Well, I whipped up this skin in tribute for Renegade. I figured the guy went through so much and kept a good sense of humor, so he deserved his own skin. Here ya go bud! ;)

Unfortunately, I had no way to host it, so its on an ftp run off of my comp. Hopeful I'll find a way to get a permanent host soon, so grab it while it's hot!

You'll need to login with an ftp program like this: http://download.com.com/3000-2160-1572132.html?tag=lst-0-1

Enter this information as the server and then click "Connect" and download RenegadeRetardSkin.zip

Could people connecting please make sure you don't connect using Passive, there should be an option to change PASV to PORT

I'll comment when I get it.

Ok, well DaBeatard was nice enough to host this masterpiece on his webspace: http://www.dabeatard.com/files/RenegadeRetardSkin.zip Thanks man! Don't worry Ren, I'll leave my FTP up for another 12 hours so you can d/l it. ;) :D

Okay, I've got it, but....

I must be missing something, because it looks like the normal skin.

Anyhow, I'll be back later. I got to go take my kiddo to find Nemo. ;)

Thanks again for the gift pal!

Yeah, the skin has minor changes to it. Check the head (a crosshair to help the Rev), and the belt items. I know that they're kinda hard to read, but he now has "Wup Ass" on one of the boxes and a med kit on the other. I tried to make a giant smily face on the chest armor, but it looked really crappy so I got rid of it.

@Scum, did you just click on the dl link? I just tested it again and it worked fine.

ROFL!!! I see the changes now. I was rushing earlier to make it to the movies on time.

Thanks Thrawn (and Hunter and Beat for helping out). I feel so loved. *sob*

I'll try it out tonight. Maybe Webby can load it to the server for me (still necessary, right?)

Thrawn70
14th Jun 2003, 11:31 PM
We can see it as long as the client has it. If Webby put it on the server, it might lose it's individuality. Glad you like it! ;)

I've got the skin completed, but just like last time, I have no place to host it. The 7MB file shouldn't put too much strain on your server if you agree to help this poor slob.

15th Jan 2004, 08:56 PM
Problem solved! Mad props to DaBeatard for hosting this masterpiece on his server!

And yes, the Blue team skin does really say "Not Red" on the chestplate thanks in part to some not-so-careful planning on my part. Enjoy! :lol:

I'll be wearing this to the FragBU tomorrow, because I have a feeling that the man of honor won't be able to receive it in time. Feel free to wear it as well, or at least install it so you don't have to look at dear Mr. Gorge. ;)

BUMP

Any modelers out there want a project?

This skin was created for me by a friend for UT2003. It was a great skin, and I used it all the time "back in the day."

I'm wanting a new skin now. I've considered doing it myself, but I just can't get the hang of skinning.

Here's what I'd love to see:

-Use this previous model as a starting reference
-Keep the Brock model, but make him bald (I've recently started shaving my head)
-Tan the skin just a tad
-Give him a gotee (style similar to Torch)
-Make the gotee and eyebrowns medium brown
-An added touch, though not necessary, would be some sunglasses that are a light color like amber or something, that you can still see the eyes through.
-Keep "REN" on the shoulder
-Incorportate "Retard Inc." somewhere
-Beyond that, I'm game for any creativity
-Do NOT put a clan tag on at this time. I've recently parted ways with my clan.

I don't know if these things are possible, but I thought I'd throw them out there just in case.

Again, I just wanted to ask in case someone was interested in a challenge. :D

Are you deleting it now?

DaBeatard
3rd Jun 2005, 09:37 AM
No. I clicked on the link in Thrawn's post and the file was still there. Keeping it there is no problem, but I'll remove it if you like.

Renegade Retard
3rd Jun 2005, 09:58 AM
If you could leave it, I'd appreciate it. If no one takes up my request, then I'll download this one (again) and see if I can do something with it.

Thrawn created a 2k4 skin with team colors, iirc.

I would assume so, but I'd have to check when I get home.

I'd still like something new though, something a little more unique.

I guess I'm just going to have to learn how to do it on my own.

han has a upaint tutorial in his sig. but it doesn't make any sound.

I can't think of anything that is easier to mod in UT2k4 than a skin, other than maybe a subtracted cube in UEd.

here's a basic tutorial.

To make some a goofy skin:

The play disk has "UPaint" on it, it's in the "extras" folder, install that first.

Once UPaint is installed, go to: File > Open > Program Files > Right Hemisphere > UPaint > Characters (they will be .upp extensions)

Pick one and save it as 'goofy_skin' or something similar...make sure you do this, if you modify an existing skin and export it as the same name you'll have to reinstall

UPaint is similar to MSPaint, but a little more cumbersome.....you'll see what I mean. However it does have the model window so you can see what you're doing to your character.

Once you're done messing around with it, ie: spraying it up with lines and such.......

File > Export Character to Unreal (this will take a minute or two cause it has to create a bunch of files...)

Fire up 2k4 and your skin should be in the character browser....

Fun eh?

Renegade Retard
3rd Jun 2005, 02:01 PM
Can I make adjustments other than changing colors, etc in UPaint? For instance, if I wanted to add a dunce hat on top of his head, can I do that through UPaint, or do I need another program for that?

Hanover_Fist
3rd Jun 2005, 02:01 PM
dunce caps and stuff like that are meshes that have to be added.

That is much more involved.

If you're that serious about it, I can link you and help you with some things.

I'll see if I can't whip something up for ya Ren.

Oh and your posts look rather depressing without a siggy pic. :)

Sweetness! That's EXACTLY what I was looking to get, but I wasn't going to bug anyone with that too.

(I dropped the other sig since I'm no longer in tWe)

Edit - now if I can just get it to work

Edit 2 - :lol: I couldn't figure out why I couldn't see it, until I realized I had sigs turned off. :lol:

If you're interested in modeling, I'd use this: http://www.wings3d.com/, completely free and fairly easy to use. Plus there are forums that have tons of tutorials.

If you want I'll convert a model (of your choice) for you so you can open it in wings and modify it. In fact, I've been playing with a 2k4 model in wings and I'll e-mail it to you if you want. ;)

Another thing, in Polycounts "pimping and previews" forums a lot of the modelers there release what they call an "SDK". That's a model that's usually done and is unwrapped (made a skin template) and they are usually in a format that you can import into Wings and have a lookee at.

I'd link you to all kinds of cool stuff, but I'm at work and most everything cool is blocked. :rolleyes:

I don't necessarily want to do anything drastic. I was using the dunce cap as an example.

I noticed that Thrawn had added the med pack on the first model. I didn't know if he did it in UPaint or not.

The reason I asked, if I'm going to added a gotee or something, I don't want it to just look like a skin pigmentation. I want the facial hair to have some form of it's own. Also, If I want the Brock model to be bald, then I'd have to remove some of the model.

BooGiTyBoY
3rd Jun 2005, 02:38 PM
Removing parts of the model can easily be done in UED with masking. (You will also need a little knowledge of making alpha channels in an image editing program such as Photoshop or painshop pro)
In fact Teh_Rex just posted a tutorial on just how to do this in the skincity forums here:

I've converted Brock to a wings file. ;)

d/l Wings and install it, I'll e-mail Brock to you (what's your addy?) , you mod it the way you want and we'll try figure this out together.

ps. I put a hat on him, I made it a little too high up so you're going to have to learn how to move the hat down. :P
