    Hey there, after the portholes i decided to do something more universal and called it panels :eek:
    for myself i have some variations planned. are there maybe some special sizes that you'd absolutely like to have ? or maybe a 2nd texture version without the "paint chips" ? just tell me, i thought I'd ask before modeling this time :)

    here's the first one anyways:

    Make ones with common Hammer sizes. Like 64x128 or something.

    what does this "panel" actually do? It just looks like a plate in the wall with a clip...

    usually they are things like electrical boxes behind the panels.

    yes, something along the lines of what Bonafide said. some electric stuff inside ^^
    if anyone should have a proper refpic of a better grip or some gimmick, go ahead and share, i'd love to adapt it into the pack :)

    thanks for your feedback so far, guys !

    Can you make one where the 2 parts are separate? So like, one is the base with a few wires where the door would be, and the other is the actual door.

    Yeah, if you could make some partially open that would be nice.
    Cause the you could make a sort of fuse/electrics room.

    ok you guys, since i didn't fully understand what you meant with the wires i decided to do a bunch of versions, maybe there's one that you like in the end :)
    although it hasn't anything to do with my simple panels i planned to do, i still post it in here ;)

    holy hell, its so good that i also need to quote the picture :p
    really awesome
    but, a question, what´s the polycount on these?
    i see some round buttons and cables which look a bit expensive for a "minor" prop like that
    keep the polycount down and work with textures to get the nearly same effect of roundness
    keep it up, it´s fantastic

    its ~2000 triangles - which is about the same polycount as the siren or chair models have - also "minor" props, imo. before i started with my tf2 modeling i studied quite a bunch of original tf2 models to get a feeling for the work- and polyflow. I realized that they are quite heavy on the polycount-side which is because a lot lot lot of the details are modeled out. especially the buttons on all of the consoles and stuff. and since you won't be putting these fusebox 10 times in a row, it's alright, imo.
    i mean, one open is enough, everything else will be repetetive. the rest may be closed fuseboxes, which will have far less, so its all good in the end, in my opinion :)

    thx for all your feedback so far, guys !

    Those boxes are really good.
    Have 3 types: 1 without door, 1 with door partially open, 1 with door closed.
