How to Override Materials by Nikolad92 How to Override Materials by Nikolad92
In this Tutorial i will explain how you override the materials for models.
Before you ask anything make sure you did this correctly and you didn't skip a step.

Please note! The new material MUST have a new name or pathway! Otherwise SFM will get confused because there is two files with the same name and pathway!

Yes this will also work on models like the soldier, scout and any other model.
They will have a lot more material overrides though. But you do the same thing.

Is this Worth a Like, Comment and Maybe Even an Watcher Too? :D

Take Care Everyone!
Cheers Guys!

I have been doing everything correctly. How much do you have to include for the file path? The whole thing?

Everything after the "Materials" Folder

For example.
This is the whole pathway
"Steam\steamapps\common\SourceFilmmaker\game\tf\materials\models\player\soldier\(Skin name)"

You only need  this part of the pathway
"models\player\soldier\(Skin name)"

How would you use another texture in it's place? For example, if the wooden handle and the actual metal paint job were 2 seperate textures, how would you use the wooden texture in the place of the metal/paint job texture?

If a model has 2 materials, for instance a white texture and black texture, how do I replace the white texture with the black texture?

I guess in that way you need to "re-skin" that.
Or if there is a model with 2 different skins. just change the skin.

No, no. For my case, there are no skins on the model. i.imgur.com/f63YUjv.png I want to replace the purple texture with the white.

Did the the model in SFM got "Purple and Black checked"?
Like "Missing texture"

If you using the cocktail dress femscout then you will have to look trough a lot.
The skins should be called "team_dep" something like that.
Try add the $basetexture to any of them. And if it dosen't change try swap between the skins.

Indeed. If you have multiple models that requires different skins so you don't need to replace all the materials all the time.
