If you're on board...

...we're bringing back April Fools 2016, and we're looking for people who would be interested in participating. --User Dr. Scaphandre Golden Ghastly Gibus.png Dr. Scaphandre 13:19, 3 January 2016 (PST)

I could do something, if you having something in mind for me to do, tell it quick. I could be busy after my vacations are over. I'm good at texture editing, if needed, as well HLMV, obviously. Like, I dunno, TF2 Wiki Decorated Skins or something? Weapons.tf site is still in beta, sometimes it's difficult to get the decorated weapon textures, and I have no idea if I can force to load a custom "decal" on the website.

My plan would be a "Fix Update", like listing a heck load of bugs that people complain for years now, and also the return of Ultra High Texture Settings and the TF2TIP pack "officially" added. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:42, 3 January 2016 (PST)
Ashes suggested some joke skins, and I need someone to do HLMV pics for my Golden Ghastly Gibus page, so you and Bojjob would be really handy for that. --User Dr. Scaphandre Golden Ghastly Gibus.png Dr. Scaphandre 15:47, 3 January 2016 (PST)
I could make HLMV pics for the Gibus (I'll do this job Bojjob, stahap, you do the paint variants (how, I don't know, maybe a pinkish golden gibus, anyone?)). Plus, I'll do the images for the Gibus with TF2TIP, like the "Patch Note" I suggested. I'm thinking in more ideas for it. I'm kinda good on modeling (not professional), but I never tried make any cosmetic items for TF2. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 18:42, 3 January 2016 (PST)
Also, I'll re-do that backpack icon, no offense, but there's a lot of black dots surrounded by the image. Let the "fire overlay" effect on it, just to feel it's truly official.

Hat With No Name

Since we need to update this again, I was wondering if the infobox should keep all 4 classes in or should we do just the one like the Deadliest Duckling? It's kinda tiny as it is User Bojjob Userlink.png 06:48, 11 January 2016 (PST)

I think they only updated that the paint wasn't working. I haven't checked. And honestly, I don't really like your Deadliest Duckling pic, it's inconsistent with other multi-class items. Of course that the previous one was horrible, but it's not quite right yet.

Questions about image editing

Hey Gabrielwoj,

I've got some questions regarding Gimp image editing, would you mind adding me on Steam for it? Thanks! :)

"Unneeded" class images

Why are you uploading class images for Tuxxy and Dead of Night? The item isn't significantly different on the different classes... Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 13:07, 7 April 2016 (PDT)

The model is still different enough for adding it to the infobox, and, the more complete the article, the better. Yet, I talked about that since last year that I would make it and nobody said anything that I shouldn't. I need to disagree with the Dead of Night, it's quite different on the classes to accommodate their default models, the Medic one is pretty different. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:10, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
Well for Dead of Night you were only uploading gallery pics as far as I can see, but with Tuxxy, an infobox that long doesn't look that good imo. Also, we've never done that before on team-colored all-class miscs. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk|Contribs} 13:13, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
The more complete? The wiki isn't trying to document every aspect of every item. If the medic style is pretty different, show that one. I'm worried about A. total workload to update theoretically all multiclass items, and B. the distance down the page it moves other key information. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 13:15, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
Well, I just lost what I wrote due edit conflict. Well, if that's the case, I'll just leave it incomplete and let it dust. I was trying to make more work that I've to to add more content to the articles (especially pictures), but there's no consistency norms here. And too, there's barely anyone editing here nowadays, so adding norms will just make people left. Even if the work isn't superb, people still should contribute, User:Victory was banned and never came back, how surprising, congrats on losing a potential contributor to this wiki, now we have thousands of incomplete paint variant gallery pictures (outdated, missing and so on). Returning to the Tuxxy/Dead of Night pics, the classes pictures on the infobox should show the reader how it looks on the class without the pose blocking it (on the Gallery). The Tuxxy also shows some model changes between classes, and the Dead of Night, on the Medic, is quite different from the rest. I would make pictures only for more severe model changes (classes that changes the orientation of the item wouldn't count). I'll stop uploading it until it's decided, but it the page will look incomplete as it now until something is decided. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:20, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
It would be an honor for me to work at your side with uploading images. It'd be great if you'd find some time to mentor, I already mentioned in the irc that seemingly nobody left here knows much about images and those things. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk|Contribs} 13:23, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
I'll post few things on your UserTalk later on, but I'm quite busy on my semester right now (took a day break today). HLMV has some incompatibles stuff sometimes (like the lighting, textures and models, or sometimes some funky stuff with grey eyes), but this Wiki is pretty much empty, and any image would be welcome, at least on my opinion. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:26, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
That's very much appreciated! I already uploaded some painted variants and gallery pics, I think it's not that bad. But I'm quite perfectionistic and try to improve the quality and consistency with other uploads. — shots fired by: Nikno {Talk|Contribs} 13:27, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
Yep, honestly, those Brutal Bouffant pics are quite good, and you already know about the Rotations page and how to even edited from regedit, nice! The only thing I think, is that you are using the regular models. We use here the "hwm" models, they have a better face texture and you're more free to do the facial expressions with it. I can tell the difference due the lighting right on the classes' faces. But really, they really seem to be good. I may not even need to tutor much, but it depends how is your "current" style of doing those pictures. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:35, 7 April 2016 (PDT)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Trying to stay on topic, Victory's problem was not being willing to talk through issues before doing them, not a necessarily 'misguided' approach. I understand your concern about lack of editing, but I'm not sure that indicates lack of interest rather than lack of obvious (easy) work. Thousands of incomplete painted variants? I was pretty sure we reverted Victory's changes, rather than just outright deleting her edits. I'm not against showing important item differences, and I wouldn't say no to seeing a page completed with this idea, just so we can compare it to another page. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 13:29, 7 April 2016 (PDT)

