This Guide was written in response to a request by EmjeR for a step by step guide to create a simple house model for AoM (see the Modding Discussion Thread). It was the most sensible request I had heard so "here it is". At 31 pages with diagrams, it is very much a step by step guide and I hope it achieves its objective of helping people create their first model. If it does I may even add to it!
The download also includes a copy of GMAXEXP.exe and the import and export scripts. If you have already installed this mod, just ignore these files.
To install create a new folder for your modelling and move the files into it. The guide is in PDF format, and require Acrobar Reader. This can be downloaded from the Internet.
This is by far the most useful guide I have ever read. Your guide to modding was really helpful just converting everything, which is really the only thing most modders have problems with. I've always wanted to make a new model, and you are my hero :D That's probably the main goal of most modders actually...
You are my new best AoMH buddy along with Donut3500 :P
Do you have to Attach all four main walls to the windows, doors, and the roof as well? Or can they be separate objects?

Thanks to this guide I've learned moddeling in just a couple of hours and I've created couple of great models. It explains everything I needed to know in an easy way that everyone can understand.
