Hello, 3d noob here, just dl’d blender about a week ago & thought I’d use it to learn 3d graphics. I’ve been lurking around here all week & I must say I’m simply amazed by a lot of the work I see here. Thank you to all those who have helped create this wonderful tool
Anyway, I did the mars tut & came up with this:
Then I played around a bit & was able to create a basic space ship by extruding & manipulating faces from a basic cube. Which I placed in the previous scene:
That turned out well (althought the import/export thing gave me trouble) so I decided to try texturing it. I had trouble mapping the entire ship so I did only the cockpit:
I’ve since come to another impass trying to map the entire ship. In trying to again map the entire ship I’ve wound up with two maps in the window & my texture is showing on both of them. Most of all I have no idea how to empty the window & start the process over from scratch. I feel its just a matter of turning off or “unsetting” a few settings but I have no idea which ones.
any help is greatly appreciated!
anyway …I think I like this thing & I’ll keep practicing
