[Posted by Izzy, 11.27.2002 @ 4:05:PM]

Forumer, Viceroy SithLord, started an interesting little thread about your favorite star wars lines! Be sure to drop by and tell them what you think. ;) As for me, I like the line "Try not. Do or do not. There is no try." - Yoda

Poser Article: Week One
[Posted by Izzy, 11.26.2002 @ 8:30:PM]

Yep, since I've gotten quite a bit of time on my hands, I decided to start a little series of articles that I will be doing weekly. The first one I have done is basically a guide of how to make a template for the model you're going to be using. Instead of having endless pages of introductory, I decided to save us some time and jump right to the article. :) The article includes a zipped up file with lights and cameras that make the view look more like a Genie Engine styled unit. Many thanks to AoERat for taking the time of recoding it for me!

This is for all of you who decided to go a step further in modding AOK and SWGB, and making your units look as live like as possible! Since I have been aware of all the complications Poser gave to people, I decided to design a simple article which will describe how to make units* in a few easy steps.
Watch out for next weeks guide which covers Clothing, hair styles and a little bit on animation.

The Aufax War
[Posted by Izzy, 11.24.2002 @ 5:52:PM]

Sarupo started an interesting campaign about the Aufax War.

The Aufax have just devloped laser weapons, ex: blaster, spaceships, and tuurets. On their planet the Tsiruk are causing problems. They threaten to go to war with the Aufax if they won't surrender their land. Little does anyone know of the Galactic Empire, waiting to take control of the lanet to build their ultimate weapon. As all this is going on the Galactic Repiblic is not at rest. The Abear Knights can't work fast enough to restore peace.
