    Hi everyone!
    This is my very first self-made poster-overlay matching the TF2-Style. It is inspired by a Futurama poster I found recently. Because I love the sarcasm of it, I recreated it using TF2 characters to fit into my recent map, that I will release later the week.


    Thanks to Nineaxis for his nice poster overlay tutorial, which helped me a lot.

    Feel free to use it in your map, but please send me a message if you do. thanks

    How-To-Install:
    Extract sign_paidjob.vmt and sign_paidjob.vft to X:\YourSteamFolder\steamapps\YourSteamName\team fortress 2\tf\materials\custom\

    Enjoy
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    looks good except for the text. The text is like, too effectful.

    I agree with you.

    It's too modern, maybe the original tf2 font fits in?

    Doesn't look terribly out of place to me.

    I think this text would fit better than the tf2 font if the effects would be gone.
    (The game is based 1968 and Photoshop effects weren't there at that time)

    I actually didn't use that many effects on the fonts. Do you complain about the soft shadow behind the letters in the box? I tried to stick with the poster tutorial here and only left it behind when I thought it might fit.

    I accidentally merged the source *.psd-file so I have to create a totally now version in order to make a blu-version. But this isn't such a big problem as long as the text and the layout remains the same. I only have to take some suitable BLU-character shots. Maybe some other classes will be presented on it to create some kind of variation. For Example, Spy - Heavy - Medic instead of Scout - Engineer - Sniper.

    But if you have any suggestions for improvements, especially for the font (that most of you seem to dislike), tell me.
