    Ok,

    Since I've seen a lot of such topics here in offtopic, I've thought to start one as well. Ok, the subject is obvious. What's your modding speciality? Is it Terraining, Cinematic, Spellmaking, Iconing, Modelling, Skinning, Concept Artist, or other? Also, mention why did you choose it and since when were you involved into this subject?

    I'll start. My modding speciality is Spellmaking. I've been making spells since 2004 summer. I got involved into spellmaking because I think that spells are something logic, and clear, not something relative like arts, models or icons. They are concise and still leave your creativity free to improve them.

    Have fun!

    Mapping. I'm a long-time RTS mapper. Ever since Red Alert 1.

    Hopefully modeling will be my second soon.

    Skinning. Since november 2004 i think, but i stopped because i got myself enchanted with modeling. so i tryed to model and guess what.....im still trying!

    its not that my models are crappy, its just the big bad animation problem, i simply cannot animate and that is a problem

    anyways, im back to skinning and im trying to improve both of my skills (that might take a while since i'm very busy now)

    A have made spells since the unprotected ETS was released but first after I joined this site it became my real modding speciality. I have always wished I could make models but it requires to many expensive/hard to find programs and is hard to learn.

    No :D

    Find any good free modeling software (like Gmax), find some tuts, then search for exporting scripts, an voila! That's what you need.

    its not dificult, but you have to persevere a lot to do good models, animate them and export and import them properly

    Gmax dont have an exporting script i think, go in Kazaa or eMule and download 3DSMax 5, then get the DeX Script

    Donno what with importing script, but it has exporting script. Just search.

    About Kazaa/Emule... =F I'm against pirating... But i know pro software is not available for us, at least me, so... 2 applications I ever haven't buy legally are: Corel Graphics Suite 12 and Delphi 7 Enterprise.

    :( Unfortunatly, I cannot pay for it.

    Mapping. I can both of them if I must have it in my map, except modeling/skinning/artworking/musicmaking. Everything else, spellmaking, trigerring, terraining, etc. I can handle if I need it. ;)

    Modeling- as many of you are aware of.

    And mapping- which probably none of you are aware of because i don't submit my maps :p
