    Really sorry if this has been asked before. I checked the Weapon entities thread and it wasn't listed in there.

    How do I get the Golden Wrench model in Hammer?

    I think the golden wrench shares the orginal wrench model, but just uses a different skin.

    I checked and couldn't find the skin though. I don't know! I did find a secret wrench, though.

    I was going to reply to this a few minutes after you posted, with the same answer as mario, but I actually checked hammer and saw that the wrench models (there's two) have only one skin.

    This is because the golden wrench is actually a unique item, completely separate from the normal one. Sorry, but I actually don't know how to get it in hammer :(

    AFAIK The golden wrench uses the same model, and also the same texture at the regular wrench, only the material uses the gold effect as envmask

    I do know the golden wrench shares the model with the wrench. However its more than just a reskin. From what I understand its basically an "attribute" placed on the wrench to give it its golden look. This condition can be placed on any other model in source. Such as when you kill someone with the wrench, source applies this attribute to their bodies.

    I dont know how the hell your supposed to apply this in hammer, but i hope this helps narrow it down. I think it may have been a beta for paint...

    Odd. Didn't someone leak a Golden Wrench texture file shortly before the Engineer Update?

    "visuals"
    {
    "material_override" "models/weapons/c_items/gold_wrench.vmt"
    }

    This is found in items_game at the golden wrench item.
    Force changes the texture.
