Hey peeps, I've had a go at skinning. Go easy on me - I've never skinned before, I've only just figured out how to load new brushes, hehe.

Anyway, here it is. I used a CS 1.6 skinning tutorial. Subject: M1911 Colt clip:

I'm really happy how it's turned out so far. It's not even 50% finished yet.

I've spent about 30 minutes on it by the way, best part is adding scratches. Really brings it to life.

:eek:

Looking very very good! Is that for the FH model? If it is, you know who to contact if you want any skins "published"... ;)

Y'know Cheese, I have no idea myself what it's for. I just made it from a CS 1.6 skinning tutorial.

I'd have no idea how to start actually building up the skin completely, but I guess I can find something on the internet.

I just wanted to get some feedback, skinning's a tough thing to do - after seeing what people like Rad come out with. I'm really happy with that though, even if it is just a first go.

It looks great but if you done it in new file it's useless. What you realy need to do is to unpack Textures.rfa from Battlefield1942/Mods/FH/Archives and edit these UV maps with skins. They may seem to be a little fixed in the beginning but you'll get used to them.

Haha, Allen, this is just a little mess about on Photoshop. I'm not actually going to reskin a weapon. That'd be diving in too quickly.

Thanks for the heads up though.

yeah, I understand but it's a pitty that such beatiful skin might go to waste as you won't be able to fit it into the real skin. Also I'm affraid that there is no way you will reach such high quality in skins for bf42, we would need new UV maps for models.

I dont get you.

Anyway forget about it, I'm just messing about. Maybe when I get serious about skinning I'll find out more about it.
