Happy new year!

Greetings everyone :) I hope everyone had a great start into the new year. Reporting back from the dead. From now on I will be back on this forum and answer questions with a priority on the Tutorial section.
Apologies for any unanswered messages and pms.. I'll work my way through them if they haven't already been answered. :icon_bow:

To give you an outlook on future tutorials, the good news is they will come!
I've been enrolled in the beta program by Autodesk and I can tell you already in advance that the new features in 3Ds Max 2020 is a game changer especially for those of you who are familiar with the struggles of "pinching" issues with the old chamfer modifier.

This will be a thing of the past once 3Ds Max 2020 releases and I am thrilled to finally produce tutorials without the hassle of having to work around these pinching issues. My plan is to make another weapon tutorial similar to the AKM (which is still the best seller) and it will include all the new good stuff that's been flowing into Substance Painter and 3DS Max since the last tut. I am still evaluating which weapon that will be but if the time allows it I plan to make two. One will be a pistol or revolver and the other one will probably be some sort of an AR15 assault rifle with a scope on it.

I will share more with you once I get started but for now I am waiting for the release of this 3dS Max version. Right now it wouldn't make sense to start recording it as it's only the beta version and they might still change a few things around but then again.. the new chamfer modifier features that they have in there now and top class and will make it both so much easier for me to produce tutorials and also for you to follow them along!

Also I've been using ZBrush for more then a year now so you can expect some juicy ZBrush tutorials along the way too but right now I am still not feeling THAT confident to already take on tutorials. If I do I'll start with some smaller and manageable ones. If I get lucky this will also happen this year still.

Best regards, Tim

I`m so happy to hear from you Tim!
After completing your tutorials it seems to me that I trust only you and will not be able to learn from someone else :) And what you describe in your plans sounds just great - this is exactly what we all lack. I still can’t decide to start exploring zbrush and I’m really looking forward to when I can do this with you!

Oh, and I think that you need to consider some kind of a sci-fi gun for a candidate for the tutorials :) And btw idea to include a scope to the gun is very cool. Always wanted to see how a professionals working on them.

I wish you and all of you guys the best and most productive year!

Hi everyone and Tim,

Not sure where to post this but this is about Tim's tutorials on the Steam platform. As per title and this link: ... closing-pc

Valve seem to "inadvertently" removed your "Ultimate Weapon Tutorial" and "Ultimate Grenade Tutorial" from the platform (I purchased both of these). The "Mech Tutorial" and "Kukri" are still there (I have both of these too) :) but I have no idea how long Valve gonna maintain these.

There are other videos I purchased that have gone missing too.

Is it possible for you to check on your end with Valve what's going on? I was in the middle of the AK tutorials and *boom* gone.

Thanks in advance

mm yep mine gone ffs bloody steam

Thanks for writing in to report this issue. We are aware of a problem that is preventing some videos on Steam from being played, and are working on a solution. I don't have a specific timeline on when this will be fixed.

The fix will be deployed to the Steam Client Beta first, so I would encourage you to follow the instructions below to opt into the Steam Client Beta:

1) In Steam, click on "Steam" in the upper left, then choose the "Settings" menu. (Preferences on Mac)
2) On the "Account" tab under "Beta Participation" click the "Change..." button.
3) Select the desired beta test from the "Beta Participation" drop down list and click "OK".
4) You will be prompted to restart Steam, please select the "Restart Steam" button.

Note: In some cases, you may need to perform these instructions twice for the beta to take effect.

This will ensure that you get any fixes for this issue as soon as they are available. Let me know if there's anything else that I can help clarify.

Thanks for using Steam,
