If my old mag slash killzone clan gets involved then we have a pretty cool looking logo, perhaps I would add the ARx clan tags to it as well.

If that doesnt work out, then I will look into finding a cool Ajax the greater type figure. Or possibly add venom to the car. Who knows.

I am excited that this is a option even.

First, I'm making classic skins. That's a definite. I'll turn death warrant into the car from Death Race. Roadboat into thumper, and also turn road boat into yellow jacket. I don't know. I just will want to have a lot of options.! XD

Why does "coustom" anything always degrade to penis jokes?

Pink Crimsion Fury and purple Kamikaze all the way.

I have a idea for Road Kill. Paint'em like a classic mustang with the racing stripes. or like a charger with a black hood, red body and red stripe down the trunk. Yeah I stick to the classics.

Post by Rusty Shackleford on 02/06/12 at 14:39:08
On my to-do list for skins, provided I can pull it off:

NYPD, Chicago PD skins for Outlaw

Spectre-stripes skin for Kamikaze

Some retro-NASCAR skins for Roadboat, likely Kyle Petty's STP car.

WWII Sherman-style skin for Warthog, also possibly a German Panzer one too.

Honorable mention goes to an Ecto-1 skin for Meatwagon, but that one is so obvious that I'm just going to wait for someone else to do it really well, because I'm sure a ton of people are going to do it better than I could.


By the way...did anyone else notice the skin on Meatwagon for the TM website is different from the version in the demo? The demo one seems to have a broken up 'x' symbol whereas the other one has a standard medical cross. I wonder if it has something to do with copyright issues or something like that, because it sounds kinda familiar.

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Seventy_X_Seven on 02/06/12 at 14:40:53
The Toxic Tooth one is interesting. I wasn't sure how much of the vehicle you were going to be able to skin, I assumed it would just be the body. But clearly you can also custom design the head of the Sweet Tooth truck so that also means you can with the rat rocket as well.

Though I'm going to assume again the gurney is off limits.

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Mr.SLaM on 02/06/12 at 16:28:11
If I had to make a skin it would just have all of my favorite album cover art. But as my own design I'd make a blacked out Meat-Wagon, or maybe a ghost-busters look?
There's so many different options I'm sure we'll see some wicked stuff.

I asked Jaffe on Twitter for release date confirmation, he wouldn't give it to me.  However, he did confirm that you can make the skins on PC/MAC/or the PS3.  Not sure how true that is, but there you go.

Hopefully we can make them before the game hits!

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Euphoria on 02/08/12 at 21:26:29
Definitely going to have to make Crimson Fury into the Durango95 from Clockwork Orange

Death Warrant is going to have to become Eleanor from the Gone in Sixty Seconds remake.

Roadkill needs a Boss 302 stripe kit/Also a starsky and hutch slight redesign.

I've gotta Definitely mess with Axle and give him some crazy spinning turbine wheels.

Junkyard Dog is getting skinned as Cooters Garage from Dukes of Hazard.

Gonna invert the colors on darkside (Lightside?)

Gonna make the Reaper look like hes riding a giant seahorse. <-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=skCV2L0c6K0

Roadboat is going to become Don Juan.

Spectre looks exactly like an R8, Gonna hafta modify it to be an R35 GTR

Vermin is getting the Tye-Dye 70's shag treatment with a teardrop window. Awww yeah.

Going to edit my face onto Sweet Tooths bobblehead. (Along with my employees for clan wars). Definitely also going to make Basozuko style sweet tooth, as well as self induced rust sweet tooth. Basically, I cant come up with any better paint scheme for Sweet Tooth than filthy polka-dots. <--- Thats one i'll probably only skin during clan play.

Obviously the Ecto-1 has already been mentioned. :)


Kids, Stay away from LSD or end up crazy as me.

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Psycho Se7eN on 02/08/12 at 21:40:59
I really hope Talon gets a nice skin, he looks too ordinary right now.

Make him look like warhawk or something Twisted metal like.


I also already have my concept done for Dark Tooth. Cannot wait to load him up.

Do not think the tools are officially released. If they are I dont know where they are. But, basically the tool allows you to upload your images and place them on a car where you want on the TM site. I already have a drawn concept ready and the images ready as well for mine.

Darktooth Finally!

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Ripzsaur on 02/08/12 at 22:28:11
Well... I've been brainstorming for a while.
I think I'm going to try and transform roadboat into classic outlaw.
I'm going to turn Death Warrant into a police patrol car, and probably a yellow jacket remix (also out of RoadBoat.)
I'm really a little low on creative juices right now.
I might turn Death Warrant into the main characters car in Death Race.
And Kamikaze into Spectre.
I really am looking at a lot of classic revamps, probably adding my own twists and making color schemes fit in with the game. (brightness, shades etc;)
In really hoping that they turn out well though.
Any suggestions on what I could do to make the classics a little bit more original?

On that note, wouldnt it be cool to have the ability to no only change colors but replace the sound effects too? Like for Darkside, instead of the horn sound effect, a Heavy Darth Vader breathing sound instead

Awesome.

Title: Re: Coustom Skins

I wanna turn Vermin into Dale Gribble's pest control van from King of the Hill. I have no idea why, though..

Roadboat into Yellow Jacket..

Death Warrant into Frankenstein from Death Race..

Sweet Tooth into the ice cream truck from Coal Chamber's self-titled debut album cover, and from the video for "Loco".

Maybe reverse all the reds and whites from Meat Wagon..

Outlaw = SWAT van.

I'm sure I'll come up with more over time.

I'd change Vermins 3 blind mice warning music to something else, just to have a sense of my own idea.

I'd like it if you could change the modeling of it. Like... Change Vermins mouse and the character on the back. I'm finding it difficult to imagine a custom car skin with those two included. I REALLY want to find a way to put a police car back on the front of Darkside.... Nostalgia more or less.

Depending on how easy the tool is to use, I plan on creating a car that looks as much as Crazy 8 TMB as possible.  Love the color/design.  It's a shame I won't be able to make the electric barbs come out of the sides, but it should still look reasonable if done well enough.

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Ripzsaur on 02/09/12 at 15:23:10
I ha the same idea but couldn't pick which car to use the skin for.... So I scratched that idea. What car were you planning on skinning for Crazy 8's?
Roadboat maybe.?

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Taurus on 02/10/12 at 12:38:31
I have experience skinning for Unreal Tournament and use to skin for Interstate 82 many ages ago.  So I just gasmed when I heard the amazing news of custom skins.

I will probably make classic skins since I have the ripped textures from TM1 and TM2.

Sweet Tooth, Darkside, Crimson Fury, and Road Kill should be fairly easy.

Probably will create Roadboat into TM1 Yellow Jacket.

Title: Re: Coustom Skins
Post by Visage on 02/10/12 at 12:42:23
Don't know how much you can change, but I'd like to do TM2 Dark Tooth, especially putting the U-SCREAM license plate and making the headlights look like eyes.

If it's even remotely possible, someone should totally make a skin that has a series of pictures encircling the front of the tires. So when he moves, he has an animation on his wheels. :P

But that's just a crazy-ass thought of mine. Move on.

That'd be awesome, but the surface area on any tire would only be big enough to fit a few frames which would be a very very short animation.

Exactly what I was thinking. I figure maybe you could have classic Sweet Tooth's head with flickering flames, or something simple like that.

Seeing as how we're not sure if the functionality exists, or the fact I'm not even sure how big Axel's tires are and if they could accomodate that, though, I don't really see it happening.

Other than that, making Kamikaze/Specter (which is it anyways?) look more like the one from either TM1 or 2.
Definitely do an Ecto-1 for Meat Wagon.
Come up with some awesome, dark skin for Shadow.

We should have a TMA skin for every car, though.

EDIT: Make Juggernaut/Darkside look like the main truck from Maximum Overdrive:

Sweet Tooth: Dark tooth or a regular ice cream truck.
Meat Wagon: make it look like Shadow, or viceversa. Just for the hell of it.
Roadkill: General Lee.
Talon: Police helicopter.
Road boat: a taxi.

I know, I'm not really creative.

Funny thing when I heard about the skin customization. My little brother made a Sweet Tooth boss way back when Head-On was alive and kicking that consisted of Sweet Tooth's head as a semi truck pulling a trailer and oh you know where this is fuckin' going.

Any chance I get, I'll try to get Juggernaut skinned as Semi-Sweet Tooth for him. He'll get a big kick out of it. We were actually talking about it a while back, and he said it would be funny if the trailer had "YOU'RE NEXT" etched on the side for any poor sap to read as he drives pass.

this is why they should have kept the demo up until release date, so they could iron out these online kinks.

My audio has went out twice, both for 1-2 seconds at a time.  Happened a few hours in, didn't happen the last few hours.

It's becoming pretty comical how often Sony keeps telling Jaffe "Yeah, it'll be up later today, sometime in the morning, 3 AM, tomorrow for sure". Haha!

Not a big deal though, should be up any time now. I've waited months for modding kits / level editors / map tools for other games, so this is a relatively short-lived drama.

I tried accessing the redeem promo and now its saying 'Service is currently undergoing maintenance'.

I suppose that's somewhat of a good sign since it makes that there is progress being made. I also prefer to see something like that than to be told that the code is 'invalid' or 'already used'.

