Darkspore paints problem

Unread postby DarkMagickan » Sun Aug 14, 2016 12:13 am

So I know you're aware of some of the problems with the Darkspore imported paints, but I just ran across a new problem:

The paint retains the first texture you added, even when you change it.
If a toy from Toy Story died, the kids wouldn't know, and the other toys would have to watch them play with the corpse.

That only happens for paints which don't have (working) effects yet, which is basically a fancy way of saying paints that do that are NYI. It would be helpful if you could provide images of the paints which do that (the icons, not the way they appear on the actual creature)

EDIT: Also they may only work on the highest graphics settings - IIRC I forgot to copy the particles to the medium and low folders.

Yeah, the magma pieces have no magma. That's a bit uneventful!

Spore doesn't support that effect... :/

I agree that the no-magma-texture sucks, but I deal with it by giving my creatures a magma-like texture (lots of bright orange and yellow works! on a base of ashy black, it's very convincing) Also, I think I know what OP is speaking of and I'll send screencaps when I'm home.
I used to make dragons, but now I make just about everything. Huge thanks to rob55rod and CamBen for their hard work on their part mods, which make my pastime a lot more interesting.

No need, I've already identified the issue...now I just need to find the particles and port them over. Generally the new Skinpaints need a lot of cleanup... ._.

Oh! That's good. I'm gonna make so many magma-textured things...
