Ok, I've made my model - What now?

I recently got some modelling software and I would like to make some models for my map.

I’ve made a basic, shitty model, but I don’t know what to do next.

I have the source modelling thing installed.

Do I just export it and compile (I imagine it’s much harder) and if so, how?

Thanks in advance.

Urgh… Any help?

Find Sourcemdl. in your sourcesdk/orangebox/bin folder and drag the QC And SMD onto it.

You need to export it as an SMD, make a QC(Google it it’s been around 2 months since imodelled) and then do what i said above

studiomdl not sourcemdl but yes drag the QC onto it (or a shortcut to it, there are better ways of doing it but drag and drop is the quickest when starting :)), this is if you have a QC, if not use this one and put your models SMD name where it says “yourmodel”:


$modelname "yourmodel.mdl"
$scale 1
$body studio "yourmodel.smd"
$cdmaterials "models/yourmodel"

$surfaceprop "metal"

$sequence idle "yourmodel.smd" fps 30

$collisionmodel "yourmodel.smd" {
$mass 100.0
$inertia 1.00
$damping 0.00
$rotdamping 0.00
}

yeah like i said i haven’t modelled in a month so only use what i said as GUIDELINES. not full-on tutorial
