Post tutorial RSS Rage Toolkit tutorials and updates

In this article, I discuss what I have been up to, and I upload a couple of screenshots of work done on a racing level, and one of the tutorials from the Rage Toolkit tutorial videos. Also included are links to a three part tutorial on how to use the Rage Toolkit and the basics of Idtech5 and the rage directory.

I've been extremely busy on developing this game, and in the last couple of weeks, I've accomplished some things worth noting:

- Studying the Rage engine

- Making tutorial videos

- Starting work on a racing level

- Compiling Icedtech MD6 exporter and fooling around with the models.

- Completion of a few weapon models in lightwave and a few new pieces of concept art around levels, weapons and much more. This will all be included in the next post.

- Creating a website.

However, in this post in particular, I wanted to give back to the community, and spread some of the knowledge I've been learning over the past little while. I've uploaded a few videos that give demonstrations of the features of the Rage toolkit and walk users through the locations of directories and then how to make a functioning map that uses assets from these directories in the form of lights, colored lights, models, sky, water, particles, and foliage.

In the next couple of videos after this, I will post tutorials on how to create terrain in lightwave import it, how to convert models to bm6, animate them, and use def files to connect textures. I will also demonstrate how to create a terrain file in common modelling programs and then we will be adding foliage and clipping to it in Megaedit.
