Re: Anyone mess with blender?
Zippy, thanks so much for the thoughtful post! It's good stuff, thanks.
I've done a bit of modding myself from a code standpoint, and it's tough to get into it that way (even when you're a programmer as a job). I think modelling and suchlike is the way to go, as I'm trying to spark an interest and don't want to start out too heavy. However even that probably won't do it if you don't already have an interest.
I had thought of Minecraft modding, but I hate Minecraft myself and it will pain me to look into it. I was thinking of starting off spawning various mobs etc. It will take some doing though.
Thanks for the help - plenty of good reading there!
