How to make an image be associated with a new item?


Recommended Posts


For playing around, I made a new jacket item.  I got it to display the stats and description.  It gives the boosts like the Nerd Glass I copied from.  There is a mesh associated with it from the jacket Node / Item that I had copied from.  I was thinking it would use the same image on the belt and in the coat slot on the UI.  However, there's no image.  I can not double click to equip; I must use the W key.  Just with the images in the icon folder or wherever the game gets images currently.  How would I associate an image to it?  I even tried copy and paste an existing image and name it the same as the item.

I had tried that before with the name of the .png that I had copied and pasted.  I had seen another example in the XML after reading your comment (will paste) and STILL the image doesn't show.  These are new things that wasn't copied and paste but added.

<item name="apparelLabCoat">
    <property name="Extends" value="apparelCoatJacketGeneric" param1="CustomIcon"/>
    <property name="DescriptionKey" value="apparelLabCoatDesc"/> <!--apparelLabCoatDesc in the localization.txt"/>-->
    <property name="DisplayType" value="apparelLabCoat"/> <!-- This shows in the stats portion of the window.  ui_display.xml -->

    <property name="CustomIcon" value="apparelLabCoat"/>
    <property name="CustomIconTint" value="57,57,57"/>
    <property class="UMA">
        <property name="Mesh" value="clothes_suit_jacket"/>
        <property name="Overlay0" value="unisex_clothes_suit_jacket"/>
        <property name="Overlay0Tint" value="29,29,33"/>
        <property name="Overlay1" value="unisex_clothes_suit_jacket_shirt"/>
        <property name="Overlay1Tint" value="85,74,96"/>
        <property name="Layer" value="3"/>
        <property name="Mask0" value="chest" param1="base"/>
    <property name="EconomicValue" value="499"/>
    <effect_group tiered="false">
        <passive_effect name="ModSlots" operation="base_set" value="1"/>
        <passive_effect name="ModPowerBonus" operation="base_add" value="100" tags="EconomicValue"/>
        <passive_effect name="AttributeLevel" operation="base_add" value="1" tags="attIntellect"/>
        <passive_effect name="CraftingTime" operation="perc_add" value="-.1"/>
        <passive_effect name="PlayerExpGain" operation="perc_add" value=".1"/>
        <display_value name="dCraftingTime" value="-.1"/>
        <display_value name="dPlayerExpGain" value=".1"/>


In the Output I see:

So it seems copy and paste has failed me.  When I used an existing .png, the icon had came up.  I did a copy and paste and for whatever reason, the icon will not show.  What tool is used to make or edit a png so the game can recognize the image?
