Ok yeah.. How do I make foxholes or shell or mortar holes?

Everybody keeps saying to use mapping tools.. How is that supposed to help me :D

Anywyas. If someone could point me to a GOOD tutorial (didnt see any on mardymouse or snarkpit) It would be greatly appreciated

or If they could give me a in depth description that would be nice as well

thank you very much

It basically looks like this attachment. You make a bunch of triangles that slope towards the middle. This particular one is a bit squared, but some look better with more of a rounded outside edge. Also, be sure to keep the angle of the slope low enough that you can still fluidly walk over it.

lol that really helped. Just made a square clipped it into triangles and used vertex manipulation to make all the points meed in the middle. Suggested height for a fox hole by any cahnce?

also know any textures that would look good for both the sides and bottom of the hole?
