Help with templates.

Post by Ice_Dingo » 24 Feb 2008 07:46

Is it possible to download the template file and then make that into a 3D model or is that just for making 2D skins? I'd really like to just download the template because it is a lot smaller.

Template files are generally a 2D guide to assist you in painting a skin in an external graphics application. If that's what you're meaning it's of no use in creating a 3D model, it's as you say "just for making 2D skins". By loading the template into Paint Shop Pro, Gimp, Paint.net (or whatever the template works for) it allows you to know what to paint and where, so that the 2D skin will work on the model once you use it in the game.
