Default finally an update!

Sorry I havent updated for a while I'm having trouble burning stuff to CD and I didnt have an internet connection at home.

So here we are then:

I have decided to make the bug a light attack vehicle mainly due to a complete lack of inspiration as far as weaponry goes. I really couldnt figure out a nice looking solution. If I can then I could have different variants of the mech e.g. transport, heavy attack, light attack etc.

Done a bit of texturing I'm not the best at this sort of thing so any ideas are welcome.

The WASP still rocks though!!!

Hi, Guys

I haven´t had any chance at all to update the showcase, I promise you guys will have it updated for tomorrow. (Formatting my machine).

Anyway,

BulletProof: This is one good looking mech you´ve got now, especially that metallic look you gave it on the desktop image. I believe you do have a talent for it. Excellent Entry mate!
Animating it perhaps?

Pure_Morning: Another great entry, I´m happy seeing this one being textured. Do you intend to rig it?

Babyduck: Excellent, keep on it!

To everyone else, we are exactly at the middle of the month. I suggest you guys finish modelling soon, if not finished yet, to give chance to texture and lighting phases and such.

Regards all ...

BulletProof: Are you using a GI Joe type lighter or is it a three point lighting kind of thing?

ok quick question for you guys: I have some NURBS tubes on this model and I want to change them to polygons so that I can combine them with the leg to create one object. So I go to modify>>convert>> NURBS to Polygons. And all this seems to do is create a new copy of the tube whether or not it's polygon I'm not sure. So i try to delete the original tube and then move the polygon one into place to combine but as soon as I delete the nurbs one both tubes dissapear! Help?!

Oh and I have got the main rig in place as well (But As i know NOTHING about rigging it will probably all go a bit Pete Tong on me!!! )

Sound like your history button was enabled at the time of creation of the converted surface.

Kill history from the main menu. (I think its under "modify")

Delete other-->History (or something like that)

Or convert nurbs-surface to polys without history button on.
