Blend and Stretch

21st September, 2008

no more headache 😀

Stumble can jog your memory. Blender came up on a recent stumble.  This is an open source (and free) 3D development software that’s very similar to 3D Max etc.

What’s the relevance?

Well I intend learning this so I can create meshes for UED4.  I have a good working knowledge of Photoshop so textures shouldn’t be a problem.  Of course anything I make I’ll put up for download.  I love learning new things like this.  If I hadn’t become hooked on stumble I’d have never found it.

I’ll concentrate more on the map and get that finished but it’s nice to have a constructive distraction.

Remember that you don’t need to learn anything other than the editor to create maps.

Non-ut related link is this rather unique flash game.

I felt I needed somewhere to devlog what I’m doing with UED4. Also somewhere to talk about the gaming culture in general. Bear with me as I settle in to the new site.

I’ve added links to my old maps. These link directly to the map’s Filefront download page. There you’ll be able to see screenshots and comment on them as well if you want.

The map I’m working on at the moment is DM-Quatro08 for UT3. It’s an updated version of one of my old maps for the original UT.
