What a learning curve though... Very Happy I was sad when Caligari went out of business and Truespace stopped being a thing.

I managed to export a model from blender and import it into Truespace (which I still have) to manipulate, then export it from there and import it into Blender, but I have no idea how to texture it, or what sort of scale it would be in the game I was hoping to get somebody to mod it into for me. Very Happy

Start with a procedural texture, unwrap the UV, and bake the diffuse and normal maps.

Yes, those are all real things.

Sounds like a recipe for radioactive muffins. Not sure where the map fits in.

I haven't been able to figure out how to even generate / apply a procedural texture yet. Very Happy

On the other hand, I haven't put much effort into it...no doubt a Blender texture tutorial would sort me out...I'm trying to convince other people to do it for me instead. Very Happy

That is interesting. I was only thinking this morning that I've been conducting some kind of Bear Therapy (not bare therapy) with my Tarot cards.

I worked as a security guard about 20yrs ago at a haunted manor house; not that I really believe in such things. But the place was so 'unnatural' to this day I still have nightmares.
So to combat this recurring vexation I decided to try a set of Tarot cards with a little self-psychoanalysis.
I've been using the Ghost Tarot by Davide Corsi - a deck that was sitting idle on a bookshelf still in it's wrapper after more than two years.

While doing Tarot spreads, (and guided meditation) I formed an awareness of a Lady of the Manor (the haunted house) who also is a Taroist. Through these imaginings a kind of entree is being forged.
The depictions (archetypes) in the cards reveal oddly accurate narratives - these scenarios or short/short stories I then record in a journal. A good enough reason to break out the coloured pencils, scissors, pritt stick, protractors, compass...

Thinking of you at this sad time.

Some good vibes sent my way requested around 1:00 pm PST as I'm put under to go through biopsies of yet two more different areas. Hoping they come back clean, but that answers to why I had symptoms once several months ago are explained. Right now we're fishing in the dark.

I don't know if I'll be allowed my phone in preop or recovery; usually SD has been with me prior to my procedures and holds on to my phone once they put me out. But due to visitor restrictions this time, I don't know if I'll be allowed my phone. So, if not, I'll see y'all on the flip side.

Got home about 7:30 pm PST. OR ran two and a half hours behind, so although I was taken back to preop pretty much as soon as I checked in at 11 am, I wasn't brought back to the OR until 3:30 instead of 1 pm. Recovery was a little difficult coming out of it, so took about 2 hours, rather than 1. But I'm home now and finally having something to eat, other than the apple sauce and graham crackers I had in recovery.

Thanks for the good thoughts and light sent my way!
