    Ok, so I have really no idea on what to donate for, I really do not want player models but I will if requested but I feel as if it will only service a few people instead of to where clothing will be available toward every character along with weapons. We need more Soviet-era weapons, the one thing I hate about HL2 was when everyone had a fully automatic 5.56 rifle or better and it might as well just be Terminator, anyways I was thinking like PPSH Drum Mags or Tech9's or pipe weapons along with some clothing, but I will hear what everyone has to say.

    So, post here on what you want and I will make it happen if that's what we feel as a community would help enhance the experience of this new iteration of HL2.


    (Edit) Keep in mind it is a few weeks out so we got some time but I am ready when around 4-5 hundred worth of items has been reached I will donate everything at once. So whenever we can fill it I will send it, now I would like to send it all to Tanknuts patreon but for all the items it is not just Tank (Though it will al go through the panel), Dave does have to do work on it as well. However on launch I am going to send Tank a nice gift through the patreon on top of it all. I think in total a fair number of items will be 8 in total so just think of what you want and post pictures or links to items or just ideas either or isn’t fine.

    Factor in when tech ended. Late Soviet era weapons are the go for those scripts. AK-74Ms and the 100 series, SAIGAs and Mosins. As time goes on and the Union's more established I'd imagine more and more NATO weapons would be phased in.

    I wouldn't gun for rebel stuff just yet. With the opening focus of the server being set on the citizens for the most part (with the CCA and CA respectively playing their roles) and no real organized resistance kicking off immediately I'd actually say go for generic clothing to get the quickest bang for your buck as well as the largest impact.

    Different colors of citizen uniforms. You remember those green ones we had last iteration? What if we had a red-ish one to go with it? What about different kinds of coats with citizen clothing underneath? St. Petersburg is a bit further north, imagine how cold it must get sometimes.

    Short sleeve, long sleeve. Hell, go the whole nine yards and get variants of clothing that might be dirty-looking; caked with ash or dirt.

    People have already mentioned glasses. How about different kinds of hats? All we had were those stocking hat/beanies last iteration.

    Bonus points if you convince @TankNut to let us walk around with our briefcases as actual hand-held items (that could even be used as a melee weapon....)

    Guns are for nerds.

    I want to see more clothes for citizen, especially new headgear choices like caps, flat-caps, glasses, also new shirts and pants, too.

    Honestly what about some props?

    Seriously more props fitting the Russian aesthetic would help when you're setting up a building or work area. Old Soviet metal crap, yada yada.

    rebel stuff is sure cool but I think the idea is to keep the resistance more grassroots for the time being when shit actually begins to kick off.

    leave military gear behind I say

    This is why I made this thread, if we had it my way there would end up being watt weapons day one. No not really but I probably would just do vests and guns, I really do wanna do citizen clothing variants, I wonder if @Davebrown would make me a good deal on a variety pack, because at 60$ a model we won’t go far even at 8-10 models.

    I'm super serious about a briefcase SWEP btw not only is that incredibly immersive to be able to hold your briefcase out but also the ability for citizens to use their briefcases as a blunt weapon when push comes to shove feels like it would be really cool.

    Is there anything of use that the CCA could have that wouldn't feel out of place or isn't going to exist at some point already?

    I suppose if you really wanted you could donate for each squad to have its own in-game armband color and the CCA uniforms would be "JUDGE Uniform + Gear", "UNION Uniform + Gear" or something.

    Head items have to be present on your model as a headgroup much like the old HL2. You'll have to sacrifice an existing item like your bandana, gasmask, or beanie if you want a special head.

    Exosuits aren't a thing in HL2 so donating for a special and global head like TRP pilots helmets aren't a good idea.

    Just because there isn't any exosuits doesn't mean that the equip slot for it can't be implemented for things like that.

    I'd rather have a deal of choices without having to get an individual model to represent something so minor. Glasses, scarves, cigarettes should be all-encompassing.

    Your best bet isn't to donate for something that has no priority in the script's future development is all I'm saying. In the future, maybe, but hold your breath on it for now.

    We're talking about citizen clothing, do you think I'm talking about exo-suits being in HL2 for some reason?

    In either case people are gonna donate for what they wanna donate for.

    No. But the mechanic of exosuit equiping works the same way as you're implying here. It'll be a model thrown on top of a model.

    Global head items will have to be blown up to comedic proportions to work on all models which isn't good.

    the cca doesnt need anything imo

    customization is not a priority or fitting




    also hot take but rebels should really just have citizen oriented shit until we get s2 up

    melee weapons are the new wave, so a variety in them

    Beyond say, different colored armband or vests. But we *have* those already.

    I'll just go ahead and say it now before any of this actually gets off the ground.


    Playermodels? I don't care if you make those public or private or whatever. But I'm not going to deal with another iteration full of "This weapon/clothing option is private to me/my friends/my faction". Keeping it off business menus and making it something that's not available by default is fine but if another players gets their hands on it through legitimate means then tough luck.

    More default models would be appreciated by a lot of people. If we're still using the same base playermodels as our last few servers then particularly the black/Asian female department is lacking.

    It's hard to say what clothing items would be needed since I haven't had a look at what's available yet, but some of the stuff that replaced beanies/gas masks for some donator models on HL2 would be good to start with (baseball caps, bandanas, ski masks, et cetera)

    the more clothing variants the better. beanies, flat caps, ball caps, glasses, sunglasses, masks, etc for head.

    different colored boiler suits, maybe dirty/torn versions. that refugee sweater that isnt covered in the cwu text and weird orange sleeve logo, maybe a boiler suit that's hanging open with a wifebeater underneath? coats. jackets. maybe some dress shirts/slacks/suits for the CA types?

    also various default faces, like others said.

    I'd love some not military camouflage clothing. Maybe a not as edgy trench coat as well.

    One of my biggest things I wanted to donate for in TRP but never got around to because of my whole move was donating for a load of bags. On HL2 we only had the like 2 different backpack models. So if ya'll wanted that I'll help pay for that along with some of the other public donation content on that list with Tunnel.

    dont think dave takes anything from p3dm anymore, too much of a hassle or something along those lines. could be wrong cause I heard it secondhand.

    please remember to leave models if you're asking for something entirely new and not just a reskin/readd.

    Well what you can do with like what I did with the old Gambino vest was just take a model and make it a uniform but then the problem with that is if that your character does not share the same skin color/gender as the uniform it gets kinda jank but either way all up to you.
