So I edited the env_metal.txt to say "primary=waterglass", renamed it to waterglass.texture.txt, and everything works!

(finally!!)
Congratulations!

This is what I was trying to 'splain all along.

This is something that will be very common with lots of assets. I suggest saving these files in a folder called parts. Put in other textures you'll come across too such as black.tga along with the black.texture.txt file that matches. If I come across a missing texture that I have, I dig through my folder, like looking in a scrap box, for the textures and bits I need. This has saved me a ton of time when repairing these older assets.
