    Who here knows how/wants to make a skin for me

    I found this really cool model(Roka)a bit down posted by Supermoose), but unfortunately it doesn't have team skins. And I was wondering if someone would want to make something simple, with team colors, for it.

    Thrawn needs to do some searching on the internet so he can make team skins for the renegade retard skin and also make new models too. You go Thrawn! :D

    To make skins for 'Custom' models the model maker has to provide a separate skin file for you to access. It's not in the skin files where you can modify it like your standard skins. iirc.

    Easy.

    To make some goofy nOOber skins:

    Disk 2 (I think) Edit: disk3 has "UPaint" on it, install that first.

    Patch "UPaint" with this:
    http://www.beyondunreal.com/dl.php/official/ut2003/upaint-patch-1.0.2.exe

    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 'mahnooberskin' or something similar...

    UPaint is very similar to MSPaint, but a little more cumbersome.....you'll see what I mean.

    Once you're done nOObering it up with spray paint....

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

    Fire up 2k3 and your nOObie skin will be in the character browser....

    Edit: I fished around for some racecar textures but I couldn't find any good ones :( , I used the kevlar from a car skinning site to cover some of the parts on my first noobie skin. The Racing skin.

    Importing textures is a pain in UPaint though, I had to mess with it for a week to trick it into importing textures. It's difficult to make a pro skin in UPaint, you need a better program if you want something REALLY nice.

    there is a VTM on Maya on 3dbuzz right now. Hedge is going through it. Doesn't cover teamskins afaik, but still a good way to learn some modelling techniques in PLE.

    Well as you have heard, I've finished the RenegadeRetard skin, but I lack proper photo-editing software, so my attempt on your skin will be an almost purely Upaint pursuit. I advise others to try their hand at this project as well, but I will try anyways after finals week.

    Maybe someone can give Webby's Gene Simmons a shot!

    I'll spray up a model in UPaint that will resemble Gene Simmons, but it's gonna look really bad. Really Bad.

    A guy at work hooked me up with Maya, because I really was going to take a stab at that Gene Simmons model, but I just don't have the time to learn how to model let alone paint something that will look halfway decent.

    But if Webby wants a noobie skin to wear, just say the word.

    Maybe I'll paint a Gorge skin to look like Gene.

    I don't know what's worse... the guy in the makeup, or his friend over there grabbing himself standing next to Simmons the Hut
