Half-Life 2 - Custom HEV Arms Skin?

A Forum Thread for Half-Life 2

I want to make a custom texture for the HEV suit arms, but I dont know how!

Does anyone know what I have to edit so I can have a unique texture?

edit: how do I find the hev arms file?

    Photoshop with the VTF plugin is what I use.

    IF you can't afford photoshop, use GIMP with its own vtf plugin.

    VTFedit I recommend and if you're used to the newer Photoshop version but can't get it, FireAlpaca is set up in a pretty similar fashion. Also some beginner tips:

    1. Make backups in case if you mess up

    2. Use different layers and different blends to get unique looks

    3. Make sure you put in the textures in the correct place and with correct spelling

    That's pretty much it for beginner stuff, hope this helps!
    Dang typos.
