How do I take and use the default textures to use in 3d modelling programs?
What are you trying to do? From a legal standpoint you may be in a very grey area, which is likely why you haven’t gotten any responses.
This. Are you trying to export the mesh to add custom textures or trying to modify the existing textures in ark.
For instance, if you are trying to recolor something, you can export the graphic texture file, tweak rgb in photo-editor, then reimport. You would use this method if you were trying to say… Recolor an exiting item/texture (make a ‘blue’ colored tanq arrow )
