    The guys at Valve sure are crazy. :D






    Edit: Even though this is not made by them, so you are crazy too.

    Yeah, and I used the teleporter picture from TF2wiki.

    Also, the original convention picture had Nokia signs instead of SpyTech. :)

    Using the black and white grain worked really well because it alters light and shadow in a way that helps to blend away any smudges and blends that would be a bit more apparent.

    I don't think many people even realize the pictures were altered at all.

    I think a few people may not even realize it's faux - I don't get many comments on any of the forums, and when I do it's usually like, "Wtf...?!?"

    I'm also responsible for www.reliableexcavationdemolition.com.

    Is that good or bad? Nobody has ever responded to me by posting, what I will assume to be, an unripe, laughing pear.

    No. I've never seen it, and quite frankly, never want to see it again. :)

    You should definitely make a poster overlay out of this.

    What specs? Let me know the size and format, and it's done. Also, what do i have to do to make this into a spray again? It's been a while. I'm also really excited about the BLU site design - which, right now is just a template, but if you want to view it then go to http://www.buildersleagueunited.com/blu.asp. Once that's done, I finish up SpytechIndustries.com and activate the application forms on both BLU and RED. You'll choose a side, get a spending bonus based on your current total points in-game, and then we'll take it from there. I have a stock market game, based on the four stocks featured in the SpyTech ticker - and I have a few ideas on other things you can spend and wager your [fake] money on.

    I spent a lot of time mapping, and feel that this is the best way I can contribute to the community until I have more time. So hopefully people will start to "get it" once there's more to interact with on the sites.

    Wow, I thought this was leaked from Valve, as was spytechindustries.com...

    Amazing work.

    (Have you considered applying for a job there?)

    Thanks! :)

    That's kinda the idea. I mean, I'm 35 and I have a good job already - but I don't feel there's anything wrong with building an online portfolio of community-oriented TF2 material and eventually presenting it to them.

    Ultimately, once the system and mini-game are fully realized, it would be cool to have the concept to be integrated with the Steam Communities somehow - even if it's not my code directly.
