Hi guys...

I've finally manage to retexture Fo3 (the brotherhood of Steel Power Armor)... and it was quite simple.

First i used Fo3 Archive Utility to unpack all files contained on "Fallout - Textures.bsa" then i got the powerarmor_body.dds file from textures/armor/powerarmor/ (archive directory), then using the compressonator 1.41 i formated the .dds files to jpeg and i opened it with paint, then i putted this improved reference to DAC on it...



I know its not much but it was just a test...

Then i reformated the file to dds and got him back in is place... I remade the archive using Fo3 Archive utility and swaped Fo3 original texture pack by mine and voíla...



And to those with a little bit more of patirnce than me you can also make your modifications using shaders (wich require more advanced tools)...


While my objectives are aimed at moddeling and modifying Tes Construction Set (oblivion editor) to put it working on Fo3 files... this is already something to me... I've already posted a topic at the modding forum but it seems that almost no one goes there and im conviced that this might be mostly interesting to most of you... i think...

Anyway... if any of you want to play with retexturing Fo3 i'd be glad to be of some assistance (in any way i can and if needed)... Just PM me, Mail me or post your questions here...

I might be able to advise you a couple ways you could have made it better. Having only a message on the front looks kind of like this.

Try making a copy of the Outcast Power armor, bringing it into photoshop and turning the red stripe textures orange. Black/Orange seems to be our color scheme.
After that, use the same font to write 'DAC' on the shoulderpads.

Try it out.

Oh for fucks sake... this is a fucking embarrassment. Reminds me of so called "personal Skins" at Facepunch Forums - where some untalented dork loads a skin in photoshop and puts some letters on it.

THIS IS NOT A RETEXTURE. THIS IS CRAP.

A retexture would be an ENTIRELY NEW SKIN or HIGHLY MODIFIED.
This shit is half assed and worthless.

A real reskin takes long.
If this took you long, then you're untalented and should try learning the piano.
If this didn't take you long, then it's half assed and you shouldn't post such utter shit here.


However I like the message - DAC is so shit that it now has a skin for Fallout 3.


Congratulations.

I still agree. I find it hard to believe Myron isn't an alt and is real.

Yeah, so we should all be glad that you're not a mod here. Sure, the post was "harsh" but it wasn't a personal insult. Prolly this Myron is a nice fellow. Or not. I don't care. The point is, that this "reskin" sucks.

considering he couldn't open up the construction set w/ f3's current setup, I"d say that even "retexturing" the DaC 'motto' on some power armor is pretty cool.

But please, feel free to do *any* modding of *anything* relevant and I'll say it's pretty damn cool, sir.

Why dont you just critisize those who fucking GET PAID to do this? I was just giving you some tips on how to do Y-O-U-R___O-W-N___M-O-D-D-I-F-I-C-A-T-I-O-N-S... And if i post it here it was because no one seems to go to the modding forums...

Maybe this is the reason why Bethsoft didn't release a construction set for Fallout 3.

The Construction Set doesn't allow you to change textures but... whatever... Still, for the third time... i've only posted this to show you how to change Fo3 textures and not to exhibit some masterpiece. But it would seems that many of you are going throw a hard time trying to understanding it... Still... this is what i get for trying to give some little contribute to this community... but from now on i'll just dont give a fuck about this... I joined DAC to share my knowlege of Fallout games both tweaking it, modding it and playing it but like i said, this is what i get for trying to help...
