Viewmodel Transparency

TL;DR let us adjust viewmodel transparency.

I was thinking about how better it is to play wit your viewmodel on, specially on the point that some weapons really get in your way while shooting. And i was thinking how good it is to play your viewmodel on the whole feeling level.

So i came up with the idea of having the option to adjust your viewmodel transparency, ilustrates on this images: 50% transparency and 70% transparency

As you can see, english is not my first language, so i may have said something very wrong or wasn't able to make myself clear, i appologise if that's the case.

I always laugh when people with impeccable English mention it is not their first language. So sad to then compare to it some of the kids nowadays.

Oh yeah, brilliant idea too.

Already seen before e.g. http://www.gotfrag.com/tf2/forums/thread/431153/

Doesn't mean it's not a bad idea at all, I would definitely use this if implemented!

Absolutely YES. it would be an even nicer addition if the transparency could, through an option, be extended to things like the Pyro's Flame particles and the Soldier's Rocket smoke trail.

I assume you mean friendly flames, not enemy ones. The sight-blocking is part of the Pyro's balance.

But yeah, great idea, I approve.

The minigun isnt the problem. Its his huge BEAR HANDS

Especially when you eat a steak sanvich only to have the glowing yellow bear hands block 50% of your screen with lightning.
