ok, well erm where do i start.
i started skinning about a year ago, then quit about a month after i started, but when JKII came out and i sa some peeps playing with the reborn acrobat model i was in awe, the darkness of the shades looked somewhat like flames so i though hell why not i'm alot more experienced in photoshop now, i guess i could give skinning a try again, so i started my skin again, i've got some screenies but it does need some more editing cause i'm not completely pleased, plus i'm making other variants of the skin like black and whit and blue and white, then afterwards teamcolors.
here are the screenies
personally i think the hood needs more work the flames suck on that IMO, that's the WIP
now i also had an idea to make new sabres with the skins, nothing much, just one to suit each skin, the orange one suits the blackflame skin perfectly and the blue one fits the bluewhite skin perfectly, i have to however make one for the blackwhite skin, plus i'm gonna edit them and add little lightning sparks to the sabres :dance: , but here's the Q i don't know how to implement the sabres in the game, i tried downloading sabres other people made to see how they did it, but all the sabres they made overwrite original ones :(, so anyone know how to add sabres without overwriting any of the old ones???
thanks in advance and if you wanna CnC the reborn skin go ahead, i would skin a custom model but i don't have one and i'm still too n00bish in MAX
I don't believe it is possible. Maybe try naming the file "sparkly_line.jpg" and see if it adds the saber in as 'sparkly' ;) (sprakly is just a name, hehe, use what you like). This is because all the color saber cores are called 'blue_line.jpg' 'red_line.jpg' 'yellow_line.jpg', etc. so maybe adding a different name will help.
If it doesn't work then I think you have no choice but to replace the existing ones.
Skin looks pretty cool btw! :D[/edit]
yup you have to overwrite original sabres, that's a bad choice from the DEVS IMO , oh well i guess i'll have to overwrite then :(
