    Hello everyones!! :3

    well after I try to modify the animations with bad results becouse the decompiler make many error in the .qc file specially with the animation part, so I decide to not continue with the idea of female characters

    So instead of that. I start with something diferent convert all characters to animals :3
    first i start with the hevy guy of course he is a bear

    This is one cool idea! :D

    Though I think horse and snake wouldn't look so nice (think of the size of a horsehead compared to the demo's head). For the medic I think an owl would suite perfect with the glasses, but I can't think of anything good for the demo.

    And why not some kind of Chameleon for the spy? :) They have the same nature and all..

    Medic and spy should be switched.
    Medic = Fox
    Spy = Snake

    Sniper should be a koala bear.

    Pyro (to me) shouldn't be a cow, although im not sure what it would be.

    Rest look good =)

    That looks really nice. The model, that is, but the idea is neat too. I totally agree with DJive about making the Medic a fox, although having any class be a snake seems absurd. The Spy could be a rat. :p

    This.

    Really innovative idea, and the shit looks pretty damn sweet.

    I like the idea of modeling each class after an animal that resembles its traits/character. But I disagree with some of your choices.

    I think the soldier should be the eagle. The bald eagle is an American emblem. Also, his rocket jumping aerial attacks and his "Screaming Eagles!" line are perfect for this.


    The medic can be the German Shepherd then. A dog suits him better as "man's best friend" (and his "submissive" nature in serving others). German shepherd for the German medic, well, sounds good, doesn't it?

    Nailed it! :laugh:


    Pyro is tough, the closest thing I can think of is a bat right now. Like "Bat out of hell" (Meat Loaf) or Firebat (Starcraft). Or a lizard to resemble a firebreathing dragon.


    Demoman- very tempting to go with the stereotype here and make him a Panther.



    Oh and [Insert random furry joke here] :p

    I would make the Engineer a turtle (suits his playstyle and he reminds me visually of one).

    The Pyro could be a crocodile? A shark? I dunno :confused:.

    I would say the soldier should be an eagle too.

    The Sniper could be a hare.

    I think the pyro should be whatever those things are called, the wild spinning guy in the Looney Toons.

    I admit I was really worried when I saw the topic title, but I'm pleasantly surprised. It looks like you've actually thought about this and are going to do it in a sensible manner.

    About the choices and what people have been saying:

    I think soldier is fine as a dog. It suits the "all-purpose" nature of the class.
    Linked to the soldier bit... the eagle fits the sniper very well ("eagle eyes", they soar high above the ground out of sight of their prey), and if you were to make the soldier an eagle there wouldn't be anything nearly as good for the sniper.

    Snake sounds good for the medic. It seems everyone not liking it forgets about the association between the snake and medicine.
    However, it'll only work if you are making a full conversion to a snake (no arms and legs) and are good at animating. Otherwise I think I'd go with the owl idea.

    Beaver for engy is good. Yeah yeah engys turtle up, but beavers are always building stuff and diligently repairing their structures. Waaaaay better choice.

    As much as a chameleon or a rat could fit the spy, I think the fox is far more suited. Foxes are associated with being cunning and sly predators.

    The only two I'm unsure about are the demo and the pyro.
    At first glance, I'm thinking people wouldn't want to play as a "farm animal" next to all the other neat ones.
    I get the "mad cow" thing, but it just seems a little off, can't think of something good though. Probably as a result of not knowing just what the pyro is to begin with.

    I really don't see where you got demo=horse from, however, it inspires me towards a possible alternative.
    Scottish -> leprechauns -> mythical beings -> unicorn.
    - He's called a "grim bloody fable"
    - unicorns are oddballs with one horn, goes with his one eye
    - reminds me of the Peggle Extreme version Bjorn the Unicorn
    - reminds me of Charlie the Unicorn

    My first thought for Heavy would have been a Gorilla. Bear's ok though.

    For Demo I first though about his hunched shoulders, and that got me thinking Hyena. Doesn't fit how I play Demo, but then again I'm not too good as a Demo, so maybe we should ignore that. :)

    Is it odd that I see the Pyro as a Turkey? Low center of gravity, skinny head, maybe getting payback by cooking everyone else for a change?

    Cheetah is a natural for Scout. But Cheetahs are sprinters. Perhaps a Squirrel, for it's manic darting about?

    Fun idea. Interested in seeing how it turns out.

    I gotta say, I think the Demo would be more suited as either a Warthog or a Tiger, something more fierce than a horse. Maybe a Rhino.

    Spy is great as a fox, however a Raccoon would be nifty, since he has a natural mask.

    As for Pyro, what about a Hippopotamus? Or something in a totally different direction, I'm thinking Reptiles to buy into the whole "heat" thing (they enjoy external warmth since they are cold-blooded). A Komodo Dragon or even a Crocodile.

    If mystical creatures are allowed that opens up a ton more options.

    Well if mythical creatures are allowed, dragon is the obvious choice for the pyro.

    I suggested salamander because it's a real animal and though it does not breath fire, it's also the name of the fire elemental.
