Thumbs up "Thunder Rockin' in the Real (Free?) World," Part Deux

I used two lengths of ST-13 (7" and 11") in the attached RockSim 8 file to approximate the masking scheme, but I seem to have difficulties with the decal, which should appear as "Thunder" on the red, with "Auk" appearing on the white.


After wrestling with RockSim 8.0.1 r12 for an hour tonight, here's the outcome.

Dang, that Texture Mapping feature (?) is *less* than user friendly!

As I mentioned earlier, at least the fin texture finally came out right with the CDD. Once you get used to the idea that you need to create a full wrap for the tubes (width = circumference, length = length) and save it in the correct orientation, you can do some remarkable things with it. Agreed, though, it still needs some work to make it more "User Friendly"...

Speaking of which, check out this website:

...and this one:

These are my two favorite online geek-oriented comics...
