Hey The Amethyst Dragon,

Do you happen to have a torso aligned helper template like the head aligned visuals you gave me?  I found another one somewhere a while ago, and I finally got around to loading it up in max.... but it appears to be just a human torso, and a human-sized aribeth torso.... which doesn't quite help me resizing/placing torso aligned VFX's for the other races Sad

I'm wondering because I've been making a backpack VFX for my module, plus I wanted to tweak the placement of your VFX quivers for a couple of the races (such as gnome... the quivers are a tad too 'close' to the body and don't have the nice spacial orientation as do the human and elf versions).

Thanks!

Sorry for the post hijack. Are there free or low-cost alternatives to 3DS Max? Or a way to get an older version for free or low-cost? The current retail is $3,700...

gmax, it's the freeware version of 3ds.

It's pretty much the same thing, but *how* you go about doing certain things is different, such as if I recall, exporting is done in a very PITA manner.

I do not have a helper template for torsos.  I should, but I've not made one.

Ok, so I went to make my own template... I extracted the human torso part through nwnexplorer, loaded into max with a copy of the quiver vfx...

And the torso is waaaay up on the z-axis!  What exactly is the VFX supposed to align with?

I am thinking that if I make a dummy "torso" vfx, and make it a conspicuous color, I could monkey around with it's placement by testing it in-game until I get it lined up right where the torso is..... but that's a LOT of monkeying at 2 torsos per 6 racial types.... O_o

Got a hold of a set of torso templates Smile  Rolo had a full set uploaded to the new vault.
