Hey there, Queenz!

There are no special programs. You'd need abilities with 3D modelling and 2D texturization. It's not something you'd learn in hours, or days.

There are some basic things you could search in the forum to START:

3D modelling, Blender, .ecm, 2D texturization, gfx.

There's also the possibility of extracting these contents from other Wanmei games (like Jade Dynasty, Forsaken World, and some others).

So, start searching over the ragezone, the perfect world forums, google, etc. I hope you invest some time in learning 3D design =)

Knowledge comes with time, so don't expect to create/implement tons of custom stuff in your server for now.

Good luck.

Without mentioning any names, maybe my one buddy who knows and does modeling (from here @ RZ, I'm guessing you'll know who you are if you read this :):) will chime in with some advice, at least some more potentially good places to start with :):

I think I might know them as well.

Well you can start here with this
Its a little too updated though. The scripts we use are for blender 2.49 which is very old. The interface is also pretty terrible as well. The plugins need updating. They are here anyway. Make sure you grab the latest one though.
http://forum.ragezone.com/f694/ski-blender-importer-508133/

I would suggest downloading Maya and Mudbox instead then just exporting the models to Blender, connect the textures then save out as a ski. When exporting you just need to make sure to add all the properties in correctly and it will work.

If you need help with using Maya or Mudbox I could probably help out a bit.

Then there is a the gfx effects, I only played with them briefly though so I wont be too much help with them. Its pretty much just changing random things in notepad and seeing what happens.

As far as gfx manipulation goes, and without promoting any servers, some of the coolest looking axes ive seen are kicking about on the storm server.
The files in the ss are some very old russian files who did also incorporate gfx file manipulation of available graphics from pwi (?) (Looked at these back in the days of 136), but as posted you can acquire other gfx from other games.

Ye..the end game weps there are actual pwi (not released yet?) but they used to be different until they were delegated to a lesser rank and are the ones i was actually referring to..in particular the bm axes, the blue ones that have used floor graphics from the cave of sadistic glee..well this a great example of ingenious use of what is available and i cant help but give credit where credit is due they look spectacular imo.
Good luck with your endeavours Queenz, look forward to seeing some of your creations on RZ oneday :thumbup1:

btw you don't need to build your own custom.
you can use other wanmei games. and import it to PW.
and of course with a small fix.

here for example my friends work import other wanmei games to PW.

Seems like something that the old Vendetta Server would do.. hell of a lot of customizations but thats why I loved it... not a lot of 1.4.5+ are customized besides... dont know cant really think of any. But im tired and didnt even finish half of my Homework so...I have to get down and dirty with this stuff tommorow and Im going to feel sooooo smart when I finally make my 1st weapon lol but I was looking and wondering (because I searched up .ecm) And seen some post about the effects on the weapon... I didnt really understand like... How do you make it a certian way , electric, circles, sparkles etc? is there a tuturiol on that?

yes... some of it already on Vendetta. but we not use Vendetta content. we find the original game by ourself, and do a small fix. and yes it's a little help from Vendetta too.

Trial and Error is your best friend.