Very anxious to apply the codes though.

look at the layers, go down to skins, create a new psd with the same dimensions, drag the layer named "Preacher" or "Dollface" to the new PSD, and see they had skins hidden 8-)
i just noticed it with the Kamikaze skin, idk if it does it with anyother skins. i will upload them tho ;)

Hi guys, my first post here.  I've been a lurker on here on and off for a few years and have been playing since TM2.  Anyways, I decided to make an account and post because I don't understand how to download skins from the website exactly.  I add them to my garage, but I can't add them to the game.  It seems like I have to publish and then activate them and then it works, but I'm afraid by doing that I'm adding a duplicate to the website.  When I then look at the skin in the game it's either way darker than it appeared on the website, or on the case of the excellent Dark Tooth skin that was just posted, it is way too dark and the texture are incorrectly mapped all over the car.  What am I doing wrong?

That is what I am trying to figure out.
I mapped them out properly and they are not coming out correct at all.
It's oddly layering over some other detail.. ugh

So we cannot create a skin for Roadboat???

And the skins are coming out dark as hell and Jaffe's advice is "compensate by making them much brighter" until we get it fixed." --- okay so once its fixed all of our uploaded skins are going to be almost white?

WTF!!!

week 1 is a disaster and from what Jaffe said a lot of people are claimed to have sold their games.. this is really sad. I would have rather them released it 1 or 2 months later than to put this on the shelves half-baked. The average gamer doesn't stay up to date on Jaffe's blog so the word-of-mouth on this game's online functionality and all of the other issues is going to cripple sales.

very unfortunate.

he's the directer...of course its his fault to some degree. You're telling me that the team was oblivious pre-launch to the laundry list of issues that is NOW piling up?!!!?? If they were oblivious then the QA and testing of this game was very very poor. I mean from some of these common complaints it seems like ESP has never made a game with PSN functionality at all. Case&point this game could have had a much flawless release if they had waited a month or so instead of scrambling around putting out unfinished features in a few days time.

Fuck you i've read his blogs. Dont get pissy at me I didn't create these problems...read my updated post above.

and i'm not one of the fairweather players who will just sell the game at the first sign of problems...i'm hanging in with it, and this title needs as many supporters/players as it can hold on to right now.

Well for one they haven't made a game with PSN functionality, this is there first game that's on the PS3 and that uses PSN. Two, hes not one programming everything, he just gives the ideas and such. So why don't you shut up until you actually look something up before opening up your mouth.  8-) Deal with it.

if his job was just to "give ideas a such" he wouldn't be online nightly trying to find each specific glitch to help the team can come up with an accurate diagnosis.  He's pulling individual people on twitter each night who are having common issues to figure out wtf is going on. I was one of those people and was in a room with him for a bit last night attempting to show him one of my issues. fuck you. deal with it.  8-)

Jaffe is pissed about all of this! --and i'm saying 1 month of pure play testing the retail copy on the actual servers used for the retail copy would have made a difference IMO.

i agree with this post for the most part.

the only problem (and why Jaffe is so stressed over these issues) is they presented the product as something and then failed to deliver what was promised to buyers. Sure, the online works (sometimes), and the skin customization is active (but incomplete and flawed)...

its obviously not what Jaffe planned, envisioned, or advertised, and i just because we are fans of TM and of Jaffe's work doesn't mean we should accept less than what we were told we would get if we bought this game.

One thing to remember is Jaffe wanted more time, and they got it. BUT, as the release date approached, he & Scott STILL wanted more time (but knew they couldn't get it). I believe Sony was just ready for the game to be shipped and not spend any more money in the development phase.

Sure, Jaffe would probably be the first to admit they made some mistakes, like perhaps a bigger beta, but at least he's laying it all out there and doing his best to correct the problems.

yeah thats the beauty of social networking is now we have a day-to-day update from the man himself instead of being in the dark and thinking we bought a flawed copy or something.

unfortunately your casual gamer will probably just move on to another game and just think TM is shit -- or GAH-BIDGE.

You obviously need to calm the fuck down and get some information before spouting off, which is all you see to do around here. For one, the major problem with the game - the online MP issues - aren't on Jaffe's end, that's Sony's problem. It's an issue he has nothing to do with and has no control over, but it's effecting his game.. of course he's stressed out. Also, the skins also seem to be on Sony's side, and all he could/can tell us is what they tell him. Cut the man some fucking slack here. The issues on his end aren't THAT fucking bad, especially when considering the facts here.

Also, this isn't ESP's first PSN outing, so get your shit straight before you go into another temper tantrum.

Thank god for this addition to the game.

It will make people take a second look at it after they fix the servers. But even cooler it reminds me of the old Unreal Tournament days where you would join a game and see different shit in every room.

It will be so nice after so many years playing the game to see something new in a match once in awhile. Every multiplayer game needs this.

So am I to understand that the supremely dark skins are a glitch on the game's end? To me that's actually kind of good news, 'cause that means I HAVEN'T been fucking up on my 3000 attempts to get Warthog's damn color to come out right. I figured it might have had something to do with me turning on/off the wrong layers or something like an ignorant fool, or saving the file wrong (I'm stuck with GIMP). Now the site is telling me my garage is empty despite having a good 3 or 4 skins made in there...

Oh well, fuck it. If it's a problem on their end, I'm willing to wait until they get it ironed out. It does feel as if I've been doing a lot of that lately, though.

Hey all, new to the boards...long time fan of twisted metal though. I work in graphic design and have been messing around a bit with the skin editor in PSD. I have made a few but this is my only final one I'm comfortable sharing...

Simon Says......CRUSH!!!!! ;P . When the wheel is actually spinning it just looks like a rainbow of death. From the regular camera angle the "boots" your character fits into are red and green. I have one that is blue and yellow as well.

EDIT: After writing the post and visiting my garage...it is empty. I spent a lot of time doing this and now its gone. Not like I can't re-upload it, but WTF. Oh well, here is my Axel baselayer. He looked GREAT ingame last night.

I had this issue last night...it's kinda common sense but I didn't realize it and no one told me. When you go to your garage, select your vehicle then Skin # (1 2 3 4 5), go down to Skins. It should be called Custom 1 (or it was in mine) even though I renamed it.

It is published...go to your garage ingame and hit "refresh downloadable skins at the bottom of the garage. Afterwards, pick a vehicle/skin# (1 2 3 4 5) , the go down to Skins It should be labeled custom.

EDIT: you can publish skins without adding them to your garage. Make sure you add it to your garage.

I checked it out in game after I posted that, and besides the backwards 5 on one side, it looks awesome, I didn't realize the windows would be transparent, so it gives the driver/gunner a nice red glow.

I had that happen to me this morning...it's just the website, they should still be in your game. After I made another design and uploaded it (even though it said my garage was empty on the site initially) I could see my first designs. It did take FOREVER to publish though.

By rude cars i think he means "Basic Cable TV Rude.".

Like if you've seen it in South Park then it's probably just on the very edge of being okay.

Though it's difficult to tell. Cause you can draw an animated butt and show it on TV all day long. But a full real life human butt is different for some reason. I guess cause it can either be way more disgusting or arousing then a drawing.

That always confuses me when i see schinlders list on network TV though. How do they know people aren't watching that with the same rude thoughts? Stupid stupid stupid. (i know it's a historical film but come on why can they show all that horrible stuff but not let people say shit or see boobies?)

I guess basically Censorship is always up to an individual so there is no clear line of what is okay and what isn't. You just have to try and be as tasteful as possible in your work. Even if it isn't tasteful work.

I think if you are on the edge about if something is okay or not. Draw it in a cartoony style. Then it probably won't get taken down. But there is still a good chance that someones personal taste chimes in over the "standard" and you end up getting screwed.

That is the sad truth of the system. But it's better to have it then to not have it.





I was thinking about making Axels wheels look like anuses. I don't think anyone would get it unless they thought about it for a minute heh.

But this is America. You can draw someone disemboweled on your car and decapitated kitten head on top of Sweet Tooth. But if you draw boobs with nipples you are crossing the line somehow.





i just hope they aren't banning or suspending PSN accounts over rude skins. They should just remove them and leave it at that. Punishing people for their sense of humor is messed up. But censoring your own game is fine, i mean it is their game after all.

.

I heard its ass backwards in Europe. It's okay to show nudity (as long as its "controlled" (idk, my british friend says that, can another British fellow or European clarify this so I can yell at my friends some more.) But violence is looked down upon. But, I agree, Americas standards are awkward. Something we DON'T want to happen is okay. But something that is going or WILL happen is unacceptable.

Its ass backwards in every other country. USA is the only country that seriously shuns sex and the human body, yet glorifies violence.

Here decapitations are okay for 13 year old kids to see. But Breasts are not okay for them to see. Because they might become sexually aroused by them. It's all because of the religious and military agenda this country has been under since it's creation.

Killing is okay to show because our nation was founded on murdering the shit out of people. They don't want people to be timid of afraid of violence. Otherwise you won't get 18 year old kids signing up to go die in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In other countries they are anti violence because they aren't fighting any wars. As far as the human body goes. In countries that aren't dominated by religion. The human body is seen as a natural thing.

Though running around streaking still gets you a fine. They don't punish TV stations for showing animated boobs or having a naked person on the show.

On the same end. The countries that are totally fine with the human form and nudity. They are the same ones that censor the hell out of violent videogames and prevent their release in their countries.

So it's a really weird catch 22. Either fantasy violence is okay. Or fantasy/real boobs are okay.

In most countries cursing on TV is still something that gets censored though. I think it's because no matter what culture you are in. Yo momma so ugly jokes will still cause people to want to murder you.





One thing is true. Every country wants to control the media.

The really scary part about the debate is that people compare the habit formed by men watching pornography. to the habits formed by gamers for playing violent videogames.

Which is simply not fair. We are built to fuck. Our dicks get hard and it feels good when stuff touches it. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what to do with that.

Same thing goes for killing. If a fly lands on your arm the first reaction most people have its to smash it. it's our own protective instinct. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the easiest way to silence someone is to murder them. We learn that with insects as children.