But if she wasn't banned, she could be adding missing pictures right now. And yes, there is a lot of missing paint variations. Especially with the new updated items, and some of them now have paintabillity (such as the Trickster's Turnout Gear) and some are somewhat different from before (Colonel's Coat). User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:35, 7 April 2016 (PDT)
I'm not sure I follow your logic, Victory was banned because her edits were made with a disregard for others' concerns. I'm not sure exactly what you mean about those two images. But yeah, we don't have any active contributors uploading painted variants beyond Nikno and MarioMaster2008. Darkid (Talk | Contribs) 13:43, 7 April 2016 (PDT)

Any particular reason to removed me?

Did I do somethings wrong? ; w ; User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 23:50, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

No, you haven't done anything wrong. I do apologize for the lack of explanation before removal or when you asked me (I wasn't sure where to reply, I thought making another Trade Offer to reply to your question, but I ended up not doing it). Sometimes, I remove people from my Friends List when I'm having difficult moments in life, feeling sadness, anxious, and so on. In some cases, I can feel very sad, very anxious, and I feel like I don't want to be bothered, which may be the cause of said removals. From time to time, I do also clean up my Friends List if there's too many people added (I always make a backup of the friends I had added before removing), although, that was not the case for you. Again, I'm sorry if such act hurt you in any way. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 00:59, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
Is ok, if you feel better, then just simply start talking with me. Hope you'll get better soon User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 14:17, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. If by any case this happens again, it's probably due to the same reason. Hopefully, this won't happen again. Thank you for your understanding, and I'll sure talk to you when I'm feeling a little better. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 21:24, 26 August 2018 (UTC)
Again, if you feel better, then just simply start talking with me. I don't mind getting removed because you have the mental problem :( User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 22:40, 16 September 2018 (UTC)
Okay. I do always backup my Friends List before I end up removing people... so, if by any case I want to re-add someone else in the future, I can just access my backup and find the person over there. I believe this post was made before we talked via Steam yesterday, but yeah, I decided to reply it, regardless. Thanks. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 21:16, 17 September 2018 (UTC)
I'll leave my request there as usual, if you're feeling better, you can accept at anytime. I'm sorry for being busy lately and didn't talk with. User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 11:44, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I had a not so good Monday this week, and so proceeded to clean up my friends list. I'll add you again when I'm feeling a little better, right now things aren't too good on my side. It may take some time until then, but the only thing I ask for you to be patient until I'm feeling better again.

The worse Gabriel Wikichievement unlocked!
You've done quite a lot of these small, minor edits over time. Have this one.

Oh, thank you! I love the title you just put, haha, even though this edit here will not be a Minor Edit :P But I do not agree on your name you put there, because I think all your work and everything you have done is great, and coming from a great person too. Thank you again, not only for the Wikiachievement, but for everything you've done too.

Workshop description verses publicity blurb

I always figured that the quotation source was "Workshop description" if it came from the community description in the workshop, but the source is "publicity blurb" if it comes from Valve's description in the update page or blog.

Trivia examples

Could you come up with some trivia examples for the two new criteria I added to the trivia style page? See Mr. Johnson's talk archive for the same request. M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (To Do) 19:04, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

Sure, I'll see what I can do about it. There's a lot still to be removed/improved from the Wiki, I'll catch these up sometime. Although, I do have several minor edits from trivia removal that I can use as examples. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 16:52, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I think I can get it done with your edits to Soul Saviors, maybe tonight or tomorrow. M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (To Do) 19:11, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Sure. I still have to go into a lot of pages, so if you see anything better in the meantime, you can use them instead. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 19:15, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
I for the "See also"s we can include a statement justifying the entry, in small font. (" same style as " or " developed with " or whatever you think is best, it just has to conform to General Style, not trivia) M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (To Do) 19:25, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Hm? Pardon me, but I couldn't understand you. Are you referring to the addition of "See also" on cosmetic pages? If I got it right, it would be something like this?

