I've been messing with vtf crosshairs for awhile now and ive finally finished this crosshair pack includes 11 different crosshairs that switch seamlessly depending on what weapon you have out.

HOW 2 MAKE UR OWN CROSSHAIR http://www.teamfortress.tv/37767/how-to-make-vtf-crosshairs

You must have your crosshair set to cl_crosshair_file "" for it to work. (type cl_crosshair_file "" in console)
cl_crosshair_file "seeker" WILL NOT WORK

How to install:
Download the crosshairs.zip
Drag the custom_stuff into your custom folder

How to change the crosshairs
Go to the scripts folder at tf/custom/custom_stuff/scripts
find the tf_weapon file for the weapon you want to change
scroll down to the crosshair section:

"crosshair"
{
"file" "vgui/replay/thumbnails/seeker"
"x" "0"
"y" "0"

"height" "64"
}

chnage the part highlighted in bold with the crosshair you want, for example, change seeker to bigcross.

This is awesome, if you could add the crossdot crosshair (http://drok-radnik.com/junk/xhair_compared.png) I'd definitely use this.

Custom > whateveryoucalledthis > [scripts and materials folder here]

weapon txt files go in scripts. you edit these to change the crosshair for each weapon. crosshair section can be found near the bottom of txt file

VMT and VTF files go in materials > vgui > replay > thumbnails. the VTF is the image, the VMT tells the game where to find the VTF and how the VTF behaves (you can use VMTs to make rotating crosshairs and stuff for example but it's useless)

i added a bunch of crosshairs to a mod i found on gamebanana, you basically just drop the vpk file and the crosshair folder in custom and you can scroll through the crosshairs on the crosshairs options menu

do you use the no explosion smoke script? Those use the same txt files so make sure you combine the 2 together in 1 file. Having 2 seperate files will make 1 not work

Already worked for you but I guess I'll make a short guide for people who want to do it in the future.

http://www.teamfortress.tv/30866/guide-weapon-specific-custom-crosshairs (assuming you already understand the things from this thread)

I'll be going over my rocket launcher file. You'll also have to do this for your stickybomb launcher, grenade launcher, direct hit, airstrike, etc. It's just pasting the section from one file into the other file. Nothing special.

Open the relevant txt files. Somewhere at the start you will see //buckets with something like this:

Show Content
"ExplosionEffect" "electrocuted_red_flash"
"ExplosionPlayerEffect" "electrocuted_blue_flash"
"ExplosionWaterEffect" "electrocuted_red_flash"
"ExplosionSound" "BaseExplosionEffect.Sound"

This already uses smaller explosions. I prefer the flash explosions but I think most people use a particle related to sappers. The default values look like this:

Show Content
"ExplosionEffect" "ExplosionCore_wall"
"ExplosionPlayerEffect" "ExplosionCore_MidAir"
"ExplosionWaterEffect" "ExplosionCore_MidAir_underwater"

"ExplosionSound" "BaseExplosionEffect.Sound""

At the bottom of the txt file you will find the Crosshairs section. Default:

Show Content
"crosshair"
{
"file" "sprites/crosshairs"
"x" "32"
"y" "32"
"width" "32"
"height" "32"
}

Put your VTF and VMT of choice in vgui/replay/thumbnails. I named mine crosshair1.vtf and crosshair1.vmt for slot1 weapons. I then put this in the crosshair section:

Show Content
"crosshair"
{
"file" "vgui/replay/thumbnails/crosshair1"
"x" "0"
"y" "0"
"width" "64"
"height" "64"
}

I play on a low resolution so when i make the crosshairs smaller into the size i want to them to be, they pixelate. Any way I could deal with that?
