    To start off; full credit will be provided in the map's information and on the map if you make stuff for the map. Thanks for checking this out in advance!

    I'm working on a map that needs a few things in it... Mostly having to do with apples.
    -Small health Pack model that is a singular small Apple.
    -Medium Health Pack that is four apples, three at the bottom beside each other, one apple stacked on top of them.
    -Large Health Pack that is a very LARGE apple, making it distinguished from the rest that it is the large health pack.
    -A model of a singular apple with a stem, no leaf, so that I can put it on the branches of a tree model, making it look like an apple tree!

    The apples all need to be red in colour. Like that stereotypical juicy perfect kind of red that you usually see. Like in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That really nice kind of red... Kind of like that, or the image attached. As for the size of these apples, I'd say a little bigger than Fruit Shoot Sniper Hat would be nice, as if the model is too small, it wouldn't be noticeable as a health pack. Nobody would notice a tiny spinning apple. When it comes to the Large Health pack, I'd definitely make a different apple. One that looks more plump and juicy if possible. Hope I'm not asking for too much, and I thank you if you decide to give it a try! Thank you!

    Full pack should be a bushel of apples.

    Medium health pack as an apple pie? Maybe with an apple shaped crust cutout on the top of the rest of the crust.

    I actually second the idea of the Large Healthpack being a large basket or bushel of apples. Very nice idea!

    I'd love to try and make these, though I don't know anything about converting models to a Source engine format x3
    If I have time, I'll give it a shot!

    @Gravidea
    Hey, I've just made this (presumably the smol Healthkit):

    Kept it pretty low-poly, just showing it because I'm open to suggestions for how to approach it for texturing. I can make it more exaggerated/cartoony if desired ^^

    Really tried to go for that plump round look without making it a sphere-
    [​IMG]

    Here's the colour palette, I'm thinking - just an idea, it could be more or less saturated:
    [​IMG]

    I'm thinking a bright, almost pinkish red, but maybe with small patches with a hint of turquoise green, to match the stock healthkits? (And since apples can be red/greenish)
    It's your call! Also, any thoughts on stuff like health crosses? Or should they just stay regular ol' apples?

    @Floof Waffles First off, thank you for putting the time and effort into this! I have to say that it looks really good so far, and I'm glad you'd put your time into something like this. Moving on, the whether it's cartoony or not doesn't matter too much to me as it looks quite good so far. What I'm looking for is just an apple, nothing too over the top, and it seems you've got a good idea of what I wanted right now! It's great!

    As for the colour, I think the red could be the slightest bit darker, just to give it that juicy bite-able feel to the colour, but I'm all for sneaking some green in there to give them that feeling you mentioned. When it comes to the health cross, I actually think that would be a good idea if you want to go for it! While a floating spinning apple might already make it obvious that it's something important, maybe having a white health cross would make it more obvious that it's a health pack. You could make it look like it was lazily painted onto the apple, or make it appear to be carved into it.

    Either way, what you do is much appreciated, and I can't wait to see where you go with this! Thanks for your hard work!

    Finished texturing it! I really wanted to give off the impression it was watercolour painted, I'm not sure if it's the right style for TF2 but here it is anyway-

    (Shown with flat shading. I'm not sure if the TF pickups are shaded by the engine at all, since they appear at full brightness even when in complete darkness)
    Yeah, didn't go for that partly turquoise look I was talking about in the end :p I was gonna put a cross sticker on it, but decided meh, maybe tomorrow

    Now, time to figure out how to even get it working with TF2 - I hope it looks up to snuff! Thoughts?

    @Floof Waffles It looks amazing! It kind of looks like something out a Disney film if I'm being honest, at least with the style. That being said, it does still look cartoony. I love it! I'm not sure how to move it to TF2, or even how to make it into a healthpack model, but I can't wait to see it when it gets there!

    Thanks so much! I'm really glad you like it!
    Now that you mention it, I guess it does look quite Disney-esque. Might be the combination of the smooth colour blends and the lil swirly thing on the stem.
    I might remove the swirly thing and add some brushstrokes to the apple to make it feel more TF2-y, then onto the other packs!

    @Floof Waffles Also as a side note, don't forget to make an apple with and without the cross if you decide too. I also plan on hanging it from trees to make them look like apple trees!

    Offer's still up if anyone wants to jump on it~
    Also no problem with that. Stuff happens and people forget. I figured if it happened, it happened, and if no one wanted to work on it, then whatever. I appreciate you trying though, and I'm sorry to hear that happened!

    Got the small one done first, the medium and large may take some more time (also my first time messing with animations!)
