Adding Multiple Texture

I am working on ripping models and props from games for gmod & I keep getting stuck at adding texture Is it VTF & VMT or TGA Files I need for textxure I can’t find any tutorial on this


What program are you using to handle the 3d models? I’ve had no problems using TGA to apply textures to a model in 3ds Max.

For textures that Gmod reads, VTF and VMT are what you are looking for. If you have Photoshop, there is a VTF plugin available.

I use 3dmax and change the dds files to tga in vtfedit

You should be able to drag and drop the tga texture into Max’s material editor. Select the part of the model using editable mesh/editable poly with face, polygon, or element selection and select the part of the model you want to apply the texture to. The apply the texture, use the box highlighted in the picture. Here I selected by element.

Why does that remind me of Shadow of the Colossus?

Thanxs for the help but I narrowed down the materials to one :smiley:

What do you mean? The model only uses one texture?

it had four materials but three of them were for other crap i didn’t want
