Complex UV Layout in Maya
Over the last couple of years UV layout in Maya has changed for the better. In this course we're going to be taking a look at some of those changes as we UV map an entire character

Hey, the carriage frame is still in good shape. I think it could be recycled. Nice aged look on the textures. Maybe some transparency mapping to create nicks and chips off the edges?

ahh sweet idea.. something i forgot was to do the chips out of the wood. I already have a trasparency map on it to get some of the aged looks, so i think i will split some faces and take them out that way.
thanks for the reply user added image

Heres a update. im going to make some old barb wire to go in the back of the buggy or on the ground.

Is the background a rock or mountain. If it's mountain, you might blur it to set it "back" farther. The stone wall looks good, but it's hard to get a sense of its scale. To me it looks kind of like a garden retaining wall.

question: won't spliting faces mess with the UV coordinates and thus distort the texture?
