Fixes jarate & uber effects, adds partial red team skin

Valve did a horrible hack job on a lot of the MvM models, and the Sentry Buster in particular is really bad. Jarate effects won't show up on the top half of the model, and uber effects won't show up at all. There's also no red team skin at all, though that doesn't particularly matter. This mod fixes some of those problems. Note about sv_pure ------------------ This mod **will not work** on sv_pure servers (including Valve servers). It will only work on servers that don't enforce sv_pure on the files that are modified. Files modified -------------- I edited materials/models/bots/demo/demo_buster.vmt to make the yellow jarate tint apply correctly to the Sentry Buster model. I decompiled models/bots/demo/bot_sentry_buster.mdl with Crowbar and modified it to have 4 skins instead of just 1 (red team, blu team, red invuln, blu invuln), then recompiled. Uber effects now show up correctly on the Sentry Buster model.

    I know this is 2 years old, but there is a Server called "Stop That Tank!" that lets you play as MVM Robots and humans on PL and PLR maps.  (Payloads are replaced by working MVM tanks)

    In the PLR there is a time where you can be chosen to be a sentry buster to take out a bothersome sentry or 2, and this goes for BOTH red and blu, so this addon is PERFECT for the red sentry buster

    Makes the Bug Reporter in TF2 useless.

    Valve doesn't care. They'll leave all kinds of little things broken for years at a time, even if they would be super-easy to fix. And if you try to email them with a bug report telling them how to fix them they'll usually just ignore you.

    I'm no artist, I just messed with the model and texture files so that they would use the uber textures and red team textures that already exist in the game files. Unfortunately, Valve never made a red version of the Sentry Buster top half texture; only a blue version exists.

    I considered photoshopping the blue texture to make a red version, but I quickly realized that I don't know how to recolor stuff in a way that looks very good at all.

    And besides, I am fairly certain that it's impossible to spawn a red sentry buster, since only the populator can spawn them, and I don't think the populator can be convinced to spawn a red-team version even if you tried really hard.

    Yes, it is but I'm afraid Valve doesn't know this.
