Collectible: Rare Mac Gaming Leather Jacket
Hi! I thought you might interested in this. Not exactly hard core developer news -- but a nice holiday weekend post nevertheless. :) Back in 1996, the Apple Game Sprockets team made a set of incredibly cool leather jackets to promote the Mac as a "Serious Game Hardware" machine. They took a really cool $500 bomber jacket -- and then embroidered them with a special and fairly complex design on the back. The logo includes a special camouflage Apple logo, target and game weaponry. (See picture at URL below) ONLY 20 of these jackets were made -- and are extremely rare. In fact, other than the ones that we have/had, I've only seen one other. MacTech was fortunate enough to get a few of these some time back -- and the other day, I came across an extra one in my closet at home that had never been worn. This jacket is now on auction on eBay. If you are interested -- or want to see a picture, check out: This is a...

Codenautics Software's Meshwork 1.7: 3D Trimesh Modeling
Codenautics Software is proud to announce version 1.7 of Meshwork, the premier 3D trimesh modeling application for MacOS. This release introduces an important new feature: "pinned-mode texture mapping," which allows the user to have complete control over the texture coordinates for every point in the 3D model. This allows artists to make more efficient use of texture memory by combining the textures for several different parts of the model into one image. Previously, Meshwork users who needed this level of control were forced to use a third-party texturing application as a post-processing step. This was cumbersome, and often meant repeating the texture mapping work whenever the geometry changed. With the new pinned-mode texture mapping of Meshwork 1.7, artists can meet all their texture mapping needs within one modeling program. Meshwork can now be used to produce the type of models used such games as Quake and The Sims, with a smooth, integrated workflow and no repeated work....
