There are a lot of things you can do in a mod with attributes, I outlined a few things here:

Also there is a little bit on using alpha masks and details

Here's something with handling environmentals such as gloss and glow mapping

I found this link the other day and it isn't a tutorial so much as it is a guide. It gives the RGB values of some "real world" light sources. So if you don't like experimenting with the RGB values to get the color of light you want or if you're uber-colorblind like myself this might help you out.

AvP2 MEdit Tutorial to change SP Characters to MP Characters might be of some use for all Lithtech fans to learn more about the workings of MEdit.

Spydave's site seems to be MIA. Anyone know if it moved?

Aw ... thanks guys!

It 'might' be coming back ... I'm debating it ... plus I don't know when I'll find the time to work on it much ... if it comes back I'll want a complete redesign ...

The reason it's gone Stu Pedful is simply because it came time to renew and I just didn't have the time / interest to work on it much at that time so I just let it run out ... it's a long story ...

If money is not the issue, I would say just put website up somewhere cheap and let it sit. The tutorials really don't need any maintenance. As for the forum, it basically moderated itself didn't it? If not, the webpages and downloads (which I never got around to getting) certainly should be made available somewhere else.

I hate to see good reference material like the tutorials and forum posts disappear into the ether since those types of things are already so scarce.

I don't know the future of SparedLife.com but as long as it is up I would be glad to host a Spydave tutorial section. I can put the web pages on the server and provide Spydave with his own section on the forum easy enough. I'm already in trouble with the ISP on the amount of downloads I have with my skins so I would have trouble with downloads like maps and mods but there would not be a problem with web pages.
Anyway what I am trying to say is Spydave will always be welcome at SparedLife

SparedLife, is your site offline? I can't connect to it, and there were some things in the forums I wanted to checkout.
