    Mirror'd Tracks by Pitto

    These are the branch pieces of track that valve has,
    but mirror'd to support plr maps in particular
    When using them don't forget to pack them into the bsp

    Installation:
    Extract the pitto folder to: \Steam\SteamApps\<steam user name>\team fortress 2\tf\models

    The pieces can be searched in the model browser using 'track' like the other track peices
    In the pictures the valve models are in the gravel area, my models are in the sandy area.

    Don't bother with credit
    all I did was decompile, mirror and recompile

    Why:
    While these track pieces can be made from a straight 256, and a 96 s bend/90 degree bend, the overlapping of the wood slats looks ugly, and usually ends up in z-fighting (flickering textures)

    This is the first time I have decompiled and compiled a model, so if there are any errors please let me know, and I will fix.

    These are perfect! Really wanted to use some of Valve's older track props in a PLR map but were unable to manage suitable equivalents. :)

    hmm, that is weird fearlezz
    they seem 2 be working fine for me in plr_solitude (I think u were in one of the playtests)

    As long as it is in the folder team fortress 2\tf\models\pitto\props_mining
    it should be fine, the materials are the same as the others

    Has anyone else successfully used these?

    Ok I'm not sure which update this was a part of, but the 90 degree split track now has an official model, the s bend one still doesn't though, so that is still useful

    Thanks, just what I needed. Frustrated me that the y split is what I needed, but the official model only went the opposite direction I needed it to go.
