    Oh no, no worries. I'm not asking you to modify HIS skin. I'm just giving you an idea of where I'm drawing the concept from.

    What I am asking is if you could turn the berserker skin into a dragon troll. I dunno though, I'm attempting it with less than favorable results (I'm doing a lot of CnP on it). It's easy giving units armor, but trying to make a troll's skin look like a dragons aint so easy.

    In sum: I'm not asking you to modify THAT. I think my attachment didn't attach so let me try again. The attachment in THIS one should be the right attachment.

    Also attached is my poor attempt at my own request. Just to give you an idea of what DOESN'T work. (looks like the Thing)

    No offence, but all of these textures are just recolours, dodge mess ups, 1 pixel freehands, and Gradient Filters.

    But I do think it's awfully nice of you to help all these people.

    awesome thx dude. Looks much cleaner than mine, and not trying to be picky but, could u make the red part on the shoudlers more visible, because on the model, it kinda fades in. And also, if you could remove outlines on the shoulderpads, that'd be great. I think i should be able to edit the other little things. Also a battle worn appearance would be cool too though not really needed, and thanks again.

    lol do you even know what a skin is? Do you really think if jaijai draws you a tuskar chief on top of a polar bear then it'll magically work ingame? weird

    Oh hey Jaijai, I can toss ya some techniques to increase your productivity on skinning.

    First, you'll need:
    Magos Model Editor (Or some other modeler)
    A file converter
    Notepad

    If you extract the model you're skinning, convert it to .mdl, move it to the folder where the skin is, open it in notepad and change the Texture (Use Ctrl+F, The first heading will be Texture, below that are "file paths" for the textures. Change it from it's "Units\Textures\Orc\Human\etc.bp" to the TheSkinName.bmp/tga then you can view how it looks on the model in magos.

    This can help you a TON when you're skinning! You'll have a real view of your progress.

    Everyone who has not recently been pointed out to be poor at reading people's posts, please step forward. Woah woah woah, not so fast Discipline.

    To naija78: You don't need a skin for that. If you geomerged the two, just place the tuskar texture path and polar bear texture path into the model. Sorry, I've never done or attempted it before btw. This is just a general explanation of what you need to do.

    Take a stroll on over to the model section and ask them how you'd attach the ingame textures to the polar bear and then to the tuskarr. Or better yet find a tutorial. I recommend this way because creating a texture from scratch like that would involve a 256x512 texture and you'd STILL have to find a way to wrap it onto your model, and if you use ingame textures the file size will be a LOT smaller.

    Thanks for the tips Titan, the truth is i already knew that and have been using those techniques before, however the problem is that the computer on which i have installed those files is... dead and my dad will not allow me to install new programs on his computer. But thanks anyway xD

    NOTE: The Crypt Lord is almost done
    NOTE: Naija I cant do what you ask i suggest u talk to Titanhex he seems to know more about your request than i do.

    Yeah umm.... no need for the attitude. FYI I'd seen a thread he post not that much earlier then this requesting that someone make the model for him... with little in the way of progress.

    So for him to come here not long after requesting a skin for a model he 'made', I highly doubted that he had any model at all. Besides that, if he was clued in a little about modelling he'd know that he would have to supply the model or an image of the uv map to get something done that could be correctly applied. On top of that the last I read of his thread people were talking about a geoset merge, which means if someone actually did make it then he would already have the skins and need to explain what he wanted edited.... but he's not doing that, hes just asking for a tuskar on a polar bear.

    This lead me to believe he doesn't really know what he's talking about and is just requesting jaijai does something in hope that it will end up in his map.

    The post was directed at him, not you, and if I was even half right with my deduction then he would of either re-post with what he needed, found out more about modelling so he understands where I'm coming from or realise he's out of his depths and walk away from it.

    There's no need to come barging in here with wit, you shouldn't really be posting in the requests section unless you either make requested resources or are in need of them. These kind of communities are about working together and helping each other learn and create... you shouldn't really start off by trying to put someone down or in place.... but let's leave it there, it's all good.

    On an actually related note, that marine looks so much better (meaner) then the standard. It looks awesome from that view, I'd love to see an ingame shot.
