Just wondering.

Hey. I'm going to be replacing a Combine Soldier model with something else. I've looked at the texture sheet on both of them. They are placed differently. Does this make a difference? Or is the VTF file binded to the model?

    the model is what contains the uv map info - what parts of the texture should be displayed where on the 3d mesh. so if you are wanting to use another texture designed for a different uv layout youll need to edit the model too

    Let me make it a little more clear. It is an edited addon I downloaded a while back for GMOD. It came with it's own model. If I replace the Combine Soldier skin and model with the ones in the addon. Will that work? (Kinda didn't understand what you said...)
    When will the tyranny end?

    you need to use the texture the custom model was created with. dont rename it, the model itself knows where to look for it. make sure to use thesame relative path from the game directory. depending on the nature of themodel you may have to recompile it to correctly replace a character model (animations etc).
