This is my third custom model ever. It adds a ribbon to the payload cart, which comes in three flavors: Red, Yellow and Blue.
It was made with Blender, a really powerful opensource/free 3D application. www.blender.org
The UVs were made in Blender and the textures were painted in Blender too.
The model was then exported to .smd file and compiled.
Text of readme:
This is a model replacement for the tf2 payload cart (doesn't replace the red payload cart in payload race) that adds a ribbon to it. It was made for a custom map but after user feedback I decided to create a model replacement from it.
-- The ribbon comes in three flavours: Red, Blue and Yellow.
-- The default one is yellow. To change it to other colors, open one of the color folders and copy the tf folder inside it to
-- X:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\\team fortress 2
VALVe for base payload model and textures
TerabyteST (Gabriele Cirulli) for the ribbon and ribbon textures
Copy the tf folder in X:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\\team fortress 2 and replace any file if prompted
You will have to delete the props_tera folder in tf\materials\models and the props_trainyard folder in tf\models