Saying that the media is bringing up all these sexual and violent urges in people is just plain fucking retarded.

Anyways i'm way of topic but it's worth mentioning.

Cause people overseas might be a little confused that it's okay to have all this gorey flesh and blood. But a picture of a hand drawn butt is banned.

Hey man thanks I appreciate the compliment!!!...I want to do some other skins, but I had to start with Axel because of the amount of detail you can put around the driver...it's amazing, you can change the color of the wires...change the boots and gloves, the headrest, the gun barrels...the hardest part is recognizing what they are on the template and coloring accordingly.

When I tried to do that it looked really bad. Even the textures that I didn't mess with (Death Warrants fenders and other metal parts) looked really pixelated and junky. I just couldn't make it bright enough.

Thanks, but feel free! I love the whole idea of community skins...really makes each game you go into more unique. I'm not going to PW protect when they do enable it.


Haha only if I can use speed racer! Great design BTW...haven't checked out that template but did you have any luck spinning the 5?

you can't spin the five because there is only 1 door texture, and it's mirrored to show on both sides (David Jaffe said this in his preview video of the customizer), but go ahead and use it, it looks awesome in game (the browser doesn't do it any justice).

Hey man thanks I appreciate the compliment!!!...I want to do some other skins, but I had to start with Axel because of the amount of detail you can put around the driver...it's amazing, you can change the color of the wires...change the boots and gloves, the headrest, the gun barrels...the hardest part is recognizing what they are on the template and coloring accordingly. You can see on the template I left some parts uncolored...couldn't figure out what they were/didn't see any difference when I added color there.


I'm wondering if a spiral design will work, or if the wheels move to fast to make it visually appealing.  Sort of like this:



Absolutely don't want to overstep, but if you're taking request's I'd love to see a medieval take on Axel, all decked out in wood like a trebucket/wooden shield design.  Also some sort of crash dummy version, with the cash dummy logos would be hilarious, especially seeing as one of his special is a ram.

BTW, it seems there's no way to texture the wheels and some lights on some cars.  Is Axels wheel treads off limit too?

One of the default skins for Axel (it's either on the disc or comes when you dl Axel from the PS Store) is called Hypno, and it's that exact thing.  Oh, and you can color the stripes.

I was thinking about doing a black/white spiral design similar to the colored one I did except all black and white with a spiral on the outside like the one you pictured. I will think about the medieval design, I agree some wooden shields on each side would be sweet.

I really like the crash test idea, I may very well take that on, although I did see one made called "nuke"... http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147485179

I am not sure about other vehicles wheels, but there is definitely not a spot on that template for Axels wheel treads.

I don't know if this has been posted yet, but if you look around in the download templates provided on the site there are actually a decent amount of hidden skin textures within the file. Skins for Dolls, Clowns, Skulls, and Holy Men alternates can be found by removing layers of select vehicles. I've posted all I can find to my account "KERE-FREE." I did find out however you can only upload three skins per car so a few that had an extra Dolls skin were omitted. Feel free to upload your own if this becomes a problem.

"Clowns" Talon


"Dolls" Darkside


"Skulls" Roadkill


"Holy Men" Crimson Fury

Very nice! I haven't browsed this thread much yet.

A few quick questions. I haven't messed with any skins so far. Is there any way to test a skin without publishing it publicly? Can you delete them?

Also, is there any way to make the dude with the net on the back of Vermin transparent?

Thanks.

To answer your questions..

Sadly you cant test them without publishing them. I really hate that.. I wish there was a private only way of seeing them on the ps3.

I havent tested making the net guy transparent.. but as far as I know there is a problem with overlayering custom skins in the game.. this is why many skins have come out very dark.

After making the skins and publishing them from your computer.. you have to click "Activate" in your garage. the ones active should be red highlighted. I think you can only activate 3 per car type.. and have to deactivate one activate another.

Thanks to everyone creating skins in this thread, especially Taurus!  They all look fantastic, especially the classic TM1, TM2 skins.  

It definitely seems that the limit is 3 active at a time per car on the site.  Still pretty awesome that they released this editor for free when other games charge their most rabid fans a ton for crappy weapon/player skins (Gears 3 most notably).  It was cool seeing some of these designs in online matches already.

I believe the red windows for my Mach 5 skin for Crimson Fury are visible, they give the interior an extremely badass glow.

Of course, there's a chance that the windows were already red, but I didn't notice the red until I tested my M5.

Yup, pretty sure it "stains" transparent layers.  They're still see through windows, but you get a good tint from adding color.

I'm wondering how dark black might tint windows.  Time to make a secret service Outlaw.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but I just thought I'd ask; is it just me, or is Warthog ESPECIALLY broken? I tried turning up the brightness ridiculously high on a skin just to see how it'd look, and he was still covered in these odd black squares like a rash.

Other question: What is painted AO?! A lot of the skins have this layer; some have it on by default and others don't. I've been debating whether it's SUPPOSED to be on to add sufficient grunge, or whether it's just a visual guide to give an idea of what kind of grunge the ingame model/lighting will add (and therefore turning it on would make the model too grungy). Someone please put this question to rest for me.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by Deadpig38 on 02/21/12 at 08:00:06
Painted Ao must be some extra shadowing, on meat wagon its turned on 70% opacity and ill turn it down to 20%, and so far my skins haven't looked so dark in game.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by DrTrouserPlank on 02/21/12 at 08:49:58
I'm going to ask just in case I'm missing something obvious.

Using Photoshop, let's use Sweet tooth's skin as the example. If I want to recolour the clown head on the missile, is the only way to do this basically to magic lasso the head, new layer via copy and then do a colour overlay or whatever I fancy doing?

Basically is the only way to edit pieces of bodywork etc to lasso them? As the elements that make up the car are all combined into one layer I don't see any other option.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by DARKSIDE on 02/21/12 at 09:22:40
They are many, many layers.  They make it pretty easy actually.

First attempt, didn't come out too terrible I don't think.  Based off the Titans colors from Zeta Gundam.

Sweet tooth doesn't have many layers (none that are useful anyway)

He is split basically into 2 layers. All bodywork, fenders and clown head all in one layer (ie nothing individually selectable) and his spotted pattern lying underneath that in another layer.

Would have made sense to provide the pieces that make up his bodywork all on individual layers so that they could be edited without having to lasso everything you want to edit.

I think Kamikaze comes out real dark. Outlaw and Vermin come out a bit darker than they probably should. Warthog is almost definitely screwed up beyond just being way too dark. Sweet Tooth and Roadkill also came out too dark for me. I don't know if that's what you meant by "gross", but that's been my experience. Crimson Fury, Darkside and Shadow seem to come out fine. Haven't tested any others.

So can anybody definitively say whether the painted AO layer should be left on or off?

I just had 1996 flashbacks when I looked at your TM1 Darkside.

That thing looks like an exact replica.  I haven't seen the real one in a very long time, but goddamn that looks awesome.  Great job.

I'm trying to make an outlaw skin, but having trouble.  Is he one of the cars that is buggered like SweetTooth?

I can't seem to get anything to show up on some of his textured areas, which as the bumpers.  Even though they're in texture file.  Seems like a layer of dark crude is getting applied over it and not sure how to turn it off.

This happened with my custom colors...you can compare the internet pic to the ingame pic and see a big difference, I made sure and got EVERY panel, but there is still quite a bit of black like you said, around the bumpers.

I'm getting the same issue with GIMP and CS5.  It appears the" grunge layer" isn't being applied correctly, and instead of a thin see through layer, it's almost all black.  The in game editor does it fine, but creating a car through the web / template causes it to break.  

This is causing the "detail" map to be very dark, and makes some of the "dirty" cars really, really dark.  There's a police Roadkill texture, for instance, that the white is more silver / grey on the doors.  All detail is lost on the fenders.

Further, I removed the grunge completely and the game still applies it, and just as dark.  Apparently we really don't have control over the entire model texture?

For my outlaw, you can't do anything with the bumpers of the car because it's pure to splotchy black from what on the original model is some see through dirt and grime.

I sure hope they fix this, and don't just "make things lighter".  It's not a case of things being dark, as it is a layers being applied completely wrong.  Check out the bumpers and fender on a style change in game, then compare it to a custom option.  One shows the texture correctly, the other is a mess of crud.

This has probably already been done by someone, but do you think you could make a Vigilante 8 Beezwax skin for Meat Wagon? I'd do it myself, but I've yet to come to grips with the editor. That, and I lack the talent to pull it off most likely.

I'd also like to see a TM2 Minion skin for Warthog. Even if I don't have him yet.

TM2 minion skin for warthog wont work.. :-/ The skinner only allows editing of the car.. even if I upload from the template.. its sucks.

Yeah it doesnt show up in the game probably due to the skinning error.. which is very related to the darkening that people are describing.  I see it as a "layering burn" effect. It is shadowing the main standard skin over the custom skins which is making them look terrible.

Whats the deal with the .pngs?  Do they retain the layers of the PSD?

Seems like there's not option to upload the PSD's, and wondering if maybe that's part of the problem.  It's not getting the layers, so screwing up and putting the old skin attributes over the new, and messing up.

Beezwax was one of my favorite cars from V8, but I don't know about Vermin being relative to him at all. Vermin is a van, Beezwax is a pick-up with a camper on the back. If you make that one work, you truly would be a genius.

I really wanted to make a Pizza Planet truck, which is also a truck with a camper, so I went with Vermin as well. The rocket on top helped, but I don't think the camper translates that well to a van...

This would definitely be a suitable beezwax if you just added a yellow roof section over the would be driver compartment and also added a yellow door post (maybe with welded washers holding the door closed for TM effect).   Basically, i think you have a winning combo here but just more yellow on the roof and for the post and slide the truck cap windows more to the rear.  How did the back look?

