First you need to extract the wad.client file and select the file you want to modify.
Editing the texture
After that go to the image file you want to modify and import it into your image editor. For me it’s Photoshop.
Now we can repaint the textures.
IWhen done we save it as .dds dxt1. DXT1 means we don’t have a transparent channel. If you want to have a transparent texture choose DXT5 (you can use it for any texture basically).
Or Save it as .png and convert it with the XnConvert Tool to .dds
Lower resolution textures
Now we need to add also 2x_ and 4x_. These textures are needed if someone is using the low resolutions for the character.
XnConvert can do that easy by doing this: 0.50 scale is used for 2x_ and 0.25 scale for 4x_.
You can also do it with photoshop.
Packing a mod
Now we are ready to pack into a modfile. Go to LCSManager and click on create a mod.
After that add your informations and add the RAW Folder.
Never select the DATA, LEVELS or ASSETS Folder otherwise it will not work. Select the folder ABOVE theses folders.
