Sorry, I'm really stupid and bad at these things, but where can I find / edit the viewmodel settings? For example if I want to have my RL not to have a viewmodel? It says: "-viewmodel is now defined in _items_main.txt", but I can't find that anywhere.

what degu said so for VTF crosshairs it's "mat_reloadmaterial thumbnails"
You can use this to switch the VTF files, but you can't use this with the weapon txt files. If you modify the txt files you'll have to restart TF2 afaik

Anyone else having a problem with the cross hairs only showing on certain weapons
It works on the scatter gun and sniper and most other weapons but I cant get a custom one to appear on the rocket launcher

if you're using custom explosions you need to edit those files

tl;dr remove your smaller explosion script in custom, add them to the txt files in your crosshair folder
cfg.tf can do this automatically if you make a crosshair pack there

komorebiThis makes this idea for transparent viewmodels completely possible and viable for every weapon in the game. You would simply create a bigger .vtf with a transparent picture of the weapon in addition to any weapon-specific crosshair. It would be a fair bit of work to create for every weapon but .vtfs already exist for many stock weapons (in aforementioned thread).

sry for bumping a 3 yr old thread but uhh its actually totally possible and i made it

that looks nice, i like the wireframe look. I made a ghetto version a while back where i just took a ss of the min model and made it transparent. https://i.imgur.com/zcRhJ9H.png

then i got bored and made an LG for the SMG / pistol

I'm Really, really sorry for necroing this topic.

But I'm trying to set custom sizes for the crosshairs
What variables do I have to add, or change in the weapon files?
Thanks in advance for helping

Just use the cl_crosshair_scale command in your various class configs to adjust every crosshair to its desired size

It works partially.
if I use stock shotgun the pellet pattern takes some size, inside a circle
but,
If I equip the panic attack, the pattern is a rectangle, smaller in height, but wider
Basically, I want to change hitscans weapons crosshair sizes, in a way that matches the bullet pattern inside of it
edit: mispelling and concluding the idea

Your best bet is to upscale and downscale the crosshairs manually if you want different ratios. Choose a good cl_crosshair_scale then make some differently sized versions of whatever crosshair you want. This thread shows how to edit the vtf files and even make your own crosshairs.

Should take a ton of trial and error but if you get that working definitely share. Sounds like a cool concept
