Hi guys. I modder from Russia. I know how to do tintMask for parts. I can teach you how to do it, since I have little time to engage in the creation tintmasks himself.

The issue wasn't a matter of knowledge, just that the photoshop DDS plugin installer wasn't working for me. I have since gotten it working, and discovered that I could just use paint.NET instead. Sorry. Forgot to remove that from the OP. Will fix now!

OFF TOPIC: That model looks amazing! I'm thoroughly impressed. Are you making a parts mod or something? That would be brilliant!

MOAR OFF TOPIC: Also, I am having a lot of difficulty figuring out your user avatar. What IS it?

Okay. If I can do something to help, write here.

OFF TOPIC №1: My friend and I did mod with new parts. He created some cool heads in Skulptris, and I compiled them into package-mod. The idea failed due to incorrect operation of the textures (I think this problem once encountered Davo).
Here are a few more details:

OFF TOPIC №2: On my avatar creation by Darkkostas25 ("Deus Ex Mashina") which I imported in 3D editor and rendered. It was a long time ago, now I do it qualitatively :D

Well, there's an easy way to fix the texture issue. Here it is, as explained by EMD, who discovered it:
Emd4600 [ASR] wrote:1. Grab your UV map of the parts. Get sure all the part is only one object (you can do that selecting them and pressing Ctrl+J)
2. Go to the UV editor. You'll see a sqaure, right? Okay, then get sure any thing of the UV map is out of that square (that causes a bug and in Spore the part is completely black)
3. Select all the UV map pressing A (get sure all is selected, if not, press A two times more)
4. Hold Ctrl and move the texture up. You'll see the UV map is aligned to an invisible grid. So, move it 8 times up, so all the UV map is over the square.
5. Zoom and get sure the UV map isn't touching the square (this will cause some buggy zones on the texture).
6. You can press Alt+Z and see if all it's correct.

Have here a more comprehensible image:

If you meant your part sees black for no apparent reason, make sure nothing it's outside the UV box before you move it up.

Thanks for adding that. I really need to make a list of all these GIFs you've made.

Jeeze, looks like I've missed quite a bit of news

Well, first off, huge congratulations Rob! I'm very much looking forward to what you may have prepared.

If needed I can try assist in the beta testing. Or at least, I'll let you know if I find anything wrong with the patches you may release.

You have my full support.

On a side note. I made a huge post on DI thread that the mod was up for grabs and that i have retired from any real modding.

stuff man. I know you've been very busy outside of modding for a while now, but still sad to see you say you really are done with modding.

I gotta say... thanks a lot for what you have done for the Spore community. A lot of people seem to thank me for keeping Spore alive... and yet there's no way I could of done that without you and your ideas. Not a chance.

I hope you're enjoying whatever it is that's taking you away :P

Thanks! I could use Beta Testers. I'll PM you the current Build...immediately. Can't wait to see what you make with it, if anything! I also PMed you on the matter a few weeks ago. Guess it didn't go through...?

Even when Davo says he's leaving, he doesn't...atleast, he hasn't in the past.

Messaged received, I'll check it out in a sec

It would appear I do not get any notifications anymore from DavoOnline. I used to get emails when so and so happens, but my inbox is completely silent, so I guess I was never notified about your previous message(s).

Sorry about that :( Checking it all now

Image Response recieved...I'm a little puzzled. Now I know I was right in thinking that Davoonline PMs should be checked for directly. I never liked email notifications. I'm always paranoid that they might stop working...and then they did. I'm just glad my message was recieved...even if the timing could've been better. Not your fault, so don't feel bad.

WOOO, NEW NEWS!!!

I found a bunch of unused parts in Darkspore...fists:

Nothing special, they're just fisty versions of existing graspers, and they don't even have any animations...

...except for the one third from the front. The used version of that hand is Deep Blue. The fist version...cyan Now, you may wonder, ""Why are there fists in the first place?". My theory is...well, backgound information first: for those of you who don't play Darkspore, most of those hands belong to characters who hold their weapons. Staves, Clubs, Axes, and Swords. My theory is they were made for that purpose, and then scrapped when the developers realized they could just use animations instead of separate models.

OH REALLY?

Anyways, I'm glad to see you've returned. My suspicions were correct. Wait...

...are you gonna...forcibly repossess Dark Injection or something? I'd much rather see this turn into a collaboration or something like that. But it is technically your legendary mod, so it's really your choice. However, there is one thing I refuse to let you decide, and that is this: Like it or not, I will implement proper icons for the effects. Also, if you don't want to continue developing the mod, the beta testing door is open to you. And by that I mean if nothing else, I'd like to get your thoughts on the new features. And now, I need to go delete some palette pages that broke some stuff.

ok so heres the deal. I still love spore and This mod is EPIC. but all I want from it is the darkspore parts, colors and the extra bot parts. not all the other stuffs. When I got this mod to work I was so happy... but then I realized... it's a little overwhelming. I feel like this might be a sort of impossible request, but, is there a way you could make a download for each section of parts and keep dark injections as a multipack or something like that? It's just far to cluttered for my liking. Thanks for reading this. hope it isn't so much to ask. P.S. ONE MORE THING: this is less important, but can you make the limbs have full arms like that in base spore? might be more of an OCD thing, but it would help

Request 1: I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Could you provide the request in a more orderly form? Preferably less of a text wall?
Request 2: Camßεn's Dark Genetics mod has editors you could use to make your own limbs that way.

Arright, I actually didn't expect a response! so thats awesome.

1: I gotcha on the organization, and hopefully this doesn't still count as a great wall a' text.

2: nice to know about Dark Genetics mod.

3: you know how Dark Injections includes abilities, armor, sounds, invisible limbs, etc...? I only like some features of the mod. I feel as though spore is unplayable with all those tabs and other parts due to the unorganized clutteredness of it all (I do understand that the mod is currently a WIP).

4: What I am asking is if there is a way to install ONLY the features I like about the mod (Darkspore parts, Extra Botparts, and Colors) rather than the whole deal.

EDIT: 4.5: I noticed that you have, in the past, given people isolated parts of dark injections such as invisible limbs. Thats sort of what I am looking for.

5: I love the mod, and somehow still love spore even though it's what? five years old? However, although Installing it as my first mod was absolutely incredible, there is too much stuff and I uninstalled it.

6: My suggestion would be to create an optional page of downloads that have the individual features of the mod to download.

7: no, I do not expect you to take my suggestion

8: yes, it would make my day if you did take the time to help one insignificant Sporian.

Thanks for taking the time to read my more organized and split up tower of words, and keep being awesome! :D
