Surfing with the Alien - Missing his Surfboard
Hi I'm working my way through the Surfing with the Alien tutorial by Jay (see my Work in Progress post) but I've run into a slight problem. In part twelve 21:38 Jay imports a scene file called surfboard.mb into his scene which has the image planes set up and ready. However I can't find them in the tutorial files and scenes that I've downloaded. Is this missing or am I just missing where it is? Thanks in advance.

Also interested in getting my hands on the checker-map that Jay uses when UVing the model. I had a shot at creating one myself but it just doesn't work as good.

You can just google for UV checker texture, there's lots. Or you can use the one I made which is obviously the best (jk, kinda). I'd point you to it, but my site is down cause Mississauga is without power and everything is flooded.
