you will need a 3d modeling program that can save/export your tank mesh in a .3ds format. if you have Q's about using a 3d modeling program please specify which one

ok i think i may have to give up on the tank and map modding for now as i cant even begin to understand the graphics programs involved in making them so i will leave it to the pro's for now till im not so naive enough to understand them

Ban making maps is so easy. Go to www.treadmarks.de download the TMapper. Open up some other maps with the prgram,get a feel for how it works. And in no time you'll be making maps. Can always ask Matrix for any more help.

If you want to try GMAX and use the tutorials to help you get a start into understanding 3D development for tanks and meshes. http://www.discreet.com/products/gmax/ that might help get you going. It is a freeware program and is featured in the utilities on DNX's site.

in making tanks/learning 3d modeling the 1st step is generally learning how to make a box, then making 2 more boxes and attaching them to the sides of the 1st box(clone/mirror is usually your best bet for the 2 side boxes). this with a little manipulation can be the basis for your 1st tank hull. the turret can be considered as a box with a little box stuck on the side.
