1,300 skin submissions this week, which is a figure that has held steady now for several weeks. We noticed that with Facepunch awarding approvals for more modest meshes like stone hatchets and water purifiers, we're starting to see artists move away from armored face masks and assault rifles and more toward the less glamorous meshes, which is a good thing. Everything in the game needs quality skins, not just the top tier items.
Except for a few minor flaws, this large wooden box skin makes for a fairly convincing icebox. Most iceboxes don't have locks built into them, and most of the writing on the box faces the edge of the lid. We have no other nits to pick--it's faded and worn as befits the game, and would really stand out in your loot room. Another sharp skin by La Crampe.
We picked the Hellwalker Reactive Armor by John Sick for the grit and depth of the textures, the fine, asymmetrical details, and the big red plus sign in the middle of the chest so enemies will know where to aim. We also liked the name. We're not really sure what reactive armor is, but it's gotta be better than the tissue paper we've been wearing.
We mentioned Jean-Luc Picard's Biohazard Fridge in Friday's post, and here it is. In case you missed it, Facepunch has introduced refrigerators to the game. No doubt meat spoilage comes next, and where better to store your next meal than a used CDC biohazard fridge? We're sure they're a lot more reliable than consumer models, or they were, anyway.
And while we're on the topic, we would like to humbly suggest players collect ice from cold places rather than generate electricity somehow to keep them chilly.
Welcome to paradise, friend! A faded red skirt with a simple pattern, tattered and dirty from years of wear without proper soap. Lovely garments like this one can be found on beautiful tropical islands, impoverished remove villages, or isolated islands devoted to experimental savagery, like the one you're one.
Battered stop sign armor, La Crampe style. We like the chains, the faded signs, and the rivets in the back. This armor comes with a kilt in the same style. Remember, NEVER walk onto the firing range while the red light is flashing.
This is the kilt armor that goes with the Army Sign Vest we are also covering. Looks like some of the parts came from a Jeep. The left side panel has a bullet belt attached to it, which is a nice touch, and some of the armor serves to hold the rest all together.
V1duk4 has converted a police riot helmet into an American football helmet, but we can't figure out which team. Nice job converting the face shield into a grill, and we particularly like the sloppy paint job and overall battered appearance.
A very fancy bucket helmet by Zufick. You can almost imagine yourself looking noble wearing this thing, if only you had a horse. We like it even though it makes no sense--have you ever seen a gilded mop bucket?
Very convincing texture and stitching on this boonie hat. It looks exactly like genuine fake leather hats sold in low end markets all around the modern world. The artist, Krovv, has several approvals to his name, and seems to specialize in highly convincing textures.
There is a manic quality to the artwork on this box which lies somewhere between graffiti and Mexican folk art. Yes, we know that's a strange comparison, but we stand by it. Anyway, this box is guaranteed to stand out in a loot room, and that's what you want, isn't it?
