    That is still one of the most ridiculous videos I've ever seen, whether or not it was really used as a training video.

    really nice end result.
    i just think that you went a bit to small with the paint strokes on the main body. i think fewer and bigger ones would look better. it looks quite busy with so many heavy contrast strokes, imo.
    but very cool in every other way !

    I'm using lightwave's PLG plugins. Specifically, the mesh reduction plugin, 2nd from the bottom. I spent a good chunk of time looking for non-lightwave related softwares that would generate reduced polygon meshes but keep the UV intact, and the very best results I had happened to be from the same set of plugins I use for unwrapping my UV meshes. But it's a lightwave only thing I'm afraid.

    Wow. You know, this is just perfect. I'm in the planning stages of a map that, in its current iteration at least, includes a loading dock, warehouse, or something of that ilk (when I say "planning stages", imagine the phrase in six-foot-high concrete letters). And while I knew it would eventually need a delivery truck of some kind, a forklift never would have dawned on me.

    This looks great. It's just the right size to hold the big crate prop, the texture meshes nicely with the other items in the world (especially said crate), and the little knob on the steering wheel is a nice touch; I didn't even know they had those.

    Huzzah!
