I decided i wanted to make my own arabian horse mod, and i'm having trouble again... i have no idea what's going wrong either since it isn't the normal things like fat foals that i know how to fix. help would be much appreciated the foals neck is invisible! i've tried adding and removing chunks of coding and can't figure it out.
and the adult has it's own problems: that line's connected to his man parts, i can't seem to get rid of it either! and other wise it looks good so this is really bugging me, please help me figure this out!
The missing neck & face balls happens when you mod in PW. If you go and look at the Addball section of the foal and the adult, some of the face and neck balls have 0's at the end. So if your foal has a 0 at the end of an addball but your adult doesn't have a 0 at the end of the addball, then your foal is gonna be "missing" that addball. So you remove the zero from the foal's addball and size it up until it looks okay in the game. Or vice versa you can add the zero back to the addball in the adult but then you'd have to re-size that ball, so it's just easier to mess with the foal since if it looks a little weird it's not a big deal but you want your adult to be perfect.
As far as the line goes, figure out which ball it is connected to (color the balls of the junk different colors and see which color the line turns into) and once you know which ball of the junk the line is connected to you can go into the Lines section and look for a line starting with that ball's # running to whichever leg ball that is.
The code would look something like:
# of junk ball, # of leg ball, 0, -1, -1, -1, 100, 100 or something similar
We know that the junk ball will be first because lines take on the color of the starting ball and not the end ball. I can also tell you that your line in question will most likely be very close to the end of the Line section, so start at the bottom and work your way up when looking for it.

Yea! no more invisible necked/headed foals! the problem with the extra lines is taken care of as well as a hole in the mares lower neck that i noticed while trying to fix it. thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction Jewellz!
this is the profile of it, i based it on a picture of what my arabian book calls 'the modern arabian' I'll admit that the fetlock covers the slope of the head a bit though it wasn't intentional and i'm still working on those pesky bangs so i'll update later on.
the bangs are fixed I like how it's turning out any sugestions?
Glad I could help! As far as the mod's looks go, I think the neck seems too steep/curved, or something. Up by the head, the neck curves down and while Arab's necks do curve, they don't curve down into the head, they run smooth and flat to the head and the top of the head bumps up a bit, so I'd raise your head (which you can do manipulating the y axis in the Move section in LNZ). If you raise the head from the move section, then all the connected balls will go with it. BUT that might give you a giraffe look so you might be better off lowering those upper neck balls and mane balls down a little so that it's not curving down to the head so much. That'd give you a thinner neck too which I think would help. If I were you I'd do a mixture of both raising the head and lowering the top neck balls & mane balls.

thanks Pollution! this one will probably be released before too long since i don't like keeping stuff to myself XD i'll just try to figure it out and make sure it goes out with it's dummy version when i do

I sent this file to haubing so hopefully it will be up on the ss file library before too long. my marwari mod is already up for anyone who wants it/wants to mod it in the mean time. Thanks Akmu <3 I'm really happy with this one and i'm probably gonna play with it for awhile before i do another mod XD maybe i'll even hex some horses to put up for sale?
