      Fantastic job on this! It’s still incredibly daunting to me, but what I did today was read through the whole tutorial to get an idea of what’s involved. I’m thinking I should try a step a day and then give my brain a rest! If I learn to do this, I will never fail to mention my teacher! Today, I’m going to download all the requirements. I have some but not all.

      I think I managed to clone the vase, save it to the desktop, and then export the mesh to the same folder. Brain is exhausted!

      Got as far as making an ugly candlestick but got stuck when trying to create the cylinder for the candle. A divided empty screen appeared, didn’t know what to do. Will try later. Your tutorial is really helpful!

      Sorry Anne, I’ve only just seen this. If you send me a screenshot of any part you are having trouble with I’ll see if I can help. Don’t give up! 🙂

      Yeah! Today’s my 39th wedding anniversary and to celebrate my husband is watching the Mentalist and I will again try this tutorial! Will let you know how far I get this time. I created a sort of pot last time. Tee Hee!

      Yahoo! I got the farthest I’ve ever gone but am stumped at the tessalate, triangulate part. I think I selected all and right clicked but the menu doesn’t have what I need.

      Ann, I forgot to mention, you must click cube 3 at the top for the tessalate menu to show! 🙁 Sorry about that, but happy anniversary!

      Who knows what I’ve done, but think I have colorized my candlestick and saved as bmp. As you can see when I try to click on Build DTX, it isn’t available.

      Legacy Nvidia DDS Utilities – Download and install them, just like any Windows program, then start SimPE, select the menu ‘Extra’, ‘Preferences’ and fill in the field ‘Nvidia DDS Tools’ with the exact installation path (you can use the “Browse” button to find the folder where the DDS Utilities are installed).

      The option should then show up. 🙂
