you know what a 3d model is right lol a skin is like giving a new look or an extra look to an existing 3d model:rock: :rock: :frog: :frog: :mepimp: :mepimp: :mepimp: :beer: :assimilate:
so let me see if I got this. A skin is for an existing model in the game for a new look and stuff, whick in a sense replaces an existing character, and a model is a new character in itself then. Am i right?
a skin is just a a modefcatione of an excisting charter is Model is something that be maid uo witth out any reskinning
So then after I install the models of Darth Maul and Darth Vader, I'll have 2 more selectable characters then.
yes but skins are new playable characters as well, here's the easy explanation
lets assume you are a game model, and you wear casual short and a T-shirt, that t-shirt and the shorts would be the skin, now when someone gives you a suit to wear he would have given you a different skin, but when he wanted to for example make your mom for the game he'd have to make a model cause he can't change your skin to make you reflect your mom, so he makes a new model and gives that a skin resembling your mom.
so in general,
- a skin is purely image editing -> photoshop - a model is a 3d object -> 3ds max, milkshape, maya, lightwave
and if that doesn't do it for you i'll say it this way, a model is a piece of clay, it's grey or any other color, a skin is the thing we wrap around the model to make it look like something eg instead of a generic grey reborn model, various skins were made to make it look human and give it different outfits
:rock: :rock: :rock: hes right!!!:mepimp: :assimilate: :furious: :borg: :smack: :spank:
So they are pretty much the same, but a model is just some more stuff with it.
no they're not the same, a skin is a flat painted thing, a model is a 3d object
compared to real life, a model is a round piece of clay and a skin is a flat piece of paper
when downloading keep in mind a skin will considerably smaller in size then a model
