Re: Spacecraft

Cool ship! Have you thought of creating a tutorial? It will give we, shall we say, less talented noobs the skill and confidence to do our own.

Many thanx for the sample. Great job!!

Re: Spacecraft

Tony,

Hmmm. Interesting concept. A 2D image in a 3D world. I think you may be right. If the object was far enough away, who would care if it were 2D or 3D? Great thought. I will give it a try. Many thanx.

Re: Spacecraft

Thank you, squire. Your blood's worth bottling!

I have used Gimp quite a bit (not yet fully proficient) but have never learned how to use it to paint models. Hence my request.

Re: 2.7.1 will not start

Hirato, The shortcut, apart from the directory name of sandbox, for 2.7.1 is exactly the same as for 2.61 and 2.7.0 I executed "./sandbox_unix" (without quotes) directly from console from with the directories of 2.61 and 2.7.0 and they started without a problem. However, not so, for 2.7.1....

2.7.1 will not start

Downloaded 2.7.1 multiplatform, as I run with Linux, and it will not start. For versions 2.6 and 2.7 all I had to do was to create a short cut on the desktop and modify the properties. /john/PlatinumArtsSandbox2.6/sandbox_unix -qmy_stuff and the same format for 2.7 and both ran without a hitch. Modi...

Re: Spacecraft

Justanother1,

I tried to run Tattoo, but unfortunately, Tattoo is one of those programs that will not run properly. I will continue to search for a compatible texturing program. I will let you know how I go. May be useful for other Linux users.

Re: Spacecraft

Justanother1, Thank you for the link (now added to bookmarks) and you suggestions for Wings3D. I think Wings3D will require an application like Tattoo to create the textures. This appears to be a windows program. Although I have Blender and Wings3D installed, I am a Linux user. But, I have downloade...
