I’ve been busy with work, adventure writing and making handouts, which have not left much time to post here, but now I have something that you might like.
Ok, this is alos one of the things I’ve been doing and I’ve decided to write something about it. I want to thank Gill Brooks for teaching me how the masks works in Vue and how they can be used very creatively.
Ys, I’m alive, but I’ve been rather busy with so much that I haven’t had the time to post here, and most things haven’t been of interest for most of you anyway. But this time I have something useful. (I know PB will snag and show some funny new uses of it on the DJ forum).
We’re still building low polygon house for Vue and today we’re gonna go into texturing the model.
This post is about a request that was on the Dundjinni forum for some items, among them dead police officers as the map was some zombie apocalypse map with dead people, doctors and police officers. The problem was that no one had any good police officers, so I decided maybe I can tweak some materials as I got a M4 Police hat from a hat pack.
OK, today we will continue with the V4 Archer pants, to see where that take us.
Back at DAZ, they have been running something they call Mars Madness, which is fun. New items are released at a 75% discount and all stores are having huge sales. Among the coolest items so far was the V4 Archer outfit by Bobbie25, and there was a thread in the forum for us noobs making texture mods to that, so I could not resist.
Today we will finish the CIS Vest, our first real Poser figure texture modification. The reason I say figure is because all clothes are rigged, they have bones information so they can adjust to the adjustments of the character they fit to. You make the character skinny, the clothes gets tighter, you make him fat, the clothes get larger. Life is so much better in the virtual world.
So this will be a break in the map making again, showing something else that I’ve learned, and is still learning, and that is making texture modifications to existing Poser and DAZ Studio Props and Figures. This is easy when you know how, but it would be even easier using programs like Photoshop, but I have my toolbox and I have some tools that can make this go really good. This is the first cloth modification I’ve done, this is virgin territory for me.
We’re gonna finish the Stars & Stallions saloon today, so we got a full day.
