Arrow Tomb Raider Legend Modding, Costumes & Texturing - Part II

Tomb Raider Legend Modding

This is a new thread. The first successful thread got 3900 replies and slowed down the Legend forum page for the slow internet connections. The first thread can be found here.

Let's continue here and have fun

-----------------------------------

What is this all about? (For the newcomers)

Many members of this forum (and why not you?) create beautiful outfits for our Legend Lara. To create an outfit, you need a small program. You can choose either TexMod or Tomb Ripper. With these programs, you don’t change only the outfit, but also Lara’s hair, eyes, skin, gear etc. You can also modify the complete levels textures, both background and foreground (thanks Chi for reminding me). The members can then download your work and use it whilst playing Legend.

Examples:

Blue Bikini by Tansy


Dantelle Dress by Gray


Sin City by zipper


BloodRayne by Tombcool


Our huge collection can be found here. On the same page you will also find detailed instructions for both programs and useful tutorials (written by shimodax and Lee). The tutorials explain how you can create an outfit (for the builders) and how you can use them in the game (for the players).

If you want your outfit to be included on HUB, you can send it to me: tombraiderhubNOSPAM@yahoo.com [remove the NOSPAM] or post to this thread.

NOTE: I just want to remind you that all outfits you post here and the ones you send me must agree with the following: They will not show anything more than what the original outfits show. For example, a bikini outfit must not show anything more than what the original bikini outfit show. Images that violate this rule will be removed without warning. Also, if you want to include a legend on the outfit (a message or something), make sure it is appropriate. Thank you.

"You can choose either TexMod or Tomb Ripper. With these programs, you donít change only the outfit, but also Laraís hair, eyes, skin, gear etc. The members can then download your work and use it whilst playing Legend."

Just to add to ELEN's great description on the use of these programs, please note that not only can you modify the above, but also the complete levels textures, both background and foreground.

So your not just limited to clothing, so get modding those backgrounds, walls, ceilings, etc,

You are only limited to your imagination

I hope that last thread goes to a better place.

I can't wait until I get the PC version of TR Legend so I can try all these great costumes and maybe make some of my own.

Is there a way of extracting textures from a custom outfit? Otherwise I don't see how I can redo my outfit.

Do you mean to extract the DDS or BMP or JPG (etc) files from the tpf file? (I take it you no longer have the files you made). As far as I know, you can't. But I haven't worked with TexMod for a long time, so wait for another reply too.

You must use .dds files to extract and save as DXT1 ARGB (1 bit Alpha) generate MIP maps.
the hair saves as DXT3 ARGB (Explicit Alpha) generate mip maps



EDIT: By the way, great avatar
