Need help with this QC file

I really need help with this QC file, this is my first time trying to make one and so far i’m failing at it, please help :D!

How my files are setup
(All files are on a folder on the desktop)

starwars
models
planter
starwarsplanter.qc
starwarsplanter.smd
materials
planter
starwarsplanter.vmt
starwarsplanter.vtf

Here’s my qc file

$modelname “models\planter\starwarsplanter.mdl”
$scale 1.0
$model “Body” “starwarsplanter.smd”
$cdmaterials “models\planter”
$sequence idle “starwarsplanter.smd”
$surfaceprop “metal”
$collisionmodel “starwarsplanter.smd” {
$mass 50.0
}

I keep getting this error “bad command $”
If anyone could help me, I will love you forever!

-snip-

rather irrelevant but maybe you wanna change to this


$modelname "sugarprops\planters\starwarsplanter.mdl"

removes the double “models” and/or throws into a ‘proper sorted’ directory.

now the question is how you compile it? what sort of program window ‘tells’ you that “bad command $”

Try resaving your QC as ANSI

Is it only saying 'bad command ', and nothing comes after the ?
