    The best entry so far - this theme has always been very strong in my opinion, ever since that detailing contest.

    I enjoy this theme alot. I also thought tf2 had alot of brewery props that were never used correctly. Also, I want your vine props.

    It's simple, yet unique.
    It's beautiful, and I love it :D

    I do wonder what you will do about the pit of death around the control point though.

    What's a disp?

    And given that I am unable to find a similar texture, I suspect its custom (one way or another).

    I suspect it means "displacement".

    By the way, someone on interlopers.net shared this link regarding ivy:

    http://graphics.uni-konstanz.de/~luft/ivy_generator/

    Some freaking amazing looking results, but unfortunately far too high poly to use for TF2. Still, might be a springboard for further ideas.

    Thanks. I'll poke around with it, but it should at least be possible to reduce the polys for TF2 (namely by eliminating most of the branches).

    I'm still trying to figure out how to USE the program, I've only gotten it to gen ivy on the included model twice, so I have no idea why it works sometimes and not others.

    Edit: had to download the 74 MB tutorial video. If you double click it creates a root for it to start growing from. Man, that needs to be in the documentation. x..x

    Woah that's awesome.:O

    But I really wouldn't recommend using that for TF2 even if you try to lower the polycount. It's not going to set you up with a suitable texture, and when you want low-poly foliage you build it much differently than cgi-quality foliage.
