i've made my first ship (on my own), but i don't know how to make proper textures and i def don't know how to attach them correctly to my ship
I'm not very good at making my own textures yet, but I could tell you how to apply them to a model. I can put together a tutorial for texturing in 3ds max 4.
thanx man, i'd appreciate that, i can put material on a ship, but i can't designate it to a single part, (i can't make a strip of the nacelles blue without giving the rest of the ship the same color
I just finished my tutorial. Here it is.
well tricorder, it's a great tut (if you know your way round 3ds) only it won't work for my ship :(
why won't it work for your ship?
i haven't got a clue, the first part works, i can get it onto the top saucer section, but i can't edit it (turn the pic around, i could do it wiht your ship though)
You mean you can't select the vertices and move, rotate, or scale them?
nope, (i used your textures on it, it should work perfectly,didn't have to look prefect, it was just a test) you got e-mail or something, cause if you do, i might be able to send you my file, so you can try and tell me what i did wrong
