Texturing for dummies!

Texturing for dummies!

Required Tools

Introduction

Most people on this forum ask "i wanna make model" "how do u install that?" "why isn't model working?"...

Well, wouldn't it be better to have a full tutorial available?

I decided to make one.

 

Step #1

Get the tools that I said before, and install them.

 

Step #2

Open TXD Workshop.

 

You shall see this:

You may not understand much, but for begining they are 2 buttons you need to use.

user posted image

Open IMG - will open an .img archive, and will be able to directly edit TXDs from it. These are the .imgs used from the "models" folder:

  • gta3.img probably the most used one, has the much disk space and stores ALL the models
  • gta_int.img stores all the interior models
  • player.img stores all the player's clothes, including haircuts
Open TXD - will open a standalone TXD (not in an .img), which will be ready to use. These are all the .txds used from the "models" folder:
  • fonts.txd stores the game's character fonts (diploma and pricedown)
  • fronten1.txd stores the game's radio station Logos
  • fronten2.txd and fronten3.txd store some menu logos
  • fronen_pc stores the mouse and the map icon from the game's menu
  • effectsPC.txd and particle.txd store all the optical effects you see in-game (window crash, smoke...)
  • hud.txd stores all the radar and HUD icons
  • misc.txd stores wheel models
  • pcbtns.txd stores the arrows used in "Cesar Vialpando" and "Life's a Beach"
Whatever button you use, browse for the .img/.txd and open it.

If you opened an .img, goto Step #3; if not, jump to Step #4

 

Step #3

Once you opened the .img, you'll see this:

Look at the list on the right - those are the textures.

First, you'll see these .dffs. You DON'T want to touch them if you're only going for modeling.

Scroll down until you'll find these:

THESE are what you want to edit.

Just click one and see what's in.

 

Step #4

Once you opened the .txd, you'll see this:

user posted image

  1. Images - here you see the images located in the .txd
  2. The Texture
- here you see the texture(image) you selected

We want to edit it, right?

user posted image

First we must choose the type of image you want to edit.

  • Image - the normal image
  • Alpha Mask - the 'mask' of the image, sorta like a background.
  • Mixed - mixed view between Image and Alpha Mask
Click one of those.

After that, click on the "Export" and select "png":

Save it anywhere on your PC, then minimize Workshop.

 

Step #5

Enter GIMP, go to file - open and select your saved .png.

Now here comes the fun part - do your magic! smile.gif

 

Step #6

After you did your magic, save it.

Maximize Workshop, and select "Import":

user posted image

Browse and select your .png, then click "save TXD"

Exit Workshop.

 

Step #7

Work is done, time to try it out in-game! smile.gif

Well, you can get better than me confused.gif

 

Have Fun!

Well, what do you mean? Make a texture with higher res? Well use a free, good image editing uttility, like GIMP to scale the image.

 

And please don't bump.
