Welcome to CMM

The CMM forum software was recently upgraded, some things may have changed and some things may be broken or not working. Please let me know by PM or on IRC if you have any problems using this forum.

Also, I've removed the skybox and shader links for now, the shader generator page was being abused and as we're moving towards a ue4 mapping base, they're redundant.

Which program is best for creating simple models for map?
Milkshape, Misfit, Blender?

What is important is time required to learn the basics.

I think you should think of what you want to learn in the end.
I started out hoping to just make models, so i went an easy way.
made a few bad models and faced i needed to learn something better.
I am trying to use blender as it will be usefull when i know how to use it.

I tested milkshape and made a few trees in like 30 min after opening the program for the first time. I guess that sumens it up well.

If you need to make less complicated models you could just make them in radiant and convert them to .ase models as well.
