    That's a beaut. Can you make the teamcoloured ones more intesne, though?

    Right now they look pink and green.

    Oh yes, don't forget, if you need a custom fit, tell me the units, I'll try to fill that as soon as I can.

    I didn't notice these in Operative, were they there? I ask because from a structural standpoint they don't make a whole lot of sense. I can't think of a proper use for such a shape. o_O

    The difference is slight, but yes, take a look:

    I'm also using these colors from the TF2 palette:

    No, they weren't in operative. And structurally, they don't make a whole lot of sense. I'm not a structural engineer. o_O

    But, they would hold up a floor/wall combination at 90 degrees. Or a ceiling/wall combo as well.

    Can you make ones that bend the other way? So that they structrually make sense?

    If I made them, would you use them?

    Good point. =P

    I dunno, I suppose I would not. I'm just throwing it out there.

    Very nicely done. I could picture these being used to wrap around a bundle of pipes that enter a room from one wall and go out the other, with the I-beams dividing up them up into three separate portions. Or even to support a skybox (as in stadium) looking down onto some big piece of spytech.

    July 12: Fixed the collision meshes...Lightwave's SMD exporter doesn't like to create correct collision meshes or animated sequences...despite my love for the software, I had to use the free XSI mod tool to export working collision meshes for these models.

    Updated the download file...if you downloaded these models, I suggest you update your files to the newest version. With this fix, you'll be able to walk through the negative spaces of the model, should you want to. Previously, the collision mesh doesn't work this way.

    Example:

    Sorry, this new layout is still a bit confusing to get used to. I thought it was recently posted.

    It's very easy to see when the threads were posted, I'd appreciate you being more careful when you reply to threads.

    Apologies, I will pay more attention. But why do old things show up on front page, like volkar and some other old maps, I automatically assumed since it was on front page it was new/being worked on.

    Since we just ported over to the new site everything is listed as new.

    Pay attention to the post dates and you'll be fine.