See also

Other items community-created along with CosmeticNameGoesHere:


Contribution/contributed and so on, is a pretty universal phrase for items added from the workshop. If the items in question are by Valve, we simply remove the "community-". How would that sound? User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 19:33, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Not quite, maybe we can chat about this after work. M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (To Do) 19:42, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Sure. I'm still quite unsure on how the See also could be worded, as there still cases about the promotional items included (See Merc's Pride Scarf). User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 19:45, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
Dark Falkirk Helm
  • Lead: delete: under the name "Dark Knight".
  • Trivia: Delete "The Sole Saviors and the Dark Falkirk Helm were contributed together as part of the "Dark Age Defender Additions" set.
  • See also: Sole Saviors
By "small text", I mean additional comments justifying the See also entry
Half-baked ideas, maybe unnecessary.

Should we remove the "under the name" section on all cosmetic pages? And, it's okay, I like your ideas. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 17:56, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Remove, "under the name"? Reviewing the Yeti Set, it seems to have been accepted, maybe I am wrong about removing "under the name" from the Lead. It is certainly better to say it there in the Lead than in Trivia. But I may be misremembering seeing that being deleted in the past (before Jungle Inferno), don't got deleting them on my suggestion, see if that sort of thing was really deleted from Leads. Look two-three updates back, maybe earlier when there was better patrolling. M I K A D O 🦃🦃🦃🦃🦃🦃 🦃🦃 🦃🦃 (talk) (To Do) 22:00, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Well, that's what I understood with your previous statement about "under the name", apologies if that wasn't what you meant. I don't particularly agree on removing, mostly because pretty much all pages has the original name already on the main summary, and removing them would be really time consuming and not really needed. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 22:07, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
I was wrong. Don't remove them. M I K A D O 🦃🦃🦃🦃🦃🦃 🦃🦃 🦃🦃 (talk) (To Do) 22:28, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Sure thing. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 22:29, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Hey buddy!

Just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you and that I hope you get feeling better! I wish we can talk again sometime... (p.s. I still have a friend request from you on discord. Do you want me to ignore it?) Gadddy (talk) 17:58, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Sure, I've added you on Discord a little while ago. I may be able to talk from there, but I'm not too active over there. And I'm sorry for removing you on Steam, I've had some emotional breakdowns recently, as I've been feeling really terrible lately. Feeling very sick daily, usually with a harsh headache and many other bad feelings circulating on my mind all the time.

Issue with HLMV and it's graphic settings

Hi! So, i've decided to look into the issue with textures, and while my game/config uses very high textures, HLMV does not. Here's the thing though - I did modify dxsupport.cfg; here's how it looks. Is there anything else that I could do? Goodjob (talk) 18:29, 25 January 2019 (UTC)

Make a backup of your dxsupport.cfg and try using this one instead, this one pretty much maximizes all the settings over all possible graphics card. This is the one I use it, so it should work. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 20:00, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, that works! Now, here's the thing - should I go and remake the pics i've added thus far, or is it alright to leave them as they are, but have any further pics with higher textures, since they work now? Goodjob (talk) 20:05, 25 January 2019 (UTC)
It's alright, no need for replace them. I usually only mark texture settings when there's something else to improve or if it's at really low quality (check Dealer's Visor picture, just check the Heavy emblem, that is some "high quality low settings stuff"). But yeah, always try taking photos at the highest quality settings when possible, so your future uploads will do fine.

Recent edits

Hi Gabriel,

I was wondering what the point was of these edits? It seems like you removed stuff about the workshop submission titles and any trivia/notes relating to that, if that's correct please let me know (in that case you missed a bit of Trivia on a /nl page). Also why? (question from zeklyn) GrampaSwood (talk) 19:16, 16 February 2019 (UTC)

