I'm new here so first of all howdy everyone! I'm thinking of learning modeling (actually I already started) and I while playing WW I got the idea why not try to make a winchester rifle. I'm not saying I'm experienced or overly skillful, but if I manage to make a decent model I'll be glad to send it over to you fellows for "review" and possibly even use. (And yes, I've got 2 much spare time :cool:) But since I'm new some questions: -can models be made with Maya? -can they include nurbs or do they have to be polygon only? -what would I have to do once I get the model (as much as I can) done? -any tips?

Welcome Tuco!

Thanks for your support!

I'm not familiar with maya. Hewster recommends that models be made with GMax. However any modeler that can save in an MD3 or ASE format will work. After that it is up to you to get it to the most optimized state your model program can achieve.

Be aware that moddeling is not for the faint of heart. But if you are willing to put the work into it, there is always a job out there for ya!

Good luck and again Welcome!

As said, nothing special, but it's my first try of modelling anything w/o step-by-step instructions. Some things are missing, but I'm gonna add them ASAP. Also, I think I'll shorten the butt of the gun (it's not as big as it looks in this perspective but anyways. More pictures coming soon. Still WiP rifle.jpg

NICe Tuco I'm actually trying to skin right now, if I can find some spare time. But in a few weeks I've got holidays so I'll work on some skins then, just for fun, see if you use them, i'll try to make a female wildwest skin or something. But for sofar tuvo's rifle looks nice, just ad a few details and it's awesome!

I've had a go at modeling myself, and can't do it. I'm into mapping at the moment, made a start on my first map. There is something i would like in the map if someone could possibly do for me. I would like a cannon. If anyone can do one, it would be very much apprectated. :)

cannon? I can try. I guess it'd be easier than a rifle, since there's not so many details there. I think I'll do that be4 the rifle since it's needed ;) Btw, if you could supply me with some pictures of what the cannon should look like... Just hope that maya md3 export plugin will work :\ Else I'll need 2 another proggies to export/import/export stuff.

Btw, should the cannon be animated in any way or static just for show? Cos I dunno how to animate anything (yet). Basic form gun.jpg
