    Hi!
    If anyone here has played TF2 zombie mod, they will have noticed the lack of props that can be used as barricades. Map makers therefore usually resort to the HL2 "Dr.Breen's" vending machine. I would rather have a more 'TF2ish' barricade...
    SO, moddlers... I pose you this challenge:
    Can you make me a 'Cracky Pop' vending machine? I'm sure it could be used in many other maps as well.

    Details:
    • I would quite like the vending machine to look a bit more cheerful than a regular one... more bright colours, mabye reds and yellows, to fit into the TF2 universe
    • I would also like it if two models were made, one brand spankin' new, and one looted; it's glass smashed and the Cracky Pop stolen, paint chipped off the sides. Mabye one with an out of order sign?
    • As this will be a barricade, please texture all sides as it will not be up against a wall
    • It should be about the same size as the HL2 vending machine
    • (Optional) As I will probably have more than one vending machine in the map, mabye a 'Cracky Pop Lite' machine? Or one with a different colour

    Hope this isn't too much to ask, but I'm just trying to be detailed :) I'm sure the whole community would benefit from this.

    Here's a good picture of a 60's vending machine, for reference:

    Yeah, I'm going to do this model, but on the condition that it fits in with the other stock TF2 props. You said it should be the same dimensions as the hl2 vending machine? My two questions there are this: what are those dimensions (I can look them up), and are you aware that TF2's scale is slightly larger than hl2? I can end up making two versions of the model, one that is tf2 scale, and one that will fit the dimensions of the hl2 vending machine, so it can be used as a replacement.

    I'll also be using the example as provided by nineaxis.

    There's actually a pretty nice machine already in this pack.

    Where the hell did the bottles come out in these things?

    I remember some models had a door, you put in your money, and open the door and take ONE...you were on a trust basis. Kind of like newspaper dispensers.

    Myself I'd go for something a little bit more obviously distinct from the Pepsi and Coke trademarks.

    Is Jimi Jam supposed to be soda, or jam? It has a lemon in the logo so I'm not sure.

    Just to update with some of the ideas being thrown around...
    It would be cool if it dispensed bonk, the spy's cigarettes, etc etc
    Here is a pic of the spy's cig machine, if anybody is interested:

    BTW, you would think that VALVe would have the model, as the used it for meet the spy... Or are the videos not made that way?

    Honestly...forgot about it, or put it off until later. But I'll still attempt it in the future. I apologize for the lack of progress.
