    No, not real cars, I was talking about the two car models that I started in Maya a long time ago.

    I once tried learning to model from 3D Buzz but I couldn't get anywhere. Their coding ones gave me a good insight into UnrealScript though.

    Steve how many polys is on that car cos if you could do, that er... thingy... top of the back of the car... can't remember what they're called now... needs a few extra polys to give it a better curve and that'll be closest to the camera so it's gonna be noticed more.

    If you are using Maya 4.5 or earlier you should really get the bonus game plugin set from the alias site, it has some handy tools for the uv editor.
    F12 is a handy shortcut for selecting uv's, or you can get to that through right clicking, then you can move them around just like a vert, but only in the texture editor.
    Under the Edit Polygons drop down menu there is a convert submenu. That is real handy for converting selected polys/edges/verts to a selection of uv's. With this you can select a whole bunch of polys, convert it to uv's then move that around in the texture editor.

    Hope this helps in some way. If you need any help drop me a private message. I sometimes only connect to the net to check email and don't always venture into the dark world of the internet...

    Thanks for the response model_citizen:) I am using Maya PLE 5. I have never actually "skinned" anything by laying out the UV's, I use the planar, cylindrical or spherical texturing tools; so this is very new to me.

    Excluding the wheels it's about 2700. I believe sVehicle will include the wheels on the model they are created with, and they are just under 400 each. I am glad you like it; I have looked at it for so long now all I can see are the flaws:p

    It's very very nice but maybe using a real indent on the sides instead of using a texture for it? Or would it be too many polys?

    looks good, Only thing I would say to fix up would be the Textureing it seems alittle low rez but good job. I am at the stage where i have to start textureing and I have no idea.

    Sorry carmatic, I don't know what the problem is. Can you see my prior screen shots? I am using Internet Explorer version 6.0.2800.1106.

    which prior screen shots?

    the warning-type sign at the bottom left corner of IE says an 'object expected' error of some sort, cant be bothered to type the whole line of stuff down

    om hy gosh when i right click on the selected things in IE , theres an option to 'isearch the web'
    dang dang dang not this stupid isearch thing again now what nasty thing did i download hmm the last thing i remember downloading was the ut2k4 patch hmmm but i also downloaded 3 internet clocks so it might be one of them either way its really sucking me and im really sleepy im just gonna run ad aware or something and hope for the best

    hm ad aware didnt catch anything, and when i click on 'isearch the web' it doesnt do anything, i try to run regclean, it doesnt show anything wrong, im a noob, im helpless, im sleepy...must have been a remnant from when i actually had isearch, and it just means that the time to reformat my computer is getting closer and close (thank goodness ive already moved stuff onto an external hard disk) bah gettin off topic, anyway , it will certainly be a nicer surprise when i actually get to see the car in unwheel
