Welcome, DarkCrow. To start, the main program is UPaint (located on CD6 in the Extras folder). With that, you can make many great skins. Then you have the apis to create models (you will need to have skills on object-oriented programming). There is Maya (which is also on the CD6 but requires you to register online) and 3d Studio Max (one of the most used). After all that I recommend you to install Photoshop because it's THE tool to make good textures.

Hope this helps you, see you soon.

Welcome aboard DarkCrow - you can also use MilkShape 3D for modelling and I'd recommend a look as it's far easier to use than 3D Studio (shareware - just look for it in a search engine) - I shelled out mega bucks for 3D Studio a year ago and still can't understand most of it so although it's the best it's also the hardest to learn.

Maya which is on the DVD saves you really getting anything else although I don't know much about it.

Other than that Helios was spot on :D

No offense, Klasnic, but Milkshape is terrible for me. It has crashed my machine 10 times before I can get loaded a model... Well, my "3DStudio Adventures" are going to the abyss... I can't even know where is the tool bar... And for Maya, didn't try to register with my modem...
It's just not my day...

Hope DarkCrow came back soon to tell us how is it going.