I think a giant "Kick-me" style 989 Studios logo should go on the back of a darkside skin or maybe vermin or maybe even a faster ride for use as the HUNTED in hunted mode. Sure would be a fun thing to shoot at.  Not so much to play as.  


Maybe a Starsky & Hutch paint job for Roadkill?

AANNND Since i'm asking for a TON,  Can you put oldschool Darkside on Juggernaut aswell? Havent seen a decent Juggernaut skin yet.

Roadboat's skin is currently available when you try to download Roadkill's. Or was it Death Warrants? All I know is the skins editor is seriously fucked up when it comes to those three, but you can get the skin. 'Course you can't test it out, but I've already done a rough draft of the skin I want for him in preparation for when they add Roadboat. The way his skin is mapped out is pretty simple too.

**Possible spoiler**





A couple of strange skin related thoughts: Has anyone considered that Sophie Kane is Toxic Tooth? the laughing death has all the similar features.

Has anyone tried to make a skin of Mr. Grims fathers truck that was involved in the accident, or Dollfaces Sports car that also got wrecked? These would be two skins i cant help but wonder why they havent been made. I know, grims dads truck appears to be a military 6X6 when his younger self is aiming the handgun at him. But i think either a juggernaut or an outlaw based skin would do it.

glad someone is having same problem as me. I've made a few skins that look great when i upload to twistedmetal.com but then in the game the default skin is still there and you can barely see the custom skin underneath the default one.

Here is my inner genius at work concerning roadboat..

Alright so in the photoshop you can look at the history of a file.. upon investigation I discovered what roadboat's file is actually called.. "Teranova"

Now.. you if you notice under the skinner when you go to make a skin the name of the file downloaded is the same name listed under the URL..

So with a bit of magic..

Brilliant!  Wonder what happens when you publish it.  Does it go to digital heaven or will it appear in your garage once it's customizable again?

Either way we at least have the preview now.  Thanks  8-)

I tried fiddling with the my garage url, putting "teranova" and see if I could see the test RB skin I made but I couldn't. So, I tried browsing and clicked on my skin, it already had "Activate" button ready. I clicked on it, and took me to my garage. Just need to get on TM and see if it worked or not.

I hope they hurry up and get this fixed. I don't see the point in doing any more skins until they get the darkening issue resolved.

Well, my method worked and my skin showed up but it is dark as expected. But, yeah I agree, they need to get this fixed ASAP.

Something I thought of the other day - has anyone considered making a Meat Wagon skin that makes him look more like a proper ambulance?  By that I mean with a medical cross and with other markings like the word "AMBULANCE" being mirrored across the hood or roof.  This isn't a request, I'm just surprised that no one has done anything like that yet.

One thing I think is a little strange is that the skins I have created on some vehicles (Outlaw, Kamikaze) come out fine in game but others (Death Warrant, Sweet Tooth) are the ones that come out black.

Finally, Roadboat! Now all they need to do is fix that darkness. Awesome job finding Roadboat early by the way, Taurus.

I wanted to do a retro style NASCAR, but the problem is that there's only one side that's mirrored, so I'm limited to 0's and 8's. I guess that explains why the default skin has an 8 on it.

Actually, Meat Wagon already has both of those in it's layers, but for some reason they aren't visible in the original model, so making this would be nothing more than a check of two layers, which anyone could do in GIMP or some other tool capable of editing layers.

They're actually not all fine.  Take a look at the metal on outlaw and his bumpers, on custom skins is black plague crude.  Compare it to the ingame options and it's dented / scrapped / muddy metal.

The problem is the "grunge" layer that goes over the texture.  In game paint shop does it correctly (it's mostly see thru and transparent and light in color allowing the texture below to show, but as "dirty").  When we use custom cars anything that was slightly opaque in that grunge layer comes out pure black.  Anything not comes out transparent.  There's no gradient used.

Car's like tooth just have more dirt / grime then the others, so they end up having more black error put over their whole texture, making them dark.  Other cars used only a little, so look not as bad.  But like said you can see the issue with even outlaw and meatwagon by switching back and forth from an ingame picked on to a custom picked one.

I hope they fix the real problem.  I've been trying to change Outlaws bumpers and license plate to no avail since the black layer of grime is put over it, obscuring any new bumper textures.

I just used the info that Jironobou gave me about Meat Wagon to make a slightly improved look.  All of this skin was already in the editor, I just added back in all hidden layers and then mirrored the word "ambulance" on the front like it would be for an actual ambulance.  I haven't tested it in game yet so I'm not sure how good it looks.

Ah, ok. Thanks for the info. I'll have to take a closer look at my custom Outlaw next time I am in game. The in-game skin on my Kamikaze looks good (screenshot posted a few posts back) but, that's probably only because it is a mostly black skin that I am using anyway (the Punisher).

The template downloaded under Roadboat is actually roadkill, i think roadboat is under roadkill. Look at the license plate if in doubt, roadboats plate says ro-boat.


Does anyone know how to remove rust and scarring from the skins? trying to turn roadkill into a showroom worthy beast.

Wait, so which layer are you talking about for the grunge? The "Painted AO" layer or the other one that has most of the stuff on it? I asked about that a while ago but didn't really get any conclusive answers at all. If you can gimme an example of what the grunge layer would be on any particular car's skin that'd be helpful and I'd really appreciate it.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by TyrantII on 02/25/12 at 21:32:44
leave Painted AO and Wire, off.

There are some transparencies in the "Base Texture" too, but they seem to be ignored via the editor and re-added in game.  So I wouldn't worry about the grunge in the base texture, not much we can do about that yet.

Does anyone else have the problem of deleting a skin in your garage and trying to re-download it and it says that it is already in your garage?

Its a problem for me as well.  Hell now I cant even get any skin to migrate from the server to game.  Getting annoyed with it but I'll wait.  Love this game too much!   :)

All I want is a skin for Vermin with "Free Candy" spraypainted on both sides. An obvious nod to this:



Anyone kind enough to make this happen?

I saw one of those. Just a lot different and more detailed than that.

However, the skins feature seem to be down. Can't upload mine now.

Made a skin for Outlaw based on TM2 Hammerhead, but I'm not nuts about how it turned out... It's my least favorite of the skin's I've done. At this point, though, I've lost interest too much to bother and do anything about it.  ::)

ESP should have not made the skins server specific.  It would have been better to have our skins downloadable to the console then to the game.   :(

I wished they went toward what Unreal Tournament did with thumbdrive installs.  I guess they are doing this to regulate inappropriate skins.

Also I noticed that the custom music player is faulty.. music is too loud. Had to lower the music volume to 10-15 percent to even hear the game's sound effects.

BTW.. your 2 face skin is awesome.

Its a big ripped up dude, supposed to be atlas, except I cut out the globe which is why the arm is moving up. I just wanted something that looked like a warrior, like Ajax was.

Hoping once I download it to the car it gets far more noticeable.

They do look bright in the menu, but they look better in a match with the dynamic lighting.  They have some weird red artifacting too; looks like bright red rust eating holes in the skins but I can live with it.  Looks a lot better than the dark skins.

When it says your custom ride has been build what do you click on ?? Click on publish your final design

You set the attributes etc....

Then click on publish again , after that its says congrats you have succesfully saved your custom ride

Therse is two choice given to you underneath that click on "CLICK HERE to visit your garage".You will see all the cars you customized click on activate

After doing all of the above log back in it should take a few more seconds then the actual waiting time to log in go to options custom paint and you should see a loading screen with the ride you created appearing

Try deleting your cache and cookies in your web browser and see if it helps.

Looks like the dark issue is mostly fixed.  Did a quick test, and while there still is black overlay in outlaw in some places, it's 1000% better.  



I assume the other cars have been fixed similarly as well.

Not sure about you guys, but as long as this gets fixed completely within a couple of weeks, I'm really not fussing about it. I'm just glad the option is being implemented at all, it's really a nice touch to the game, and I'm sure it's difficult to manage... though I am kind of bothered that this apparently wasn't tested out hardly at all before the game was released. Not sure if they just had no time or if it's one of those things they forgot and put in the back seat like they did with network issues.

I just know it'll be badass when all the kinks are resolved; and I'm content for the moment with the customizations they give in the game. Gonna see if I can get it to work tonight when I get home.

Also, does anyone have any ideas for Sweet Tooth, or a design they'd like to see me put on it specifically (or maybe Junkyard Dog)? I have photoshop and a fair amount of free time.

Otherwise, looks like we have to re-upload templates.

Also, does anyone have any ideas for Sweet Tooth, or a design they'd like to see me put on it specifically (or maybe Junkyard Dog)? I have photoshop and a fair amount of free time.


How about for Sweet Tooth creating a high-res remake of his TM2 look?  Have the ice cream cones on the sides, the clown head on the back, and the stitches going down the forehead of the clown head on the top of the truck.  I think if it's done correctly it could be one of the more badass ST skins.

I'm still waiting on the Mario Tooth skin. When in truck form, it'll probably look like a mess of blue and red. But, when transformed, he looks like our Italian plumber.

If the skins are fixed (has anyone confirmed this?), is it necessary for us to re-upload all the of the skins we've made? It wouldn't bother me too much to do so, but I don't want to do it if I don't have to.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by STEALTH-SNIPER on 02/27/12 at 15:28:12
This is what I've determined:
-If a skin was in your garage prior to the fix, it will still look dark in game (I tried deactivating, editing, etc.  None of which seemed to do anything)
-If you add a skin to your garage now, even if it was posted prior to the fix, it should look fine.  I'm a bit upset about this because some of the skins I've saved will be really difficult to find right now due to the lack of a search function, but I'm sure that will be added in time.

