    ...was building bombcart models. There's nothing like it, and frankly there aren't enough of them. So many pl and plr maps and so few bombcart model varieties.

    So I'm proposing this: Let's build some! I suggest the following:

    • If you can model, let's make some! Let's have a build-off, build some sweet bombcarts and submit them for public consumption.
    • If you can't model, but can draw, and have a sweet idea, submit a design here, to this thread--maybe spark an artist's interest and collaborate with him/her and build a sweet bombcart model.
    • If you're making plr or pl map and you would like something specific, ask for it here, maybe you'll still spark some interest and get it done.

    I know there's quite a few of you taking up modeling in light of the TF2 Polycount Contest, what better practice than building bombcart models? They're unique, relatively the same size and all serve the same purpose--and they're detail-focused.

    And with 3 pl/plr maps in the last update, the only real great new content seemed to be some cool wooden fences and high-poly rock sculpts (great ones too). It would be a real treat to have some great new community content for pl and plr maps. I'd like to make at least 2 before it's all said and done.

    So what do you say?

    It's not a contest! Just making sure that's known, it's merely a practice and contribution opportunity. If you make something and can't finish it, maybe still submit the files here for someone to finish.

    Not yet, I'm kinda holding onto it since I would like to see it used to destroy a seaborne target.

    More of a "I can make carts me" sort of showoff pic.

    It's a start then! I'm going to draw up some rough ideas and post here after a while. Then get rolling.

    Anyone mind if I make it in Autodesk Inventor?

    Its the only "modeling" program that I am fluent with.

    This would make a wonderful minicontest.

    If you can get it into a .obj or .smd that's fine with me, almost anyone can work with a .obj. And a contest, sure, but my intention was to promote free content and good practice without the ego that sometimes comes along with a contest.

    Funny, I just today decided to make a 'custom' cart for my pl map. I'm still an extreme beginer to modeling, but I needed a cart without the bomb model so I removed it and recompiled :3

    [​IMG]

    So yeah...all I've done is removed the bomb, and moved the light, then added the barrel prop in hammer. But I don't mind if it was probably something extremely easy for anyone to do (hell, it was easy for me) but it's what I wanted for the map.

    Ritz was running around with a map idea that ended in a whirlpool of death being blown up. But I have to say, dynamite seems unlikely to explode underwater.

    Could someone made a de-complied bomb cart? The current one is corrupt. :S

    I was thinking a little, and I came up with a water cart kind of thing. A giant, transparent bottle or other transparent object, mounted on the cart, with jiggle-boned water. I have the map idea, but I don't want to share it in case someone takes it before I get around to it. You don't have to make it, but think about it. You could get creative with the dispenser theme for the cart, possibly a different cart carriage, and the way of detonation if the cart won't just break on fall.

    Thats a great looking cart Nova. How about an over sized sticky in a cart? or someone could make a cart out of this drawing on the engi update page:
