    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, i couldnt figure it out because it has to do with models and skins... :?

    Um, first off, i dont know if i need something like a special program to make my own skin for my own models, or can i just make the in photoshop?

    Secon, i need a full tutorial for UVW in GMax, if there is one.

    And last, how do i save the skin so it goes on the model and stays on, like other custom models?

    You can edit your uv in any art program, however first you have to make it, and this can be a difficult process.

    I'll try to see if I can find a tutorial for gmax but your probably better off looking for yourself

    To save your skin on your unit, you have to create a path for it. Obviously I don't know a lot about the modeling part of uv wraps...probably better off asking in the modeling, but Sansui might help you.

    You need a program which does skins for a model (I think)
