I don't know if this is possible, since I just got lightwave and don't know jack about it http://www.totalwar.org/ubb/smile.gif

Is it possible to make a 3d character in lightwave or 3d studio max, then move the image to the desired angle and make a 2d sprite out of it? I was thinking this may be an easier and graphically better looking sprite to make, with more angles instead of the four available right now. Then maybe have 8 or 16 different angles for the sprites and they would look more 3d.

And watch my pC eat itself. Besides, if you look in hte files there are a hell of a lot more htan four sprites for each man as it is.

THis one definitely is going to Editing Mods and Patches (http://www.totalwar.org/cgi-bin/ubb/forumdisplay.cgi?action=topics&forum=Editing+/+Mods+/+Patches&number=5&DaysPrune=45&LastLogin=)

It's not a bug, it's a feature

Oops I meant 4 different angles to view the units. Yeah gotta count all the fighting and walking sprites. But only 4 different angles on the units gets pretty ugly after a while

- A conclusion is simply the place where someone got tired of thinking.
- The only thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.

Whoops. just reread the title, thought this one said Better Spirits

(I had wondered why a thread about good alcohols was in the Mods forum)
