fuckfuckfuck!why is the map or models checkered pink and black?!
Ok the reason for this is because you dont have the texture.a texture is basically a picture.So for example,ya know that grass ya see on flatgrass?thats a texture.walls on construct?texture.sky?texture.Get it? okay so back on subject. if its checkered pink and black(ill just say checkered from now on),it means your missing the texture.Most of the time it just means you dont have the game it gets the texture from.So say you have half-life,and downloaded the tactical sweps pack.Notice you see the arms,but they’re checkered.thats called a model.a model is basically an object. so a desk is an object.you would call that a model in-game.Okay i know you’re quite confused right now.so lets simplify it. think of a model as a white wall.Now,think of textures as paint.okay white walls really arent that pretty right?so were going to paint them(texture them).okay now we have a pretty painted wall!(textured model)Now im ready to show it to the world!
