Right now, only recolors/ adding pictures to things can be done by me. Don't expect new models from me yet! I'll let you know when I get a hang of it.
Howdy! I'm Eva, and I do texture edits. This post was originally intended to just showcase some edits I'd done over the years that never really made it into any servers, but good 'ol Reed (and others) liked what they saw and now almost everything I add in here gets added in-game (I forget which ones I've submitted sometimes). You can make requests on this thread for sets in my showcase to be added in-game or for a new set you have in mind! (you can message in PM if you're shy ). I'd like to give a big thanks to everyone who's supported me either vocally or by running around in fashion I've edited!
I may or may not have accidentally deleted a few things I've done..
Need to redo:
[ ]Pika fan set M
[ ]Horror set
[ 1/4 ]Cyber Sapphire fist, stick, staff, wand
[ ]Red Goggles
[ ]Iron Man set
*(Not in order of priority, and I'll probably have to add more as I remember it.)
On another note, I made and added "The Wanderer" set, so, there's that. I'll try to dedicate all of tomorrow to recreating what was lost, and will hopefully be able to get it done in the same day.
Organized some sections and improved(?) layouts/ overall appearance. Updated some completed/in progress statuses. Added some to side projects. This update is mostly to let people know that I'm alive and haven't abandoned them. On a side note, a [hr] wouldn't hurt.
Sent in the shoes, updated requests, and am officially home and truckin' on. I'd also like to add how happy it makes me to see other people getting into editing after this post was made! If I were getting paid for this, I might feel intimidated by some of you. P.S, adding a "Side Project" list of things that I work on when an idea hits me.
Forgot to make an update on the post for the last 5 sets. This update is current with the addition of the female shoes and Iron Man. I didn't think to make screenshots of the shoes on the model as I was creating each color, so you get to see behind the scenes on those ones until (if) they go in-game.
I really did not expect all of the positive feedback or even to have my fashion added to the server! It's really a pleasant surprise, and I'd like to thank anyone involved. I added a request tab at the end, the order the requests are in is the order in which I received them and in which I'll do them. (Unless they're annoyingly difficult and demand being skipped for a moment.)
How I do it:
What I use:
CSViewer, Official FlyFF, paint.net, and Spotify (gotta' have my music).
How I use it:
Once you get CSViewer, you link its directory to official FlyFF (you need to patch it before CSViewer will work). Now, you can go to the "Clothing" tab and mess around with some set combos, or just hit "Randomize" in the first tab if you're absolutely unsure of what looks good.
When you mouse over some part of fashion in CSViewer, it's going to give you two file names in a pop-up description. The first file will have ".o3d" at the end. This is referring to the model or "skeleton" of that piece of fashion. The second file is going to end with ".dds" and this is the "skin" to that skeleton. It's what puts color on the model. You can imagine the .o3d as a bare clay model and the .dds as paint to make it look real.
Once you find the part you want to work with, launch paint.net. I have to run paint.net as administrator to save edits. To do this, just right click the "paint.net" icon and "Run as Administrator."
Now with paint.net open, press Ctrl+O (or click "Open") and go into official FlyFF's folder, then into "Model," then inside of "Model" there's a few folders involving textures. You only need to open the one that JUST says "Texture." Type in the .dds's file name for the item you have in mind, then open it and you can begin editing!
You need to save after each change you want to view, then in CSViewer you need to click "File" then "Reload Flyff Resources" and voila! You can see what you've done. Sometimes I'll stand around in-game and see something that sparks an idea, sometimes I'll base a new recolor off of a new color of an old thing, and sometimes I surf through things on CSView and make it up as I go. Don't be afraid to try new things! On paint.net, you can hold Ctrl+Z to undo EVERYTHING from start to finish as long as you haven't closed paint.net, and Ctrl+Y to redo everything all over again. Feel free to make your own showcase or show me what you've done in this thread or in PM.
A few tips:
If you let go of the clicker(?) while recoloring, it'll restart the coloring and look weird if you try to do the other half of something in another go. Just get a steady hand and do that part all in one go.
Putting other pictures on stuff looks cool. To do this, I recommend finding an image with an already transparent background. Copy it, then hit Ctrl+Shift+V to paste into a new layer and to be able to adjust the image. You'll have to hit Ctrl+Shift+F to flatten the image in order for it to save and display properly. This can be undone as well with Ctrl+Z if you want to redo the process. If you paste without the new layer, it will make you rotate your picture and everything under it! Be careful! To make your image transparent, open a blank on paint.net and erase (or use the magic wand) to clean away the background from the edges. If you don't get all of it, it will look funny guaranteed!
If you get better than me, I might have to beat you up! I'm just kidding, it's the role of the student to surpass the teacher. It's the role of the teacher to set them in the right direction before the arrow flies.
On textures that have a transparent background (grey and white squares anywhere on the image), you can erase parts of the image and those things will disappear from the object as well! (Example: Flowers on Chi hair(F) can be erased like on my Green Winter set so that they're not there anymore.)
Good luck, and most importantly, have fun!
