Reference Images
Making your Mod
I will break this down to each component

How to use Reference Images
Project5001.jpg


1) Drag you reference image into the Library
Project5101.jpg


2)Right Click, Insert Layer
Project5201.jpg


3) Drag the new layer behind everything
4) Drag the reference image onto the timeline

NOTE: Before you publish a mod for public release, be sure to remove ALL reference images.

HER
HER Setup
You have two folders in the “Library”. Her Components & Her Layouts
Project0101.jpg

HER Componets
NEWEYEWEAR: This component is above the FACE, but below the EAR
Project0201.jpg


1) Go into her components and Double Click neweyewear
2) Make sure you are drawing on “Layer 1”
3) Draw your Mod
4) You have two options here. Right click and set the “Outline” layer as a “Guide”, or delete it.
NOTE: Setting a Layer as a Guide will prevent it from showing up in the game, as well as allowing you to return later to modify easier.

NEWNECK: Current setting for this component are for “Collar”. This means the Component is NOT attached to the body's Hue-Slider. It also means that this Component is ABOVE the FACE
Project0302.jpg


1) Go into her components and Double Click newneck
2) Make sure you are drawing on “Layer 1”
3) Draw your Mod
4) You have two options here. Right click and set the “Outline” layer as a “Guide”, or delete it.

Now this is where Faceless's Template comes into play. Sometimes you will not want your New Neck to be above the face, but rather under it.

Open Faceless's Mod Template and press “F9” to open the Actions Window.
Scroll down until you see the Code marked
//---------------------------neck
var neck=new newneck();
It should be somewhere around Line 171. You will see two lines of Coding Below

Project0401.jpg


The first line will add your new neck as a skin. It will attach the new component to the body's Hue-Slider, but add it BELOW the Face.
Copy just the selected bit:

Project0501.jpg


And return to the “Her Costume Template”
Replace the Selected portion of costume coding with the new skin coding on line 19

Project0601.jpg


NOTE: The only real issue here is that if your Custom Character has any Hue Shifting done to the skin, the new neck will shift with it.

The Layouts display the components together as they appear in the game. There are seven layouts in all. Head, left arm, left leg, right arm, right leg, torso, and torso back.

Rather than repeat everything you've seen above, I'll break this down simple, using the Torso Layout.

Project4101.jpg


1) Choose your Layout in the Library.
2) Double click the component you wish to modify. (I'm trying to modify the Calfr)
NOTE: Double clicking the Arms or Legs, will Open another Layout.

Project4201.jpg


3) After Double clicking the Calfr Component, you will notice that the timeline has only two layers, the Calf and Thigh. Drawing on these layers will not produce a mod.
4) You are still in the Right Leg Layout.

Project4301.jpg


5) Double Click until the desired component's name appears here
6) And the timeline shows “Layer 1” + “Outline”. Now you are ready to draw your Mod.

FUTA
Not Finished... yet ;D

Finishing Up
Adding Character Code

1)Open the loader, open the Custom tab, and set your character with the desired traits

Project4501.jpg


2) Open the Modding tab
3) Click “Generate”
4) Right Click, Copy.

Project4601.jpg


5) Paste your Character Code between the “ “, to have your custom settings load automatically.
NOTE: I recommend pasting your custom code into a notepad first, and edit out, only what you need.

Publishing
Project4701.jpg


Go to “File / Export / Export Movie”

TESTING:

Open Loader
Go to Modding Menu
Click Import SWF

Common Mistakes
Outlines and Growing Boobs
You're going to notice immediately that there are outlines everywhere, and the breasts continue to grow, over and over again.

This is because every component is registered already.

SIMPLE SOLUTION:
Press F9, and click Layer 1, Frame 1

Project5301.jpg


Say the only components you want to use are the Thighs and Calves. Select every other Component line and remove them until your code looks like this.

Are there images in this?
If so they may be broken.

If not, consider making some to further help.
Otherwise a pretty nice guide.

Yeah, there's images. Full screen shots and arrows pointing to each numbered step. I just checked again to make sure, and I can see them ???. Can anyone else confirm that they are or are not visible.
 

dantethedarkprince

Content Creator
Do me a favor Synon. Stick around for minute. I'm going to attempt to fix the first image in "Her Setup" Let me know if it works.

EDIT: Fixed, did it work?
 

dantethedarkprince

Content Creator
Crap, I was adding the wrong image link. I didn't do anything different than what I do for my screen shots in my mod threads

EDIT: I fixed all 52 image links... I think.

EDIT 2: Great! I was worried there for a second that all that hard work this morning was for nothing.

How do I hide the old nipples while showing the new nipples?

I am a newbie at Flash and creating Mods but I have found the tutorials very helpful and have successfully created wide and long nipples that are larger than the old nipples and cover them up but I am trying to create nipples that are a little higher up on the breast and perky.

Which breast movie clip?: (1) the vanilla breast or (2) new breastr with the nipple layer deleted

(1) I tried programmatically setting the nipple visibility to false but that hid the new nipples

Code:
main.her.torso.midLayer.rightBreast.nipple.visible = false;
nipr = new newnippler();
main.loadManual(nipr, main.her.torso.midLayer.rightBreast);

(2) I tried instantiatiating and loading a new breastr with the nipple layer deleted but that just added a gray skin.

<code from #1 plus the following>
Code:
rtit = new breastr();
rtit.gotoAndStop(main.g.characterControl.breastSize + 1);
main.loadManual(rtit, main.her.torso.midLayer.rightBreast);

I am using Mod Template v0.96.4.fla

I know I am showing my ignorance but any help is much appreciated.

Try this:
Code:
for(var j = 0; j < main.her.torso.midLayer.rightBreast.nipple.numChildren; j++) {
    main.her.torso.midLayer.rightBreast.nipple.getChildAt(j).visible = false;
}
You should, of course, make everything visible again when unloading the mod.

Worked! Thanks.

The reset works when unloading the mod via the "Reset" button on the first tab but how do I register the reset function so it is called on a mod reset on the "Modding" tab (or is that only for vanilla mods)?
 

Faceless

Content Creator
The latter. The reset button on the Scene tab was added precisely because the Modding tab reset is for vanilla only.

I am making a couple of body bods: slender and skinny. I have replaced right thigh, left thigh and chest with custom components and set the butt visibility to false. The skinny mod has an extension to the upper butt part of the right thigh so it extends further clockwise so there is no gap for rotated legs (see last pic).

The extension shows through part of the chest but not completely. The slender version does not have that extension but there stills looks to be some bleed through on the fill (but no outline).

I removed the fill to the three custom components to show that the new chest extends over the bleed through.

Any suggestions?

Without extension

Hey I want to know if anyone knows if their is any way to bring certain body parts in Flash Animate above another. Like say I want to have torso segments above leg segments. How would one do that if possible?