Well, I've asked first here, he told me he was removing the names similar to how we were removing Trivias about the original names. I'd say it makes sense. Some names were quite strange on the page, like I mentioned about Insulated's Inventor one there. I'll keep future edits on hold until further discussion about this. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 19:19, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Also, please let me know if I should continue or currently stop doing these edits. I can revert any already-made changes I did related to the original names in case. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 20:01, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
I don't know that GrampaSwood was necessarily questioning the edits. IIRC, we discused it above. #See also (that said, I haven't followed the edits so I may be 9ff base).
IMO, if it is Workshop, it is prerelease and so not usually Trivia, and not interesting and so also not Trivia for that reason. Monster Mash is a counter example because of the notoriety of the name and the Copyright concerns. Hey, Gab, I just thought of Good(Monster Mash) Bad(most any other prerelease Workshop name) eaxmple. M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (Help Wanted!) 03:17, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
Well, I'm kinda confused now. Most of the edits I did were related to removing the original workshop name. Yes, I did removed that part from Monster Mash indeed. Do you want that I revert any edits regarding the original workshop names, or should I continue removing them? I may already ask something, but, previously, when it was questioned about keeping or removing the workshop names, was it because it would be time consuming to edit those, or because we wanted to keep the names there? Because if it's time-consuming, I don't mind taking some time to remove each one on the /en pages, searching for "under the name" really helps out on this task. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 12:49, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I am on the desktop now, so I can be more expressive, I see that there are two issues, and we kinda have a quorum of (4?) active editors looking at this (with User:Danio19978) reading this: Workshop content in Trivia and Workshop content in the Lead: M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (Help Wanted!) 15:08, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Workshop content in Trivia

Pictogram minus.png Oppose in general As I understand it, information in Workshop is prerelease, where Trivia is generally restricted to released content, and it is on that basis, IIRC, that name change on release has been reverted from Trivia. (General policing of content slipped circa 2014?) It is also generally uninteresting, Valve often changes or tweaks names on release. That said, there can be expections: I made the decision to let the Trivia about the name change of Monster Mash to Monster Bash stand because of the notoriety of the song (Interesting (if obvious to silverbacks)) but coupled with Valve concern with Copyright (assuming that is not rank Speculation). YMMV, so I propose either you revert the Monster Mash trivia if you agree or open a discussion on the Monster Bash Talk expressly on that subject. M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (Help Wanted!) 15:08, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Workshop content (name change) in the Lead

Pictogram comment.png Equivocating There is a precedent for greater tolerance for the obvious and uninteresting in the Lead (Oooh, the medieval style helmet has rivets!), but that said, I can't say whether there was or now is precedent for the general statement "...contributed] to the game via the Steam Workshop under the name "...". I had hoped that you surveyed the past Community Cosmetics (pre-2013) to see if the statement was conventional originally. This topic really should be address under the Help:Style guide/Cosmetics, when one of you writes it. M I K A D O 282 oOOOOo oo oo (talk) (Help Wanted!) 15:08, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

Well, alright. I'll make a post on the Wiki Discussion page about it later, and we can settle down from there, but I do hope people come by to give their opinions and thoughts, I've previously posted stuff on the Discussion page that haven't received any attention, so. I do apologize for any inconveniences so far regarding the subject. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:57, 17 February 2019 (UTC)

BLU Team Color Style Images

Hey there, I'm starting to do a little project so that all styles are represented in the team colors section, if an item has multiple styles, and not just the first one, to better represent the item as a whole. I had slipped that sort of thing into pages like the Aim Assistant article when it was first made, as well as the tournament medal articles I've been working on. It's come to my attention that some (largely unpaintable) items don't have BLU style images, most likely because they were seen as unneeded at the time, such as the Apparatchik's Apparel. You took the RED style images for those -- would you happen to be able to make BLU ones as well, for items you've worked on style images for in general? Or failing that, would you still happen to have the regedit values for them? -ThatHatGuy (talk) 11:59, 6 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi. I probably don't have the regedit values anymore, but for Apparatchik's Apparel, I used the same one as the Siberian Sophisticate. I'm on a different computer/monitor than I used before, so I probably won't be able to replicate 100% with the regedit values. I can, however, if replacements are needed, re-make the images on RED/BLU variations, such as the Duck Journal. It's nice that we are progressing with what I originally discussed on the Wiki's Discussion page. User Gabrielwoj Signature Icon.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:18, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
If you could go ahead and redo the style images for the Apparel, that would be good, yeah; especially because you do that fancy grey gradient for there not being a head. It's all set up now to take in the BLU images for the other three styles, but you can go ahead and redo the Outdoorsmen style as well, if you'd like. (If the BLU image for the Outdoorsmen style is having trouble caching the thumbnail, as I suspect it will for the next few days, you can get to that here.) -ThatHatGuy (talk) 13:45, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
Update on the styles project: I've got everything in place, but there are a few things I'd like for you to help with, now that everything's mostly in place. Do you think you could:
  • Redo the style images for the Apparatchik's Apparel, adding BLU shirts where applicable
  • Redo the style images for the Duck Journal, adding BLU ducks where applicable
  • Help with the Triad Trinket BLU image for the Bear style? There were no rots provided, so it's probably best to redo them all for consistency, but it's a body shot
  • Help with the War on Smissmas Battle Hood BLU image for the Helmet style? Same thing, no rots, but it's a full body shot.

