I'm going to get straight to the point: I need a model hacking tutorial for source, and I need it to list all of the programs necessary for doing so. I want to be able to do things like hacking models together (ie aimpoints, scopes, vert grips etc) and re-releasing models for different weapons (with proper permission of course). Don't bother linking to the pre-existing tutorial; that thing is so incoherent and poorly spelt it would make JEFF K. shake his head in shame. If the tutorial is really well done, is thorough, and is well-formatted, I'd be more than happy to donate points for it.

    You need MS3D or 3DSMAX, I prefer MS3D for newbies.

    The text contains excessive shouting

    Okay, but I need a step-by-step instructional tutorial, as I've seen all sorts of tutorials around claiming you need this that and the other thing while others say all that is unnecessary. I just need one clear, coherent tutorial on model hacking and the tools I need to do it.

    I got a tutorial that is called "Learn it by yourself without tutorials", It's a video tutorial that is 0 seconds long and the zip-file contains 0 avi files.

    I wanted to learn how to properly hack models, really, because so far the only thing I'm proficient in is using coding to hack skins on. I can't change models at all, which is why I wanted to learn. By the way Sklad, do I need to use 1.7.3, or can I simply use the new MS3D 1.7.10?

    1.7.4 or 1.7.8 are the best, try searching them on google. never use 1.7.9, I dont know about 1.7.10 though.

    You dont NEED to use 1.7.3, its not necessary.

    I think you should figure it out mainly your self and ask some small questions if you get stuck.
    That was the way I learned it.
    95% I learned my self by testing diffrent things and see what working and not you see.

    Dude shut up, I am interested in too and I am also willing to give points if it is coherent.

    Maybe I and Skladfin and Faleij(HTML Code Master) could do a nice tut if we get some points, but I dunno it would come so many model hacks so it was't going to be fun anymore maybe.

    I was working with milkshape and I have to ask: how do you create ms3d files to merge with the defaults? Do I simply rename the model files, or is there something else I have to do?

    Ha! I finally figured it out, and all it took was 7 hours of staring at my monitor, randomly slapping the keyboard, watching my computer crash, screaming, crying, sulking, and paying someone else to do it for me!

    I AM A GENIUS.

    Seriously though, thanks for the help =)
