Skin textures with 4Arms for Genesis
So I finally picked up the 4Arms product since it is currently on sale. However, I'm wondering if I will actually be able to use it, due to texture issues. The one included texture set doesn't work for me, since it has far too maleish a look and I am intending this for a female figure. I've tried copying the like-named Skin surfaces from the parent Genesis figure to the 4Arms figure, and this only sort of works. For one, the Arms only support a single UV mapping, which appears to be mostly compatible with V4 UVs. V5 and Hitomi UVs are completely out. But even V4 UVs have problems in the SkinArm surface (the torso, forearms, hands and fingernails seem to work OK). There ends up being a band between the arm and the torso that shows up, and it's quite a large band at that -- VERY noticeable. With the Genesis Basic Female textures, it's a white band. With, for example, some of the skins from Silver (her Devon skin is one of my most-used skins on Genesis) you can see the copyright text in the texture file getting mapped onto the arm near where it joins the torso.
Has anyone made a female-suited texture for the 4Arms product? Or have any suggestions for how to fix existing textures to fill in this problem area? I'm not terribly worried about v5 and Hitomi UVs not working. But as it currently stands, the 4Arms product is unworkable for me, which is a shame.
