Connecting Multiple .psk mesh armatures?
« on: April 24, 2020, 23:02 »

Hi, so I've been trying all day to try and get the hair connected to the rest of the armature, but every time i do it something goes wrong, it looks like there is duplicate bones from the body skeleton and the hair one. I'm a total noob at Blender so i have no idea how to fix this.

I can supply a .blend file if it would help, but this is the best way i can show it!

Yes, each comes with it's own armature so when you combine them, there will be duplicates. Take the ones that are parented to duplicate bones, parent them to the main ones and delete the duplicates.

Yeah, i managed to do that thanks Smiley is there a simple way to change the hair to be more realistic other than messing on with textures etc...? I have installed hairnet but i can't seem to figure out how to turn the mesh into "blender hair" as it were

If you apply all the correct texture maps, including the alpha/opacity map, it should look as good as it would in-game.

Hair Material use Opacity/Alpha masks, so make sure your material for it is set to Alpha Clip (Material Properties).

and when merging multiple skeletons, merge top to bottom (Hat, FaceAcc, then Body last).

After merge, click on select by suffix, type in .001 (and 002, 003 etc) to delete dups and some may need to be reparented back to main bones.
