    Basically, I need either a new billboard model, or a couple re-skins of This model ( models/props_mining/billboard001.mdl ), with almost everything the same except using this billboard and this one.


    Alternatively, if anyone finds it easier, I'd be fine with a custom billboard model with those "skins" either... All the same to me... All I want is: Those posters. On a billboard.

    Appreciated.

    it's just a big rectangle. Why not just put a brush over it?

    Icarus has a very good point considering that you could save yourself so much time doing it that way rather than decompiling the model, replace the texture with thoses, 2 and recompile it by adding the the two materials as a skins.

    If it HAS to be done Im willing to do it, but I just don't really see it being necessary

    Possible, but wouldn't that unnecessarily affect performance (even if a little)...?

    Or would it still be better than a custom?

    Edit, just tried it, works well enough with an invisible brush "wrapped" around the billboard, and the images used as texture.

    Thanks guys.

    custom = bigger filesize

    big brush over it (func_detail!) = booya.

    Where did you get those images? If they are yours would it be okay if I used them in a map that I am working on?
