shadow Tyne Posted July 12, 2011 Share Posted July 12, 2011 I've only managed to build something once. I made a dragon head that wound up being 30 prims. It gave you a cookie with you touched it. :D It was very simple and a little ugly made comepletly with SL basic prims.The current model I'm trying to make is a horse that will shift it's limbs, bob it's head, and flick it's tail. I've seen one way where it has all it's limbs attached but some are invisible?Now I want to make something a little more complex. Figuring my prevous success in a CAD program through a class would give me a good enough start I could start making sculpted prims. So a trip to the internet and I now have two programs. One is Blender 2.5a for 64 bit Windows. The second is I guess one made specially for easy building for games. Called Curvey 3D.Next I tried looking at other 3D models to see what they did. I see the polygon one (I think thats what it's called) and I started with Curvy 3D. The problems I've encountered so far.My lines aren't steady enough. There is no button for a straight line maker? The wiggly lines are making divits in the prims. The instant rotation is a little annoying. Is there a way to toggle that off? Where is the straight line tool? DxSuddenly went from 'auto rotate' to making a cylinder around the line I draw. What?Doing from front view or perspective view when I add a face to attach to the side view it is made like.. Worlds away from the actual face. Can't seem to move it. Ugh.At this point my patience runs out and I swtich to Blender. I checked a youtube video for 'how to' and this guy took a picture and like.. Traced it and then the modle became 3D when he started adding faces. That looks like a good way, so I find a tutorial and try to follow it, but it doesn't work. Problems I have aarreI can't rez any base objects. Where is the scew and uh.. morph.. I can draw but it doesn't do anything.So many buttons. X_X I have no idea what any of them does. Am I missing a special version? Why can't I do what that guy did? All the Tuts I find seem to be outdated. From here I can't do anything because I can't make anything and I've been screwing with the buttons and nothign is productive. So... Anyone think they can help me? At this point I'm about ready to pull out my hair. Online tutorials are proving to be either outdated or complex and hard to understand. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
