You can teach yourself to unwrap pretty easily.  Remember that Lithunwrap is not an anim8or specific program.  So, there are tons of tutorials out there that will teach you to UV map even though they don't address anim8or.  All you need to do from anim8or is export the object as something like an .obj file.  Use google, it's your friend, and I"m sure you can learn to UV map.  You may also want to google information on UV mapping just so that you get an understanding of it.

My personal explanation is basically this:
UV mapping is like unwrapping a 3d mesh and laying it flat on a 2d surface.  For example, if you've ever created a paper cube, you usually cut out paper and fold it using something like one of these designs:

UV mapping is doing the reverse of this.  You take the final cube and cut it up then unfold it to get the flat cut out that you can then texture, allowing the textures to properly wrap around your model.

i am a kinda lazy so i only read the first post, but if you are asking ppl to make graphics for your game, show them what you have made earlier, or like in your sitiuation whith no ealier (completed) projects, what you have so far!
i am also making a game, and need artists too, but i wont go and ask before i have something to show them.
its like an insurence: you want graphics, they want proof that they dont put there hard work into a project thats never gona be finnished. simple as that!

i justed finnished the render engine, and right now i am cleaning up my code, but then ill get started with the physics engine.
and i am not sure what the game is gonna be about, but since i wanted to dedicate my first game to anim8or, i think ill make a big interactive exhibition with anim8or models.
where you are able to drive the cars, fly in the planes, and so on.
or does that sound too borring?

how about:

"once in a country far far awa... on the internet, there was a 3D modeling program avalable. this program seemed to be much cheaper, and much easier to learn than other programs! many people started using this program and made many great models.
one day an evil guy named Creater-of-expensive-modeling-programs, wanted tried to destroy this cheap *cough* free *cough* program by... eeh... doing some verry evil act (could't think of any) to make the program completely unknow among people.
therefor a exhibition was made, to show ppl what amasing things you could do with this program.
but you was the only person stupid enough to belive the story, so you are walking around alone, in this strange world of 3 Demensional art."

think that will do? :P

Because when we post many things in a forum, then the bandwidth has to be increased, and ultimately, the admin (Steve) has to pay for the extra bandwidth.
Sorry for just breaking the rule... XD )
