    That is not anti-aliasing; you're literally just running it through a blur filter.

    What program are you using for this anyway? It's clearly capable of other decent-looking effects, just not rendering text or clip art smoothly.

    I'm using paint.net for most of it and GIMP for the background layer, using a set of TF2-themed brushes I found. I'll try to see if I can make it look a bit better later.

    I asked Iibo a couple months back if she'd mind me taking over this pack. And so, I am finally getting around to dealing with it.

    How are people feeling about the current amount of content if it were sealed and uploaded today as a complete pack? Let's not let these great assets go to waste.

    This pack is full of awesome overlays and textures but it's missing a lot of snowy themed models. Snow blowers, bomb carts (with the exception being that one snow covered stock payload bomb), snow blowers on rails, etc.

    Please remember that the snowycoast assets are yours to incorporate into this collection.

    I again have to apologise for a lack of attention to this. I still intend to throw together all the assets we have collected into a pack but since @phi has been visiting for the past month I've been spending most of my time elsewhere.

    Expect something within the month, if I don't deliver then you guys can crucify me.

    Is that leak of radiant solar energy into the site background just on my monitor?

    You're not alone, that is solar energy leaking into the site background.

    Nah, I just messed up. I also think I drew the clouds a little bit too blurry. It's my first try at a skybox though, so I'll see what I can do.
