Hi. I have a model of Halo 3's Hayabusa armor that I need to use to animate in a machinima series that I make, but it doesn't have any texture. If there is anyone able to texture it, with the primary color being Steel, with Google Sketchup, please provide me with your Email, and I'll send you the model. Thank you.

I can get the textures. :) Do you still need it? What format do you want it in?

Heh, that's alright. There's been a change however. See, I now have the model in 3DS Max, and I ripped the texture from the game, but whenever I try to apply it to the model it only lays out properly on the helmet, right shoulder, and chest piece. Not only that, but I don't actually know how to change the colour (quite inexperienced in 3DS). If you can help me out with that, it'd be much appreciated. If not, thanks anyway.

Hmm... Well, for me, I'm changing armor colors in Gimp. I sure there is a way to change colors in 3dsmax only effecting certain parts, but I have not found it yet. (Nor have I really needed to, yet)

There IS a bit of a benefit to giving characters their own unique texture. :P Kinda like what they did in Halo 4 with all the custom store and camo patterns.

I could give it a look in regards to the armor texture not applying.

That'd be great. I'm gonna go ahead and assume that the file is too large to Email, so how does Skype sound?

the texture only applies to the head, shoulder, and torso because it is inefficient to duplicate the entire master chief texture when only those 3 parts are being changed.
there are plenty of threads where you can see how to change armor color, and in my Halo 4 edited chief thread there is a downloadable .max scene that has a color change setup pre-made.

Cool! Thanks for the info!

And yes, in Halo 3, only the shoulders, chest, and helmet are changeable, meaning that the rest of the armor goes unchanged.