My skins are still showing up dark... But, like Stealth-Sniper said, they were already in my garage, so I'm gonna re-upload them and hope they download again.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by TyrantII on 02/27/12 at 16:47:34
Ok, so you don't have to re-upload them.  But you do have to "rebuild" them through the site editor.  This can currently be done by "editing" your original and I figured out a roundabout way to do so without having to re-upload a template. (in my case trying to fix others creations)

Easiest way to do so is to first bookmark your original creations.  Then clear out your garage.

Then clear your cookies and cache of your web browser (since there's an error that won't let you re-add things u deleted unless you do this)

Then, go to your bookmarks and re-add them all to your garage.

Once re-added DO NOT PUBLISH THEM YET.  Go into details first and the 4th button is "edit this in design in customizer".  This will pull in your original skin creation into the editor.  Decal it up as wanted and save / publish it and it should fix it.

As said the black is not 100% gone, but there's very, very little left.  I just did this with my ghostbuster2  MW and it worked.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by TyrantII on 02/27/12 at 16:59:06
Ok, take it back.

You don't have to delete them from your garage.  I had to, but it was an issue that cleared up when I cleared my cache/cookies.

You can do the same thing above be deactivating them, then go into their description, and click the edit / customize there.  That will copy the old one but pull the template into a new instance.  Edit it and publish that and now you're good.

It will overwrite your original dark skin version though.  So if you like the dark look on some skins, don't do it this way.

Played a bit more, and got some bad news.

Sweettooth is still a mess.  Some skins, like before, are better than others, but the overlying issues still persists.  There black soot all over tooth, some along the bottom and metal bumpers on outlaw, and now only a very tiny amount on MW.  But, it's still there.  Tooth is still pretty much buggered.  The others are somewhat acceptable.

You can compare between any old skins you have activated, new ones, and the in game defaults.  To me it looks like they removed most of the autoapplied/broken grunge layer on most of the cars, but some still have issues like tooth.

In the in game shop the grunge comes up as semi-transparent and usually is orange rust, or light gray over the original texture.  In both the old and new uploads I'd say 75% of what should be light and transparent comes out completely black.  They've removed most of it on some cars, but the issue is still there it seems.  

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by Rusty Shackleford on 02/27/12 at 19:29:08
It's not perfect, but it's a hell of a lot better. At this point I'm willing to actually use my skins, so that's not bad. I don't know if it's just me, though, but do they seem a little too bright/high contrast to anyone else? I think I'm gonna have to dull my stuff down in the future.

Oh, and as a side note, Warthog's skin is still messed up as well. Not dark, but he's still covered in weird black squares.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by TyrantII on 02/27/12 at 20:05:34
Yup, it looks like they boosted the brightness too, even though that really wasn't the issue.  So you might have to tone it down a few clicks in GIMP.

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by Euphoria on 02/28/12 at 00:38:57
If its any help, HERE is what I did. Sweet Tooth would only load 2 of the 3 skins i had selected. I could deactivate and no skin would work except for the broken 2. It was aggravating as hell.   I deleted all 4 of the skins i had (which took forever due to the site). Only to realize there is a tab at the end of the line of boxes where skins go that says "show more" or something along those lines. Clicked it, and found a whole slew of skins i had used that werent the ones i created. Had to DELETE all those. Then i cleared internet history with all files.   Then MAGICLY it worked.


One last thing i did, i moved the file into a different library that contained my skins i wanted to upload, I know the logic should have been erased by my cookie deletion, but it still seemed to make a difference.        Good luck and try not to break anything each time it takes a full minute to delete one version of the skin for every time it was uploaded.

Not working for me. Been showing the original skin options around. Hope everyone likes the lack of creativity on my skins, because I certainly don't.

This was easily one of my favorite things about TMPS3 and it really sucks when it doesn't work. Lost my own Death Warrant skin I made too. Really really sucks!

So, the only way to fix all of this is to remove each and every one of them and then start anew, right? I guess I'll do that when they patch in an effective search engine for these things. Should be this week, last I heard.

The bug has to do with the game save data, imo.  Before all my problems, whatever vehicle I SAVED and EXITED with (custom skins included) would load the next time I booted the game.  Now the problem:  REGARDLESS of what vehicle I exit and save with, it will ALWAYS default to Death Warrant.  The previous changes that I made never saved and didnt load.

So I deleted my save file and booted the game to have a new save file created....SAME PROBLEM.

Edit:  So when changes are made on the website (server) they are not getting (loading) to the save data in game.  This is where the bug is....stuck in purgatory between the server and game.

Search for them, then click on the "add to my garage" button.

Once you have done that, go to your garage and upload them and then activate them so you can go to the PS3 and refresh and then select them.

As it is now, nothing seems to work for me so I've pretty much stopped trying.

Here's the Brimstone skin for Shadow I've been working on for a while now.  It's basically complete, the only thing I'm not sure of is the hearse top.  I wanted to keep it dark so you can still make out the general El Camino shape of Brimstone, so I made it like a roof tile pattern because Preacher would use it as a "mobile church."



Basically I included the stained glass windows, a cross on the side evocative of the original's, and turned the car's "armor" from steel to wood.  I made the hood ornament wood and continued the pattern up the hood to try and recreate the battering ram Brimstone had.  Completed that with chains to hold it on.  Overall I'm happy with how it looks side by side with the original.

I may change the hearse top because I'm still not sure if it works.  I'll upload the final product when the skins actually work properly for me again.

Ok, so all my skins disappeared from the game yesterday. They're all activated in my garage, but even the ones that have been in-game for a long time un-messed with are gone.

So the big question is: Leave it alone and wait, or delete and re-upload all my stuff? I don't want to deal with that crap for like the 3rd time if I don't need to, but I don't want to be sitting on my hands if this is an error that's on my side.

Anybody else have/fix this problem?

Still waiting for my skins to get working.
I was able to remove that stuck vermin skin by readding (adding the URL with the number given to the custom skin) and then deleting it from the copy.

NOTE:  I WILL NOT BE SAVING AT THE VEHICLE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN (paint shop) IN GAME.  Its buggy as shit and I have a hunch that overwriting the save from this screen is contributing to the disappearance of skins. :-?

Nothing is working still. I believe it's a problem with my PSN username. Guess I will have to wait.

Taurus, the problem is with your PSN ID.  I was having all the same issues as you.  Still am.   What I did was login under my euro account (diff psn id) and start from scratch after the website fix.  With the new gamesave I have been able to get all my skins working again.  It had been 5 days without skins which deflated the experience.  Its the only work-around that I can suggest.  

The only thing is I will have to rank up again under my new PSN ID but I look at that as an additional challenge.  Hopefully I will be able to use my main PSN ID soon.  >:(

Either that or wait for a fix.  ::)

NOTE: I WILL NOT BE SAVING AT THE VEHICLE CUSTOMIZATION SCREEN IN GAME.  It appears that overwriting saves from this screen is buggy as shit.  I think its contributing to the disappearance of skins at some point in the process. :-?

Based on my experience I would recommend that you leave it alone.  It appears that once you lose all skins the website is rendered useless for that particular PSN ID.  A fix or using a different PSN ID on your PS3 are the only means of using skins as it stands now unless someone has found another formula that I'm unaware of.  >:(

I redeemed the NOS code.

Can anyone tell me the steps to get the skins working please?
Published and activated them in the garage but so far there aren't appearing in game?

Anyone else got these promo skins working yet?

Including the Priest skin?

Another PSN ID is out of the question, no way I'm unlocking Warthog again. Hopefully this thing will get entirely worked out...

In the mean time, I made a skin for Meat Wagon because 99.9% of MW skins are Ecto-1's. I never even pick him, but what the hell.

So a few things I have tried..


  • Deleted EVERYTHING from my garage.. (Didn't work)
  • Cleared cache, tried different browser, different computer (Didn't work)
  • Created a 2nd Account.. (This worked with the 2nd account.. but primary account doesn't work)
  • Backup saved data with Playstation Plus and delete it from PS3 (Didn't work and restored original save)


Only answer I can give is that there is obvious problem with their servers and my PSN username.  The 2nd account I made actually downloaded the skins.

I wish there was a way to contact someone to report this problem.  Possibly it might be fixed in time.

Just as I suspected.  Server to game save bug.  NOW, if you've managed to somehow elude this issue all I can say is DO NOT MANUALLY SAVE THE GAME IN PAINTSHOP.  It's screws things up and throws the server for a loop.  Stupid ass bug.   >:(

Possible.. but sadly it is very difficult to rip certain PS1 titles.
TM 1 & 2 can be ripped easily because some of the files can be opened as raw files but TMSB's textures are deeply coded.  I've tried many ways of getting the textures but run into graphical glitches and poor color palettes.

I think we're just gonna have to flood jaffe when he's back from his mini-vaca on twitter.

I'm also not completely happy with the hotfix and website issues.  There's still issues with roadboat/roadkill, ect and Tooth and Warts still have GFX issues.  Also notice random issues on outlaw.

Question, have you guys been saving your PNG's in a special way?  Would converting to 256 color pallets be wise?  Maybe thats whats causing the random GFX issues since the update on my skins.

So I just got through reading this whole thread (ok maybe I didn't "read" the whole thing, mostly I just skimmed the pics and clicked on links) but I gotta say that pretty much everything Taurus does is awesome.

And I really like the Brimstone Shadow skin that TerraNova did but I couldn't find it on the TM website and he didn't have a link  :'(

But anyway I've made a couple skins myself but most of them were experiments to see how the whole thing worked.

So I just got through reading this whole thread (ok maybe I didn't "read" the whole thing, mostly I just skimmed the pics and clicked on links) but I gotta say that pretty much everything Taurus does is awesome.

