hey folks :) i have a serious problem....
i just "finnished" my new hilt model (staff) but i have a problem....
i am using milkshape and i dont know how to make the tags/blade 1 and 2 (triangles) for the lightsaber you know the place the light comes from.....
can anyone help me :(
and how can i reskin a existing skin from the game without replacing the old one
:) hope there is someone who wanna help me :)
Wiseman out !
OK, for the reskin, just change the image files, NOTHING ELSE. Not that complicated. I'm a mapper and I know this.
no i cant.... i dont want it to replace the old one so i cant just change that
Oops. My bad. And yours too. READ TUTORIALS!!!! They explain all.
I've downloaded tutorials, but on the tutorials the triangles (tags) just magically appear and then the tutorial just tells you where to place them, I've never found one that tells me how to create such a triangle. It is really frustrating for newbies to be told in anger (or arrogance) every single time to search for tutorials, without even the slightest orientation, since basically we don't even know which tutorials to get first, or where; since the famous "Stickys" with tutorials only have links, not even titles saying where do they lead, and this can be very time ($!) consuming with a crappy (state-of-the-art-crappy) Internet conection. I've received great help from this forums, but more collaboration would be appreciated, after all it is about enlarging the so-called community so that we can all get better mods to expand the so-short playability life span of this game. So if it's really that insultingly easy to you (anyone) to answer a moronic question just explain it shortly of make a quicky-sticky (the hell do I know), don't be lazy or selfish when explaining, and specially when not explaining. Of course that we all have to do our part, we newbies need to get a lot of reading done first, some of us even come with some experience from other games and are just trying to get the grasp of this engine. So to the newbies, search first, mess with the software a bit and then , when all doors seam closed, post. And someboty, please, help.
yeh it really is (!#"#¤"#¤) and it just wont work... i finaly found a guy who wanted to help me so for every one who havent found help making hilts here is a guide... but i can tell :) i havent made it work yet hehe...
i made a post in the skinning forum to and this guy responded so thx to you m8 :)
From lil killa :
Make a triangle and name it tag_blade1
For something a bit more spacific on the placement of the triangle go here:
I know it's mostly for gmax but the pricipals are the same. If you don't know how to make a triangle then listen
Make three verts (click th vertex button on the left) and then select face form the menu on the left and select each of the three verts in a counterclockwise direction.
