    Files over 10mb

    so yeah, i've started doing skins on SAI and noticed that the files always come up 10mb or more. this did not happen when i used Substance Painter. does anyone have any idea why, or any tips how to get the size more smaller? i'm pretty sure that skins with that big files wont be added in-game.

    Just a few things to remember: you need to make sure you're saving them as 24 bit TGA files, there also shouldn't be an alpha channel and the skin should not be above 1024x1024 resolution at the absolute maximum. It ought to come out at about 3-4mb, although to be fair the data is compressed somewhat when you save a package in-editor, so there's a little bit of leeway.

    I thought it was 512x512, with the exeption of acro that has 1024x512?

    I did say ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM. On rare occasions slightly larger textures are permissible, like the alpha female raptor or a particularly detailed human face overlay.

    I understand. I was told before that skin files were not allowed to be bigger than 512x512 at all, I just wanted to make sure.
