This is just a tiny survey, poll, to help tutorial writers to bring you what you want - more knowledge!


So, how can you help?

Just vote on the poll for the generic theme and leave a reply with a more detailed request!

That's it.

EDIT: There is now

But perhaps make a tutorial about advanced spells or something like that:p (use your imagination)

You edit to quickly :(
I voted GUI tutorial , just have no idea what you are gonna do with that...

Modelling tutorials (modelling, animating) - There isn't many of these, so I'm voting for this. :)

I voted sound, because from memory I haven't seen a sound tutorial here.

Although I think there need to be more vJass and Modelling skinning tutorials here.

I wish we could vote two things, We need both skinning and modeling Tutorial's.

I would rather, myself, skinning tutorials, becuas modeling is plain hard no matter how many tutorials there is.

A skinning tutorial on how to shade properly and make relistic human skin, muscle, and faces.

However, I would like to learn jass, too.

I voted for skin.
Although I'd like JASS, Modelling, and sound as well.

Modelling

While not being vital, modelling is quite important. The ability to stretch past the boundaries of the WE models is both fun and rewarding.

For instance, we need description of our tools. I for one would like to see a tutorial on Magos' model editor explaining translation, rotation & scaling, and more detail about ribbons and how they can be made in the model editor.

I could make a custom animating tutorial
I am very skilled with gmax in animating (though My animations are stiff like)
(i'll need some time (to make it) though)

how about ubersplats...I've worked with WE for years and still dont know what they are :/

they are images displayed for some kinda effect

Frankie12059 said:
An ubersplat is a tool used to add immediate textures to a target point without having to use dummy abilities. Also, it can be used to add rendering effects to a certain point (i.e magnify, wave, deform, etc.) Oh and I've also posted the complete list of GUI ubersplat triggers for WE:
p.s. frankie is on another website

Id like to have some modelling tutorials...
For an easy start, I would like a tutorial about modelling buildings, which I think is easier for you dont need so much animations than for a unit's modell ...

Indeed, there is a lock of modeling tutorials.

Especially of those ones, which teach modeling from scratch.
 
General chit-chat

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    I ordered like five blocks for 15 dollars. They're just little aluminum blocks with holes drilled into them
  • Varine Varine:
    They are pretty much disposable. I have shitty nozzles though, and I don't think these were designed for how hot I've run them
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
