Did you assign the model to a bone? If you didn't, the towel will naturally not move as nothing is telling it to.

well do "link" is the same as "assign"? cuz i did link the bone with the towel
but if not how do i do?

Open your .smd with Notepad ++ and go to Line 3. It should say something along the lines of

0 "bone name" -1

If you want it to move with the character, you need to rig to more bones. TF2 doesn't simulate cloth physics.

Just to clarify, do you mean that when you, say, walk away, the towel doesn't move, or do you mean that the model clips through the towel?
Rakesh Cristoval 3 Sep 26, 2012 @ 2:17pm 
yeah the model clips through the towel

And thanks pogo ill try the "rig"

okk i tried to skin the bone to the model but when i move the bone...the towel dont move smoothly, its only stretch and it look really bad

I want that when the character move to the left, the towel go the other side because of the winds, like a real towel! and also that the towel colide to the character so that it dont glips trough it!

TF2 doesn't have cloth physics. Try to make do with character animations and jigglebones
