How to make models & skins *textures also* for gmod!

So you want to make your own props or skins for gmod? Well what about custom textures for source sdk?
I will tell you and IF you still are confused I will also post some urls for youtube videos that help alot of people.

  1. Skins :: So to make a custom skin you must go to…
    mycomputer/c:drive/programfiles/steam/steamapps/user_name/garrysmod/garrysmod/materials/models
    Now pick the area where the specific model skin is. I will just reskin a ragdoll to start because it is the easiest. Now once you clicked models, you click humans? I dont have my computer with me to see but I remember all of it. MOSTLY. So after clicking humans or people or whatever it is, you then click either group1 or group 2 or male or female. I dont remember what goes first but then click whatever character face you want. I click on lance_headmap and I must open it with photoshop. You should also, now once you open it, it should look like a globe of a face just flattened out. So now just edit the face as you want. Once you are done with that just save it as the same name it started as but save it onto your desktop. Make sure the file type is .vmf and in order to get that you need a plug in. The url is http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/index.php?c=154 and just follow those instructions on how to get the plugin into the photoshop files. Once you save it as you should, just go to the original file located somewhere in the gmod folder and just replace that original with your recreation that is saved on your desktop. MAKE SURE THAT THE FACE IS THE SAME AS THE BODY YOU ARE EDITING OR ELSE IT MIGHT NOT WORK THE WAY YOU INTENDED!

Add pictures and get rid of the wall of text and I’ll read it.

Indeed; add pictures and “spread” out the text, so it’s easier to read.

Also; if you werent at your computer and couldnt do the tutorial properly, then why not wait 'till you got home?

Though, I think the links can help me, so thanks anyways :wink:

This tutorial isn’t helpful at all, and you used other people’s video tutorials.

Textures are basically skins in source modding terminology.

so wait this is only for changing the character’s face or is that a facy coder term for “the character your working with”.

and yes I am completely new to this.
