    Exclamation RW Tutorials

    So it seems to me that a lot of people are saying that there is a lack of easy to understand tutorials. I know that we have an online wiki but I have seen people say that it can be hard to understand. What Good tutorials already exist? post a link and I will add it to the list. Also what tutorials do people want to see? I might make a couple of tutorials myself but they will be focused around Reskins and importing models into RW.

    I would love to see a tutorial on RW's signals. I know RW Wiki has one, but the pictures aren't showing up. So far I've been copying what other people have been doing with the signals in their route.

    I guess I should delete the tutorial I just posted? I had no idea this other one existed here. I swore I read that on UKTS.

    Hi! I just checked out the Tutorial for Scenario/Set a stop at instruction. The explanation is correct, but very basic. It does not continue with the best instruction on how to set way points (pass through or stop at) over a fairly long route, where the markers are not within easy reach from the scenario marker.

    This is just one point, and I am sure that there are many others examples with each Tutorial. IMO, the tutorials are just too basic. Cheers; Chuck F.

    no! no! The more tutorials the better! I think that is one thing a lot of people don't like about RW is a lack of Tutorials. I myself am going to be making a Reskining tutorial but it would be more focused on painting, textureing, and weathering then loading the model.

    Awesome you're going to do one for the texturing part. I can even fathom trying to explain the 30 layer mess I create when I'm in my repainting mind frame. Look forward to it.

    Thank you they have been added to the Downloadable Tutorial section.

    Texturing is easy once you figure it out. though I think I will break the tutorials up into diffrent sections for ease.
