    I'd like a custom intel model, please. It's gonna be an explosive, so I'm thinking either a big barrel with a fuse or many many stick of dynamite. It's for a western theme. Thanks to anyone who even reads this.

    If i remember correctly, the intel can not be modified for another model.

    Ok, here's the scoop I'm about to say.


    You cannot mod the physical intel file. That is what DrPepper is saying. BUT you can turn off the visuals on the intel.

    What does that mean? You can parent a prop_dynamic to the intel to achieve the look of a custom intel. Papers still fly out the back. It is how I manage a bomb intel in ctf_veritas and eerieone manages his intel in premuda.

    It's allowed in the competition.

    no i meant the actual model being swapped out for another, not the way eerieone did it. which i remember saying he turned off the original and parented his to the default one.

    Drawings, concepts, etc?

    You're not likely to get much in the way of help without those.

    i tried to make my own intel, you cant its connected to some nasty tf2 game files that you cant afford to change unless you want to play by yourself.

    People need to read Magical Potato's post:

    Also, I think a lot of dynamite roughly in the shape of a backpack sounds like it would look better than a barrel with a fuse, but that might just be me.

    Especially since a barrel would be kind of large and I'm pretty sure people would accidentally shoot the barrel which has no hitbox..but I have no idea if it would matter.

    Disregard this; it was for a half-assed project that never went anywhere. However, if someone wants to make one, I'm sure others would find it useful.
