    Considering that i know almost nothing about Modding in HL2, and I am planning a HL2 mod right now, I can't wait to see this. Hopefully it will be more than just fluff...
    Happy to be in the Maya Fundementals Class. Worth the wait, the effort, and more than worth the money. I've done a lot of VTMs; here and outside of 3dBuzz. I can say without a doubt that these VTMs are the best that I've seen. Great Job Guys, and Thank You!

    Just keep reading these forums and the other usual-places, and keep playing around in Hammer and by the time the book comes out, it'll be below you.

    I can't imagine it's going to be too valuable unless you don't ahve an always on internet connection. Otherwise, you can probably depend on forums and even the Buzz VTMs which will arrive in time. You'll be able to ask question about anything you don't understand in all these enviroments.

    Simply put - don't waste the money.

    If it is Fluffy suck you will hear it here for sure...If you dont want to waste your money wait till its out...its not looking good though...but pre judging is nearly as bad as believing what it says on the cover,in the ad,or review.I sit in big bookshops and read stuff for hours taking notes casing out books,and when Im really sure its good I'll buy it.Usually secondhand though from Amazon or Ebay resellers if possible(sorry bookshops)Ive bought books that are £49.99 here in the UK and had them sent from the US secondhand including postage for £12.Once this happens to you ,you really have to think abut everything you buy.
