Post tutorial Report RSS SDK and 3D modeling/animation tutorials

Links to SDK and 3D modeling tutorials. I did not make these tutorials, credit goes for the makers. I linked some russian videos too, because even foreign language videos can show much-much more, what can't be described by a wall of text. I will edit this article with more stuff, as i will have more time and when i find more tutorials. If someone have links to more tutorials, make a message in the comments section below the article, and i will include it in the article.

Nice reminder and knoledge sources.
Thanks Yoda.

Ps: I was wondering about the SoC setup and compatibility too. I'll see if something can be done with it.

It's the same method, like the old tutorial how to run SOC SDK on Windows 7. Probably it will not help with CoC SDK crashes on Win10.

I know that.
It's just it sounds like a last chance. Something to try before definitely give up.

Update:

So, as the Microsoft Compatibility Administrator Tool isn't working on Win10x64 (1709), I had to use the Windows ADK ( Docs.microsoft.com ).

I tried many settings (starting from the one for SoC SDK, tried also Win7 and Vista) without getting rid of my problem.

Then, I created an ADK fix for the LE with this :
Imgur.com

I can open the maps (l08, l13 for instance) again.
The log is still getting mad and I have to select "continue" at opening the maps but the LE isn't crashing anymore. \o/
And so, maybe I'll give a touch to 3D objects (and only that) again. At least I can check the volumes. ^_^'

Funnily (Thanks MS), this tool is doing what the embedded compatibility mode of Win10 is supposed to do, but failed (at least for me).

Nice. Just hope that moddb moderators would not delete this due to low traffic or something similar. This kind of thing would not become obselete for some time.

Free time is important, especially because there are almost only russian video tutorials out there. I could use russian videos in the past without knowing the language.

Hi, I'm trying to look at some objects from a different mod, specifically Narodnaya Solyanka 2016. One of the weapons I want to look at has other dependencies like scope addons and some weird lense effect that is bugged. How do I setup the LA SDK for a different SoC mod? Thanks, and cheers.
