F.A.Q.

How do I install a skin/model switch?

Since patch 2.0 all skins/model switch must be in a mpq file with patch-1.mpq/patch-a.mpq name.

Place the mpq into your:
C:\World of Warcraft\Data\ folder

e.g.)
C:\World of Warcraft\Data\patch-s.mpq:

How do I remove a skin/model switch?

Simply delete or rename the mpq so it does not meet the patch-1.mpq/patch-a.mpq naming convention.

e.g.)
C:\World of Warcraft\Data\patch-s.mpq:
to
C:\World of Warcraft\Data\patch-s1.mpq:

Why are so many skins nude?

The biggest investment into pushing to learn how to skin for WoW was done by mostly by the ERP community of Darknest. I as well started skinning for WoW on behalf of the Darknest community, they even gave me my copy of WoW and subscriptions and resources to find a way to create nude skins to enhance their gameplay. Most games not designed to have costum skins have nude skins - WoW is no exception.

Why are there so few nude male skins?

Reason for this is the lack of those extra polygons for a anatomically correct male model... with the lack of the models realism combined with the small texture size and in most case large distorted UV maps makes creating a a decent male nude skins nearly impossible. This has twarted most WoW skinners from even attempting it. Sorry ladies, unless someone finds a way to make a more 'detailed' models for males... it's unlikely you will ever see many if any nude male skins. But, with model switching more highly debated, it's highly unlikely you will see anyone successful at importing new/edited models.
