Just made a lightsaber using Milkshape and would like to know how to make a map or mesh for easy guidance when skinning it, cause it looks like a scary task ahead!

Well I did notice that a few of you were also asking about skinning or getting uv maps and I think I've answered my own question. There is a programme that I found, I'm sure there's others out there who found it too! Anyway it's called Ultimate Unwrap3d and it works with Milkshape. You can get a free trial version but unfortunately you can't save your work, you do however get to see a preview of what your map would look like and from there you can screen print and save it in your paint program. There is also a really cool tutorial at http://xu1productions.com/3dstudio/ that shows you how to use the program and gives skinning tips!!! Hope this helps anyone?!?
