So I’ve started to make basic custom models for tf2 for use as the models for ff2 hales I’m making for a tf2 server on which I’m an admin. The models are pretty basic and consist of nothing more than the default tf2 class models with cosmetics stuck onto them, I use GCFscape to extract the model files, blender to render and export the models and crowbar to compile/decompile model files. There are no problems with the process of actually producing the models themselves, everything goes smoothly until I open up the half life model viewer to find that any cosmetics that are community created/from the steam workshop have missing textures on them. Anything that was made by valve themselves is completely fine and appears as normal but otherwise, missing textures.
I’m only a very basic modeller and I have no idea why this is happening, its essentially killing my models. I’ve searched the internet for possible solutions but nothing is coming up, any help would be greatly appreciated.
