As I have some spare time now, I have made a start at getting back to this, will create the next vid tomoz. Turned that fake room into a fully explorable room, readme to follow.

Afternoon, Part 19 is now up.
This was a recap of what I have done since the last video with a small extension of the manor attic. Its an hour long so you can skip from 31:06 to 57.46.

Good stuff, although you really should think about using some modeling software too. The big amount of time needed to create the roof trims, and frustration with misalignment and all that stuff, you could avoid at least some of that with proper modeling tools.

I would like to and to that end -
I have been suggested and tried alternatives, such as Wings3D, but have been unable to find the right tutorial for beginners.
What do you use for your modeling..?

Hmm, I'm afraid all modeling software controls will be a bit alien in comparison to DR. I use older version of 3dsmax, but the controls remain roughly the same throughout all versions. E.g. all 3d navigation is MMB-based (with Alt, Ctrl, Ctrl + Alt modifiers). But cloning options are faster, as is switching between vertex/edge/polygon level, not to mention all modifiers at your disposal. Still, buying 3dsmax for amateur modeling work these days is a ridiculous idea, given its sky-high price.

It's really hard to get perpetual licenses for stuff like 3dsmax 2010 these days. Some people were selling it on eBay, but Autodesk stepped in and banned it. They only approve selected resellers now, and they also switched to a subscription model. Even on a monthly basis, something like 200 GBP per month is way, waaay too much for a home budget.

I've linked to this in the past but since it keeps coming up ...
I've used it in the place of a proper import/export pipeline and it works fine. If the download link is dead I can provide you a copy.

That might be useful if Biker decides to give Blender a go one more time. I also just checked Modo, which is very good, and it has both a permanent license or annual/monthly subscription plan. 50-60 EUR per month is basically a price of one new video game.
Edit: and it looks like Modo supports .lwo natively: https://help.thefoun...ort_export.html

For the technology it offers, it's actually very home user friendly, especially in comparison to "industry's finest" like Autodesk. This plus a hobbyist license for Zbrush allows you to create high quality content without pirating all the software, which is nice.