Those should be all I need from you now. Thank you for your time! -ThatHatGuy (talk) 02:54, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

I see you're already doing the Duck Journal images, that's good! One last thing, I would like your help with the Der Wintermantel Gramma's Sweater Hidden paint table. There are rots for it, and you'd just need to use the other style's model. I never could get those head-gradients right. Sorry to dump a list on you like this. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 03:18, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
Sure no problem, but my current setup is kinda difficult for me to do the other images (I'm on a low resolution, I use a program to resize the boundaries of a application window, but even so it's hard to use the same rot like so). I only did the Duck Journal ones because they didn't had to follow specific rots. At some point, I'll be getting the Window Size of HLMV when running on a 1920x1080 resolution, so I can use like so with that program, and possibly be able to replicate the images without any issues.

Thank you!
Dereko is thanking Gabrielwoj for nomination,with good cheer and deep joviality.

I thought it would be a normal day until friends at IRC told me about the nomination.

There is no editor who mainly translates pages into simplified Chinese has received the cap, and I don't know if there are someone being nominated before.

So, to be honest, it's a huge honor for me to be nominated. And whatever the result is, I will be grateful and satisfied.

Dereko shows you their best gratitude.

User Dereko Name.png 10:51, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

That's a lot of wholesome words. I mean, sure thing, since everyone were nominating everyone, I decided it'd be your time as well. I find it strange that no other Chinese users got nominated in the past, I've seen some good users (such as Hoto_Cocoa and yourself), so it's kinda strange to know that.

Tournament Medal Item Icons

Hey there, I saw you're working on a project to revitalize Shugo style item icons; and I come to you today at a crossroads of how to proceed with tournament medal things. I'm looking into redoing the tournament medal disambiguation page and item timeline pages to be up to date, and far less crowded with red text and duplicate icons, respectively. But since both of those use item icons, I'm at a loss for how to display them properly on those pages; and since you're in the middle of a Shugo style revamp project, I thought I would ask your input. We could either:

  • Have an item icon for each different gold medal in a single tournament (division bracket/seasonal medals, with different models, in the same tournament)
  • Have a collective joint item icon that features each of those medals in the same icon.

Basically, this means for tournaments like Ready Steady Pan, where there are several medals per season, the item icon would be either one for each season's gold medal (and then a stretched nameplate for "Tournament Medal - Ready Steady Pan" below them,) or a single icon with all four gold medals. I personally am leaning towards the first one: full item icons for each different gold medal in a tournament (of course, on top of the item icon for each tournament system we have now.) This would make it so it'd be easier to display each medal on the disambiguation page -- it wouldn't work as great on the item timeline page, but you can't have everything you wish for.

I'm probably going to tackle working on the disambiguation page soon, but I wanted to see which method you'd prefer; I imagine it would also be the "separate item icons for each gold medal" option, seeing as how that wouldn't have to be updated again if Valve ever do add more medals, while a joint icon would; and even though a joint icon would look more aesthetically pleasing on the item timeline, I don't personally think it's feasible to do that. - ThatHatGuy (talk) 10:23, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

To clarify, I'll fill in any missing item icon gaps with traditional ones for now. You can upload Shugo styled ones later, when you get around to those medals. - ThatHatGuy (talk) 10:25, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
I was taking a break from Shugo style icons because I did a lot before tackling with Tournament Medals. Tournament Medals are also kinda annoying to find in the game files (I usually check the model's filename on items_game.txt), and there's the usual problem of some medals loading on HLMV "lied down", which is impossible to take a good shot without modifying the model's position manually on Blender. I think we could do something like this, perhaps? https://i.imgur.com/jDpIlsV.


The Tournament Medals page show each variation of an available medal (not considering Silver and Bronze medals). As for your point, making an icon that shows four Golden Medals won't look good if it's just 1 icon (it'll show quite small on the table), but it could work if we instead use 4 separate Item Icons above the "Tournament Medal - Ready Steady Pan" name.


The Tournament Medals page require some updating (I think some medals are missing there), and someone should remove the Tournament Medals from List of All class cosmetics (it was already requested, but it wasn't done yet), because they aren't "real" cosmetics and they are taking a lot of space on that table. When doing that, make sure to add a {{hatnote}} like "Tournament Medals are omitted from this table, to view them, visit Tournament Medals.".


