    Hey guys,

    I've been figuring out how to create kits in rugby 08. And here's my first attempt. I did the new springboks home kit.

    Looks good Shaheen, it just needs the right template for the collar, or alternatively, if you use a layer in photoshop (copy the template as a new image) you can cut out the shape you want to be transparent around the collar. Also, the logos are blurry. We now make only HD kits which has perfect resolution.. so no more blurry stretched logos.

    To make a HD kit, just double the size of the template to 1024x1024 and the kitback to 512x512. Reduce the window down to 50% so it looks the same as it usually would and just add the more high-res logos and you will notice a huge difference.

    Welcome to the forum, and very good effort for a 1st try. You can get them much, much sharper, that is all i can see that is 'wrong'. See my main thread, erics or gunners threads and you will see them how they can be. It is no extra work, and is much nicer to make kits this way.

    thanx for the feedback.... i know what u mean about the logos that a smudging a bit. i just came across a thought.... perhaps i should make the kit in illustrator coz its vector based gfx. gonna give that a shot too. for the next version i'm gonna use the method suggested by increasing the template size.

    i have now started with the HD version of my kit. the only problem i have now is that i can't seem to get the transparent area around the collar. how do i set the transparency? or should i save the kit as .png and then use that to import the .big file?

    here's a preview of what i've done thus far.....

    Hi mate.
    Try downloading my Canterbury HD kit template here: http://files.filefront.com/CCC+template+v2...;/fileinfo.html

    Look the transparency in the collar, that's the way to make the collar looks correct.

    Save the image as PNG and import it to the "kit.fsh" file with FshEd and then import that file to the big file with BigGui

    .. i found that if you make a new image of the kit (so it's all 1 layer) then you can cut out the collar shape from it and it looks perfect, if you do it right. This works on all collars, although looks better for some than others. Take for example, Romania's kit.. it has a hexagon shape collar. You can just this cut it out in a new layer (assuming you have the right collar config) and it will look better. Not sure how it works well for CCC, but it's more that you'd be doing it wrong. Also, you must save as a file that supports transparency, so don't save as jpeg, jpg, bmp, gif (never tried but might work).. always use png or psd, or if you use paintshoppro, i think psp might also work.

    ShaheenJ, if you have photoshop, save the kitbacks as psd.. use fshED with the photoshop plug in and it's a lot quicker. Although, you have to rename the subfiles with different names or it wont work though. If you have an email, i'll send you the file you need. You can just use this kitback file for all your kitbacks.

    And here's the springbok away kit. I kinda made my own thing here... Coz I'm not sure if its plain white, but oh well I kinda like the green plastic'ish stuff on the chest and sleeves.

    Looking really good. These can go in Sanzar mod. Make as many South African teams as you like, to make sanzar mod i will need all 8 teams plus 4 from div 1 to replace Guinness Premiership. I am doing Air New Zealand kits but these kits are a mod quality and if you wanna do some be my guest, just ask me first as i have done some and there is no need to repeat. I did do Western Province, not sure if you edited it, it looks similar.
