NEED HELP WITH FIRST RESKIN

Im trying to reskin the framed pictures/paintings in gmod, but i cant find the VTF files for them anywhere, ive even gone into GCFScape and havent had any luck, does anyone know where the model files are for default spawn items in garrys mod? like the framed pictures?

They are inside the .Gcf file’s.
Like “team fortress 2 content.gcf”

You need gcfscape to open and extract them BTW.
Good luck making your first perskin!

i already tried that but couldnt find them

Try downloading the SDK and opening the model in HLMV - it lists the textures and paths to them.

Depends what frame are you talking about.

There is one where alyx’s mom and dad are there.
or your looking for the Cs_office picture frames.

You got to show a picture.

im looking to reskin these

but my problem is idk where garrysmod gets its files from, does it load the from HL2? or from the game itself, besides that ive already looked into HL2 and garrysmod folders and found nothing, no VST.

ive already tried gcfscape too

LIKE WHERE DO THESE COME FROM

It’s from hl2.
you do know that a model is seperate from it’s material’s?
First find the name of this frame’s from gmod. and search their name’s on these gcf’s.

source materials
source 2007 shared materials
half-life 2 content
half-life 2 2007 base content.gcf

It’s mostly the material’s your after. cause your only re skinning it.
