Hey Guys,
Another question, does anyone know much about MIP mapping? I get the general 
concept of what it is/what it does, but I am wondering if it is applicable in 
our situation, or in what situation/game it would be applicable...
Gonna google it too, but any info you guys have would be much appreciated. Its 
always better from a artists point of view. =)

Hey Katie,

Currently I'm upgrading the editor but after that I'll be moving back to 
graphics land and upgradin our graphics.
Milkshape supports NO maps.
Our game however currently supports normal maps (doesnt look like it should 
cause it needs an upgrade but it works).
For now we (Kent or I) have to set up the loading level script to apply the 
normal maps to an object (which is no problem, nothin to worry about there)
In the future, you'll be able to apply the normal map from the editor.
Now because you are asking about other kinds of maps like specular maps, YEP we 
can do those!
The game doesnt currently support them but specular maps for one should be not 
too hard so feel free to use them (:

Hey Guys,
I was wondering about what kind of maps the game/milkshape supports, IE. bump, 
specular, normal maps.
Let me know what you know and limitations your aware of.
Thinking about learning/playing with normal and specular maps, but thinking 
probably only bumps are going to be supported for now...
Wishful thinking, some fun ideas in mind. =)
