what do you need for skinning?? also how do you make custom vehicles?? please help..(any other programs i should know about for a new modder) Thanks?
you need to have BF2 modtools. You need a program in what you can reskin/ skin the games. GIMP, photoshop etc
GIMP works the best thanks to its "invisible" texture and l33t gradients and stuff. and its needed to convert the .tga files into something useable
If you made a custom vehicle, you would have to be experienced in XSI. You need animations, textures, models, odf's, ETC. Ask a modeler to make a vehicle.
