Setting the Skin material

you can create a new material and drag skin texture and normal map in normal map slot.

Once the material is created you can chose the material shader for skin from built in unity standard, custom shader or SineWave skin shader.

SineWave Skin Shader

  • Main Color - Sets the overall color of the skin.
  • Specular Color - Tints specular highlights of the skin.
  • Shininess - Sets the shine amount of the skin.
  • Rim Power - how rim lighting spreads around the edges of the model.
  • Rim HDR - Adds a boost to rim lighting, to enable it push into HDR values (i.e. Brighter than white) for bloom.
  • Normal Power - controls power of normal map (allowing them to be more/under represented)
  • Tessellation - allows DX11 Tessellation which smooth's geometry when camera is up close. (Desktop and DX11 viewers only)
  • Specular Amount - Sets the specular amount.
  • Gloss Amount - Sets how glossy the skin should look.
  • Smoothness - controls specular highlights on PBR platforms (higher = tighter highlights), correlates with Standard shader.
  • Occlusion - controls ambient occlusion.
  • Loading color - For internal use. PLEASE IGNORE THIS SETTING.

Using Make clothing component to fit the Skin

Once the skin material is created, it needs to be converted to fit the skeleton.

Create an empty game object in the scene and add the Make Clothing or Attachment Component to it.

Skeleton Selection

Chose the relevant Skelton for the clothing item. Please note Space supports multiple third party skeletons as well as it's own native male and female models.


Slots

If you are creating only skin, select Skin Base slot. If you want the skin to have more than just skin select other applicable slots.

Skin Setup

Select Only contains skin if you are uploading skin only. If you are doing a combined outfit Don't select this.

  • Note : if you are not making just skin you will have to click on Convert to skinned button later. if you are creating just skin this step is not needed and the button will disappear as soon as you select Skin only.

Replacement Skin

Set the number of material the skeleton you are using has.

Sine Space male and female skin only has 1 material; if you have selected that as the skeleton Set the size to 1.

After the size is set. Drag the skin material in the material slot.
