Uniform Modding

So, a lot of people have been telling me they want to mod uniforms, yet they have no clue on where to start. So, being Christmas and all, I thought I would create a thread that would take you through the step by step process on how I create my uniforms.

I am in no way a Photoshop wizard and am no way a computer genius, so this will be a basic tutorial that will tell an easy and quick way to make and import unis in MVP 05.

If any other uni modders out there want to chime in with tips (KC or thespungo), or anything that I could do different, feel free. I'm sure there are even quicker ways than mine to make quality uniforms.

This tutorial will go step by step, so that any questions can be answered on the spot and it will go at a leisurely pace. In fact, you will be creating your uni along with mine. Hopefully at the very end of this tutorial, you will have made your first uniform!

The first step will probably be up on 12/26 and the entire tutorial will probably last 4-7 days. Once you get the hang of this method, you should be bustin out unis in less than 30 minutes.

***The only thing you need before we get started is a uniform idea and a copy of Photoshop. The first step will include what programs you need to download.

Well, that's all I have to say for now, and let me know if you want to participate!

And admins, can this be stickied? It will only need to be up for about a week.

102: Templates

The main template we will be working with is:

KC's Templates (this wouldnt be possible without him)

For catchers gear, etc:

fizzjob's temps 1

fizzjob's temps 2

*** note: for fizzjob's temps, they need to be stretched to 2x. we will mainly be using kc's templates in the tutorial though and once you can handle those, you should be able to mod the catchers gear temps on your own.

sorry about that geolink, you could always go out and buy photoshop with your christmas money :biglaff:

on another note, you might still be able to do it with your other program. the reason im spreading this out is so people dont fall behind. i am thinking about starting it tomorrow instead of the 26th though.

103: Organization

Well, since the first step is really easy, ill go ahead and finish it.

Well organized folders can and will save you a lot of time when uniform modding, and it's always nice to have the main folders on your desktop. As you can see, I have a shortcut to MVP 2005, a folder for the current uni that I'm working on, and a created MLB 07 Uniform folder that holds important things as show below.

In MLB 07 Uniform:

Templates

Programs (EA Graph and nfshtool)

Finished unis (you are not there yet)

If you already have these things downloaded, just move them into this set up you see below:

I know that MERF, MERK, MSLV refer to manager uniforms, but whose templates are you using? Is it something that you created or is it from thespungo's accessories? And also, what does unibig represent? Thanks a lot and take care.
