There should be a way to reload/refresh the model while in Item Test map.

Ingame itemtesting looks good, BUT...

Q: What are the steps to making an item?

A: Here are broad steps involved in making a 3D item:

1. Concept: Come up with a good idea in words. Trust us, this is the hardest part.
2. Design: Draw in 2D or 3D what it will actually look like.
3. Model: Using a 3D program, create the clean polygon model that will actually be in the game.
4. Pelt: Unwrap the 3D model like a bearskin rug (UVs) so you can texture map it.
5. Paint: Using your UVs as a guide, pick a color. Paint a color. Repeat.
6. Skin: Bind the model to a joint for articulation.
7. Compile: Use itemtest and don’t forget to make an LOD!
8. Test: Load the itemtest map and look at your item on the character.
9. Publish: Upload it to the steam workshop!
... LOD in SDK itemtest should be optional. From my POV it looked like this:

7. Compile: use itemtest and FAIL, you have to create LOD before this step!
The forced LOD is annoying if you just want a quick test, how the new item looks ingame.

Unusual effects are broken in itemtest now. I used to be able to test stuff by using the TF2 Beta itemtest but now it is broken there as well as of today's TF2 Beta update. Effects simply don't show up at all now.

My only problem is that itemtest is not good for making weapons at all

You need to make it so itemtest in the sdk does not only make hats

It would be great if itemtest actually worked with Unusual Effects

I haven't made any items since my tutorial. Has item test been updated yet?
