I want to have new versions of stock ships in my Legacy game. I am ok with the ODFs and have managed to get a refit using the basename command so it uses all of the same textures etc.
However, I want to create new textures for the refits. I have used 3d modelling programs before but am at a loss at where to go - haven't found any tutorials.
How can I duplicate the textures and edit them to use on my new refit?
Any help appreciated
Are you able to open a .dds file with your image editing software?
Yes, thanks for the response but I actually worked it out yesterday. Got my first refits done with new textures, woohoo.
One questions, how can I edit how phasers and torpedoes appear - say make them a different color?
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

You've got to find their relevant texture files and edit them manually, or create new ones and make sure they correspond with the relevant sprite and odf files. You'll have to forgive me for not being more in-depth, I had to un-install the game due to the 1.2 patch not helping :S
Yeah, find the right texture file for your torpedo's and you can change their colors. Same with Pulse phasers and normal phasers.
