Ahoy hoy! Oh it has been a while since I did this...err let's see- plenty of jumping through hoops to gets some useable files!
Pepakura can only use common image formats such as JPG/PNG/BMPs for the textures. To get the TF2 textures you need to install GCFScape and open the file in Program Files/Steam/SteamApps called "team fortress 2 materials.gcf". Here you can browse around for textures and such. Find the VTF files for what you want and extract them. Then use VTF Edit nemesis.thewavelength.net/inde… to convert them into a normal image format! Regular Pepakura only supports images up to 1024x1024 so you may have to downsize some. Hope that helps!
Hello there and thank you for building my model!
Don't worry, most of your message is ok to read!
Papercraft is not as widely known as origami, but there are many dedicated communities out there on the internet with free templates to download. I started with small models from old Zelda games, and over the years learned how to make papercrafts from modern high detail games. For your first model, the Pyro looks excellent! Very smooth and neat so well done indeed! DeviantArt is more for main 'artwork' pictures so you can only upload one picture at a time. It works great for single drawings, but less for multiple photos. If you would like to send me some more pictures, an email address which you can use is on my side blog here: hyrulepapercraft.blogspot.co.u…
I may consider the Engineer or Soldier in future, so there could be more TF2 crafts from me eventually.
