Modelling question
« on: May 26, 2013, 06:46:39 am »
Decided to create some models and was wondering is it required for them to have textures for game import or can I import them without textures?

I made an airvent :D

You can put it in with no texture. It wont look as nice as the rest of the textured stuff though.

... No shit Thaddius.

You can import them without textures. IIRC texture files are .DDS files if you decide to texture it after all.

Select the object, ensure that no polygons, edges or vertices are selected then go to the modify list and search for UV Wrap, that will allow you to UV map your model, beyond this It would be several thousand words or more to teach you how to texture properly.

The model will look black in-game if it cannot call up a texture for the model, I recommend to have a basic texture (like just a plain color or something) for the game to call up and display.

If you are a student, you can download Autodesk Mudbox for free, might be worth giving a shot.

Is mud box a paint directly onto models program? sounds nice, albeit I think Id still prefer photoshop (for all the options and such)

Yep, You can also sculpt a bit with it, and iirc you can make bump and parralax maps with it.
