How to make holes/transparency in dino skins "less ugly"

Unread postby brolyeuphyfusion » Tue, 7th Jun 2016 8:05

If you're familiar with MST, you're familiar with the dinosaur TML footer, right?

Code: Select all
00 00 00 00 02 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00
01 00 00 00 02 00 02 00 02 00 00 00 03 00 00 00
02 00 00 00 03 00 02 00 04 00 00 00 05 00 00 00

You'll find that the 5th column of the footer, or the 5th value of each line of the footer, is either a 02 or a 03. Change them all to 03.

This will make transparent parts of the dinosaur skins look better. Just try it out yourself if you have skins with transparent parts/holes/alpha channels ;)

Screenshot by DPJWei/EchoGreen

The 5th hex value in each footer line seems to control whether a dinosaur's skin is rendered only visible from the outside of the model, or visible from both inside and outside the model. If it's 02, the skin is only visible from the outside, and if it's 03, the skin is rendered visible from both sides of the "model wall".

Umm, I don't know the footer of the TML, and how do I find it easily? I don't want ugly holes.

Umm, I need an answer, because the holes on some of the skins look really shoot.
