and more round.)
thanks for the idea. However, i think the hat is not popular enough in the main stream consciousness to warrant creating the item.

sorry, this does not fit every class and the snowman does not fit any TF2 reference.

i'll pass on this one too. Snowglobes are too x-mas-y still for my taste.
