Interesting. I didn't know you could zip without compression. What program did you use?

So I just need BMP files?

I'm trying to make a ball that looks like BB8 from Star Wars

DJ,

Yes you must use BMP files. I wrote some directions on the second posting of this thread on how to create them. Look for "Creating Custom Balls". I never figured out how to add custom balls to the script though.

I am going to take a month or so break...but I couldn't resist Dj
Here is demo of BB-8 ball. I can refine it later

It takes forever to load...Whitey Weissman can help maybe decrease the triangle count in the model

But this is proof of concept...

I am going to take a break from FP soon, but it sooo hard , as there is so much cool stuff happening :D

Did you try it ?
I just realized , I had the body not selected properly. Link updated.
It takes about a minute to load due to model size I guess.... :oops:

here's a video:

Hi Gimli, yes I tried it, it does take a bit for it to load.

Wow you went above and beyond lol I just meant I wanted the ball to have the colors of BB* not to actually look like BB8 hahaha

That looks awesome, I'll give the new one a whirl.

I like it a lot too. I might add it to Slam's SW table. It is slow to load on my PC also.

If Monnezzas or Whitey Weissman is around they can probably help with the models

This is the original free model archive I downloaded:
