So I’ve made a few maps and I’ve got a hang of most of the tools, but for the life of me, I can’t figure out how to scale or rotate a decal once I’ve placed it on a brush. If I drag the box bigger or rotate it, it just snaps back to its old size.
You can’t rotate or scale decals (unless they are custom, in which you could just modify the $decalscale parameter of the .vmt file).
Your only other option if the decal isn’t custom, is to use an overlay.
Thanks guys; overlays are working perfectly.
Remember not to go overboard with overlays though. I’ve run into the limit of 512 overlays.
Now I usually make it a decal unless it really has to be an overlay.
