Branding

K.R. Engineering games allow you to put your own image or logo on your game systems. This custom image will appear on the game playing surface (the octagon that has the game elements on it, such as dice, cards, game boards, etc). Your image may be partially obscured by the game pieces, and how much is visible will vary depending on which game is being played.

By default, this game area is controlled by the theme system and can appear differently depending on which theme you are using. There may be options to customize the game area from within the THEME menu as well. To override the theme and supply your own image instead, you will need to use the BRANDING button within the rezzer's admin menu. For information on using the admin menu, please see the Game Rezzer System section.

After pressing the BRANDING button, you will be prompted to supply a texture UUID by speaking it on your chat channel. You must be near the game for this to work. UUIDs can be obtained from any texture or snapshot in your inventory that you have full permissions on (a texture that you uploaded, or a snapshot that you took, for example). Simply right-click on the texture and choose "Copy Asset UUID." This will copy the texture's UUID to your computer's clipboard, and you can paste it your Second Life chat box.

Advanced Branding

In addition to supplying your own texture, you can also supply your own normal map and specular map if you wish. To do this, simply chat all three at once, separated by the pipe (|) character. For example:

TEXTURE_UUID|NORMAL_MAP_UUID|SPECULAR_MAP_UUID

All three textures will have repeats of 1x1 with no offsets. There are also some optional extra parameters you can include along with each UUID by separating them with semi-colons (;).

TEXTURE_UUID;<vector_tint_color>

Tint color will default to white (no tint) if not supplied.

SPECULAR_MAP_UUID;<vector_specular_color>;specular_glossiness;specular_environment

Specular color will default to white if not supplied. Specular glossiness will default to 50 if not supplied. Specular environment will default to 20 (low reflection) if not supplied.

There are no extra options for the normal map at this time.

All of this options must be supplied at the same time, and can be combined as desired. For example:

TEXTURE_UUID;<tint_color>|NORMAL_MAP_UUID|SPECULAR_MAP_UUID;<specular_color>;gloss;environment

Colors are expressed in the form of a vector of <R, G, B> including the angle brackets (< and >). R, G, and B are values between 0.0 (0%) and 1.0 (100%).
