Hoi hoi everybody!

I have a small question about textures. How to do i create a bump map for Armada 2? Im building Galactica and i think that to really look good, its gonna need some bump maps. I have access to Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop CS2, and i use milkshape 3d to model.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jazznaz89,

As far as I know, milkshape does not support bump mapping. :(

A tutorial for adding bump maps with 3ds MAX is availible in the Westworld’s Big Book of Modding.

Are there any .sod exporters for 3DS Max 8?

Unfortunately, rhere isn't a SOD converter for 3ds max 8. You will have to obtain one of the older versions of max. Versions 3, 4 and 5 work with the sod converter.