And I really like the Brimstone Shadow skin that TerraNova did but I couldn't find it on the TM website and he didn't have a link  :'(

But anyway I've made a couple skins myself but most of them were experiments to see how the whole thing worked.


Sorry, I'll post a link when they fix the skin issues and I know mine work again.  I kind of want to be the first to use it.  I'd be sad if I saw someone playing as it online before I could.

Awesome Two-Face skin.

Anyone want to make a Riddler one?

And for those with trouble downloading skins, try using the crappy PSN browser. For some lame reason that's the only browser that works for me. Can't seem to login on any other browser.

So what the hell is up with the skins? Are they working for anyone? Disabled, broken?

Haven't had working skins in several days now.

Sadly, No.  I'm in the same boat. Once they are gone it seems that they may not return.  All ESP needs to do is FIX THE "REFRESH DOWNLOADABLE SKINS" button and ensure that it communicates with the server properly.   :P

Awesome. Not too picky with which vehicle. I think a small car, long car, or van type could work. If it looks like any of the following I'll be pretty happy.

Sweet Tart.. that's a brilliant name for a fem-tooth vehicle. I dig.

There aren't any fitting cars for the Riddler skin, at least based on the second pic from the bottom. It'd be a free-for-all on what car you used. Personally, I'd go with Vermin and created Matthew Lesko's van (please tell me at least one person knows what I'm talking about).

Yeah, the question mark man.


Any vehicle with a riddler skin will due though. There's also a Riddler van. Vermin fits the bill for that one. Maybe even ST if you could put a ? where STs head is lol.http://www.flickr.com/photos/dannybolhuis/5246702260/&http://www.flickr.com/photos/schemacoma/4750156748/

I don't think that Jaffe could legally use it, even if you told him it was cool. Or at least that's my understanding of shit like. But then again, several of my ideas that I used in my fanfics can found in TM2012. It might not be official, but it's still a really cool feeling, and Sweet Tart is definitely a cool name for her, or any female ST iteration.

I'm gonna address this theory one last time. Has anyone noticed the striking similarities between the Toxic Tooth skin and the Sophie mask?  Toxic Tooth being one of the three skins Jaffe did and released for the NOS cans?   Why is everyone considering that its gonna be super Hello-Kitty style of a name?  Toxic Tooth was released huh? a New mask is forged at the end sequence that resembles the truck? There is an extra characters skin added in bonus content and a new contestent forged at the end of the game.  Coincidence and just some random rendition of ST?

That being said, atleast Sugar Kane has a connotation of being oxymoronic (Pleasant Hell) which is fitting in TM.. Because Sweet Tooths name has nothing to do with the fact that hes sweet.  Maybe we can hope shes a dentist and call her Cavity Tooth. (Joking).   The name should be crafted as either a joke or a representation of their wicked traits.  Not because "She's hawt yo press pawse son! Thats Bangin Tittie Tooth." Sorry to get off base here, But the similarities between that skin and that character are just WAY TO striking.

No.  Toxic Tooth is based off one of the "TM Apocalypse" concept pieces.  It was the gas mask version of ST.  It even appears on the side of Toxic Tooth.

Not bad, not bad at all, though the question mark is facing the wrong direction.
I know I requested it, but I ended up making a Death Warrant Riddler Mobile this morning that came out very good. You can DL it @  http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147534399 (when PSN is up again)

The Riddler skin doesn't look as good on long cars for some reason. I made one for Shadow that looks your Meat Wagon & also didn't like it very much, but the riddler skin I made for DW is awesome to me. Might look good on a van or truck too, but the question marks come out odd looking on the long cars.
Since we got a couple Batman themed cars with your Two-Face & my Riddler - maybe it's time we do some X-Men themed vehicles? I was thinking of doing a Gambit skin. I'm also down for more Batman villain skins.

I'd turn the yellow a little more rusty on the rear bumper, I'd like to  black out the roof and the hood and fenders and add a syringe Outline in font color to the hood with the needle facing the spot where a hood ornament would be. Or maybe a slew of syringes facing out to the sides?  I love the busy texture behind his mask and on the trunk. Also the font, and the graphic. Wicked nice job.  (I just want to feel like im injecting fear with turbo ram.   A cool graphic might be a syringe outline with the words Turbo Fear.)

I'm wondering if this might be connected to Jaffe talking about how they're "rebuilding" the old skins.  Maybe they're taking parts of the database down and fixing them if need be, then putting them back up.

Shouldn't Sid Burn be Kamikaze or Crimson Fury? I'd put my money on Kami since she has a flame thrower and is sort of related of Spectre, who is another Corvette. Crimson goes past sports car into supercar anyway. Kamikaze would also make a good Rattler, especially with her EMP. Hmm...

Oh, and to not double post, here's a rusted up version of Juggernaut. It's meant to be evocative of the truck from Duel, but there's not a ton you can do with that.

I'd turn the yellow a little more rusty on the rear bumper, I'd like to  black out the roof and the hood and fenders and add a syringe Outline in font color to the hood with the needle facing the spot where a hood ornament would be. Or maybe a slew of syringes facing out to the sides?  I love the busy texture behind his mask and on the trunk. Also the font, and the graphic. Wicked nice job.  (I just want to feel like im injecting fear with turbo ram.   A cool graphic might be a syringe outline with the words Turbo Fear.)

   Good news..we figured out the problem.  After you create or copy over 50+ skins or so, there is a problem with the manifest file that is preventing vehicles from being downloaded into the game.  Currently, we are woking on a fix and I will keep this discussion board posted when the Customizer is fully functional.  Apologize for the delays.  Adam, Playstation Project Manager

I assume this means 50+ total over the course of time since the feature came out? Because as of right now I've only got 15 or so in my garage, but I'm having major issues with them loading into the game. I've had to delete and re-upload the many of the same skins multiple times, so I can see that my total could have easily gone over 50 (haven't counted).

Oh well, I'm gonna keep cranking out skins even if I can't use them right now. Here's a race car livery Crimson

Post by TyrantII on 03/06/12 at 13:31:38
That's what I assumed.  I also hope it is the only issue.

I only had 15-16 in my garage, but I have added, deleted, reedited and republished quite a few.  So that would have probably put me around 50 the other day when I added about 15 more.

I know testing alone (since the webpage isn't 100% on texture use and placement) was 10-12 builds.

Little bit more from Adam over at the TM forums:


Quote:
yes.. this is correct.  Those skins are going to come back as I understand the fix.  We are still waiting on a timeframe when it will be working for everyone again.  However, do not delete vehicles from your garage if you want to keep them.  They should all be coming back in game when the batch is deployed.



FYI... I have an account where this problem is happening too.  (too many skins created and then I get no response back from the game when I try to bring my activated skin in game)  So, i am hoping that i do not loose any vehicles either.



Also, we are working on adding pagination and search to the Gallery section so you can access all the skins ever created by any users in the Customizer.



Will try to keep you updated on when the problem is resolved.



Thks for your patience.

That's exactly what I was wanting. And I actually made a Shadow Limo skin but its probably not exactly what you're wanting. This one is more of me making my own theme. I would link it but the paint shop keeps saying that PSN is down for maintenance.

My brother was/is doing a Slick Clyde for Outlaw. If nobody else does one  soon I'll let you know how that one turns out. I've definitely seen a Dave Vermin, (V81) Houston Roadkill, and Convoy Darkside. I wonder who would make a good Strider buggy though... or Boogie. I wish this game had some small-ish more compact cars in its roster. A hatchback of some sort would be awesome.

I think DW would make the best Strider (none of the cars in the game look really close to the Strider) mostly because it is semi compact and it has a turret special. For Boogie I definitely say kami.

I'm not surprised if someone got fired.
took over a week until the skinner became available
they messed up with the templates for 2 of the cars..
roadnoat wasn't available.
Cars coming out too dark..
site search and browsing is terrible..
When skins were fixed the skins still had black spots or were terribly too bright

Same here, I was kinda surprised when the TM site first went live and it's.... flash.  So, no one with apple and a standard browser can access it.  And, flash, what is this 1999?

Some really simple things were taking forever to do, and they weren't getting done on time.

Seems ESP / Sony picked a pretty poor 3rd party website contractor to do what needed to be done.

Hell, the stats page still isn't finished giving raw data values instead of real information and trophy support on that page is non-functional.

Update from adam:


Quote:
Good news.. i complained enough today that I had them manually make the fix to my account so that could confirm what the script is that they need to run to fix everyone with this issue of 50+ published skins.  The problem which I proved to them today is that even deleted skins are not "unpublished"!  So i had them manually unpublish all my deleted skins and now I can download skins into game again!


Therefore, there are three fixes that I am pushing them to deploy ASAP (and I am pushing them hard to get this done fast)



1) run a script that "unpublishes" every deleted skin in a persons garage.  If you have deleted a skin then you did not want it anyways so you would not loose a valuable design.  You just need to clean out your garage and unpublish your deleted skins, and they need to run a script to clean up everyone's garage of "deleted published" skins.



2)  Create an unpublish button that allows you to keep your garage populated with saved skins that have been deactivated down to the "save" status.  Unpublish button will allow users to have a large amount of skins in their garage without it becoming unusuable to pull skins in game.



3) Add a message box at the top of the Garage page which explains this 50+ issue in the hopes of preventing users from "locking up their garage".



Will keep you posted when we get the Customizer fixed for this issue.  Once again, apologize for the frustration, but we will get the customizer working 100% correctly soon.


Man, they picked a shitty web team eh?

Sounds to me that when we "delete" skins, they are only made non-visible.  

