      Dear community,   After three weeks of issues we moved our site to a new dedicated root server. We fixed a lot of bugs with this release. All downloads up to 1Gb filesize should be downloadable for everyone.   Encountering any kind of issues? Make a post in the website/forum support.   Regards, Stan

      Paid Referral Links   02/11/2016

      Hello,     From now on we will be disallowing any referral links on our site. This is not the place to earn money directly or indirectly. Anyone found sharing paid shortened links or referral links to earn money might lose his account.     Reason for this:     We are providing this service free of charge, putting our own free time in this and paying monthly fees on our own costs to keep this free service running. So why should anyone else make money from something they don’t pay to use?     So in short from now on we will be warning and banning users abusing or misusing referal links.     Regards,     Stan

      Signatures   03/04/2016

      Hi everyone. It appears that the update to the new forum has affected the format of the majority of signatures (adding extra spaces, changing sizes etc.). Due to this, could everyone please check their own signature, ensuring that it complies with the site rules. See the or for more information.  We'll give it a few weeks to give enough time to edit signatures, after that the unnecessarily large signatures will simply be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Regards, EMP Staff.

[TUTORIAL]How to Template and UV Map Tutorial

6 posts in this topic

I have documented the steps I am doing while making a few models. The following will be required reading (and you will need to understand it) before you advance to the next steps.


Tutorial will be gradually expanded as I am able to document and type more things.


I will only be answering some questions and only provide generalized answers. My lack of time prevents a dedicated help line.

  • Templating Tutorial
  1. Go to user mode and go into full screen
  2. Select find in views to get a good zoom of your model and to center it to the screen (optional)
  3. Capture each of the sides of the model. You need the Left, Right, Front, Rear and top. Tip: Hold shift when rotating the camera to get a more sensetive view.
  4. Hit print screen and save image into texture. Add additional parts like headlights/tailights, bumpers and license plates if necessary. Save texture.
  5. Assign texture to material, assign material to model (explained in Hoppah's tutorial)

  • UV Mapping Tutorial
  1. You need a template (I will make a Templating tutorial soon)
  2. Select the polygons you wish to remove
  3. Detach them from the main object
  4. Go to vertices mode and select all of its vertices
  5. Go to the desired view (example uses left view because the part is the left surface of the object)
  6. Generate a new UV map
  7. Align object to template in UV mapper
  8. Try to get it as close as possible