As for your points, I think we should show all Golden Medals from available seasons, and omitting "Helper" or "Supporter" medals from them. If we decide to do the way like the image I've linked, we should then list all available medals, including Supporter and Helper ones, but excluding Silver and Bronze. User Gabrielwoj Signature Icon.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 13:18, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
The imgur image was sort of what I was going for, but not quite. There's already an extra duplicate of the same string in that Ready Steady Pan image. What I'd like instead is for there to be three columns:
* Item icons
* Tournament name [stretched out for as long as it needs to in order to cover all the icons for that tournament]
* Descriptive strings under that, "Season 1," "Season 2," "___ Division" or what have you
Just like any other cosmetic table, but alphabetized by a league sidebar on the left. That way it's cleaner and easier to read what you're looking for, while still showing all the medal designs. It would extend to divisions as well, so let's take AsiaFortress Cup as an example. We'd have to show all of those, and so it'd go:
* AsiaFortress Cup Divisions 1-3 icons
* rowspan 3 = "Tournament Medal - AsiaFortress Cup" to cover all three icons
* Three separate strings below each icon -- Division 1, Division 2, Division 3
With the same AsiaFortress sidebar on the left. That way, everybody knows which medal belongs to which part of which league, right away, and it's nice and smooth. Is that feasible? To address your point about showcasing other types of medals like Helper/Supporter/Staff, we could show any type of medal you wanted like this, they'd just have to extend the "Tournament Medal - Whatever" row longer, and have their own description string on the third row. - ThatHatGuy (talk) 14:19, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
Sounds good for me. I'll have a better idea when it's finished, but we can already use the default Item icons before I make them in Shugo style (take the Backpack Icons for them, they'll be temporary until I get the Icons done). If anything, try how it looks with Cap that Cup medals, since I've made the icon for the Gold version already. User Gabrielwoj Signature Icon.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:37, 12 September 2019 (UTC)
I've finally got a visual aid going. I've decided to forgo colspanning the medal nameplates for now, as that stretches things out, it seems. We'll see how that pans out. But it'll look basically like this: we'll showcase the gold medals of each league first, in each division or season that has gold medals; and then the one-off tournaments will have their own section at the bottom, where they'll all be grouped together alphabetically, but without the seasons or years or anything, because there's only one set of them. - ThatHatGuy (talk) 12:07, 13 September 2019 (UTC)

Gas Passer recharge rate with MvM upgrades

Hey, I'm not sure if this is here where I should ask you this, but you said in the Upgrade Station page (https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Upgrade_Station) that : "Gas Passer only: Recharge rate is also applied to recharge rate done by damage, while also increasing the base rate that builds over time."

I wanted to know if you have any source regarding this. Thank you for your time. Quenquent (talk) 14:19, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

I don't have a video source, but I always test things first before adding/removing info. I was once playing MvM and I noticed that by purchasing the Recharge Rate upgrade also applied to how fast I would build up Gas with damage done. Instead of taking about 5 seconds to build up gas with damage done, it would take less than a second with full Recharge Rate upgraded. User Gabrielwoj Signature Icon.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 16:40, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

A friend of mine took the time to test it by setting the GP's recharge rate bonus to -100% (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6AEOMfB6Dg). The GP isn't charging on damage and that confirms what you said. Sorry for wasting your time and thank you for your answer ! Quenquent (talk) 10:06, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

A question about Creators.TF

I am busy with my schoolwork these days, I think I miss something important.

May I ask why do we delete the pages?

User Dereko Name.png 03:52, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Well, it first started with GrampaSwood adding a deletion note to the page stating "See the talk page, Wookipan deemed this page to be against wiki policy. No other replies are able to be loaded so I couldn't find any other arguments. Make sure to ask User:404UNF if he wants it on his user page before deleting.", though he later reverted his own edit stating "Talk in staff IRC cleared this up". A few hours later, Lagg deleted the English page, so I deleted the other languages as well. His reason was "Fully deprecated: Not notable per community site policy and talk page, try again when valve has an event or references it". There's more information on Talk:Creators.TF under "Notability". I asked on IRC if I should remove the images featured on the article (now that they are all unused), but got no response. I decided that I'll keep them because someone may want to put that on their UserPage, but I'm just waiting someone's opinion on this so I can either delete them or not.

Help with New Community Medal Item Icon

I'm working on a wiki page for upcoming community medals for Titanium Tank: Reforged over on my sandbox, and I need your help with an item icon for the Gilded Giver medal. It's the Hopeful Heart medal from Madness vs. Machines, with a custom gold color applied to it through the item schema. So I'd like you to try and replicate your item icon for the Hopeful Heart medal, and also paint the medal #DAA520 (RGB 218,165,32), to better represent how the medal will look like when it drops. When you're finished, please upload it through here. (I've linked it directly, so you don't have to go looking for it, as its destination is currently hidden.)

