Hello. :)

I have recently begun modelling with Milkshape. I was having a great time creating a model for "Luke's Speeder", an over-used object to model. Then I hit a speed bump which I'm struggling to get over.

1. How do I change .ms3d to .md3? :confused:

Oh yes, one more thing. I was looking at the help files, and I was trying to texture my speeder, so I divided it into key parts. Then, I opened up good old Photoshop and put a few textures for top bottom and sides on it, tried to make it as small as the example picture, and tried it out on Milkshape.

Of course, it didnt work. :Puzzled:

2. I know the picture has to be a "power of 2", or something like that, but can someone either explain what a "power of 2" is, or what size to make the picture.

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Time2Die :rofl:

I can answer question 2. Open your computers calculator. There sould be a exponent button, looks like ^. To get the powers of two, you would do 2^1, 2^2, 2^3, 2^4, 2^5 and so on. These are the numbers you can make your images, nothing but these numbers will work.

So.. I know about powers of two, but how do I make an IMAGE a power of 2?

Has anybody else ever modelled with Milkshape? Inyri, I've seen some of your work. What program do you use?

Uhhhh. Same way you make one thats not a power of 2. Just when you make the image, you size it that way. I'm not sure what you mean.
