So, I’ve been wanting to make some custom decals for the paint stool for various things, for example: putting messages on Shib’s blank picket sign models.
I have created the image and saved as a 32bit uncompressed TGA. From there, I imported the TGA into VTFEdit and saved it as a VTF. Then made a VMT for it also with VTFEdit. Put them both into garrysmod/materials/decals. After that I went to the gamemodes folder and found the paint.lua in sandbox and plugged in a line so it would appear in the sTools ingame list.
But this fails hard… I try to spray it on a wall or prop and all i get is the spray sound, no image. The default decals work fine like the smiley and blood, etc. Wussup with that? I searched all over the frickin place but cant find a tut on making custom decals. Can someone tell me what I’m doing wrong?