Thanks for your help. It is indeed true, they even mention it’ll be a golden heart on the blog post. Which wouldn’t be possible unless it came painted gold, since they aren’t accepting new materials for medals anymore, and it was initially a purple medal. Though it is true that it’s never happened to an item before – that’s what makes it exciting! -ThatHatGuy (talk) 21:46, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
As a secondary question: what rot/trans/lightrot values did you use to make that image? Vasya lost his rots when he changed computers, so I need to repaint the medals if all the tables are going to match – but no matter what positions I use, there’s always some unpleasant tearing, especially visible on lighter colors. Did you use a custom model? And if not, what were your values, because your image seems clean. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 11:27, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
Well, the rot/trans/lightrot isn't the same as the paint variants, but here it is anyway: Rot (25.276474 -38.199379 -18.572231), Trans (67.609062 0.000000 0.857405) and lightrot (-7.914917 165.923553 1.258879).

Victory Lap Infobox Image

hey, i don't think the lighting on the infobox image looks very good. you kind of broke something that didn't need fixing - the image before was already very good. -- Boba 03:29, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Well, the previous image actually had a weird lighting, most (if not all) of Bojjob's picture have this weird lighting applied on them. Examples:

[1] (Old version) - [2] (New version)
[3] (Old version) - [4] (New version)
[5] (Old version) - [6] (New version)
[7] (Old version) - [8] (New version)
Notice that all the previous versions of the image has this weird glossy lighting coming from the edges. The problem is featured on the previous Victory Lap image as well, however, what I mentioned on the edit's description was if the Ambient Lighting should be kept or not (the red glow on Sniper), and not the lighting on Sniper, if that makes sense. The red glow was added just for a little nice touch.

Dúvida

Olá!

Vi que você criou uma tabelinha com links para as imagens de itens decorados que não temos na wiki. Gostaria de perguntar quais são seus planos para ela.

Caso planeje enviar todos, eu infelizmente devo dizer que não é necessário. Já considerei e discutimos isso uma vez (na época que eu enviei os da página Decorated) e resolvemos não continuar com esse projeto. A quantidade de arquivos na página seria absurda e a wiki não é o melhor lugar pra exibir esse tipo de coisa e muitas das imagens que temos nem sequer são usadas. — Tark lm(pt-br) 17:49, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

Era isso que eu ia fazer, sim. Eu não tenho problema em algo que sabemos que será trabalhoso e custará tempo, mas eu já fiz diversas outras coisas que levaram semanas, até meses (os Item icons que eu fiz há uns meses, um exemplo). Tem certeza que não quer que eu faça o upload dos ícones? Eu tenho tempo livre para poder fazer isso. Caso não, poderíamos usar um direct link do Steam Community Market ao invés de fazer upload dos ícones, isso também poderia funcionar, já que ambos a Wiki do TF2 e o Steam são servidores da Valve, não imagino que teria problema de "bandwidth stealing". User Gabrielwoj Signature Icon.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 17:53, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Nem é questão de ser trabalhoso e demorar, eu tenho a maioria desses arquivos salvos no meu computador prontos para serem enviados, são cerca de 3 GB no total. A questão é que não temos nenhum uso para eles, a wiki não é o melhor lugar para visualizar esse tipo de item e colocá-los numa página seria exatamente desastroso por diversos motivos (uso de rede dos usuários, a página teria que ser dividida pois o software não aguenta...). — Tark lm(pt-br) 18:03, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

MvM/rottenburg bug

Hey I saw you undid my change of moving the respawn bug from the mvm page to the rottenburg page, 1) I was unaware of that coal town spot but 2) this is more of a map flaw than a gamemode flaw as this works in casual as well if you were able to get inside the enemy base spawn (for example during round end victory). It is 100% dependent on if the map has a proper clip setup between the spawnroom entity and the rest of the map. Jh34ghu43gu (talk) 17:24, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

Yeah. I decided to try on Mercenary Park a few days ago and indeed it's a bug that happens in any gamemode. I wasn't sure about listing in every map that has this bug due to repetitiveness (and back then, I thought it was a MVM-exclusive bug)... but considering there's a lot of "this weapon does not glow under crit boost" bugs throughout the Wiki, I guess that's not a problem. Feel free to add it back to Rottenburg and remove from the main MVM page. If you find any more maps with this bug, feel free as well. I apologize for not updating accordingly after I tested in Mercenary Park.

