Thanks again. I like the new layout but am having trouble going from Auto to Low now. The reason I made the base the way I did before is because it made it easier to go from Auto to Low, and/or 1+, because of the corners in the pattern.
Now that it's an actual H pattern, it's harder to catch that center groove to move sideways. There is a slight pause when moving to the center position, which does help, but it's not enuf to be able to move sideways easily or fast. So that's part of what's holding it up. I even angled the positions a bit, kinda like the original, but it didn't help. I may have to go more drastic and make it more like the original. But that'll take a while as I'll have to remake the base all over again and preposition the nodes again.
I also tried rotating it more but it didn't seem to help much and I don't like it turned that much showing mostly the side of it.
All that and the textures get washed out some while in cabview so I have to find a happy medium for that. The skull isn't bad but the base is kinda dark at times so I wanna lighten it up some. I had it lighter but it got washed out too much inside, so not sure where to go with that.
I may just release the skull as is, for now, and try to make it better when I have more time. The new one needs better textures tho because the handle looks crappy inside but I'm really liking the new base. I may use it with the skull too but may have to make a wider handle for it. It's just a lot of work changing it, then testing it, then changing it and testing again and so on and so on.
Oh and I forgot to mention that now that it's an actual H pattern, the travel seems longer, but it's the same base, just no corners now. That's why I'm liking the new base and may put the skull on it. We'll see how it goes.
