texturespace wasteage D: the treetrunk doesn't need any alphas. so why is it on the same texture? why did you leave so much space unused? remove the white parts of the colormap (slecet by color range) and replace them with a green.

I'm gonna make a simple top down racing game (think Mashed/Micro Machines) for my uni networking project, so it follows that I'd need a car or two. And so at long last, I cracked open 3dsmax and made a decent effort to learn how to use the thing. I followed a tutorial on box modelling a car to get used to the tools then broke away from it as I didn't want it so hi-poly, nor looking TOO much like a Nissan 300zx :D

Any comments and suggestions welcome. Polycount is currently 292 (602 tris), and the only significant additional modelling work I'm planning is to put in the back wheel arches and add some depth to the rear bumper.

Oh, and a question. There is a horrible seam down the middle of the car where the cloned side meets the original side. I figure I have to weld the vertices together, but my attempts to do so don't seem to make any difference to anything. Is there some trick involved or something?

dabbling in max + working on my texturing skillz (yo)

First thing I thought of looking at that was the grimier bits of the x-men legends games, and not in a bad way. Looks like something that might fit well into a similar type of game, especially as a level prop for an isometric sort of thing... Maybe not what you're aiming for, though :X

Updated the car, and now finished with the modelling I think. I'm tempted to improve the sides by modelling in the windows, but given that this is for a top down racing game, I can't help but feel I've already used too many polys. Currently stands at 480 polys / 1010 tris. Max rocks the socks off Milkshape - I have seen the light :)

EDIT: Oh yeah, the images :D
