You need a 3d modelling software, you can find links for those softwares in the tutorials sticky thread http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=193637 Milkshape 3d is extremely easy to learn and use, but I would not recommend it because it is not good if you want to move into bigger projects, such as character modelling, unless you simply want to model a lightsaber or weapons in which case is good enough.
i have adobe photoshop CS2 for my modeling, with pacskape,modview etc. but right now i wanna try making swords and different episode 3 guns
which ones do i download> its quite complicated at that part.do i just get em all?
erm...? whats a skin then?
wait i know now... a model is a 3D character created from scratch. a skin would be a new "look" on a model. thanks for helping me realize that. but then what would be the best thing to use for modeling?

For guns and sabers/swords, you can use [COLOR=blue]Gmax[/COLOR]. Despite common belief it IS still available for download, and it's free. Alternately, you can try XSI Mod Tools. Link is in the tutorials thread. XSI works for player modelling too. MilkShape 3D is indeed good, the downloaded version is only a 30-day trial though, and I personally don't feel it's worth the registration cost when it's a souped-up Gmax. 3DS Max is probably the best modelling software you'll get hold of, but it has a professional pricetag. Somewhere in the region of $3000-$4000, depending on where you buy it.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
thanks. also i just opened my milksape and it said : you have not registered your copy, and it will expire in 31 days. doesnt that mean i have to pay for it, and i had only gotten a free trail? V_V
