You've got a ton of empty space in that uvmap, you should try packing them together a bit more closer so that you don't have huge file sizes and a bunch of ram/cpu hogging.

Can anyone give me any advice on how to create reflections easily. I've never really use this function in anim8or before.

ahhh awesome didn't relise it was that easy in anim8or! thanks!

Whilst i'm replying in the message i'll just give you a quick update of whats going on...

Currently i'm working on the script and getting the main storyline complete as well as setting up a little preview script for when i release a little snippet of what is to come. Adam, another person working on this project is brushing up his skills on blender and the others working in this project are waiting for me to finish the script. Should soon have it done.

Quick Update

This weekend i'm going to be working on expanding the website content. I'm going to be setting up a little interactive map of the research facility featured in Project Test Chamber. I'm also going to set up an area map of the surround towns(setting of the film). Both setting maps are fictional and are not based on any where in particular. I'll post up another message when i've got it all ready to go.

At last another update!

I've just updated the website a bit more. The Chamber section now has a full intro and will soon be the main area of the website holding all of the information and content! Enjoy and tell me what you think of it.

Well if i were you i'd add the option to skip 'The Chamber's Intro, since it might get annoying if you want to quickly browse through it.

good idea, i'll add that although the intialising bit has got actionscript to load whatever content is within but it has a set limit time and finish time because i try to load most of it when the website first opens.

Right time for another update!

Here are two images on the main setting of the animation. Its going to be a test facillity set around a lake in a large mountainous valley. The first image is a low poly version of the valley and the second is a medium poly version, and the colours are not for anything but to give me a general idea of where things are going to be and where certain sections are when i come to texturing.  Black is for the general area roads will be placed and the blue is just where water will be.
