Re: Using SymLinks under Windows.

I have heard of symlinks before but never used them. any chance of a quick how to? Under Windows click on start menu/run then type cmd and enter to get a command prompt in a black window, where you can type something like this (please chage the directory names to point where your files are): mklink...

Thanks, it wasnt my intent to derail the thread with a discussion of political ideals. Franky i abstained after my initial question because after trying to read the WI...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

the idea at this stage is to do that in the texture/image wrap. i think at this stage i just want to see it fly. any tweaking could be done later. ok as i just found out the ship has to fly along the Z axis so here is the model duly rotated and also the center line adjusted. correct orientated model...

Re: My Space 1999 homage to the Eagle transporter [WIP]

Hey Spud I just noticed in your screenshot that your ship is aligned along the x axis, ships fly along the z axis so your current model would fly sideways. You will need to rotate it around the y axis. Its a little old, but, there is some really good info on uv mapping in this thread. Shipbuilder h...
