Post tutorial Report RSS [TUT] Exchange Portal 2 Reflection Gel Texture

The original Texture of the Portal 2 Reflection Gel is not really beautiful, so I show how to replace it with something nicer.

Exchange Portal 2 Reflection Gel Texture

I saw this method used in BEE2 (http://portal2backstock.com/bee2/) but I never found a guide how to replace the Texture of the Reflection Gel manually, that is why I have written this tutorial.

Follow these Steps:

  1. Download these File: paintblobs.zip
  2. Extract the Folder paintblobs from the downloaded file into [your Steam Folder]\steamapps\common\Portal 2\portal2\materials (or the materials folder of your mod etc.)
  3. Start Portal 2 and enjoy the new texture

If you want to use your own color then edit the blob_surface_light_grey.vmf in the materials/paintblobs folder with VTFEdit and save it under a new filename in the paintblobs folder. Then open the file blob_surface_stick.vmf in an Editor and modify $baseTexture to match your filename. With this method you can only modify the Color of the Gel itself and not how it appears on surfaces or on player contact.
