you can't.. you can only apply custom textures to props, not to anything static in utherverse... for that you must rely on the textures in the world texture editor.

There is a category in the world texture library called "user uploaded" though...was wondering how that worked myself...I guess from your response tayls that it doesn't lol!

there are two ways, one way is to find the map of it, and texture all the parts to suit.

the easier way is to find an image you like, make sure it's scaled to a power of 2 (like 512x512, or 256x512... something along those lines), upload it to a file storage place like photobucket.

then, have your photobucket album open. when you hover your mouse over the picture you use, the options will expand. click on 'direct link' and it's copied to your clipboard automtically.

on the prop you're editing in world, go to script tab, find 'cached web image' and select it. then in the text entry field, press 'ctrl-v' to paste it. save the prop, and it's retextured Smile

the edited map is placed on the prop in the same manner, but you will need something like gimp or paint.net or photoshop to work with it.

any time, happy to help Smile

btw, if you can't find the map for the prop in either of those places, just ask in that thread. if it's available, someone will have it. wraith seems to have most of the ones that are possible to get Smile
