Nahka's pony compiling tutorialNOTE: This tutorial is a little outdated ever since the Steampipe -update at summer 2013! Most of the tips still work but the SDK in this tutorial won't, so you'll have to use SFM's SDK instead. Yes, even if you are compiling for Gmod.More Like This
In this tutorial I'm going to tell you how to set up some tools, how to compile models for Source and some ways that are useful for model development, at least in my opinion. This is specifically meant for my male pony source files, so some ways may or may not work for other models due to the way I work on them.
This might not be suitable for beginners even though I'll try to explain this as well as possible, so if you're fairly new to Gmod, I suggest you try to learn some basics first about how the engine handles models, materials and textures.
Oh and this stuff can't be explained by pictures for the most part. You just have to read... A lot...
