- Is there an easy animated Character Maker available?
This is likely one of the greatest obstacles in 3D game creation. Making
an animated character from scratch can seem like an entire career in itself.
Making the mesh, skinning, rigging and animating it is no easy task. Using
a free animated character model and just re-skinning it in a simple paint
program is often the quickest way to make an original character. Creature
Creator by FXRealms is a very easy to use character creator if you can
afford the $200 price tag, and the fact that you still have to skin, rig and
animate it. Disturbing13
and Mr. J are currently collaborating on designing a highly flexible Character
Maker Addon for the BOSGCS project.
- What 3D Mesh Modellers can we use?
Anything that saves as a .X, .3DS, or .B3D will work! Anim8or
is FREE and exports .3Ds, Truespace3.2
is an older FREE version that exports to .X, Milkshape

*.md2 animated models for which there are many resource for free
modellers and free characters!