To really delete them you need to un-publish them, and there's currently no option to do so.  So, you basically have phantom skins sitting in your profile you can't see, the site thinks they're published, causing the issues.

Yeah, they are downloading just fine for me...I finished up that tooth yesterday night, had to publish and re-publish multiple times to get the text and logo right in game so went through that process a couple of times with no problems.

and just so everybody else doesn't have to do it, the window closest to the front of the car is actually the further back window upside down, and the window at the back is also sideways, and turns into the window on the side of the truck closest to the driver. It may have been explained before it's just a bitch to do it so many times so thought I could help someone out. Picture attached...I believe the white is also accurate to about the area you can use.

Haven't logged into my garage in over a week and the following message is there....


Unlimited number of vehicles can be created for your garage. 50 published vehicles are allowed at any given time and only 3 active vehicles per vehicle model are permitted. Only your active vehicles will appear in-game.

Is this new?

Yup, and it's along the lines of what Adam from the forums said was in store.  Hopefully the not downloading issue is next.

I really hope that they get the skins fixed soon. I miss playing with the skins that I've created or downloaded from others. The worst thing about this is I had all of them before the 1.04 patch. I downloaded it and turned off my console to go to sleep and when I went on the next day all my skins wouldn't show up in game. And I tried deleting them and re-creating/downloading then but it says that they're already in my garage(for the downloaded ones).

What I am worried about is the skin itself is counting publishing.
I say this because I never published 50 skins.. and even another account I made stopped downloading to the ps3 and I had made about 6 skins on it.

Example/Theory-

Darktooth Skin I made.. I published it.. (Publish Count: 1)
I share the Darktooth skin on forums.. (Publish Count: 7)
2 hours later.. (Publish count: 30)
24 hours later (Publish count: 80)
My account is now locked.. because the skin has been republished by other users.  I suspect there is a publish count tied into the separate skins you make and that publish number also counts on your account.

Remember how you see that "Publish" button when you add the skin to your garage that someone made?  I believe that might also be the problem.  I don't know why they just cant add it into their garage?

Now, my skins are all gone too, and I was just setting some last night!  So, sometime between now and then, they all freaking vanished.

In my garage, they all say active too, wtf?

EDIT:


I FIXED IT!!  I just downloaded another random skin (actually the stained glass tooth, because it's awesome), published it, activated it, and it redownloaded all of my other skins!  So, if this ever happens to you, just download another one, and it should bring them all back.

A while back I think a few people were discussing a Beeswax skin for Vermin. I couldn't get that to work for the life of me, so I gave it a shot with Shadow. It's a bit of an odd choice for Beeswax, but I don't think it came out that bad.

I could try tweaking the camper a little later, but as it is I can't even test it in the game so I'll leave it alone.

I tried your trick it didn't work for me so I'm just going to remake them and hope they actually download to my console. For the ones I've downloaded from others I'm either going to have to create them myself(which isn't too bad I guess) or just do without until they skin creator gets fixed.

Awesome. If this hadn't happened eventually, somebody would have had to answer for it  :P
I was actually gonna do one, but then slapped the MFP livery on Outlaw instead 'cause I thought it fit his theme.

http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147524163

Anyway, I decided to do something a little experimental. I wanted to make a skin that had a hand sketched looked to it, so I drew it on paper, scanned it and slapped it on Death Warrant. Looks a bit odd in places, but I think the effect came out okay.

They were activated but they didn't carry over onto my console when I downloaded a car so I just deleted everything I had in my garage. Which now that the delete/unpublish problem still hasn't been fixed was kinda a bad idea.

I wanted to make the G-6155 from Spyhunter, but for the life of me I couldn't get a consistent grasp on how it should look. Eventually I opted to slap some stripes on Crimson since since a lot of the pictures depict a paint scheme like that.

http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147543994

But then I felt the whole thing was pretty boring/bad, and Crimson's contours wreaked havoc on the stripes. So then I said 'fuck it' and just made one based on what the sprite looks like ingame for Kami.

http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147544156

Still nothing amazing, but at least I like it better than the first. I might redo the first one... I really had to do this, though, especially for the sake of driving into the back of Juggsy.

Here's the Brimstone skin for Shadow I've been working on for a while now.  It's basically complete, the only thing I'm not sure of is the hearse top.  I wanted to keep it dark so you can still make out the general El Camino shape of Brimstone, so I made it like a roof tile pattern because Preacher would use it as a "mobile church."



Basically I included the stained glass windows, a cross on the side evocative of the original's, and turned the car's "armor" from steel to wood.  I made the hood ornament wood and continued the pattern up the hood to try and recreate the battering ram Brimstone had.  Completed that with chains to hold it on.  Overall I'm happy with how it looks side by side with the original.

I may change the hearse top because I'm still not sure if it works.  I'll upload the final product when the skins actually work properly for me again.


Whoa..  I love this!  Still do NOT understand why Brimstone is not in the new TM!   >:(

Hopefully that means that means that they're fixing the f'ing issue with them not downloading to the console and also the issue of deleting them but having a "ghost" copy of said skin still in your garage

As for Taurus, really hoping that your skins get 100% percent fixed because your classics are probably my favorites. Tried to DL yellow jacket skin for roadboat just to find out that it was deleted. That's my favorite so far and I wish I had the talent to recreate it.

Re: Moderators- (SKINS NOT DOWNLOADING)

Hi,



If you cannot get a skin into your garage, unfortunately, it was created before one of our fixes and it is no longer available to bring into the garage.  Sorry about this.. just the hard truth.  You can see those skins, but unless they are already in garage then you cant copy them into your garage.



1) In terms of fixing the garage so skins download in game, we have deployed a fix that will unpublish a vehicle on delete.  This is good since whenever you delete a skin now it no longer remains published and "jams up" the download into game.



2) Unfortunately, We still need to run a script that will unpublish your previously deleted skins.  Hope to have this completed as soon as possible.  These deleted but "published" skins reside only in our servers so we gotta get them "cleaned" out.  I will be honest that we miscalculated that deleted but published skins would "jam things up"



3)  With regard to the pagination issue of website not matching up with game and thus causing your garage to not work after you create 9 skins, we have a solution for this problem and this too should be completed this upcoming week.  This pagination issue is for some reason only affecting some accounts, not all account.  we are trying to figure this out, but most likely it is on the game side and hard to diagnose at this point.  Regardless, I think we have a way to correct pagination so it is not a problem for any accounts.



Therefore, I would delete the skins you do not want and see if that brings your total of active or saved skins under the 50 number so you can get the skins to be downloaded in game.  Hopefully, you are not an account with a pagination problem and this solution will get your Customizer working again.



I know it seems we are slow, but we are working to figure out these problems and get fixes deployed out to production servers asap.  But, in the meantime, if "2 out of 3 aint bad" then I guess "1 out of 3 sucks" so you probably still are ****** at us.   All I can say is that I promise you we will have the Customizer fully functional so you can get the most out of this aspect of the game.  I am hoping we are "rock solid" by the end of this upcoming week.



Regards,



Adam, Sony Playstation Project Manager

That's something else, though that's a common problem as well. What I'm talking about is where you click publish, it refreshes the site, and nothing has changed, with the skin still in an unpublished state.

Seriously, WTf?Any Explaination?This Will be the 3rd time this has happened,Usually when I make the Highest rating area. So Im sure its due to some1/people downloading it and "publishing" it. The first two times ended up with me Deleting the file (both files are the same address so deleting 1 deletes both  :-[ ).Also the Bottom cars arent duplicates,just redone versions of Cars Iv'e Yet to Delete. I'd figure 'third times the charm' so maybe I wouldn't have to delete it but rather solve the problem...any ideas TMA family?  :-/ Quite sick of this online fiasco all together

The theory i have is that they are being duplicated because other people are adding those skins.  I had duplication happen also.  I believe in the code its making you think you have published a skin over and over again per person. sometime it even shows you those publishments.  My skins.. are still not downloading.

Lost count. My garage glitched out during the first week and I couldn't add anything after that. I even made my own skin and couldn't add it. Probably for almost a month. Today when I fired it up a few random skins loaded up in the paint shop by themselves.

I think I made a post around here. The error I was getting was "Skin Already Copied To Garage" but my garage was empty. All those skins loaded up today somehow...... :o

Most of the skins I got are from Tauraus LOL! Some are supposedly deleted when you click on them, shows a big red circle ban sign, however, when I added them to the garage they worked perfectly fine.

I'm sporting TM1 and TM2 Roadkills, TM1 DS, TM2 DarkTooth, and TMB RoadKill. Those classics look awesome. I was looking around for a Reaper skin but I didn't like any. I like the TM2 Grimm best, but I don't see how thats possible, seeing it had a side car...

Currently I cannot 'publish' anything.  other user skins and my own cannot be published.. however I can activate skins that are published.

I'm going to check in a moment to see if the skins uploaded to my ps3. I was on it around 12-1pm EST and non were uploading.
My temp 2nd account still doesn't upload to the ps3 when I last checked it around 1:30pm EST.

EDIT: 2:44pm EST
Skins are still not being uploaded to my ps3..  >:(

I'm in almost the exact same boat, except mine stopped working a little after they did the brightness correction to the skins... It seems like since then it's gone from bad to worse. First the skins would sometimes download to the PS3, then never. Now I haven't even been able to publish.

You also can not click on a username and see all their published skins.  The lock down a skin feature too never made it in.

Doesn't matter either way since you can't publish at all now.

tried all the tricks I found and still can not get my skins to work

I hear you.  You did the work for it.  You want the credit for it, not someone who just downloaded it.  It's the same thing for every artist.  It would be like buying the Mona Lisa off Da Vinci and your friend sees it in your house and wants to buy it, and you claim it as your own.

