    [Pack] Colorable default view model arms

    Finally decided to release something, well first thanks for reading this.



    The title says pretty much everything I could describe about this little model pack. After experimenting with how color remapping in GoldSrc works I decided to apply it to the default view models.


    Based on the arm design I decided to just use the first color slider (Topcolor command).


    Topcolor 127



    List of edited models:
    ·v_9mmar
    ·v_9mmhandgun
    ·v_357
    ·v_crossbow
    ·v_crowbar
    ·v_desert_eagle
    ·v_displacer
    ·v_egon
    ·v_flamethrower
    ·v_gauss
    ·v_grenade
    ·v_m16a2
    ·v_m40a1
    ·v_medkit
    ·v_minigun
    ·v_pipe_wrench
    ·v_rpg
    ·v_satchel
    ·v_satchel_radio
    ·v_saw
    ·v_shotgun
    ·v_spore_launcher
    ·v_squeak
    ·v_tripmine
    ·v_uzi




    As of September 3rd, with the 5.06 update the fullbright flag for models was added, so the proper update for this pack is now out.

    Changelog:
    ·Improved Desert Eagle and new Medkit models from Norman.
    ·Fullbright added to view models (desert eagle, medkit, gauss, egon, rpg)
    ·Four arm options (choose wisely, instructions included in the readme.txt file)
    ·Added Adam's gold 357.
    ·Included optional RNG's default handgun with modified origins.
    ·Fixed smoothing in all the arm meshes, and some of the weapons.
    ·Fixed left arm on the SAW shooting animations.

    More screenshots showing the new 2-colored arms



    (Old 5.07 update content ahead)
    Get the download from this little harmful crate

    Dropbox mirror (Thanks KernCore)

    For 5.15 updated viewmodels (Dec 25th update), use this link (Mega). Dropbox Link by KernCore

    Installation is pretty straightforward, make sure to install it in 'svencoop_addon' to not replace the main models (unless you really want to). Please follow the instructions from the readme.txt file.

    Simple credits:
    ·The Sven Co-op development team
    ·Valve software
    ·Gearbox
    ·RNG
    ·Norman
    ·The303 (for a very useful tutorial on how color remapping can be applied to a model)


    Visit The303's site to learn more useful GoldSrc stuff, without it this wouldn't be possible.
    In case you want to decompile the models, consider sending me a PM for resources (with my own UV shifting compensation, might not be perfect). Only if there's no problem for me to actually do that.

    Have a safe and productive day.

    This is awesome. I had no idea topcolor/bottomcolor was supported in view models already.

    That's great. I'll include it in the large view model rework we're going through if the team OK this.

    Yes! Amazing I love this already, though I think maybe the bottom color could be the black strip on the arm?
    Did you know...if you touch a wall you run faster?

    now try it with crates.

    I can work on the alternate texture, with a low saturated colored strip.
    I didn't make it like that in the first place because I only wanted to change the orange colored areas.
    Have a nice day, no matter what you went through it'll all be okay by tomorrow.

    Yeah I can get why the orange is just ech, it's so bland in my opinion, it's nicer that it's blue or any color

    Edit : Could you include this pistol as an option? I just like the updated location of it more

    Edit: Thanks a lot everyone for the feedback, I really appreciate it.

    As requested, RNG's modified Beretta origins
    v_9mmhandgun.rar


    I personally don't really like having 2 colors, might just be the way I look at the arm's design, but if I decide to actually finish it I'll update the link eventually (with also fixed smoothing groups for the arms). The main strip is my current problem.

    It looks alright, just certain colors can make it look horrible it's just nice to see both colors instead of just one as it's fitting, it is harder to make it look good on sven arms as well it's not two seperate things kinda like these two on GB

    I ask, how is progress going on the arms or any other projects that you're doing.

    Re: [Pack] Colorable default view model arms

    I've been on a hiatus but I'll see about an update on this release. Current changelog of what I have:

    ·Fixed smoothing in all of the arm meshes.
    ·Fixed smoothing on some weapons.
    ·Brighter color option.

    Fixing each arm mesh UV alignment, along with the 2 color options are still being worked on.
    Have a nice day, no matter what you went through it'll all be okay by tomorrow.

    Re: [Pack] Colorable default view model arms

    never understood how to create a color map texture. Do you have to recompile or is it enough to just swap the texture with HLMV? is a tutorial anywhere?

    Re: [Pack] Colorable default view model arms

    Texture needs to be set up to the mesh manually, so a recompile would be needed to apply it on the model. Until HLMV can support texture renames, swapping it won't do it.



    This is the tutorial that helped me, and I bet many other people found or will find this useful.
    I obviously take no credits since this is all The303's hard work and research. It shows how to apply it to a player model, but the concept of how color remapped textures work is the same for viewmodels, it's all in the palette.
    Have a nice day, no matter what you went through it'll all be okay by tomorrow.

    Sorry, I'm taking some time off, an update will have to wait. However if I can't update and the candy cane crowbar is gone I'll do the proper update afterwards.
