Using the L43 unaltered just scaled wouldent work, it would look all wrong for a 105mm, the way ive done it you can use your texture by cut and pasting the main parts and altering 1 or 2 small parts. The only reason i didnt use my origional custom barrel was because you wanted the model, and it wasnt uv mapped. I was personally content with relics barrel, it looked okay correctly smoothed.
The AEC isnt uvmapped, but you should finish whatever stuff you have first and not worry about rushing .
The 37mm i will sort out as youve obviously got your hands full. Ill sort the grant too .
As for Lorans stuff thats remaining, ive always been dubious as to its origins, which is why ive not worked on them for a long while, however if you send me the ones you want smoothed and fixed i will do what i can for them as a favour to you. Sweeten knows my view on this. I will deffinatly not mix my stuff with anything apart from relics origional or some of TDs if he allowed it. And even that would only be because i like TD and the favor would cut both ways. As ive said before, theres nothing that needs making that i cant make by myself or using relics stuff, it avoids a lot of unpleasentness and conflict.
The gpa, i did say id fix the required uv parts. Im begginiing to realise that after making an ocl some parts of each uv are thrown about or mashed up. And i suspect this to be the cause of the problem. (IE on the muleteer. i just had to fix all the left side supension and mounts, because the uv had gone screwey after creating the occlusion, yet when you unwrap it, it looks fine on the map. Only fix seemed to be to reuvmap them, in this case it was easier to clone and mirror, so i did that and deleted the screwed up parts).
