Okay, someone's probably going to shoot me over this, but... I can't find the basic tutorials for coding skins/models into a game. My situation is that I don't like some of EA's skins that are used in the RJ mod's Arnor faction, particularly for Arveleg. Is it possible to take a skin from another mod that uses the same model (i.e. an Isildur skin from another mod) and replace the fecal-quality E.A. skin with it? I don't want to touch the powers - just the skin. I'd appreciate a link to the tutorials (which I searched on T3A for and couldn't find) and any tips. And just so nobody gets antsy about ethics, this is a completely personal project and will never be uploaded or transferred to another computer.

 

Oh, and hi, by the way. It's been a while.

Hello sir. If by skin, you mean you wish to change the appearance of your character in game it us under the 'draw' module.

It is generally at the top of the object.

 

This is where it starts for aragorn.

".............."

Draw = W3DScriptedModelDraw ModuleTag_DRAW //this is the module name

OkToChangeModelColor = Yes StaticModelLODMode = yes ;

DefaultModelConditionState Model = GUAragorn_SKN  //This is the actual model that is being used for aragorn

End  

 

ModelConditionState = WEAPONSET_HERO_MODE USER_3  //this section is used for when he activates his ability so he can glow ParticleSysBone = BAT_RIBS BladeMaster FollowBone:Yes

ParticleSysBone = BAT_HEAD AragornElendill FollowBone:Yes

End

"................."

 

I hope that answered your question. If not, send me a message, and I will send a list of detailed instruction with examples of the code necessary.

That probably answers part of my question. The thing problem that I'm having is that I really have no idea how to pull a skin from one mod (I.E. get the .dds file out of the .big file) and then put it into different .big file. To clarify, I don't want to do anything to the powers, stats, anims, etc. I just want to change the skin. I have the two mods downloaded, and want to make a (hopefully) simple change.
