User file

Hi Cheddar,

Please add "User Cheddar" in front of any file you intend to use on your user space, for example "User Cheddar Profile Picture.png". No need to upload the image again, I already changed the file's name. Please also add Category:User images to the image summary.

Demonic Dome images

Hi there,

Please note that cosmetic images can use the template {{classimg}} to automatically add the right license and category, note that every image is required to have the correct license and category. Please also see this page and this page on a guide for how to make cosmetic images, your current ones are not made in HLMV, not cropped at all, have weird quirks (such as weapon poses without a weapon, Medic's arm bending in a weird way, Demoman's hand is disconnected from his sleeve, etc.) that do not fit the current standard. Please also remember to name the files appropriately, several of the files don't have the cosmetic item's name capitalised as it should.

HLMV images

Hi there. I saw you uploaded some cosmetic preview images to the wiki, but I just wanted to point some things out so if you upload in the future then it's all fine and dandy.
- Make sure to use the HWM models instead of the in-game models, the HWM models are used in the SFMs and look better than the in-game ones.
- You should have your Anti-Aliasing settings to the max, you can achieve this by using HLMV++ or by changing your dxsupport.cfg.
- For background removal, you can use HLMV++'s screenshot feature or use a black and white background, I'm noticing a blur/feather effect in your images.
- Zoom out the image and select a pose, cosmetic preview images are more zoomed out and have poses, you can see some examples here
- Make the facial flex less exaggerated, your Demoman Mean Captain image for example has a really big smile, again you can check for examples here
- Make sure your images aren't too wide, if you're images are too wide then they look too small on pages, I would not go above 1000px.

Those are the tips I have, I recommend taking a look at the Cosmetic Images help page and Gabrielwoj's HLMV guide as well. If you have any questions then feel free to leave a message on my talk page or add me on Steam or Discord.

For someone who just started contributing to the Wiki, you already got the hang of creating high quality images! Even map screenshots as well! On the few uploaded images that could be better, Cheddar made sure to go back and remade it again, following the feedback posted on his talk page and our chat via Discord. Not every new image creator starts by uploading new revisions of images that need improvement, so, this is a well achieved wikichievement.

Wanderer's Wool Backcountry style

There should be slight difference between the blu and red version of Backcountry style, if my memories were correct the blu version is a bit brighter than red version. I will (or won't, depend on if it rly have diffrence) make that image myself later (its midnight in my time zone while I left this message) if you don't wish to or can't make it for some reason

Profiteer(奸商)the tryhard (talk) 16:31, 13 December 2023 (UTC)

Yeah I just double checked and the difference is there actually, I'll add it back.

Images on Cozy Cover-Up

Hey Cheddar, I noticed that the 'Painted variants' section of Cozy Cover-Up seems to be showing a non-team-specific unpainted image (which doesn't exist). Could you please double-check your image names (or however that template works) to fix it? Darkid « TalkContribs » 09:34, 5 February 2024 (UTC)

I've just made a redirect, now gotta wait for the cache so I can do the blue redirect. Thanks for letting me know! CheddarTalk 09:52, 5 February 2024 (UTC)

Hello, Cheddar.

While I thank you for remembering articles have translations and for doing your part on updating them, I'd also like to remind you to add {{update trans}} at the top of translations that you're unable to fully update.

The unused syringe

Hey Cheddar! I greatly appreciate the revisions on the 3D images you've been uploading lately. How hard would it be to make ones for the unused weapons? We already have a few of them for the Nail Gun and Grenades, but what about the Syringe seen in the trailer? --ShadowMan44 (talk) 23:11, 19 February 2024 (UTC)

Should be simple to do, if there is a model available, preferably the original model rather than a recreated one, I'm unaware if the Nail Gun and Dynamite Pack are the actual beta models though or remakes.

Unused painted variants

Hello, Cheddar.

The {{Painted variants unused/Notes}} template does not fully use automatic translation - it still requires editors to set it to "singular" or "plural" (which can change depending on the language; for example, the Medic Mech-Bag's name is singular in English, but it's plural in Russian) and the paintable element to be manually translated.

It's a good start, however, I believe that the "Non-Green" should be renamed to "Merasmus alt" to match with the naming of most 3D views that have different skins, the pose itself is quite long, causing it to be rather zoomed out. I would advise playing around with the animation sliders in HLMV and seeing if you can get a more unique pose similar to how the class 3D views are.

Thanks

Hi, I'm Scorchshotgaming. If you don't know I tried to make a weapon demonstration for the Cleaner's Carbine earlier; it was a nightmare. It freezing and crashing, me trying to troubleshoot and fix it, only then to fail, was miserably difficult to deal with. I know it was a while ago, but I just want to say that you reserving right after I gave up was nice because that meant I didn’t have to continue with this nightmare. All I want to say is, thanks, and what you did really was apples mate!

Yours sincerely, Scorchshotgaming Scorchshotgaming (talk) 21:16, 7 May 2024 (UTC)
