    Yeah, I feel like posting this...

    It's not ugly like the Female Scout if you're thinking that.

    Model: Click Here.

    Re-Worked Skin: Click Here as well.

    Soundpack: Coming Soon, they say. :U

    It looks like if they took a sample model of an anime chick and then they reeskined it. Would be better if they actually think of doing one from scratch.

    The day I know how to export valve weightmaps and recompile them I'll make an engineer model of Dr. Ivo Robotnik

    The TF2 themed skin is pretty good, but the model still falls short. What's with the mask? Oh and I question the thigh-high socks/tights/whatnot. and the eyes. the eyes fail.

    Regardless of visual quality, the sad fact is that all female character models fail massively as soon as any voice clips get triggered.

    PROBLEMS

    hand's are bigger then a Volkswagen Beetle

    IMPOVEMENTS

    It would be passable, especially with that reskin, and I think the model herself is actually very cute. But that dumb surgical mask makes me think "anime girl" when I could (and should) be thinking "Asian girl".

    I thought nothing could get uglier than that anime-haired "Guybrush Threepwood with boobs" monstrosity created by a guy who loved the phong shader too much. I was wrong.

    This is just downright hideous, especially the mask which seems totally out of place. Can we get a SINGLE decent female model that isn't anime? "Cartoony" doesn't necessarily mean anime. If you think it's impossible to make a female equivalent of the classes in TF2's art style without it being anime, you're sadly mistaken. In the meantime, until people come to this revelation that all the TF2 players who CAN'T model know, I'd appreciate it if you'd stop advertising these sorts of things.

    EDIT: I spoke too soon. It's much, MUCH better with the new reskin. I'll even overlook the anime bit and assume it's keeping in tone with TF2's stereotypes, in this case, that there's lots of famous Japanese architects and engineers. Still, the mask has to go.

    I'd rather have it look like Mrs. Engi, not a random anime chick with a wrench.
