I want to take the head of one model and put it on the body of another. I figure there's a tutorial for it, but there's like a million of them and the ones I've read through didn't make sense (so I very well could have found it already, just not realized it =/) Any help? Sorry if asking this kind of thing is frowned upon.
Import both models into XSI and delete what you don't want, envelope the mesh to the skeleton, set up the hierarchy, make the .skin file, export to .xsi, compile to .glm with assimilate and put it all in a pk3 file.
Thank fuck this thread is in JK3 modding, was worried for a moment.
^--OMFG MGS RISING!!!! sorry 1 A.M. and i had to say it when i saw it.
Hm...lemme just poke around redsaurus' collection of magic..
He has been working on a mod to swap model parts at run-time (Requires no file modifications - just a plugin replacement) Unreleased, unfinished. It'll be released when it's done etc. Just saying, this will be an opportunity in the future (And he's ok with giving the code out to those wanting to incorporate it into their mods/plugins)
woow, erm can some one tell me how can i get one of this i want to try some own stuff and re-skines so just want to see how they will look like, cause my 3Ds Max on my laptop crashed (don't know why when i open one model ex. Kyle and i want to put on it the head of stormtrooper or something, the move tool don't wanna move it :( it just stay on a gray lines and i can move it only back and forward.) and on my PC i have XSI, but yet i don't know how to use it and how to open and work with models from JKA in it maybe 'cuz i am stupid and i don't have free time (doh)
Your Max problem just sounds like you don't know what your doing and like already stated, the mod will be out when it's done.
nope i know what i am doing. I oped one model for example : Stormtrooper, i select his head (only) and i hit my W button (thi is the Move tool right?) and I want to move the head of the Stormtrooper : Left, down, right, and againd little down. But the only think that is change is that when i am "moving" the head it don't wanna go down i can only move it around in circle but nothing else. did u get it now minilogoguy18?
I know exactly what's wrong but since you know what your doing I'll let you fix it.
well 10x alot, but u are not helping me, I don't know how to fix this thing in the 3Ds
