Just started in the morning on my new blaster pistol got a few shots to show. Should hopefully get it in game tonight and hopefully get the texture and everything else done for a mid week release. I know the model isnt anything thrilling but im using this as a learning experience for KOTOR engine. Poly count is
lower than 1000 so it should be fine in game.

Thanks! I knew the name would be mis-leading it isnt actually a "episode 1" gun i used EP-1 as an evented name for the gun after my alias epikon (The5ID is an old name). :D "EP" is the first to letters of epikon and 1 is like the mark of it. Should be making a EP-1 Blaster Rifle soon :D.

Hey that's a cool pistol, but I'll tell you something I found out when I made a pistol, the trigger and the trigger guard-thing kind just clip with your PC's hand, you might want to delete them, reduces a few polys and you really don't notice a difference.

Just a friendly suggestion!

Ive come across a problem, uv mapping. Ive had a look at the tutorials but they dont make much sense, it seems to be impossible, so many ways to do it, any help, thanks!

I just checked through my inbox for svosh's tutorial he sent me, but I've emptied it. :( Better luck asking him maybe.
