Attention! Both, the RTE-Encoder and the rte-zip-file for the Horse is not available any more and so the download of these 2 tools doesn't work any more :-(
I tried to contact crblackthorne but the mail came back as not deliverable.
The RTE-Encoder seems to be renewed but i don't know when and i do not believe that this will happen.
I don't know whether i am allowed to do these 2 tools on my website, you can contact me.
Using Millenium-Horse-1 skins at Horse 2
I have bought Horse 2 base because it was a cheap offer in one day at the
daz store and i didn't need all the expensive things that come with the
bundles. So i bought only horse2 base.
But unfortunately i noticed later that there are only 3 skins for
horse2 base and the other skins are only in the expensive bundles and
daz doesn't sell them separately, the support told me :-(
So what to do?
One method that worked was to copy and edit an existing skin in
Photoshop and applay it with the surface-tab. That works well, but
there is a way to use the old Millenium-Horse1-Skins too:
First go to https://sites.google.com/site/crblackthorne/downloads
and load the rte-file "Horse 2 Mil Horse UV and Clone.zip" down.
Then go to http://www.rtencoder.com/ and load the RTE-Encoder. There is a tutorial on this site how to use it, but it doesn't explain all steps.
Start the rte-encoder:
and click on "File - Decode"
Choose the downloaded rte-file:
The rte creates a zip-file with all infos for Daz-Studio. At the next step the rte wants to know where he can save it.
You have to tell him a foldername. It is not important where this folder is, because the rte only saves it's zip-file there.
The rte suggests a good and correct name for this file.
Next thing it needs is the correct key-1-file. This is the obj from Millenium-Horse 1.
You find it in your content\Runtime\Geometries\DAZAnimals - folder. On my computer
it is in the old DAZ-3 folder structure, in Poser-Geometries.
After clicking on "finish" you have a zip - file with the following content:
in this screenshot there are the folders Animals and data as the content of "Horse 2 Mil Horse UV and Clone.zip"
Unzip them in your My DAZ 3D Library or where your Horse 2 is saved:
Then start DAZ and load your Horse 2:
It would be nice if you could go now
to your MilHorse1-MAT-Folders and add the skin by doubleclick, but
unfortunately this doesn't work:
Make sure that Horse2 is selected and go to the surface-Tab and click on the left small icon on the diffuse-panel:
Go to content\Runtime\textures\DAZ\Animals\MilHorse. You see something like this here:
Select one of the files that is a skin for the body, for example MHBodyBayM.jpg. Try it.
Last what you have to do is to change the UV-Set to Millenium-Horse.
Now you can use the old skins on horse 2 :-)
Now you can safe the material as Material-Preset in a folder and next time you can add the skins with double-click :-)
