Do you know if i could use 3ds max to make models for gold source engine games like half life 1? Because, using milkshape 3D is a pain in the butt…

Kai Olivier says:

can you tell us how to make source engine models in Blender?

The Siphon says:

All 3D modeling software is really hard. I have tried out both 3dsmax and Blender, but without any results.
One thing that would help that would be buttons instead of hotkeys, just like in Hammer. Also generally 3D modeling is a lot harder than mapping.

I’m used to Blender. And since i have to use 3DS Max for my studies, i throw up every day because of crashes, start up times and hugging non-sense inside that program.
