Minecraft-Styled Sniper Stock Weapons Release
square guns by square guy
Last jam, I made the Classic in a style reminiscent of modern Minecraft 3D-modeled items (like the Trident, the Spyglass, etc).
This year, I decided to one-up myself and make not one, but three models in the same timespan - all of the Sniper's stock weapons (Sniper Rifle, SMG and Kukri)!
All three weapons adhere to Minecraft's limitations in the model (i.e. only 22.5-degree rotation increments, sticking within a 3x3x3 block range) and utilise 16x16 textures, though do have custom-rigged moving parts to function like their standard TF2 variants.
Sniper RifleThe bolt rotates!
SMGFeatures functioning magazine and charging handle movement!
Unlike the other two, rather than using a more complex model, I decided to be "traditional" and model the Kukri as if it were a standard Minecraft item - a flat sprite (though extruded to replicate the "generated" model format).
To install, simply pop the downloaded .vpk into your tf/custom folder, as you would any other Team Fortress 2 mod.
And since they can have it (unlike the Classic)...
The SMG and Sniper Rifle have War Paint support!!!
(Dragon Slayer skin not included though.)
