I made a list for myself of my most used shortcuts for 3DSMAX:

QUOTE
7 = show facecount of currently selected object
Alt+Middle mouse button = Rotate view
Ctrl+Middle mouse button = Pan view
Middle mouse button = Zoom in/out
Alt+W = Maximize active viewport
Shift+Move = Copy selected object
Ctrl+D = Deselect all

1 = Modify Panel
F = Front
L = Left
T = Top
P = Perspective
C = Camera view
M = Material editor
Q = Select object
W = Move object
E = Rotate object
R = Change scale mode
H = Edit selection/select by name
M= Material Editor
O= adaptive degeneration toggle

Also bind the "\" key to "Keyboard Shortcut Override", which is essential for unwrapping.

Delete unnesessary polygons before Welding/Target welding in Editable Poly.

Our normalmaps are used as normalmaps, but there is more ways of creating them. On some objects (mostly on soldiers) are normalmaps created from hi poly mesh, on other objects are normalmaps just generated from grayscale map handpainted in photoshop (for example is way faster draw dots on the texture than actually model 2000 rivets on blackhawk), and sometimes it's combination of those two (when you need to add button on the sleeve, is easier to paint it than model it).
So in short - yes, our normalmaps are real normalmaps, but in many cases they weren't created from hi poly model and theoretically plain bump map would do the same effect. But our engine doesn't have support for them.

Seems to be pretty tough to create addons with normal-maps. But then, I am not really an experienced modeller.

yeah, but with the game, that will be easier to see exactly how they made their models and textures. for the moment, i don't understand a lot of things cry3.gif

I've been saying all along that it won't be as easy as people think (also to convert addons to ArmA standards), but would they listen? ....of course not.... dance.gif

i have some videos and webtutorials related to the techniques involved here. i would recomend 2 kind of tutorials to you guys.
1- creating bumpmaps with greyscale textures- its really easy to do, and results are good. i think u need the nvdia plugin for photoshop. anyway i have that video tutorial link somewhere, but its in portuguese...but u can understand almost everything just by watching it.
2-creating normalmaps from the high resolution models- this is the process that gives us a way to extract the perfect normal maps textures, directly from a 200.000 tris model to a low resolution model. i use this daily, so i'm very pleased with the results. it gives a lot of work ( creating a very high resolution model), but worth the trouble. but i agree that modeling 2000 rivets isnt the smart option. u gota learn to mix techniques.
there are enough xsi tutorials for that, and even more tutorials for max i'm sure

i dont have any suport from softimage, but xsi is really the best software i could buy now. the essentials version costs only 500dolars!! xsi is a professional tool, that was market leader few years ago (in anination industry)...max isnt for my wallet, so my option went directly to xsi. i was a max user before, so i know all that max can give... the point here is the $ ...
cant wait to have the game in my hands...and the basic moding editor tools for the addons...
maybe one day i'll try to compile it, in english.who know...

i'll post links when i found them. cya all soon.
