In this tutorial you will learn the basics of Ngon modeling, UVW mapping and useing the replacer function in cchargin's MDLops. I wrote the tutorial in word so you can open the document in wordpad or MS Word.

To follow along with this tutorial you will need these tools:

Gmax (http://www4.discreet.com/gmax/) This is a free program is used to make 3d models. You can also use 3ds

NWmax (http://nwmax.dladventures.com/) This is a plug-in that was designed to import NWN models, but it works to import KotOR models as well. IF your useing 3ds you will need to Download the 3ds version of NWmax.

cchargins MDLops 4.1 (http://home.comcast.net/~cchargin/kotor/index.html) This app is used to convert the models from KotOR to ascii.mdl so that you can import the model into Gmax by useing NWmax. This app will also compile the model after you export your model from gmax.
