|Adding Custom tattoo's in San Andreas|
|The tools you'll need|
TXD workshop (tutorial made with 3.5, will also work with newer versions) Download
SA GXT editor Download
|1) Making the Tattoo|
You can do this in 2 way's :
1) make a new TXD
2) adjust my txd
i'm going to explain way 2, because that's the easy way to make a tattoo.
Download Sergiow.txd LINK
Open it with txd-workshop, you'll see a black image, when you click on alpha, you'll see "Sergiow"
if you want a black tattoo, you only need to adjust the alpha :
Click on alpha/mask, then click on export.
open the exported file with paint, photoshop,... and edit it.
This is a picture so you can see where you're tattoo will be :
everything that's white will show up on CJ.
save it as BMP/tga and import it in the txd
be sure that alpha/mask is selected when you import your mask!
click on "alpha mix view" (in txd-workshop) to check if you did it right
Now you have a txd with your own tattoo, now rename it, i named mine Sergiow.txd
Add it to player.img
|2) Editing Shopping.dat : Part 1|
Open GTA San Andreas\data\shopping.dat with notepad.
Go to +- line 520 and there are the tattoos.
This are the code's for where the tattoo should come:
# 4 = left upper arm
# 5 = left lower arm
# 6 = right upper arm
# 7 = right lower arm
# 8 = back top
# 9 = left chest
# 10 = right chest
# 11 = stomach
# 12 = lower back
now make a new line in your shopping.dat (mine is +- line 530) like this :
Sergiow => name of the TXD (step 1)
SERGIOW => you can choose this, you'll need it in step 4
8 => back top => a tattoo on CJ's back
respect 9 sexy 9 => respect and sexy
835 => price
PICTURE (picture of barton mission editor, you can just use notepad)
|3) Editing Shopping.dat : Part 2|
Go to +-line 1020.
there are 3 "sections" of tattoo's. here you can choose where you want the tattoo (los santos, las venturas,...).
the 1st section is los santos, the second san fierro and the third las venturas.
just add "item name of TXD" like this :
(my tattoo is in los santos, san fierro and las venturas)
|4) Editing the name of your tattoo|
open "GTA San Andreas\text\american.gxt" with "GTA: San Andreas GXT Editor 1.2"
Pick Entry -add
then it asks a "new name"
In step 2 (shopping.dat) you made a new line :
the "SERGIOW" needs to be the new name in your GXT-editor
Then on the right you type the name of your tattoo
|5) The picture you see when you buy a tattoo|
Open GTA San Andreas\models\txd\LD_TATT.txd
make a little image (64*64) of your tattoo.
in TXD workshop => image=> new
after that you import your mini-tattoo
double-click on you're mini-tattoo on the left and click on compressed
|This is what you'll get : http://users.myonlin...24073/tat/7.JPG|
