Default Custom Ammo and Weapon Icons

I tried replacing the C4 icon with the serious bomb icon from SSHD but it doesn't seem to work. Can someone explain to me how to properly replace weapon/ammo icons in SS3? Thanks.

You should try that chainsaw hammer on the Workshop, that replaced the Sledgehammer icon, you could check out how they did it.

Here's how it works:

You open SED3 (SSHD) click in "Create Texture" and there, you go to Content>SeriousSamHD>Textures>Interface>AmmoIcons and there you right click in the Serious_Bombs.tex and choose "EXPORT".

Seeing that you want to replace the C4's icon with the SB's icon you save the texture as StickyBombs, and just for the sake of doing, make a copy of that exported file and save it with another name that goes: "StickyBombs_mask"

Then, you must move your .tga' to the next directory: Content/SeriousSam3/Textures/Interface/AmmoIcons (if those folders don't exist, create them) you must drop your .tgas in the last folder of this line, then, in SED3.5 (SS3) you click in "Create Texture", you go to Content/SeriousSam3/Textures/Interface/AmmoIcons and if everything went correctly you should see your .tga in this folder, you just click in them and the editor will ask if you want to create that texture, select yes, now you will have 2 .tex files (delete the .tga files) and just to see if it works go to the game or do a test in the editor.

Hope this helps, if you need any help feel free to ask

Hmmm.... weird, all I can see is a flattered C4 icon instead of a Serious Bomb, the same happened with SSHD, can't add custom icons to the HUD bar, will be researching this now.

IS THIS AN EDIT, I DON'T THINK SO

Hmmm.... well found something in the GlobalAtlas.rsc, there lays all the HUD files, including the C4's one, looks like it can be editable, all you need to do is:

Move the .tex files somewhere else (recomendably in Content>SeriousSam3>Textures>Interface), now open the GlobalAtlas.rsc (Located in Content/SeriousSam3/Textures) and look for the C4 text files, here's how they should be changed:

Here's the original text: "Content/SeriousSam3/Textures/Interface/WeaponIcons/Sticky_bomb.tex"

If you do what I mentioned above the new text should go like this:

"Content/SeriousSam3/Textures/Interface/Sticky_bomb.tex"

Just tested it and it works

ANOTHER EDIT :OHGODWHY:

Looks like only way to ADD/MODIFY icons to the HUD (Only changing them, color is still editable in HudParams.rsc) now is to modify that GlobalAtlas.rsc file. hope all of this info helps
