Basic Weapons Modelling.

Hello

Today I will be walking you through the wonderful world of modelling and compiling for half life 2.
This tutorial is targeted at 3dsmax users and half life 2 owners. however any basic game can benefit from these tutorials

I will walk you through basic modelling and uving
then making a low poly weapon model and a getting it skinned compiled and ingame.

In these tuts I will only ever cover 3DSMax because that's all I know.
So please DO NOT ask me about any other 3D applications.

Nice tutorials!
As for the codecs - the TSCC (TechSmith Capture Codec) codec is required for the video. Here is download link:

Nice TKAzA! The first time I tried dl them I got very bad dl speeds, so I dropped the issue. Now I've been watching you making drawers and its fun. An edge is an edge, right?!

Good stuff, I should have found them a long time before, though.

You say how about three draws, then they appear - it isn't explained how you make these three draws. This tutorial is meant to be the basics and you do things that the viewer can't see and thus mirror. I'm just starting out and I found it a bit brisk and quick for the absolute learner.

Are you NZ or Aus?

Good effort but confusing for me.
