    Thing is, there is this minecart on TF2 that has non-spinning wheels ( models/props_vehicles/mining_car_metal.mdl ). I used that model in my map pl_millstone_event, which metal plates on the sides that mask the wheels not spinning.

    However, i would like to see those wheels spin instead of resorting that method again that i previously used. Cart doesn't have to have any other fuction than spinning wheels, no need to make them not spin as an option, though if that is possible addition, it's fine too.

    I will be using this model in my future map if someone is able to cook up one. Thanks

    Is it going to be only moving or are you ok with a still cart that has its wheels spinning?

    Yeah, it's fine to have wheels only spinning even though the cart is still. I dont plan to have it being visible without moving. So yes, spinning wheels is the only thing i would like to see animated.

    Surely that would be 2/3 animations? Idle (non-spinning), forward and backwards? Then the mapper can set the appropriate animation when they need them.

    This would be ok, incase the cart needs to be used in movement and still too. However, for now i only need the wheels spinning myself since the cart will move a path_track and never stops in visible areas.

    Thanks for the offer. Maybe someday when i find the time, ill dig into modeling. I can't get by without work and that work consumes a lot of my free time. Whenever i'm at home, i need to prioritize my time and modeling isn't quite on top of the pile. Sadly this has been going on for years and it seems that i have some knowledge of hammer that i can make use of, so i invest most of my pc time for that.

    Thanks, but i just need this particular minecart to have spinning wheels for my current use. However, i'll add you if i need anything else to get done in the future that you might help me out with.
