Hey, everyone! There is both good news and bad news to this posting. The good news is that there are sooooo many generous 3D modelers out there who have made their fantastic work available for free download and even made it free to use in either commercial or non-commercial projects! I'd like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you who have made models available for use, it will be a big help in getting this game off the ground... and you helped make it happen! If you have requested credits, that is absolutely no problems at all, credit should be given where credit is due.
Then there is the bad news... In the past, I have used 3DS Max's UVW Unwrap to export a map of a 3D model so I know where to align the custom textures since I have been unable to get the textures to export with the .ase file that UDK needs for import. If anyone reading this knows what I am talking about and has a solution, that would include a way for 3DS Max to export a textured UVW map or have 3DS Max export textures so that UDK can import those textures, I would greatly appreciate any tips. Otherwise, I have some research to do, which is going to be my next step in this process, which I really hope works out as I found a really nice antique shop offered for free download, it would be perfect for the game, it just has a rather complicated UVW map.
