Question about retextures, ports and mashups

Post by Cyberbullet on Sun Dec 11, 2016 11:52 pm

What are the general guidelines on doing mashups and re-textures on someone elses work? My skills are essentially non existent. But I have some ideas I would like to put together, they can be for personal use no problem. But I like to be involved in the community and would love to share with you guys. And maybe get feedback to improve on said skills. I don't want to step on anyones toes. There are some amazing people and their works here and I don't want to take away from that in anyway. If someone could just give me some general direction on this sort of thing, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!

I´d say you have to ask the creators if you are allowed to use their work, i mean if you do it for yourself there shouldnt be any problem. For sharing the mods you need´to ask for permission of the author

@Cyberbullet - its always difficult if you talk about someone else work. As it is for your personal use i see no problem, but if you want to share or upload it then you need permission from the modder your using assets.

Now to the skills. For meshups you should have some basic knowledge how to work with 3ds max or blender. With those 3d programs you can edit the meshes you want to meshup, like deleting parts or moving them to the possition you need.
As for retexuring you need photoshop or gimp. Also a dds plugin to import dds files. And of course Nifskope, to set the texture paths you need for your meshes. That should be all you need. Good luck and Happy Modding Thumbs Up

@"Cruz011" - I have gotten pretty comfortable with Outfit studio. A few weeks of fumbling through the settings anyways. I used to use photoshop a lot years ago, I should be ok picking that back up. And I have some basic understanding of textures and layering. But above all I am stuborn as hell and believe I can do anything. Hopefully that works out.  Smile For now I am going to just work on retextures and mashups but hopefully more unique works later on. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know.
