I remember you.  I may even remember your original account name.  Some of us old peeps are still around.

Having had to go through this a few years ago, (but I had a lot of stuff saved on Zip discs, of all things!) I'm not sure where all of the main tools are now that Yahoo closed up their Groups.  There should be a sticky in one of the forums with the install order, which should give you a list of most that you need to look for.  Even with FFVTTR having various improvements, some of us still have a preference for the original game, so whichever one you choose to make content for, you'll have an audience.

If no one else has any good links for the tools, I'm sure one of us can post them somewhere or email.  Aside from that, here's the main links I've saved (but don't forget to check out daglob's Preservation Society sticky for an exhaustive list of links):

The same tools are still usable so whatever you're comfortable with. Some of us are just experimenting with trying new things out. I use much of the original stuff suggested by the games documents and how to's. Windows updating tossed sort of a wrench in it. Else questions and those are all pretty much the subjects of this forum so skim about. One thing though no we don't use Yahoo Groups anymore nor does anyone. Yahoo cancelled that service awhile ago.

I remember you too. Welcome back.

Although there are fewer people around than in the old days, I think you'll find that this is still a very friendly place and those left are still willing to help if they can. I've found it so.

Even if people aren't around, they can still be very helpful - I've found answers to some questions just be searching the forum and finding old posts with the info I needed.

I would also add SA's site to the list above - http://catman.freedomforceforever.com/

And the list of sites that are gone but still available on wayback that Daglob was maintaining. That and a list of tutorials are at the top of this toipic page.

For Blender, 2.49b is still your best bet.

Another lost member, Cyberburn, has a nice download called "Tools of the Trade" that should have a lot of what you need - http://www.freedomreborn.net/forums/index.php?topic=59784.0

I have a good intro on it on SA's site  that he is hosting for me - http://catman.freedomforceforever.com/rdays/rdays.html

  and some more info on things here - http://www.freedomreborn.net/forums/index.php?topic=60677.0

Though I'm still learning things myself and can't vouch for 100% accuracy.

And Ewzzy, another old timer who has recently returned, has some Blender info on his site - http://www.freedomforce.ewzzy.com/Blender.php

By trying new things I mean a lot of experimenting with unusual methods for fun. However it does not mean you "have" to use them at all in order to make content for these games. You can still just use the standard methods and programs that you used to and that are called on by the games art docs. As others mentioned they still use the traditional methods. So like Blender for instance isn't essential but just something we're playing around with though a lot of fun and worth playing with I say, thank RD for introducing all that. But that's what I mean.

Oh and I see RD posted my site link, the page called Workbench is the one of interest to you. It's where I host basics tutorials and provide base material for people to work with/copy over into their projects. Sorry the sites a mess, I'm having issues on uploading as well website design stuff myself. Mostly life as you mentioned happened here as well and one of the effects is I ended up real far from the cities and have a terrible old internet connection now so getting things updated is a very slow process for me. But if it anything there helps good thing then.

SA has been working hard on a bunch of projects and expanding his knowledge. If you check some of the forums you'll see he's almost done with creating me an awesome Spider-mobile with a new Spiderman mesh and skin, along with things like turning wheels.

If you check through my "project interest" thread in the request forum (there's quite a few pages now), SA and I have some conversations on some interesting things going on.

My main point of interest since I started modding has been importing meshes from other sources and bringing them into the game. A few months back I went a bit further and I've had some success in actually bringing in the meshes' original animations in as well. There's been quite a few hangups, but some success as well, thanks to some of the other members here.

Welcome back, hmarrs!  It looks like you're in good hands already.

If you get back up and running and want to help out with mods, let me know!  You can see what I'm up to lately in my DCUG thread. 

I'm always thrilled to see the veterans return!
God Bless

Don't fall for Benton's smiling face and cheery demeanor! He just wants to chain your soul inside his infernal "one more skin request for my mod" dungeon....it's a horrid place full of pro aquaman pictures and such...

Yeah Benton will do that. On the other I like doing TMNT stuff for him. I grew up with that stuff and it tends to present me with a good challenge. Still have the shark character on my hard drive and in my que once I get some other things out of the way, Pods request is sitting there as well.
