How to Make Shirts and Pants
You can have all the fun of working in a textile mill here in GoodBlox! I'm talking about making your own pants and shirts, either for yourself or to sell to your fellow GoodBloxians whose fashion sense or artistic skill might not be as great as your own.
Anyone can purchase new shirts and pants in the GoodBlox Catalog. You don't even need Builders Club here!
First go to your character customization page. Click the type of item you would like to create (Shirts or Pants). Then click "Create".
Now you’ll see a screen that looks like this:
First you need to download the shirt template to your computer. This is a picture that you draw on to create you own shirt. I personally use a very old version of Paint Shop Pro to create my shirts. You can use whichever image editing program you like. Paint.NET is a decent free one. GIMP is another. Some users will even use the plain old Microsoft paint program to make their shirts and pants.
Working With the Template
You’ll notice that the Shirt Template file you download looks crazy and has lots of pretty colors. Fear not — You are about to become a 3D graphics artist!
The basic idea here is that the shirt template is "folded" up and wrapped around your character, like origami. If you were to print out the template below, you could cut out all the colored rectangles, tape them together, and create a real-life 3D shirt. That’s what GoodBlox does for you once you upload your shirt template image.
Uploading Your Shirt
Once you’ve painted your shirt, click the "Browse" button to select your shirt file and click "Create Shirt". The shirt will show up in your wardrobe. Congrats! You’ve made your first new shirt!
- If you're importing a template directly from ROBLOX, then it will work perfectly as the template is compatible!
- If you really know what you are doing with your image editor program, you can make parts of your shirt transparent so that the underlying body of the character shows through. GoodBlox pant/shirt templates use 8 bits of alpha.
- If you use an image editor like Paint Shop or Photoshop, it's a good idea to set up the template on a separate semi-transparent layer other than the one you are working on. I find that this is the easist way to work.
- Here's a template that you can use that is fully transparent by default:
NOTE: This template can be used to make both Shirts and Pants.
