Avatar clothing Modding Guide

Postby cliffski » Tue Oct 07, 2008 10:13 pm

Hi, I just uploaded a guide to how the avatar clothes can be modded and adjusted here:
http://positech.co.uk/kudos2/modding_avatars.html
To create new clothing items you obviously will need some cool art skills :D But I'm sure some of you have them.
Feel free to ask any questions about how it all works here, and of course post your modded clothes.

Is there a non-plugin DDS exporter you know of? The only version of Photoshop I have is for Mac, and the NVIDIA plugins appear to be for Windows. If there's a program that does it, I could make the image in OS X and reboot into Windows to make it a DDS (since I doubt there are any Mac programs that can create DirectX-related files).

EDIT: http://developer.nvidia.com/object/texture_tools.html looks like it's what I was looking for.

There is also a plug-in for the GIMP that lets you edit DDS files. It can be downloaded at http://nifelheim.dyndns.org/~cocidius/dds/ This works with the latest version of GIMP for WIndows (2.6) I don't know if it works for the Mac or not...but the source code is there if you really want to get ambitious.
I think I've had this deja vu before.

Sam thank you so much for that.. :-) the good thing about being able to do this with the Gimp is it's free.. and getting the black spaces is not that hard, you just invert your selection ;-)

Glad to help another GIMP user. It's quite useful, and as you said, it's free!!! Free is good.
