Magical Mercenary
I got a request for my poster services today including the Magical Mercenary (the allclass pony hat). When I found the model in the loader, it had the unmistakeable black mane that signifies a need for fixing before paint could be applied.

So using Pte Jack's method, I applied the usual steps from his Robo-hat videos.

This hat doesn't seem very easily paintable in SFM. Has anyone had any issues with this? If so, did you fix it?

Slightly humerous side note: I can't help but feel the difficulty associated with this one hat is Valve's way of showing "affection" for the Pony community xD

The colors on the main layer of the vtf ar no good for painting as they are now. Go to myguide on painting hats and follow the steps I did for thr robo-archimedes. you should be able to paint it after you follow the steps

That's actually the method I was referring to above as having tried (unless you did more than one video with robo-archimedes).

I've referenced the video several times as I have come across a lot of broken textures.

Thank you very much, Pte Jack. I really appreciate you taking the time to figure that out, and I'm even more grateful that you made a great guide to show us how to do it.

No probs.. Glad I could help. I was having a hard time keeping the horn from changing colour and it was easier to make the vid than to try an explain it... A picture is worth 1000 words and a video 100 times that I guess... lol
