Nice...2 questions: Could you please put on some config hints/tutorials for a helicopter (aswel as the model config) or maybe a basic structure for a heli config? What about the supershader for max?

Cheers Dwarden!

Any chance to get the max/maya shaders?

Especially since those are already made?

Kind of sick of of using 3rd party DX shaders :)
