Hi,

I figured it might help some modders interested in participating in the Weapon Modelling Contest if I made a tutorial. So I'm currently doing that. I'll show you how to create a weapon (starting with a saber because they're easy to do) in the freeware Blender using its current version 2.6a.

Tutorials done so far:

Setup - how to install Blender, the MD3 Exporter and any other tools you might need (ModView, MD3View (less bugs edition)) setting a background, navigation - setting a background image in blender and moving the camera modelling - one way of creating models using Blender - note that this isn't always the most appropriate way, but it worked well in this case UV-mapping & texturing - a brief intro in giving the model a texture Export - I show you how to prepare & export the weapon and find a bug in the exporter.

I'm open for comments and suggestions.

So long, Mr. Wonko

I'll wait to provide feedback until you've posted the actual modeling tutorials, since I can't really comment on Blender itself. Not sure why you didn't wait to post them til you finished them all, but to each their own.

M.Eales already has his model done and just needed the exporter set up so I figured he'd profit from me getting the setup tutorial up ASAP.

And the modelling part is already done, I'm just waiting for the youtube video to be processed.

The next part of the video is online - uv mapping/texturing - and youtube thinks me talking is actually copyrighted content. Wtf? If you have any problems viewing just wait a little, I've already flagged it as a false positive.

The final part is up. Just under 2h total. Did run into a few problems every now and then... But did not want to re-record.
