How to make skins

Recommended Posts

xMetalKnightx

Where or how can I learn all this? how to make skins for SA completely from scratch. I have searched and watched tutorials on YouTube, but they all are about editing. I know 3D Max is used and that it is not easy to make them, but I don't find anything more helpful anywhere else.

Find any character modelling/rigging tut.

The only thing you have to do to make it work for SA is use the skeleton from an existing SA skin.

Sloth-

If i understand well, you want to modelate a character from scratch and then, convert it to the game's format.

 

Well, you must understand that those are completly different and independent objectives.

 

For modelling, you should just watch modelling tutorials (or paid courses, whose will teach you in a more professional way), and you can learn using any 3D modelling software. You are not necessary tied to 3DS Max. But you also should be aware of the fact that this could take a lot of time, effort and practice to dominate and master it, is not something as simple as create any other mod. I guess is like drawing...

 

For converting to SA's format, there are several tutorials out there. Here's an example (i learned from this):

Also, this for fixing alpha issues in skins:

For beggining, you simply should focus on converting. Find a model you have interest in, and convert it. Practice with some few. Then, if you still feel enthusiast in modelling, go for some tut.

 

You can find character models here:
