Help on Making an Island Mod

Post by Thunderfudge » 23 Aug 2008 13:22

Hi, i'm new at making mods, and im having some trouble. I'm using Easy Mod Creator, and just to test it out, I made converted all the grass to grayscale, to make it obvious if it worked or not. So, I compressed it into a .zip file (i converted a few other things to grayscale too, including the loading screen) and put it in the mod folder. When I opened it in-game, everything was like the normal island environment. Can someone please help? Thanks.
(BTW if i was supposed to post this in the TechSupport topic, sorry, and could someone please move it?) :?

your zipfile must included a image-folder. and in the image-folder are your modified dds-files.

i think the best way is, you upload it elsewhere.
and we can download your mod and see whats wrong.

I think I found something - i opened a few of the .dds files and they all have either a big light grey box, then the modded piece several times below it. Is that supposed to be there?
e.g. Image

EDIT
oops, sorry, youll have to either download it or save it as a temp file (drag 'image' to the address box). Btw you mods are awesome 8) :mrgreen:

EDIT2
Ok, I got the gray box and repeated image fixed, but, even though I converted it to grayscale, it's still exactly the same as the normal island environment.

It looks to me like Easy Mod Creator isn't very good at converting the dds files correctly.

I've never used it before so I can't work out why it's doing that for you, because I use Photoshop and nVidia's dds plugin for that and never had problems with it.

You'll have to link your edited (corrected) image for one of us to be able to see if you fixed it and/or why it isn't modifying the game for you.

edit

Grayscaled the default texture myself, put it in a mod, loaded it, it worked. so I'm confused.

Ahh... I got it working now. I think it was EMC's fault. I tried just using photoshop and the NVIDA plug-in and it seemed to work. Thanks all
