yea, and there is a very good one about the basics by Mike, its on his site and the link is in one of the threads here, forgot which one. but its very good.
also mate, check out the TAFE thing, week three is texturing and its dam good. I just learnt how to make and texture a woodland scene complete with fog, and it was dam easy and a guy with your skills will kill it. Your trouble is running before you walk, your good but there are basics you need to know, I don't, I know that so I do not start anything I can not finish. Anyway your model is great but slowly slowly, I'm a little surprised with the 'don't use' on your map but that might be a normal thing. many people have helped you. That doesn't mean I want your map (if I did I would clone the 'don't use ' out) LOL
take it easy and life will be easy
