The Unnecessary Weapon Icon Revamp Project

Hello, everyone. I’m… Colossal. Of course. You may know me as the creator of the Foliage Spawn Packs, or you may be thinking, “who da fuck iz dis kid?”

Well, I’m Colossal. Nice to meet you. Moving on. I’m looking into game developing and I want to start out small. So far I’ve released a skin, I’m on a mod team, and I beta tested the Portal mod “Aperture Deja Vu” (Lemonosity in the credits). And I don’t know about you guys, but the icons used for weapons in Gmod really fucking piss me off. So if you’re like me, and you know how to do this, and you want to help; reply. If you don’t fit in any or all of those three things. Don’t.

Moving on some more.

I was wondering what I call the files/icons and if they need to be VTF or not. I also need to know where I put these files. EXACTLY where to put them. So far, I’ve created one, and you can see it here:

That’s my new toolgun icon. I was wondering if I should keep it black or if I need to change it to a certain color, too. I have a lot of free time, so I don’t really mind a lot of work. Thank you if you help even a little, and thank you for reading this.

Ok. Sorry for trying to make an addon. I completely understand now that no one wants anymore custom content for Garry’s Mod. No matter how much work was put into it.

Its pretty much unneeded, but I could help out with some stuff.

For starters, I made your avatar transparent + made the toolgun a bit more orange glowy transparent thing.

In case you dont like the orange glowy one, heres the black transparent one.

Maybe people just aren’t interested in new weapon icons. After all, we already have a batch of 'em.

@Hakita: I don’t want people to do it for me. I just want people to tell me how to do it. And I have a transparent version of my avatar, I’m just not using it.

@Esalaka: I know a few people that hate the default toolgun and camera icons with every fiber of their soul. I just want to make the icons so people can have them if they want them. It’s like EVERY addon. If you want it, get it. If you don’t, then don’t.

Well sorry for trying to help.
