that's because different rockets requires coding, so it's not going to work if you download it yourself.

Not saying this isn't true, but adding 5+ hats to the game would hinder the engine far more.

I'm 90% sure he properly LOD'ed them and purposely keep them 'cheap'.

Now which is more likely and more harmful. Adding 5 more hats that aren't quality controlled or adding five rockets that are?

adding the hats, due to more Unusual options that lag my FPS

I meant it retorically, but yea.
They will add more junk (hats) that mess up the game with no positive impact.
This rockets (seem to be) well made and add to the game.

No unique rockets and no hazmat makes me sad.

Disappointed about the rockets. I can understand how it'd be hard to actually see the model though and maybe not worth it from that standpoint, but I do think that at least the Black Box should get a separate rocket graphic.

You know, this "copyright infringement" thing is bull. I'm not even talking about the Team Captain, which could be a peaked cap. Fine. It's a loose justification, but fine.

Instead, let me bring to light the Vita-Saw. Valve had to get permission from 2K to put it in game because it closely resembled the ADAM Harvester. I can understand not wanting to do this for everyone, but they could at least be forthcoming about it ("We don't want to deal in copyrighted things because we are lazy there's a lot of hassle involved.")

Also their claims for both the "Overall Tone" and "Gameplay" reasonings can be thrown right out the window once you look at this or, to a lesser extent, this. Heck, any of the Grordbort stuff qualifies.

Still, I feel like that all rockets looking the exact same is a problem. :/ We need some clarification between each one.

And what about the Valve themed items? Gaben Vow, Headcrab hat etc. Is Valve going to sue Valve for "copyright infrigement"?

Yeah, it's stupid, that's the reason the Hazmat is incompatible, because it looks like some of the concept art of Pyro. Personally, I think it looks like about every hazmat mask I've ever seen irl.
