Mini Thompson Help

07-26-2004, 02:31 PM
Reposting this as a request from someone to get this finished.

I've got this mini thompson I modelled and I don't know how to compile, mesh, or altogether finish. Basically all I did was make the model in MS3d and can't get past that. It has no bones or UV maps, just the bare ms3d model.

I've tried to understand some tutorials on compiling and meshing to no avail, I still don't get it. I'd like it (as well as some other people) if this model could be finished and released.

The file has been attached.

YAY. Please someone compile and UV map this. I want to use this tommy so bad. It looks real nice and I'm sure skinners will have a good time skinning something new. Instead of the same old m1a1 tommy.

No UV Map No Skin because the skinners will have no idea were to put what texture!

....actually it's not that they "don't know where to put the texture" it's "you can't put the texture on it". The whole texture would just be stretched so much you would think the texture is a solid color

Haha I just took a whack at making it. And wow, I must say. Its pretty hard but people with experience should do this in no time. Please finish this someone.

Badkarma has agreed to uv map it.

07-31-2004, 10:25 PM
But the hardest thing that no one wants to do is the applying the bones and animations. ICK...its a beast to do.

07-31-2004, 11:47 PM
I'm fully aware of that... which is why it isnt done. :mad:
