I learned drafting on paper after I graduated from High School. Dont feel to bad! Take a look at some of your local community colleges. You would be surprised to see just HOW MANY offer classes in 3D modeling now a days. Last year I took a class to learn Maya for $40!

P.S. I hated Maya. :lol:

I can cover whats called "null smoothing" in IL2 to help smooth out doors. It uses invisible polygons. I will add that to the list.

As for downloading it, I will see what I can do. I dont have the bandwidth on my own server to host it. If I can find a good file host, I will. I use Youtube simply because of the comments and annotations.

More on smoothing groups, please, please, please...

Great tutorial Gibbage :!:

Your valuable time is appreciated.....

If you could find the time it would be nice if you could whip up a beefy little spinning prop for IL2 (instead of trying to show us clowns how to do it :idea:). The flat spinning disc is a bit of a let down.

Would be forever grateful :wink:

I am sure some other talented modder could figure a way of getting it into the game if you did not want to consume your time on the nitty-gritty details.... :wink:
