This is a simple tool designed to create and customize sprites. This tool requires WIREMOD.

Check out the expression2 extension for creating sprites as well:

How to use it:
1. Select the tool Wire Sprites located on the Tab Wire on the 'Q' menu.
2. Customize as you see fit.
3. Spawn.

"On" = Toggles the state of the sprite (On/Off)
"RGB [VECTOR]" = Sets the color of the sprite by a color vector.
"Alpha" = Sets the Alpha of the sprite.
"Scale" = Sets the Scale of the sprite.

You can update the texture, color, alpha, scale, framerate and rendermode just by clicking on the spawned sprite with new selected values.

Custom Sprites:
If you installed a new sprite, open up the console and type the following command:
wire_nm_sprites_spr_texture path_to_your_new_sprite.vmt

Sprites are installed on the "../materials/sprites" folder.

Custom Model:
If you want to use a different model, open up the console and type the following command:
wire_nm_sprites_model path_to_model.mdl

You can copy a model path by right-clicking on the model on the spawn menu.

Sprites from another games:
You can use this tool to browse for more sprites: Material Browser

Hope you enjoy !

@SANDERS If you mean the model that the sprites appear on, you can change the 3d model like any another Wiremod Tool, type the following on the console:

wire_nm_sprites_model path_to_model.mdl

Example: "wire_nm_sprites_model models/props_combine/breenglobe.mdl"
