Yeah I'm completely lost.. I don't know how to use new textures o3o What I want to do it texture most of the body ballz and all the paintballz but I'm lost and I'm just making a mess trying to figure it out
Are you doing the main texture editing in Lnz or Petz Workshop? I'm happy to help if I knew how your going about texturing. Or if you're like "what the flop" just tell me which you'd like to know how to use to texture. I'll make a tutorial for you.
I'm using LNZ pro and I started again from scratch cause I was terribly confused. Ive been changing it in the color info override except I've been using all 0s in the group section, a tutorial I read said it would work. This time everything worked fine except I got the wrong texture on both the bod and paintballz :/ I was lead to believe on a tutorial I read that the list of textures starts at zero, so like (sorry I don't remember exactly how the textures are written)
Yes the texture list starts at 0 and goes up from there. However, if you have everything textured at the correct corresponding number for the texture, check and make sure that your "link" to the texture is right. I do that a lot where I typo it or I forget to change it to resource/dogz instead of art/textures.
Also, I don't know if you know, or even if the texture you're working with is external, but most external textures need a transparency of 0 so if you leave it at 1 it can look strange.
Welp.. Okay... I had gotten frustrated and just put everything to use the default texture but I went back and changed everything back and this time this happened.. The paintballz seem to be the right texture but the bod is flat except that one bod ball and its not even the right texture o3o
Also, this is off topic sorry but for whatever reason my horses always come out of the AC with a brown eye and a blue eye and it doesnt matter if i change it in the .dog file it always comes out the same, i have to change it in the .pet LNZs .-. any ideas why that happens?
Sorry i'm having issues with my screenshot tool atm just started yesterday... I'd personally stop using Lnz for body balls (chances are you'll accidentally wreck your breedfile and end up with an unfixable mutant whcih happened to me when I was learning textures) Go into petz workshop open your horse breed file, click on the 4th button along the top "textures" once you've clicked on that go down to the bottom of your screen you should see a drop down box, click and pick your texture then click on all the untextured balls. If you wnat to add a texture go to the side area next to the screen of your horse and choose "texture" tab then click "add" then highlight by clicking on it and click "edit" and you can choose a new texture to add your horse play around with the different features to change where you get the texture from and how it is presented. Once you have a better understanding of PW then move on to small tweaks on Lnz (makes it more understandable) then figure out what your doing this could take a while and won't happen overnight. This is how I learnt and to be honest not many people starting out or otherwise use Lnz to texturize the horses body balls I only use lnz to fix up mistakes I made, but even that is unnecessary when PW is so easy to hack around in. Hope this helped. The eye problem can easily be fixed in PW click the side tab "eyes" click on the box/colour of each marked Left Iris and right Iris Choose colour and save and you're done.
You can also go to the addball section to change balls. This is probably slow as hell but what I personally do (because I'm not fancy pants with LNZ) is I'll do what Appy says, texture the dummy file, open both the dummy file and my desired breedfile in LNZ, then go down to the addballs section (one of the top sections) and just change all the ball numbers that I textured on the dummy on the main file. Here's an example of one I did:
The difference is the last number - on the top example, it's using Texture #5 from my list, while on the bottom it's the default texture from the base file. If you change that one to the 5 (or whatever number your texture is) on the desired balls, you should be good to go.
If I use PW will I still be able to send the horse to other people? I heard that it screws stuff up o3o And I don't know it seems weird that having it "precious dirt_zpsnommfgkw" would work for the paintballz but not the color info override .. I'll probably give necos method a go~
