Yeah np! (:
Also of note for everyone (I just told eric this the other day, sorry for not 
mentioning it earlier)
Texture sizes have to be in dimensions that are powers of 2 (ie 256x256, 
1024x1024, 512x128 etc are ok... 640x480, 55x90 are not)
The reason for that is that older or less high end cards don't support non 
power of 2 textures, and the work around to make it work on such cards uses a 
lot more video memory (which those types of cards are already low on).

So yeah, we just have to make sure all textures have image sizes which are 
powers of 2 (but they dont have to be square)

Hey Katie thats a nice lookin mine cart!

You said you had textures for it too?

ms3d files dont embed their textures inside of the file but if you send them 
over i'll toss one of these into the cave map (:

Hey Guys,

Here is a Rail Car model w/textures. I ran it through Milkshape and it looks 
like it keeps the textures in tact.

Here it is attached.

Let me know what you guys think and if there is more I can help with. Otherwise 
I was just thinking I'd work on misc models and see where I get.

Thanks =)

im hoping it'll work with maya, autodesk products seem to move to milkshape 
better so my fingers are crossed :)

Probably have thought of this already, but you could setup material properties 
that have a luminosity/glow effect for the object itself. Maya allows you to do 
this. =)

thats funny eric
hey if you ever want to do shiny gems, a cool effect might be placing a gem 
colored positional light inside of a gem like its giving off a secondary glow.
it might be too expensive an effect to use everywhere but shrug (:

yeah in the first cart i made, i had jewels that sparkled but had texturing 
issues, i also like the idea of the cave being filled with 
gems/diamonds/crystals but filling the carts up with rocks like they are just 
mining the stone haha

I like the proposed art here, having those diamonds to just place
around would give the cave a great feel of prettiness.
