    Could someone mirror the rock/boulder models (the mining ones used in badwater basin and such), I need to mirrored ones for my ctf map.

    Thanks :)

    The meaning of mirrored has been somewhat butchered by you lot.

    Mirroring is entirely different than rotating something 180 degrees.


    Anyway, I would do it, but I would need the SMDs, since I can't seem to get this MDL decompiler to work at all.

    Models, when flipped, simply rotate 180 degrees. See it like this, the rock looks like

    |--

    He needs it to look like

    --|
    --|
    O

    But rotating it 180 degrees results in

    O
    --|
    --|

    Now do you see the problem? On a related matter, I believe I have seen some mirrored rock models on tf2maps.net, take a look at the models section.

    I made mirrored versions of the alpine cliff models which can be found here.

    CTRL + I, CTRL + L

    I think

    (Do this on the top down view, if it doesn't work at first, click on the selected object so it changes the handles then try again.)

    You can not mirror models:

    If you want some hard proof: Why did valve make mirrored versions of some of the payload tracks ;)


    @Selentic/absurdistof
    I have the desert style rocks decompiled on my desktop pc, ask on steam of PM me if you want them. (I don't have time to mirror them myself for you)
