Well, there is more than one type of historic space capsule, and more than
one person tinkering around with doing one, and we each are doing a
different capsule, so confusion was bound to arise somewhere :) Mine just
happens to be the grand-daddy of them all :)
Speaking of which, I've already made good progress on the new model. I think
a lot of the time spent building the old ones were really developing
technique rather than the actual task of modeling. So hopefully I'll have it
back in no time - and better! I'm going about it a completely different way
this time, which should, if all goes well, allow me to save a lot of time on
texturing, using many small textures rather than one huge one. Hard to
explain, but this could end up being a substantially better way to go. So I
guess there are some surprise benefits to being a dumbass.
PS - I also hadnt updated my video drivers in a while. Turns out the latest
from NVidea allows multiple desktops and many other very nice goodies. So
I'm having fun with that, too :)
