How to change eye texture by Nikolad92 How to change eye texture by Nikolad92
Well. Because i'm going to release eye re-skins soon then i will release this tutorial so you won't ask me how to change the texture.

VTF edit: nemesis.thewavelength.net/inde… (Get the installer)
Notepad++ : notepad-plus-plus.org/download… (Get the installer)

Also a special thanks to :iconlurioasplund: for telling me how to do this.

I may have a Question, i did the same way like you. But my problem is, that the modified eye color shows in SFM pretty bright. I mean it. really bright like there is no more life in it.
Now i searched for a Solution and found you. I hope you can help me.

Can you render a close up picture on the eyes so I can see it?

Aah. I see. Well. this is a common problem eyes because they are using a "layer mask" that can mess up things. And when you make a custom skin then many usually forgets to fix the mask.
The best solution would be to trick the system by making the skin nearly transparent (Like 95% transparency).

If you want you can send me the VTF and i can fix it.

And how I do it? What do i need to change

I can give you the VTF : ) but example if I create a new eyer color than i can´t come back to you every time. It would annoy you and i dont like to annoy people :(

If you use an editing software like Gimp, Paint.Net or Photoshop then you need to reduce the layer opacity to a veeeery low number like 5-10% opacity (or units, depending on which software you are using.

And here is the fix
Fix: Eye Iris Xans Fix
Hope it helped!

Incase anyone is interested, there is a different way to change the eyes, without editing the VMT's.

Use the material override command, but in the element viewer under the materials for the model, add a string attribute to the left and right eyes, and add "$iris" instead of $basetexture" for the attribute name, and then type the location of the new eye texture in the new material slot as you would for any other texture.

Don't know if this is common knowledge or not, but i just found it and figured I'd share.

This trick also allows multiples of the same model to have different eyes

ok. Where have you placed the eye textures?
I want you to tell me the whole pathway from the start (like tf, usermod, workshop and etc).
Maybe i can spot your problem.

The placement is correct.
Then you must have made a mistake in the VMF (the text file) file.
