Using Blender For RA2
« on: February 09, 2020, 11:02:36 AM »
As Blender is free on Steam, it's ideal for me to use for creating meshes for RA2 which is something I've wanted to do since forever. Problem is, I have no idea what I'm doing on it apart from making various sized square or boxes.
Can anyone give me tips on how to use Blender and create Arenas?

I'm going to stick with sketchup for now and see if I can make an arena

its literally the same principles across all cad programs

all that matters is knowledge on gmfs/pys

and you're still going to need more than just sketchup since iirc it can't triangulate/uv map on its own

I've seen videos that you need to import sketchup models into blender and triangulate them which isnt a problem, I find Blender hard to create things in at the minute so I'm using sketchup to make the arena models
