Woah ensoniq that's awesome! I'd buy that car if It was produced and I was a millionaire :D
I'm loving the way it looks like the outer shell looks like a sheet of metal bolted down, Don't know if that was the intended effect but I think it works well for steampunk!

@Davdud: I'd try it in a generic scene like the other one if I were you, at the moment it looks washed out and bright but thats the effect the object editor gives to anything, and materials can always be tinkered, parts added / edited. :)

I've always been very interested in animation and video games which naturally led me to try and recreate what I loved.
When I was about 12 I think I googled (like someone else) "free 3d animation software" and Anim8or popped up first! problem was I couldn't understand it so gave up for about 2 years, came back around 14 and started using it more, doing the tutorials and trying things out.

But then AGAIN I stopped using it for half a year til I saw an interesting interview with profesionall animator Tyson Ibele which completely renewed my interest in the program, and from then to now have been using it and hope to use what i've learned when I get a full time job
(Im first year of college now on interactive media thanks to Anim8or :D)

/\/\/\/\ Sorry for writing a life story :P always happens

even more awesome ideas coming through! really liking the interest in this project. :D
Untill a proper plan of develpment can be sketched out i'll start 3-Doodling some steampunkian gadgetry to fill some world space hopefully at one point :P

And on the name along the same lines as previous Posts how about something along the lines of "New eden" <-- not that though, too cheesy. something along the lines of it was meant to be the birth of a golden age but got corrupted along the way...

And on another note is there a general area / part of the world where this will be set? Hard to explain what I mean but the name would most likely change depending on which culture mainly developed the city. (or it could be just in the middle of an ocean? where else has more water available)

So much to think about!!

All of these ideas are awesome! :D

One other thought though, will the gadgetry and styling of the world be detailed and extravagant [image 1] or will it be more of a simplified style [image 2]?

(those were the best pictures I could find to show what im talking about :P)

Ooh agree on that, And I do find steampunk much more appealing than whaling stations :D

OMG that is amazing! It gets so slow swapping between all the tools sometimes but this should speed it up so much wowa.

lol this really came out of the blue. awesome tool!!
Next time I start / continue a project i'll give you some feedback :D

edit: 1 thing. is there a way to swap from point edit to object edit mode using the tool?

And i've noticed already the problem with it running outside of anim8or mamamalolmamama

Yeah same here :D
one thing though, please don't make the mistake of putting a really heavy or well known tune in like many a youtube showcase (unless it fits) :P

Sorry i'm so picky about music, if it doesn't feel right it annoys me
