Editing css weapon materials

I want to edit a css deagle to make it red,Does anyone know how i can do this?

You can edit .vtfs in Photoshop if you get a plug-in. You’d probably have to grab the materials/models with GCFScape and then go into your CSS file and find the .vpk file that has _dir in the name.

A good, simply way of recolouring stuff on Photoshop is to create a new layer, colour it in red and then set the layer transparency to a vaguely low amount you’re happy with. I reskinned some Pointshop items, like the afro this way and it looked pretty decent.

Thank you :slight_smile:

If that’s all you’re doing you can simply make a translucent red VTF and add it to your server, then call entity:SetMaterial(“my/material”) and it will overlay that effect ontop as a Material Override.
