I’ve spent the past 3 days searching this forum and looking the every manual I can put my hands on, but I’m missing something crucial. I’m trying to follow David Wards ‘Creating an Island’ tutorial on BlenderCookie, and we’ve gotten to the bit where he’s doing the waves, and I see him bring up a menu of brushes in Texture Paint, which I don’t have:
Try opening blender, check the brushes are there, if not File/Load Factory settings. Then append the scene into the new blend file.
This can happen if you created the original blend in an old version of blender
