Could someone point me in the right direction to make a MP Skin? (technically just out of the stock stuff)

I've opened up the PK3's with Pakscape, and it all looks quite, quite bewildering.

Help would be appreciated.

The easiest way to make a "new" skin is to just re-draw the current skin textures. You can do this in just about any graphics program, from Photoshop all the way down to MS Paint. In the PK3 file, go to Models --> Players2, and then click on the folder of the model you want to edit. (The Models --> Players folder is for SP skins). Then just edit the .jpg files to your liking. It may be difficult at first, because you don't exactly know what part of the body you're editing, such as with heads, for example, you could be touching up an eyebrow or adding sideburns. Just experiment with different colors in different areas and then go into the game to see what colors are where. Just always be sure to save backup copies of the files. To view your creations, just create a new PK3 file with the same directory structure as the original and place your files into it. Then save that PK3 into your BaseEF folder.

Hope this helps, Derrick Goodfriend
