Glamour Skins (Crysis Edition)

Postby DeathRow » Wed Apr 23, 2008 2:53 am

I thought I would start a thread on skins for Crysis

First, before you all start asking I would like to post a guide (Not mine) on how to skin..

Requirements:
You need the following programs to make custom textures:

* Adobe Photoshop (Free 30 day trial)
* NVIDIA's Photoshop .dds Plug-in
Or, I program that can open and edit .dds files.

Step By Step guide (editing a weapon for example):


1. Open Objects.pak
2. Unpack the texture that you want to use, the weapon textures are located in: \objects\weapons
3. Open the folder that you just unpacked and go to the Textures folder
4. Open weapon_name.dds with photoshop.
5. Now, you'll get the texture of the weapon. Edit this in whatever way you want.
6. Now choose File: Save As
7. First save it as a .psd so that you can continue working on the texture later on. Then choose File > Save As again and this time save as .DDS
8. Choose:
DXT5 ARGB 8 bpp | interpolated alpha
9. Now go back to the folder containing your edited texture, drag this into the correct folder in Objects.pak (Make sure you are not running SB2 or Crysis)
10. Now open up SB2 or Crysis and check out your own custom skin!

Warning: Please backup all skins so if you want the original back, you can just overwrite.
(Credits to Jasper and SuSELinux for the tutorial, over at Crymod)


Now then, onto some of my skins:

I found a new easy way to put skins ingame and it works for me.
After you've saved the file you have to create a "Objects" folder in your Game folder[...Crytek\Crysis\Game],create a weapons folder [...Crytek\Crysis\Game\Objects\weapons] and the folder where the skin was default in[example with the c4:Crytek\Crysis\Game\Objects\weapons\US\c4].

EDIT:Here's my first Crysis skin:the c4:

Well, if someone would ask me what weapon that is I would say AK-47. :)

Looks almost as good as you can get with the FY71 model, but the bottom part of the grip isn't wooden, why is that?

Haven't been 'round here in a while....bet nobody even recognizes me its been so long...

I made some sick (I don't even care if that sounds cocky...the hours I spent doing each little section by hand...if you can imagine, the screenshots do not capture the quality well, as my computer isn't exactly a high-end rig nowadays...) arctic skins for a Crysis mod I'm [slowly] working on...

Heres some of the arctic themed map I'm working on if any of you are interested...however, they are sorta scrambled up so there might be some early pics in the middle of newer pics, meaning you can't really tell the maps direction at all...so please just take them as eye candy and nothing more.
