    Your thread was probably moved into the correct part of the forum - if you cannot access it contact the Help desk.

    I've made you a sign the same as the one in the photo you linked in the other thread. It's now on the DLS as Car sale sign 01 <KUID:68213:23020>.

    It is allowed to be re-skinned, so you can make other variations yourself by changing the image in the texture file (keep the file name car sale sign.tga the same). I recommend only altering the part of the image that maps to the face and edges of the sign board because the associated normal map is designed to be flat/non-bumpy there.

    Changing the part that maps to the black stand is not advised unless you know how to generate a new normal map to suit the changes.

    Feel free to upload re-skins to the DLS under your own kuid numbers and asset usernames. Do the right thing and abide by the License terms.

    A penny for your thoughts, which movie? Maybe Fargo? Or perhaps this one, Suckers.

    Hi Deane,

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do this for me, however I can't find the asset in the DLS under the name or the code that you have said above?

    You have explained how to make basic changes but….

    1. Do I clone the asset then make the changes?
    2. Is the image a JPEG?


    Regards

    Harry

    It's been on the DLS for about 12 hours as I write this and 14 people have downloaded it so far, so it really is there.

    The name and kuid are correct. If you're searching with Content Manager, I believe it can take a little longer before it shows up there, but you can always search the DLS web pages directly. It's a TANE asset, so make sure you have ticked the TANE box before initiating the search.

    As for the questions;

    1. Yes, cloning is one way to do it. Don't forget to make a new thumbnail image to show how your new, re-skinned sign looks. Otherwise it will get very confusing for other users.
    2. No it's a TGA file. Read the second sentence in post #3 above. The file name and type were both written in bold type.

    Hi Deane,

    Sorry, how do I search the web pages directly?

    How do I make the simple changes? A step by step guild would be really helpful please?

    Regards
