View Full Version : Making new body mesh?
21st Dec 2005, 6:49 AM
Its me bothering ya again. I've seen some really cool body meshes around here and and a few ideas in mind. I have Milkshape and wings 3d if you need to know. So can you point me to any tutorials or anything?

Yeah, start with Brianna's tutorial. You can only move points but it will teach you the basics. Then take a look at either using Meshtool with smd files or at learning bodychop. All of them are found in the create section in meshing and texturing areas, both the tutorial area and you'll find the tools and questions people have in the main areas.

I started meshing 2 weeks ago and I think it would be helpful to you to tell you what helped me ...
I suggest also NeptuneSuzy's tutorial here at mts2 - she uses another way to export/import Files from simpe to milkshape, and for me her way worked better. But except for that the 2 tutorials are the same ...
Try to only change skins by moving vertices first. I started meshing 2 weeks ago, and found out that adding vertices (for example to add a bow to a dress) is complicate ... If you feel ready to try check this out: http://drpixel.noneto.com/Al_tut.htm. It is a tutorial by DrPixel explaining how to put other boots to a mesh, but it also explains many things that are important if you don't want to use these shoes ... :) (for example how to assign vertices to the skeleton of a sim in order to make them animated).
Last but not least: Check out the threads I started. I asked some questions, maybe the answers are interesting for you too ...
Oh, one last thing: Check out spicysims, this site has a skinning tutorial that also gives tipps for accessory meshing ... (if you want to create new earrings etc.) Did not work with it until now (still trying to get my skin working), but looks great ...
Best regards from Germany! :)
