With the following tutorial


I hope this helps and I welcome any feedback. This is my first tutorial so I may not have covered all of the bases. If you have any questions please let me know.

Good luck!

This is just awesome. I'm currently awaiting delivery of my copy of "Dyson's Delves" and I don't think I have a choice but to try this out when it arrives. Thanks for the great tut.

This tutorial is excellent and even I was able to follow it and make a 3D super-futuristic dungeon video. Strongly recommended.
