Title: The mapmodels thread
Post by: Neon_Knight on July 09, 2013, 06:20:15 AM
In regards to mapping, mapmodels are one of the most required assets for mapping, alongside textures. They can be created with GTKRadiant (the output is an .ASE file with the method), but the best MM are created with 3D editors, such as Blender.
