View Full Version : Model [Request] Billboard re-skin or new billboard

07-14-2009, 05:09 PM
Basically, I need either a new billboard model, or a couple re-skins of This model ( models/props_mining/billboard001.mdl ) (http://i511.photobucket.com/albums/s359/generatorofchaos/billboardreference.jpg), with almost everything the same except using this billboard (http://i511.photobucket.com/albums/s359/generatorofchaos/Red-Trespassing-Sign-final2.jpg) and this one (http://i511.photobucket.com/albums/s359/generatorofchaos/Blu-Trespassing-Sign-final.jpg).

Alternatively, if anyone finds it easier, I'd be fine with a custom billboard model with those "skins" either... All the same to me... All I want is: Those posters. On a billboard.

it's just a big rectangle. Why not just put a brush over it?

Icarus has a very good point considering that you could save yourself so much time doing it that way rather than decompiling the model, replace the texture with thoses, 2 and recompile it by adding the the two materials as a skins.

If it HAS to be done Im willing to do it, but I just don't really see it being necessary

Possible, but wouldn't that unnecessarily affect performance (even if a little)...?

Or would it still be better than a custom?

Edit, just tried it, works well enough with an invisible brush "wrapped" around the billboard, and the images used as texture.

Thanks guys.

custom = bigger filesize

big brush over it (func_detail!) = booya.

Where did you get those images? If they are yours would it be okay if I used them in a map that I am working on?
