  1. @Philo Thanks to your tons of help , I have successfully created my minifig , with dual molded arms , boots etc. What I ended up doing is just using the two sub parts as seperate parts inside my library , and I then colored them accordingly in stud.io and simply aligned them carefully and then "combined" them into one part. That way I didn't have to deal with the color glitch ... I did create some pre-made legs in different colors for future use however. Now my only problem is that although I did manage to get LDPatternCreator on a friend's laptop , my designs for the "decals" have many curves and intricacies , and are impossible to recreate using it ( as it only allows up to a certain amount of precision , I'm sure you know ). I remember you mentioned other options when it comes to texture mapping . What are these options ? Is there anything I can use to photorealistically render something I built on Stud.io ( probably via another Ldraw tool as you mentioned that there isn't one for Stud.io ) with my decal designs mapped to the surfaces of the torso , legs etc ? Again , a big thank you for all your help , I couldn't do any of this without it !
  2. Got it ! You are amazing my friend ! From a bit of meddling with the DAT files I gathered that the second field in the 12th line of 20460p02.dat is the one that controls the color , right ? I'm testing different values trying to get the boots to be metallic silver. Is there any chart/file where I can see the color values ? Also , does something similar already exist for dual molded arms too ?
  3. Thank you so much @Philo ! I think it's me doing something wrong here , but I'm guessing it's not normal for the parts to appear like this is it ? Is there any way I can fix this ?
  4. Damn , Windows only ( I use Mac and Linux ). Guess I'll need to borrow someone's laptop . The part I'm referring to is any pair of legs with two colors molded in them one on the upper part and one on the lower. This and this are some examples. Thank you so much for the assist !
  5. Thanks so much for the help , all 3 of you . @The_Director My goal is just to build my scenes for the Star Wars factions community project on LDD ( as I'm used to it and it's tools more by now ) , then import them into Stud.io ( maybe add a couple of things using parts not available in LDD ) hopefully managing to apply my custom decals to my characters and then using the amazing rendering Stud.io provides to make them look as real as possible, and use said renders as "comic panels" for my stories in Factions. @supertruper1988 that's pretty smart ! How exactly would I do that ? Meaning how would I edit the DAT file ( at least I assume that's what I have to do to ) of say a torso with existing decoration A (or maybe just use the plain one?) to change it to custom decoration B ? Also , under where did you find the dual molded legs in the LDraw library ? Again , a big thank you to everyone for the quick and very useful tips
  6. Hello guys , I desperately need a stud.io expert's help : I am doing builds for Star Wars factions using LDD and stud.io and I've stumbled upon some roadblocks in my use of Stud.io. Namely : 1) I cannot find any way to make parts that are supposed to be dual-molded be two different colors. For example I want a minifig's legs to be tan in their upper area , with dark bluish grey as the "boots"/lower part. Another example is a doctor who sonic screwdriver - I want the "body" to be pearl grey but the "light bulb" on top to be a trans green or trans blue . Is there any way , direct or indirect , to achieve that ? 2) What I also looked for , but could not find , was a way to use my own custom decals on , say a minifig torso . Is there any way of accessing the decoration/decal database of the programm and adding my own / replacing an existing one with my own ? If this has been answered / covered elsewhere , feel free to lock / delete the topic and point me to the right direction. Thanks in advance to anyone kind enough to help.
  7. Man that looks amazing ! PM'ed you with details so we can get this going . Finding such a good designer is a great Christmas gift !
  8. Thank you so much @DefinitelyJY ! Well, the first figure I need is my main character , who wears this guy's clothes ( I need decals for torso front, back and legs ) and has the new Captain America head ( the serious expression, not the smiling one , so need a face decal for that as well ). Is there any website / flickr page / whatever where I can see your style / past creations ? Again , thanks a ton in advance !
  9. Hey everyone :) I am currently working on a building-storytelling project of mine ( for Factions over at the star wars sub-forum ) and I'm in need of some decals . I have searched both the internet in general and Eurobricks itself a lot to find someone to make decals for me ( In exchange for payment of course ) and I haven't found anyone ( that is still active and will answer messages at least ). Is there someone here who does decal commissions ? If not , do any of you guys know any person/ service that would take said commissions (I only need jpg's/png's/whatev's of the decal , I don't need it printed or anything of the sort as my creations will be digital ) ? Also , if this post should be elsewhere or doesn't belong here , I apologise , please move it / alter it where/how ever you need to . Thanks to everyone in advance, I am really eager to share my story and builds with you when I am done with both builds and figures !

    Decal Wish List

    Hello guys , I am currently working on my character for Factions ( the SoNE sequel ). All of my creations will be digital so I need some decals for pieces that already exist in real life. Specifically , I am in dire need of this Jedi's clothes ( torso , hips and legs ) , and the new Captain America head , but with a black beard instead of a brown one ( maybe the highlights that are a lighter brown could be dark bluish grey ? ). I only need the primary , serious expression , since my character won't be exactly the slapstick humour type , but if someone had the extra time and will I could use an alternate expression with a raised-eyebrow-type small subtle smirk. In any case if someone was kind enough to do any of the above i'd be forever grateful and would give them credit in every factions story to come . Thanks in advance !

    [MOC] Batmobile : The Predator

    Yeah , brickshelf just needs its time , it's downloadable if you check now guys , so @Rustinidiel's villains are in for a treat . I'd love to see pictures if you guys go ahead and build it ( and I'd appreciate credit if you happen to use it anywhere which I would love ).

    [MOC] Batmobile : The Predator

    @terryfay1983 @LegoMonorailFan , Thanks for your comments guys ! I'm honoured @Gerechtigkeitsliga I'm actually working on a scuttler type vehicle that transforms into a batwing right now ( kind of like the Lego Batman Movie ) @the imperial reporter I can cook a quick ldd file up if that format is convenient for you

    [MOC] Batmobile : The Predator

    @TheBrickBuilder14 Thank you so much ! I am a really big fan of your vehicles as well so it means a lot ! A minifigure can actually fit inside (barely though) , although sadly not with the Batman cowl used for the Lego Batman Movie Batman ( the BvS short-ears one fits just fine though). I am also happy to say that Race mode can be "locked" so that the wheels don't spread out when you play with the car ( as I said playability was an important factor in this ). @JACKATTACKS , @Master_Data , @Actor Builder , @Chookdude Thanks so much guys ! It really means a lot !