Hexadecimal Horrors Moonlit Magnate Item Icon

Hi there, I would like you to create an item icon for the Hexadecimal Horrors Moonlit Magnate medal, in the style of your previous item icons for Potato medals. It's the same heart medal as featured in Madness vs. Machines and Titanium Tank: Reforged, robotarm_donator, but this time painted a custom color very similar to A Deep Commitment to Purple, but not exactly. The color is #7D4070, or RGB 125, 64, 112. The medal is currently featured in my sandbox, and is about to be part of the revamped Promotional Items page; but you can upload the icon through my sandbox, if you'd like. Thank you for your time! -ThatHatGuy (talk) 01:00, 10 October 2021 (UTC)

Hi, at the moment, I have no plans in return making Item icons. I also no longer have the rot values for the potato.tf medals (though it probably uses the "universal rot" that is on my User:Gabrielwoj/Images page [WARNING: Bandwidth-heavy page]). I'll see what I can do. User Gabrielwoj Signature Icon.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 19:28, 10 October 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for creating the icon. I tried to do it myself based off the values listed on your default Shugo section, and it seemed the rotation was correct, but I couldn't find positioning trans values, and I'm not sure the lightrot was the same as the older icons; so I'm glad you were able to find the stats again. Do you think you could tell me exactly what they were, so I can create future icons for that heart in the future? It seems to be the medal they paint the most. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 01:17, 12 October 2021 (UTC)
I'm mostly sure that Trans is simply where the camera is panned, so it's easy to fix. I didn't had the value, but all I needed was a simple camera panning to find it out. Unlike the images I have done on the Wiki, I always do these icons in my laptop screen (1366x768), but it should work just fine in any resolution beyond that. You may not need to zoom-in at all either, just panning a lil' bit if the medal is not visible at first load (I just tried to load the model on my 1920x1080 monitor, and it appears just fine, same values too: https://imgur.com/a/GJqDT1T). Anyway, the values are: lightrot: (-0.475710 154.595901 8.248024), Rot: (25.276478 -38.199379 -18.572231) and Trans: (66.609062 0.000000 0.857405) (note that the lightrot I used on this medal is not the same as the previous medals, as I didn't had the values saved, but it's very close nonetheless, the lighting being slightly different isn't much of a big deal). Also, DO NOT FORGET THE UNIVERSAL FOV VALUE: 15, they are pesky since they are not saved on the Registry.

Binary Blackout Medal Item Icons

I've taken the images myself, as you can see from my imgur album, but I'm having a hard time scaling these down to 512x384, and when I do it manually, I'm unable to get them to match up perfectly with your older icons from the Madness medals.

I have two very slightly different rots in that album, one from the talk page conversation we had earlier about the Hexadecimal Horrors medals, and your universal rot from your images page. The main issue is having them cleanly scale down to item icon size though, with the white space around it. I suspect most people won't notice if the pose is very slightly different. For reference, in case this is needed, the Juvenile's Jade is HEX #17D58, based on robotarm_bronze, and the Marvellous Moonstone is HEX #B5E8FF, based off of robotarm_gold. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 02:41, 12 December 2021 (UTC)

They look fine to me, the change on the rot is very small, probably unnoticeable when viewing them on an article. The Marvellous Moonstone has nearly the same rot, it seems the way we make the anti-aliasing process is a bit different, but they both look good:
  • If you are on GIMP, select only the area of the medal using the "Rectangle select" tool, and click Image -> Crop to Selection. After doing that, go to Image -> Crop to Content. Now you only have the medal there.
  • Go to Image -> Scale Image, and resize the medals, the Juvenile's Jade's height to 320, and Marvellous Moonstone height to 321 (the chain icon [next to the Width and Height values] needs to be linked, so the aspect ratio is preserved), use the default quality interpolation (Cubic).
  • Now, go to Image -> Canvas Size. Unlink both Width and Height canvas size (the little chain icon on the right, on the middle of both Width and Height), and type 512 (for Width), and 384 (for Height), this must be in pixels. Finally, after putting those out, make sure to click "Center" on the Offset section.
  • Done, you have made an Item icon!
You can do the same thing on Paint.NET:
  • Remove the elements unrelated to the Medal using the "Rectangle Select" tool.
  • After that, to crop the content, set your Magic Wand Tolerance to 0% (IMPORTANT), and select a transparent area, now press Ctrl+I to reserve selection, and now press Ctrl+Shift+X.
  • The resize step is the same (make sure to keep "Best Quality" resampling, and "Maintain aspect ratio"), and on the Canvas Size step, uncheck "Maintain aspect ratio", and set the Anchor to "Middle". Paint.NET will add white background on the new areas made with the Aspect Ratio tool, you can remove by setting the Magic Wand to 0% and removing them easily without affecting the medal's colors.

Thank you for your help! I managed to create the icons, but I'm curious: is there a reason why I had to set the heights to slightly different values, one pixel off, during the scale image step? -ThatHatGuy (talk) 01:11, 13 December 2021 (UTC)
Not really. I just compared the two already existing Madness vs. Machines medals, and gave you the height values, so it matches as close as possible with their original variations. While both medals have the same metallic hand on it, the jewel that holds has a different shape, therefore, a small difference on the width image dimension. If I were to give you a % value of how much it should be resized, then there would be a difference in the overall size between both medals' Item icons. But again, I just compared to the existing medals, that's all.