Hehe pretty much...I am an artist so I am very Fickle about signing/letting it be known I am the creator of my works because people will hop on it and claim it as their own any chance they get...The Gamer-Tag in ST customs is the same as an Artists Signature  8-)

Roger that.  I noticed that and when I did I got really pissed off!  It only lends itself to the confusion of the skin feature in general.  It's a fucking mess.  I really wish the "new skin team" *if that even exists* would just not tease us and fix the fucking problem.  I want to grab my AR15 and shoot the one's that are responsible for this!  >:(

Sad its a 2nd team that needed to try and fix it.
Haven't check the boards in the last 3 hours.. but 'adam' an scea employee said back on February 24 that they were going to fix it.   It has been a month.
the online play is atleast working for me now. About 4 days ago we last heard from him.

I saw people using my skins online. Which I am glad but also pissed off that I can't use mine..  just wrong.  And I'm turned off from even playing and wanting to make more.  I have this amazing Bollywood sweet tooth that I'm putting together.  Has tassels and classic Indian Bollywood poster art graffiti on it.

'Hi,

Thks for feedback.  We are aware of this problem.  There was a deployment yesterday that failed.  We are still on getting everything fully functional.

More soon.. sorry we did not solve the probs.  The addition of publish in garage being broken is a new problem that cropped up from this deployment.  It is driving me nuts!

The game producer is pushing the issue hard so I am confident we will have to things completely functional sooner rather than later.

My apologies.

Yeah you are right.. I can be a bit too.. "forgiving"
We were promised a game with online play and custom skins.. its been over a month and it took forever to get online play working and the skins aren't working for many people. Sadly this hurts the Twisted Metal series.. we probably wont see another twisted Metal in a long time.

What I wrote to Adam-

'Thanks for apologizing Adam.
Frankly I believe Eat Sleep and Play should have had this working and prepared beforehand.. and tested.
I noticed the skins can be browsed on the site now. Though some are already deleted and look to be still published.

Anyway. Good luck with the fix!

I have to say that I'm one of the many who downloaded your skins because they are fucking awesome and I know how you feel about people using your shit and you cant use them.

Totally agree.  Good idea.  I do have a few skins I'll be posting when they are downloading for me again.  Part of it is me being selfish and wanting to play with my skins first.  Part of it is me not knowing if they'll look right if they get brightened up.  

Among those is the Brimstone Shadow skin, a Military Police outlaw, and a D.A.R.E. program outlaw, which was requested by a friend.


I'm also a big fan of that Sophie Kane meatwagon there.  I like the vibe it carries with her being a mental patient in that hospital and all.

Also, from David Jaffe's twitter.

Ok cool hopefully they get it right and no more issues appear in the future. Also does anyone know if the site fix went live? There was a post in the skins not working thread on the actual site from Adam saying that there was  to be a fix going live late last night/today

I just tried publishing it and all it did was refresh the page so for now all I can do is wait until they fix that issue. I will let you know when it's published. Thank you for liking my creation.

I added quite a few skins now. Couldn't get them all published because of the glitch with the system where it doesn't delete them, but all is cool though.

Got a Tron Reaper.
Hello Kitty Kamikaze
Have a Tron Talon.
Wendy's Meat Wagon
Simon Says Axel.
RK in the form of Thumper and Spectre (throwback edition)
Pedo Bear Vermin (Tron Green one too, as well as Mystery Van).
Batmobile Crimson Fury, the futuristic one as well as that Red Custom Hero guy that has a blue background and stuff and also Speed Racer
Coca-Cola Darkside.

Though, I'm bummed I couldn't get that Brimstone Roadboat as well. Stupid SKINS glitch!

Continuing with my old Simon Says 'color' theme I've been working on a Roadkill design...I'm not quite done with the hood/roof/tweaking but looks pretty sweet in-game so far. One thing I am definitely not happy with is the roof, I think it looks stupid ingame and need to change it.

I'm also sorry I haven't been responding to PM requests for  more color designs, but I have been so swamped lately...kinda making these as I learn and play each vehicle.







http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147555640

I have also read through this thread and noticed almost everyone is experiencing problems with the whole custom skin thing, and other than the website slowdowns I haven't really had any. Thought I would share what I do just as a reference if anyone wants to try it and see if it works.

-If I am having problems with publishing or with the website I always switch to Safari, seems to work.
-Only have >5 custom skins in my garage at the same time, more than 5 and I can't publish any more? (This is across all vehicles, I only have custom skins on axel, outlaw, roadkill, and ST. One each)
-I do not "refresh downloadable skins", I publish/activate THEN turn the game on. When I go to my paint shop, the skins are already there.  

Hope this helps...

Skins fixed for me finally, but there might still be some weirdness phantom published skins causing issues.


Try this:  Deactivate and publish everything. (DO NOT delete though).

Then try publishing and activating one to see if it works.  If so, slowly keep doing so.  

At least some will work and that's how I got it to work!  I'm going to use this to step up to 50 active/published and see if I fall below that # before it glitches... if so it probably means I have invisible cars still in my garage.

When you do publish there's also options to post the car publicly and to allow share.

So if you want to keep it for yourself do not check share.  If you want to keep the link a secret to share with a few people don't check post publicly and manually send the link over to friends.  

Title: Re: Custom Skins
Post by TyrantII on 04/03/12 at 16:38:18
Yup, I was right.  They haven't run that script to delete the phantoms yet.  So do the above and work your way up to find your magic number.

Mine was 27 active/published.  If I published a 28th and tried to switch skins it would not work.  unpublished that 28th and now it works again.

Anyways, at least you'll get most of them working again.

Dude this has always been like this....I hate that this happens...but I figured, for a long time, that as long as the rating/popularity goes to the original(and the original is shown in those ares), then I wouldnt care...That isnt the case any more after this latest website update...All my cars ratings have been fucking reset(meaning I lost Highest rated/most added and credit for shit loads of copies of my designs)....call me vain or what ever,but i Like my 5*'s 8-)

I'm not too worried about it...I really just make these skins for fun, for myself to enjoy as well as anyone who wants to use them. I never had any problems with that Simon Says Axel I created a while ago (check out most added and highest rated under Axel, Simon has been there for weeks/months!) changing ownership. Anyway, the point is feel free to use any of them, that's why I made them public. When I see it in game i'll know who made it :)

That Outlaw and Sweet Tooth kinda have a "chicken bus" feel to them, I like. I was actually thinking about making a fully chicken bus themed ST, but it's hard to be motivated when I can't use or see any of my skins ingame.

I feel the same way about the republishing thing, too. I don't mind if it glitches and says somebody else published my stuff, since I just make it for the sake of making it. I saw my Beeswax Shadow under a different publisher the other day. I'm far more bothered by not being able to use custom skins at all.

Does anybody have one that works?  Preferably for Shadow.


I've enjoyed browsing through all the custom skins online -- I still think it's amazing that this was made possible on the new game.  There's a lot of time and talent put into a lot of these......

Finally found one!  :D

Just to let you know it allowed me to get up to 27 skins.  If I publish just one more it screws it up and won't download any new ones or allow old ones to be removed / reactivated.  Go back to 27 and all is fine.

So I have 23 phantom skins that I can't see, but that are technically still published.

If someone had 50 published, and deleted all their skins before the fix, my guess is they still can;t get it to work at all until their phantom skins are cleared out.

Hmmm thats odd. Well the Crazy 8 and Roadkill skin can be found in this thread around pages 18-28 and for the Brimstone skin, you could attempt to create you own. All I did was go on google and typed in roof shingles and covered the back of shadow with the picture I found. Then I did the same thing for the stain glass windshield. It's actually a pretty simple skin to make

But then again, most of the custom skins I tried applying were mostly fancy designs, not something like "TM2 Sweet Tooth skin" or something representational.

I had made this TM2 Sweet Tooth skin.
http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147543244

I also tagged it as HD since I've seen some crappy TM2 sprites slapped on and it looked butt ugly. I've seen a few other people throw my link around here.

I pretty much took the original textures, blew them up, and redrew/photoshopped them to the proper resolution.

I could never get the skin to display properly in the game and so I stopped there...

I did plan on making quite a few classic skins, but since I couldn't get my first one working I didn't bother proceeding.

Haven't played TM since about the end of March. I figured I'd come back if the skins ever worked properly. I've seen some alright skins here and there, but I still think I could do better.

You can get a police choppers here; http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147504478 & http://twistedmetal.com/community/?task=vehicledetail&vid=147502177. Most Talon skins suck. There used to be a good TMB WarHawk skin for Talon but I can't find it anymore.

I did make a Riddler skin for Talon if you want.

I gave up on his. I requested to see it, then he replied hours later asking who I was. I told him who i was. He replied hours later and asked me why I want to see it and how I would use it. I basically dont give a shit anymore... too much work for a fucking skin.

Anyone up for making a quick skin? I'd do it, but laziness hinders me.

It's simple: Mark Sweet Tooth in thick yellow and back stripes, so he looks like a bee/wasp/buzzing pest. This would be especially hilarious to see flying around in Sweet Bot mode, methinks.

So do you guys make individual skins for each of your vehicles or do you have a uniform livery that you guys go for?

I like keeping mine pretty uniform.

Here's my Death Warrant. I know it looks really crappy compared to most of the other designs, but hell, I like it.

Post by Klobber the Klown on 08/21/12 at 17:40:21
For that black paint, perhaps try adding noise for the specular map. This might create more a sparkly/metallic paint. If you use Maya software then it has a car paint shader already. I say try experimenting with adjusting the eccentricity or the specmap. Also, probably take down the reflectivity, because those cars don't look to reflective. I don't know if this answers your question.
