    So you find a good thing on the Steam Workshop? Post it here.

    Find a shitty concept and want everyone to laugh at it. Post it here.

    Want to show the 5th AK-47 submission? Post it here.

    We don't have a discussion on stuff in the Steam Workshop, so might as well start one.

    I'll start. This needs to be ingame sbad. I have the mod on my scout right now, and it looks awesome.

    what would be really sexy is if valve made an ingame modeling tool, automatic UV unwraper, and a color palet for texturing. then allowing you to see your model ingame, adjust it's position on the player, allowable for P2P users only (of course)

    An in-house model maker would never come close to the quality of any of the 3rd party modelling software already out there. I mean look how infrequently they update the sdk already, I'd rather they spent time working on the software they already have released being there's no alternative to them unlike modelling programs.

    Also if you want to see good items submission pretty much 90% of the top rated items and contributors are part of Facepunch's TF2 Mod Emporium thread and everything else is from the Polycount forum and they use a single thread to show off the TF2 stuff made over there.

    Seeing the amount of downright plagiarism and retarded item stat submissions going on I wonder if this is more or less the same amount of bollocks Valve got send with the old contribution system

    Yeah I noticed a bunch of stuff from the emporium in there. Good for them, their stuff needs to even out the crap in there. Past page 45 or so, the quality goes down exponentially.

    And I hope for the love of God, Valve doesn't add any of the assault rifle suggestions. That would ruin the game for me.

    Next update: Every item that gets enough upvotes in the Workshop gets automatically added to the game so Valve doesn't have to do any more work on the game.

    So, what? Is the minimum requirement for a submission just an image? I don't get how this is better than the contribute site, especially considering how much damn spam there is.

    However, I do like all of these (though I've seen all but one of them on Polycount or Facepunch):

    The White Knight, even though it looks like something from Portal
    Pyro skin for Reserve Shooter
    Pyrosaurolophus hat (part of a whole dinosaur pack, but this is the only hat I like in it)
    Ultimate troll taunt

    Most of everything I've seen on there (other than spam) is either way over-detailed, messes with the silhouettes to an insane degree, or looks almost identical to something already in the game (i.e. a Spy knife, but with a slightly curved blade)

    The White Knight looks ridiculously bulky. I would wear the shit out of that pyro hat.

    What the shit. That is frustrating. The clown is a fun idea, and while your model could use some improvement, the other model sucks ass in comparison.

    Gerbil is a punk, fo sho.

    Considering how tiny his clown nose is and his comment about alliteration, maybe he should rename it the Clown Clit.

    What can I improve on it? I didn't know whether or not I should put a string on the nose. Probably makes sense and looks better up close, but for most gameplay wouldn't be noticed.

    Definitely up for suggestions though.

    I did add 'makeup eyebrows' after that screenie, I think I need to update my workjshop screens too, to actually show it in game
