(I'm copying and pasting as I was told you guys would have more of a knowledge base and it'd be best posted here )
This is my first time on SL and my first time wanting to create something for it. I joined basically so i could do this as i think it's the coolest thing in the world right now.
As I tend to learn by asking and figuring out the basics. I have a few questions before I get into making my mesh.
Is there a specific poly limit?
What about size?
how does one rig the mesh, is there a default skeleton?
I want to make a humanoid with a tail, can the tail be included in the mesh?
I know i should use "Collada" (using blender) and export as .DAE but is there anything else format wise to be wary of? what about making weight maps and texture maps? Same as regular or are there constraints I should be wary of?
let me know, and if you have any links to useful tutorials and information send them my way
