Making a Animated Water Texture

Hey guys i’m making a map, and I want to make my own, animated water texture… But, how to do it? I hope you guys can give me any links or sites that can help me.

Making your own water textures is thankfully just a matter of editing the current Source water .VMT files. There shouldn’t be any .VTF modifications unless you really want to get custom with your water.

Here is the Valve wiki on water .VMT’s:

Well I just want to know how the .VTF is made. Because, does the .VMT file make it move, or does the .VTF file move?

The .vtf should be the animated texture to help refract. The .vmt is for moving the water around, reflect amount, water move speed, fog color, water colour, ect…

Okay, thanks.
