This got me thinking that it should be possible to retexture parts of a head without all that mucking about in 3ds Max. One could, for example, change the color of one eye. However, whenever I try that, it simply reverts to the default texture. This is rather baffling, so I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the matter.
I don't know which head is which by the name, but I would assume that if the texture has two eyes, you'd have to edit the UVW-map to make one a separate texture. I personally have no idea how to do this, but it makes me wonder if someone could translate the hex using a tool and edit it in human-speak?
