[MDL] Garand Reskin

04-11-2005, 04:12 PM
Well, my hunt for a skin model has brought me to the place that should have been my first digging grounds instead of my second-to-last. To avoid any copyright infrictions I am going to supply a picture only outside of these forums, you can get me on AIM, MSN, or Skype to see what I'm looking for.

In short without supplying the picture, I am in search of a garand model that has lighter wood, (Not bleached wood though) with an aged look to it. The metal texture I would love to see a little banged up and used looking but not OLD.

Thanks to anyone that puts me in the right direction!

I'm guessing your talking about the BIA M1.

Posting a picture from another game isn't a problem is it mods?

I was about to suggest Splinters HI Res models of the M1 Grand but since he is looking for lighter wood I need a picture what color wood u want.

Nope. As long as its to illustrate something and that the original image isnt copyright.

Posting the textures from the game however is not ok.

What I thought, so throw it up Dog.

Thanks for clearing that up guys, I just didn't think that breaking any rules my first post around is the way to make a good impression.


This picture (Though edited just a tad) is still belonging to a copyrighted game, the image itself is not copyrighted..(Unless the makers of the game forbid screenshots taken and given among friends)

That is the color wood I'm looking for and as I said, anything as close to this as can be found would be ideal.

Umm, use the colour picker in photoshop and take it from the JPEG?

You can also achieve a similar looking wood texture by taking one of Splinters Hi-Res models and applying the gaussian blur filter to the textures with a setting of about 32.

If I knew anything about skinning it would make my life easier :p

I understand takng the image to photoshop, but how do I get it on the actual model?

Well, I tried my own hand at this thing and found a way to lighten up the wood...Not a lot, and I didn't actually sit down and work on it like I should have but this is my first throw together.
