LEGO STAR WARS: Modding & skinning

I know this is a JK/JO forum, but it seemed like the most appropriate place to post this.

For a bit of fun, I've started reskinning characters from the LEGO Star Wars game.

You can check progress & developments in this fbtb.net thread.

There's a more general (scripting, model swapping) LEGO SW modding thread here.





Unfortunately there are some limitations with what can be done, depending on the whim of the programmer who made the UVmaps for the skin wraps over the models. (The Leia above should have brown arms, but the skinmap uses the same colour block for the torso base and the arms, sadly, and that's the only model with suitable hair to convert Padme to Bespin Leia).

Still, plenty of scope to get reasonably close approximations of existing official minifigs, and of course endless possibilities to make custom minifigs working within the limitations of the skin meshes.

I will be writing a tutorial and including the texture extraction/insertion scripts in a Lego Star Wars Mod tools.zip in the next month or so.

HYSTERICAL in a good way right?

Say, I figure some of you will be unfamiliar with the game. It's pretty damn cool actually, but focuses entirely on the OT (except for the bonus level in the Tantive IV from the start of ANH which features Leia, Vader & Stormtroopers).

For more on the game the official site is http://www.legostarwarsthevideogame.com

Unfortunately I can't colour the hip piece independently of the torso due to the skinmap pulling the textures from both pieces on this model from the same area of the skin. It should be dark brown.

I may try fudging it and adding a brown strip to the bottom of the torso front decal & see if that looks any good. And I don't think he ever came with a cape in the LEGO Sets (but he looks better in the game with one regardless). All in all, not too bad...

Hey this is pretty cool. I don't have the game, but you are tempting me to buy it.
