    Any other Sonic fans out there?

    I got a Wii U purely because of Sonic Lost World. Though I admit the game isn't as good as it's past ones.

    Also oppinions and ideas on Sonic (maps and items) in TF2? Sega does have a Steam account and made Promo items for TF2 before, so I like to think a Sonic promo item set would be possible someday.

    That maps look well fun, is it on TF2maps download? And yeah, I know most say Sonic's quality of games are diminishing and didn't enjoy Sonic Lost World all that myself. I hate it when Sonic's games are regarded as "answer" to certain Nintendo games but this time round Sonic Lost World had so many comparisons to Mario games it was uncomfortable.

    I can't help but think that Nintendo have an influence over them in order to gain favour of it's customers.

    I myself working on a koth_greenhill map myself. Still yet to be finished and totally
    amateur work.

    Nah, the map is a CS:S map. The guy (Panzer) used to make TF2 surf maps but there wasn't much good skill surf community for TF2 for a while and he left to CS:S surf. Here's surf_fast on gamebanana btw.

    The map I am making is of course based on Green Hill Zone. As it's my first ever map of course there are plenty of amateur mistakes (I can barely get it to run at times) and it needs skybox and lighting and would like to know how to import GMod models to be used in the map such as trees and springs. Plus I think the lay out is a bit too big for a KotH map but if players don't want to take the main path to the capture point there are plenty of other more direct ways.

    I don't think there is enough, or any TF2 maps on Sonic which is why I am working on it.

    I've been a Sonic "fan" since I watched AoSTH (in Swedish) when I was 8 or something, and I still enjoy to play both the old and the new games. I actually really liked Sonic Unleashed (PS3) a few years ago when that was released, and when Sonic Colors was released I got a Wii almost exclusively to play that. Now I occasionally play Sonic Generations (PC) and Sonic 3 & Knuckles, but I'm not going to get a Wii U for Lost World, it doesn't look particularly interesting anyway. I also love All-Stars Racing Transformed (PC), though I don't know how much that counts as a Sonic game.

    I basically like both the character and the unique gameplay of the Sonic games, but I'm not as big of a "fan" as I used to be, TF2 has been my favorite game since I got it in 2008 and since then I've been a lot more interested in First Person Shooters.

    And obviously I've been dreaming about a TF2 Sonic promo for a long time, I think they could probably get away with adding a pair of Sonic shoes for the Scout or something as a promo associated with some new Sonic game release for PC, but until that happens I don't see them doing it.

    Good luck on making a Sonic themed map, by the way! All the ones I've seen so far have honestly been kinda shit, not least because the extremely vibrant colors really don't fit into the TF2 style. I think you could make it better by experimenting with some fancy stuff with the lighting and detailing though.

    I would love some Sonic exclusive items for the Scout, such as Sonic's shoes or signature spikes that come in either hedgehog blue or echidna red.

    Perhaps Heavy and Engineer can share a misc called "McNosehair" which is Dr. Eggmans glasses and 'stache.

    As for my map, yeah I'll also be using vibrant colours since Green Hill zone is brightly coloured. But I'll be making my own textures for them than simply ripping them from the games as well as be using some TF2 default textures (Would help if I understood "alpha"). However since I haven't got displacements down, it doesn't have that earthy rugged look. Plus the map is too wet so need to lower the water levels but also need to make proper boundaries and decoration to the map. Oh, and skybox and lighting. But thanks, I hope to encourage more TF2 map makers to contribute Sonic maps and have 'em all over TF2.

    An Eggman misc would be pretty cool, but I think huge blue spikes going out of Scout's head would be a bit too... much.

    Yeah that's definitely too obvious for a TF2 promo :p

    Hehe, well, maybe a Sonic hat could be possible, if it looks more like the hat I got than actually like Sonic then maybe.

    But if not, at least Sonic's shoes for Scout. Though I doubt they'll be as pure red as Sonic's or, if Sonic's hat, as blue as he is.

    Heavy and Engineer with glasses, nose and 'stashe like Dr. Eggman I can see that happening.
