Try to unwrap this guy with milkshape. It´s a great program...but the uv mapping is limited. I unwrapped my hilt with Lithunwrap...worked pretty good so i thought i´d share.:)
Inyri ForgeHow easy UVW mapping is depends on the skill of the modeller. Some folks are good at it and others aren't -- I've had models that were easy to map, and then I've had models that were more difficult. It usually just takes practice.
thats exactly right. if a model is built wrong/badly (there isnt really a wrong way... just not good ways... :P) then itll be harder to unwrap. just like a well built model will be easyer :)
