I don't think there is a simple, short way of telling everything essential in the tutorial, if that's what you mean. I recommend you download the whole tutorial if you're interested in what's taught in it.

well, gee, we have a two-step method to making fabulous meshes but we're just not releasing it to the general public

you're gonna have to go through a lot more trouble than downloading a little tutorial before you can make a mesh
this and JWoods' tutorial is as easily as you're gonna get

Yeah, I know a little how to use blender a I know a lot about 3ds max and up to this moment, I recognized that 3ds max is a lot easier than Blender, but Blender is a lot better, so use blender, it is really better

and these tutorials that he passed really help

congrats, Lethe_s

Spectic, then you should get WinRAR , or some other program that can open WinRAR. WinRAR can be downloaded here, and, for example, 7-Zip can also open rar files.

I've never heard of 3d canvas, but if you are able to export .obj files with it, it could work
also, considering the tutorial is, I think 30-something pages long, posting it in html is really not an option
as IB said, just get WinRAR, it will make your life much easier anyway

Maybe, if you really feel like sitting and waiting for a reply when you could type "blender 3d" into Google and have results instantly.

There should also be a link in the tutorial once you download and open it.

First of all...this tutorial has helped me a lot, so thanks for that....The only thing I get stuck on is the UV mapping.

My screen doesn't really look like yours...I can't find: ''LSCM Unwrap''.

When I did the other tutorial (JWoods' Start to Finish) I did the UV Mapping with that ''UV Mapper programe'', so can I do that bit with the UV Mapper instead of the part in Blender....?
I hope you get what I mean.....

of course you can do the mapping with UV Mapper I'm just offering an alternative in this tutorial
to find LSCM Unwrap, though, you just press 'u' in the uv face select window
you'll get a list of choices (just like when you press spacebar)

This is great! Thank you so much!
I took a 3D class in my high school where we used Lightwave 8.0, and as a result I couldn't deal with the interface offered by Wings 3D, and as a college student the thought of being able to afford even Milkshape, let alone Maya or 3Ds Max, was a bit of a laugh, but Blender was still driving me up a wall with my inability to find the correct viewports!
Now at last I can start working on my own custom content!

Contemplating making Golden Sun stuff for TS2.

it stands for Simple Package Editor or The Sims 2 Package Editor
all you have to do is google it or do one of the dozens of tutorials that explain exactly what it does

Default uvmapping issue
Hello. I just wanted to say that this tutorial has been very helpful. It took me hours to get through it and I've finally reached the uvmapping stage and I'm having a few problems. First off, there's nothing that says LSCM Unwrap under my UV Calculations and so I pressed "U" like you said and just plain "unwrap" is a choice but no LSCM. So I clicked the unwrap anyways cause that's all I could find. When I go to the UV Image Editor my screen looks nothing like yours. I know it's supposed to have all the shelves all squished and then we go on to fix that but I don't even have that. All I have is that lighter grayish square completely covered in blue. I was really confused but I went on to see if doing the next step would help and it doesn't at all so I'm not sure what to do. I've gone back several times and redid steps leading up to that but nothing is working. I was wondering if you had any suggestions.

I belive I have finished my mesh perfectly, the only thing I am having problems with the UV Mapping. I load my model into UV mapper classic, then export the uvs. It exports as a .uvs file. But when I go to map it, it wont work- paint nor photoshop supports this file extention...So, I tried again, this time I saved the texture map instead of exporting it, and the file extension was jpg. I applied the texture to my map and when I tried to import it back into the program, it only imports .uvs and .obj files. When I import it anyway I get the message "Incompatable Facet Structure" I have tried to map it with other programs, same problem.

Im totaly stumped, can you help me?

Default Blender
Has anyone used blender for body meshes? I know you can do objects with it (although my tutorial table had funky legs on it - still trying to figure that one out). I know from looking at Blender's web page you can do all kinds of things, the gallery shots are awesome, but wondering if anyone has done a tutorial for body meshing using Blender yet? I don't mod enough to make buying Milkshape an option, and I found Blender to be more functional for multiple things moreso than Wings 3d.

the problem with blender is it doesn't support smd files, which are needed for the animation of body and hair meshes.
I believe there's been talk of a plugin for ages, but untill there actually is one, no bones can be assigned in blender.
