New TF2 Premium Features: Unusual effects, hat colors

Bonbon By Bonbon, in Server News, , 3 comments, 5665 views

Available no later than tomorrow at 3PM PST, VIP members on all of our TF2 servers will be able to attach any unusual particle effect to their hats, and paint their hats whatever color they want! In order to access the new premium menu, simply type !vip, !effects, or !particles


This is all part of a movement to provide more VIP features to TF2, and more features may possibly be added in the (near?) future.


A few notes:

  • Particles, and painting is local to our servers. Once you leave the server, your item will not have your selected color, or particle.
  • Hat colors will not work on all hats for some reason. Examples of hats it won't work on: Ones that are already painted.
  • Once you change your effect, the change will take place when you change your hat, or change your class or team.
  • You must have a hat active to attach particles (duh).

Also, it looks like if you already have an unusual that if you try to change the effect it removes the hat's natural unusual effect and replaces it with the one you choose, but only while in that server. When you go to another server your pre-existing effect returns.
