    Careful, Discipline. You're heading into a storm cloud typically called a flame war. Instead of making up excuses for what you did, learn to simply apologize and be accountable for your actions.

    Discipline, I shouldn't have came at you with the sharp wit I used and cut you down like that. Rather, I should have offered you the same courtesy that I gave naija. For that I'm sorry.

    None-the-less, it's rather ironic that you used a big detailed post to defend yourself when that effort would have been better spent explaining to naija why what he was doing wouldn't work, and that he was requesting unnecessary effort out of people. In fact, while trying to defend yourself in your post you explained why what he was doing wasn't going to work.

    An additional note: When you send a message in a public post instead of a private post, it's also directed to the entire community as that is your audience, and you are well aware that they will read it. It's simply the laws of written communication.

    I should also offer an apology to Jaijai, as this is his thread and I am perpetuating a flame war inside it. My apologies jaijai.

    By offering naija a detailed explanation of why what he's doing won't work, you are speeding up his progress as a map maker, and getting him to where he needs to be faster. Offer him your advice should he need more, but only give him that advice upon request when you want to and have the time, to prevent burn out. That's the best way to go about helping people who are young and clueless to what they're doing.

    I know this will end when both parties can admit they're wrong and move on. I've admitted I was wrong on two counts, and am stepping down. If you make a move to continue this discussion without an apology or attempt to defend yourself against me, I will move it to PMs for the courtesy of all those who read this thread and show you that I'm not nearly as nice as I seem.
    ---

    On a more productive and on topic note, the path you're looking for for the Demon Hunter skin itself is "Textures\HeroDemonHunter.blp" When you create the model you want for this, or when it is created, you'll want to change the texture path simply to the name of the .blp Jaijai has provided for you.

    My suggestion is go back to the post I provided for jaijai about renaming the model's skin path and viewing it, and try it yourself to see your skin in action.

    For your benefit though I'll give you a screenshot of your skin magos.

    As you can see the wrap on DH is retarded. The front is copied to the back. Anyone will tell you that the DH is a pain in the ass to deal with when skinning. However if you know much about modeling you can probably find a way around that.

    How is my skin going? I'm actually curious as to what is the most difficult request you've recieved.

    Yeah, you gotta be careful with those Demon Hunter skins. As you can see if you load Magos and open the Demon Hunter skin, then put it in stand channel, the front part is the back part as well. So what you put on his chest and abs will be on his back. This can make skinning the demon harder, and you should work with your skinner (Jaijai) on working around this.

    Also, if you want the ears removed you'll have to do that through modeling. If you Alpha out the ears you'll have holes in his head. Same goes for a lot of the texture. If you have a good model maker, you can warn him you'll want a UV path set, then ask Jaijai to make the skin 512x256 (This will increase the file size though) and have the modified back and any extra skin pieces you want added in the new 256x256 space. All Jaijai would have to do is copy the front to the 256x256 place and modify it.

    And yeah, that warpig suit is pretty badass. GJ on that. If it's within the HIveworkshop submitting standards and icecreampirate gives you the okay, you should post it in the skins section.

    So far I think it'll work. It's a tough request to change the skin of something to look like something else. You seem to have the general criss cross of scales idea in some form.

    I'll handle the loincloth, sash, arm and leg bracers as far as texturing goes. What I need now is the rest of the skin filled in, the nose to look something like a dragon's beak, and flames or something in the hair instead of gold embroidery. As well any other touch ups you need to do, go ahead with.

    The alpha on the weapons failed for the DH. They're now white weapons. Also, the shirt looks very flat and monochrome. Perhaps add some texture variations. The eyes scooted to the side of his head instead of in the center. He has rabbit like yes now.
    Also the wrap between his head hair and his pony tail is flesh colored. You may want to start over from scratch on that DH skin.

    Sorry That no requests have been done recently. It is due to the fact I am currently moving and unable to create stuff, also because of my numerous maps that are due to soon be released I am not sure when I will be able to get onto these requests however I am going to make a few attempts at that gnoll before I move sorry for inconvenience caused. If there is another texture editor that would like to continue my work please do as i would like to keep this thread alive.
