Mangled lyrics aside, I wonder if you can get it to line up properly by just using invisible junk?

I mean, everything passes through the flag anyway, so why not make it like this:

Code:
* - - - - * - - - - *
|    F    |    A    |
|         X         |
|         |         |
* - - - - * - - - - *

A = Actual Box
F = Invisible Filler Space
X = Center of the model
This way it's hanging off of his back. If the model is 100 x 100 x 100, for instance, make it 200 x 100 x 100. I'm sure you get the idea by now.

Iunno if this will work but what the hey. Anyone know a way to get it to align properly without cheating like this?

It's far too large to just "carry". I think it actually works best wrapping the player like it is now.

Reduce its size?

Realism isn't exactly a hallmark of Fortress Forever. Maybe 50% smaller would be more reasonable.

It's not realism that's the issue, it's aesthetics. It will just look stupid that large and if I make it smaller it will be too hard to find.

Wait....... I think a Christmas tree would be more appropriate for the flag. Part reason being: If you see a Christmas tree surrounded by presents(pipes, nades, whatever).........
Not only would it be a really cool looking screenshot, but it would make you do a double-take before running in and grabbing it.

It is more appropriate to steal someone's gifts than to steal their tree...

Well, Jester, I personally don't mind the gifts being large, as long as they aren't half the size of the characters... Can we see an example or picture of the size comparison?

It depends what you are specifically wanting to replace with them.

Refer to this: http://www.fortress-forever.com/foru...49&postcount=8
They are slightly larger than a conc as you can see from the halos.

Update: So there is a problem with models replacing the flags, they don't change colors... When I replaced the pipe model(which uses multiple skins also) it worked fine, but when I replace the flag model they are always blue even in the red base. The glow effect changes colors appropriately, but the flag material itself is always blue.

Alright so apparently when I was replacing the flag models a comma was getting deleted in the process so it wasn't using all the materials. I will get screenshots up here soon of the new flag replacement.

The pointer above the gift rotates so it is easier to see over ledges:

Also rotates over player:

Is there any way it can be floating behind the player instead of phasing through him as it is now?
