Question about ped outfit transparency or avoiding an off-screen texture piece
The ped I'm messing with has a bikini top drawn on, but it's drawn on OFF the body and isn't applied as an accessory. Meaning there is an actual torso that's fairly normal looking, and in an unused section of the uppr_diff_.ytd file, they slapped the bikini top and straps there instead of having an actual accessory file. I've tried making the bikini top area transparent, tried making the specular transparent, etc., and nothing works. I know I can edit the image and paste a section of the chest area OVER the bikini top (alignment would be annoying be easy enough) and probably have seams, but I'd like to have it ignore the top altogether.
Anyone know how? When I made everything transparent, it shows up as a solid black bikini top now. I'm using gimp and zmodeler.
