Changing Color of Models? (SFM)

Fri, 17 Jan 2014 13:10:19


Garry's Mod has had a very useful and simple tool to adjust colors of a model. It worked especially well for the generic male bodies. Is there something similar in SFM, other than directly changing the material file? All I can find are tutorials for TF2 hats and they don't work for every model.

Right click on a model's animation set, click on "add override materials", right click animation set again, show in element viewer > model, then right click on one of the materials of the model whose color you want to change, add attribute, color, then type in $color2, though $color works fine for me.

There's a script on the workshop that makes it a little more convenient to recolor things. ... =216446685

Have finally gotten around to try the $color approach. Works perfectly, thanks!
