I've never done any skinning but when perusing the .dds files in game, found the character skins. What caught my eye was that a character's skin is like a collage, one image containing all the textures for that character. How does this work? How does FC 'cut out' and place what it needs? If one alters the size/shape, will it throw everything off?
Just a little insight into dealing with skins would be greatly appreciated.
