(Male) UV Layout
« on: July 10, 2018, 12:11:13 AM »
Hi, I was wondering if possible to get the UVW layout for the male version.
I would like to paint my own textures from head to toe.

Thank You.... Tom..

Hi Tom,

Custom male characters in SexSim aren't as fully supported as female ones, so there's not a super whole lot of info about making them, nor can they be made within the Character Editor. They can be made via XML files, though, and I assume you've already got that far.

There are actually two separate UVW types for males in the game. The first type is what was used for a few of the early male characters, and then we remapped the UVs to make things easier moving forward.

I've just now gone in and created special UVW maps for you, which I've attached to this message. To make proper use of them, make sure that you choose a value of 4 or higher for the <body>xx</body> tag within the character's XML file. Otherwise the character will use the old UVWs, which aren't included in this attached file.

Please let me know if you run into any troubles. It's been a while since I worked with the male characters and I assume it will work fine, but I could be missing something. Keep me updated if you would. :)

Enjoy!

Thank you Giselle For these Maps. They're very Interesting. If I understand it ( doubtful!) you just create your new Man's textures. Create a Folder for them. edit an existing guy's XML doc so it points to the new folder.
and drop all those in Runtime/user_created/characters to play with him. So the new Guy will be already like installed when I start a new session of the Sim :) Pretty Nifty ! :clapper:

I believe that's how it works, yes. It's been a while since I messed with user created custom characters that aren't built into the game code.
