Default Re: Alien Resurection:Betty

Sure I can, It was a struggle to get the textures look Ok on the thrusters without it looking to warped. Much because of the shape and the fact that you have the stripes as well. So I colored the sides and top and so in different colors, and that way I could split the uvs apart and push them around like a puzzle. The most important was the top and sides, so I had to get the angle on the thruster as straight as possible when setting the uvs as top and side. The more angled the object is when doing the uv mapping, the more difficult it is to get good uvs. It took some trial and error to connect the top and side uvs, but I managed to get it Ok in the end.
