This tutorial will show how to re-color and duplicate an armor. I like this armor, but I want it to be blue and I want to keep the original armor.
this, and of course Gimp which I provided a link on my blog; right there ->.
Clicking on the flower icon will open my texture folder, I need to find my blue re-texture that I just saved.
Now I just need to add the new blue mesh to my game. (:.
That's it, I really hope this helps someone. If you want to re-texture something pretty much do it the same way. For less-simplistic re-texturing it helps to know where to get textures. Google is a good place (if I want wool texture I just Google image search 'wool pattern, or wool texture) as well as many other texturing sites, it also helps to stock up on Photoshop brushes that you can get for free offline... I also use google to search for Photoshop brushes (it will usually take me to Deviantart.com) . Also for bigger re-textures you need to make normal maps so your texture shows up correctly in game. For normal maps you need This gimp plug-in. Normal maps make your texture pop-out in game. For example I like to adds cracks and nicks to plate armor... I can easily take a Photoshop brush to an existing texture and make that texture look cracked and worn; but in order for the cracks to have depth and texture in game I need to adjust the normal maps.
