Default Anyone here good with Texture Mapping?

Since FFXI DATs server sucks and seems to crash when I need help. I may as well post it here until they're back up...

I recently am trying for a new project someone requsted for a new elemental staff set. However I'm in a bit of a bind. I thought I'd try to make my own orb to put on the staff, however the mapping is f*cked up no matter what I try.

Anyway, here's the texture I'm using for the dark staff orb.



And this is what it looks like in MV/AV



Anyone wanna try to fix it?

the UV looks fine... the only thing I am noticing in the .DAT is the extra texture for the main part of the staff and that the texture for the orb is not the same as the one you have in your OP.

About the only thing I could suggest is maybe HQing the orb texture.

Maybe, but it seems like a 64x64 should be fine though.

Just not sure what you are trying to get on the orb... maybe if you marked up the texture might be of more help... right now as you see it, the texture is wrapped around the orb.

Well, the texture doesn't seem like it fits to me... it's too light grey IMO.

haha well this sites no different it can crash too, fortunantly though... I've got it set to where I can personnaly, reboot this server and make it work (unless something seriously went wrong like database corruption etc) although its a bit more extra $ to do, its better then waiting hours/days for a tech to do something!
