The Beta Plan!
created
Following the great example of and supported by (see rep) Chicken Nugget's (original) Hat Bank: http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/248254, I started a:

==============================================================================================================
Uncraft Hat Bank v1.1
==============================================================================================================

==============================================================================================================
Some people just don't have the metal funds (yet) to buy all kinds of fancy hats, but uncraft hats aren't that expensive.
Now you have a place where you can get uncraft hats for a small fee, just like the original hat bank.
And who doesn't want a cool hat? : http://www...9o63_A

Be warned that I hold the right to reject a trade - this bank is to get less wealthy people hats, not for people with unusuals e.g. to trade a batter's helmet for a blighted beak as to make a profit.

All available hats are on page 7 and 8 of my bp: http://www.tf2outpost.com/backpack/40902

===== [The hat of your choice] FOR [any uncraft hat of yours] + [1 scrap] * =====

* If you want a higher class hat (see below), you must also add the additional difference.
* If you give me a higher class hat, you do not need to add the 1 scrap fee
* Please do not only dump class 0 hats into the bank, otherwise this well will run dry quickly.
* The metal that is earned by the bank, goes bank into the bank. ;)

--------------------------------------------------------- OR ---------------------------------------------------------

You can buy any hat with metal!

The following hats are considered class 0: Prussian Pickelhaube, Professional Panama, Batter's Helmet, Glenarry Bonnet, Respectless Ruber Glove, Pyro Beanie, Football Helmet - costs 1 reclaimed

The following hats are considered class 1: Demoman's Fro, Texas Slim Dome Shine, Baseball Bill's Sports Shine, Alien Parasite, Mining Light, Tyrant's Helmet, Fancy Fedora, Soldier Stash, Trophy Belt, Bonk Helm, and Texas Ten Gallon - costs 5 scraps

Every hat that is worth clean 1.33 (Check http://www...ot.nl/ ) is considered class 2 as uncraft hat - costs 2 reclaimed
For every hat that is worth 1 reclaimed above 1.33: +1 scrap
Per 2 reclaimed steps of paint value: +1 scrap
Double paints: +1 scrap
Level 42 or Level 100: +1 scrap
Misc (instead of hat): +1 scrap
If you are confused, feel free to ask

I am aware that this formula tends to become invalid with highly conveted uncrafts like the Team Captain or Last Breath - I do not expect these hats to appear often in the bank for that very reason. It has happened before, but I assume it will be very rare.

If you want to sell a hat for metal than I refer you to the buying thread here: http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/2639433

You should REALLY not accept batter's helm or those kinds of hats

Your hat bank is filled with them -___-
The Beta Plan!
It is for less fortunate people to get new hats. I actually did sell low level hats, they just move a lot lot slower. When I will get too many I will stop, but for now I accept them

I will be home in about 6+ hours. If you are here to sell for metal only, notice that the bank has currently no metal in order to buy hats.

If it is alright to ask, if you ever happen to run across a Dirty big country, may I per chance buy it off you? I can trade you a dirty ten gallon for it :)
The Beta Plan!
Big country would be a higher level, if I ever obtain it, so you would have to add a bit - see the pricing, but I'll see what I can do. :)
Cottonbonbon
I don't mind adding a bit if you ever obtain one (that is of course if I don't happen to get one beforehand, yay tf2outpost logics :3), so if you do run across one, just let me know if I don't let you know on my end if I get one :)
Cottonbonbon
Also thank you, I appreciate any help ^-^
Cottonbonbon
Update time; I've managed to get myself a big country, but I'll definately still bookmark this page since I know I'll probably get more uncrafts in the future (I really like uncraft hats :D) So, if you want to hide this post, you can :) Also, keep up the awesome work!; dirty hats definately deserve some loving :3

i don't know how to figure a dirty l'inspecteur with black paint because it has a price range on spreadsheet, i would assume you'd go for lower cause you would be the buyer in this case (it's 1.66-2 ref for clean l'inspecteur by the way), and i'm not sure how you'd figure paint value (unless you take it face value spreadsheet, which also has a price range, but i'll assume 5 ref because once again you're buyer and lowest price range and all that)
if you do follow all of this, and i followed your formula correctly, would it come out to be worth something like 0.77 + 0.77 for paint (which would be 1.44 total)?
also, are you directly buying/selling dirty hats with the extra metal you get from transactions or are you strictly trading hat for hat + fees?
dqbert
actually i sold the l'inspecteur, but i bookmarked, so i might be back later, could you answer just my second question now?
The Beta Plan!
In order to answer your second question: you can see in this post that I also sell hats directly for metal (see below the OR line) and yes I also buy them for metal see: http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/3053208
dqbert
ok i've bookmarked both of these, you can hide these if you want
The Beta Plan!
Oright, P.s. I would indeed have payed more than 1 refined for your black l'inspecteur

The Beta Plan!
nope, the head warmer is worth way more. Also I am flooding in mining lights and soldier stashes.
Kaynek
Just a question here.
If the hat has a price range for like, 1.33-1.66.
Do you consider it as 1.33 or 1.66 using your formula?
Thanks.
The Beta Plan!
Depends slightly how common the uncraft is. That is pure experience. Some I count as 1.66 others as 1.33
Kaynek
Alright, thanks.
If you have a dirty hotrod, ze goggles, prairie heel bitters, builder's blueprints, texas half pants, or physician's procedure mask, please alert me. I'm buying them.

I have a dirty blueprints currently, if you are still interrested
Could I downgrade from a craftable? And if not, what would you charge for the dirty?
The Beta Plan!
I would charge 1 ref for it and please no downgrades as I am not really a seller of craft items that will take me a huge amount of time
I could do that. Added.

My dirty Texas Ten Gallon + scrap for Magistrate's Mullet.
☜Jabberwock☞
Or is it 2 scraps?
The Beta Plan!
Normally 2 scraps, but unfortunately the Magistrate's Mullet has been reserved.
☜Jabberwock☞
I see. Well, I'll wait for another chance then.
☜Jabberwock☞
What about the ceremonial?
☜Jabberwock☞
Is it reserved as well?
The Beta Plan!
No, it is not - I am just also working - so I am not constantly on.
☜Jabberwock☞
Well I'll take the sultan then.
The Beta Plan!
I do count a sultan as a 1.66 hat, so that would make 3 scraps - just a heads up if you are fine with that just add me
♥LuLi♥ Daisuke
I suppose the dirty Triad Trinket falls outside of the normal price range. How much do you want for it?
The Beta Plan!
Sorry I was away on a holiday, I would ask 3.66 ref.
