Ok fixed the "flat" look that I had before by adding spec and bump, but I now get this

And it doesn't matter whether I have a bump on its own or a bump and spec, I still get the shiny look. I have the Spec Map and Specularity sliders right down to almost nothing. Anyone know how to fix?

That's GIMS problem but it fixed for me by changing from sunny to EXTRA sunny.

other weather modes give the shiny

 

I exported all my models with all the sliders to the top.

How do you rig the neck with the head and body because on some of my mods the there is a invisible gap when niko goes into idle mode and start looking around and another thing I'm trying to figure out is I get these weird artifacts even after rigging the model as you suggest for example when I go into edit envelops and set the vertices I ususal do ctrl+a to select all then add 1 abs effect and paint weight but still have spikes coming out of face or even a body part such as biceps or triceps

I have the same issue with Spidey.. I fixed it sort of on a earlier version, but I had to have Spidey exactly lined up, then manually lower the head into the torso to close the gap.. I'm guessing I will have to do the same thing this time, for all of the seams though.. There is a slight gap at his waist, wrists, neck, and ankles.. Between Iron Man not working, and all of the bugs with this smooth Spidey model, I've been going insane.. Sorry for the double post also, I didn't read up far enough!

Okay I figured out how to close those gaps what you have to do is isolate every individual part such as left arm right arm and etc. then go into editable mesh the choose vertex afterwards select the select object tool highlight area that needs to be modified then choose select and move and there you have it you are able to stretch the polygons to fill that gap but I don't think it will work if you have already attached vertex to niko bones

Well I decided to make a biped for Spidey to position his arms, his hands work too now. Now all I have to figure out is why are the body parts all gaped slightly, I know I can move them in 3ds MAX before I export but that doesn't seem right.. And how do i get the neck to work right, cause it's really stretchy!

H1Vltg3: To fix the gap the only thing I have thought of doing is to make the full body replace head.wdr and as for the other ones just make them super small and rig them to the head.

Wtf?

I tried to export and always get this error message

 

 

ERROR::Skinned mesh "dev_model/head_000_r/head_000_r_high" must contain only 1 GTA IV material with PED shader!

 

As far as i know, i followed the tutorial

and i only use 1 GTA IV material.

Tried it again, got the same error message.

 

EDIT:

ah, silly me. Miss one small step.

I got my model work ingame, although in daylight he looks like plastic.

 

Thanks for your tutorial, goin.

Just to make sure.

You wouldn't believe how hard rigging this with my crap PC.

Loading takes ages and other problem.

So i need to know for sure before i tried it.

 

Thanks.

I only tried it once with Claude's head, and I got some transparency bugs. But maybe I screwed up the alpha itself.

hey, just out of interset, i looked at the 3d max site, and am i wrong or is it the one priced around 3000 dollars? dont know if i am just being totally blind and missing something but that is alot! are there alternatives is their an other program? i just want to edit the head of niko to look abit like Clint Eastwood (Dirty Harry). is there an other program? could i use Gmax as i got that with MS flight sim.

by the way great tut , wouldnt no where to start without it.

 

I bet i have asked a pretty stupid question confused.gif

Yeah black, that's the bug. On some wheaters it looks okay though.

 

SpartanTMcC: You are not blind, 3D MAX is a professional tool, it's expensive. You can downlaod the 30 Days trial.

And no, only 3D Max can be used.

About the hair:

I think is not a bug. If you dont have the complete shape of the head (only head) always you see like that.

If The hair is transparent, and you dont have the complete head you see the face (players face) in the inside. but remember that only one side of the mesh is textured.

If you go inside a building with the trainer you can not see the building from the inside, only the outside of others.

I think this law applies to all models in the game.

But if you have the entire head and also the hair, maybe it is another problem.

Sorry if dont helps. blush.gifdozingoff.giflol.gif
