    Hey there, first time poster, long time visiter thanks to all your great tutorials :)

    so in the past months i was trying to catch up with the source/tf2 modeling/compiling process in order to be able to get my models ingame - something i haven't done till the old hl1 days. all the other stuff i worked on was compiled by my buddy :)

    so enough talk :)
    i made simple porthole model, textured and compiled and thought i might share it with you guys, incase you're interested :)
    One thing i'm also not good at, is making rar-archives. So if you download it, you should try to unpack it in the ...team fortress 2\tf-directory - it should then create a "custom_models" folder in each "models" and "materials" directories. I'm sry if it sounds tooo confusing.

    i salute you sir, I will definitely be downloading this, but why not put the download on the site? i almost missed it


    *EDIT*
    these wouldn't happen to be transparent would they?

    sry for the little tease :D

    i decided to not put the model on the download page to see, if you guys can unpack it correctly, or if i should have to change the archive once again so the directories work properly. and maybe i should then also put a readme in the pack ?
    but thanks for the comments and warm welcome so far, guys :)

    lol i think its safe to assume we know how to put models into our tf directories, to be safe though throw in a readme file in just showing an example like

    "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\username\team fortress 2\tf"

    thats what i do for my models anyhow :|

    well, yes of course you know, but since i compiled them in my "custom_models" blabla folders, i thought it might ease things up a bit :)

    i changed the blue glass a bit, btw. i think ill upload the model tomorrow to the section. going to bed now :)

    k, finished another porthole with the updated texture :)
    here's the rar-archive with both portholes. i updated the glass texture on the round one, so it's not that blue anymore. and yes, the glass is transparent :)
    still gotta write the readme file though.

    paths are:

    for the big square one:
    C:\Programme\Steam\SteamApps\username\team fortress 2\tf\models\custom_models\bull_square1

    C:\Programme\Steam\SteamApps\username\team fortress 2\tf\materials\custom_models\bull_square1

    for the little round one:
    C:\Programme\Steam\SteamApps\username\team fortress 2\tf\models\custom_models\bull_auge2

    C:\Programme\Steam\SteamApps\username\team fortress 2\tf\materials\custom_models\bull_auge2

    Would it be too much to ask for just the rim (The model minus the glass)?

    I'm sure it can double as a doorway, or a window frame, so we can suit it with our own glass.

    there you go all the models with no glass included:

    http://acumen-design.de/projects/show/bull_frames.rar

    this time theres one directory for all three models :)
    gotta work on my organization some day :D

    C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\username\team fortress 2\tf\models\custom_models\bull_frames

    C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\username\team fortress 2\tf\materials\custom_models\bull_frames

    hope this can be of any help for you, Void :)

    What's the easiest way to go about putting these in. In order to prevent leaks?
