Thanks for the comments, i really appreciate it :worship:

About the progress of the batmobile, well, i had a lot of progress on the body, but sadly after few hours working on it, i saved over the original file (Wrong move!) and as i mentioned, save using the Library is not secure.. so i lost the last scene with all the progress.. :cry:

Was very frustrating indeed, so i stop to work on it. :evil:

But i hope start to work again, do all this details again and stop to save from the library.. :twisted:

this is a shot from the model that save from a backup.

The "cockpit" has a slider with some logic behind that opens like the real batmobile, i'll try to make a vid from this cos looks cool :)

Thanks again for the comments, and I'll try to back to work again on it as soon as possible.

Oh.. Man... to quote a famouse ex US President... I feel your pain Prodigy... That feeling in your gut, that it seems only computer programs can produce, when in a split second all your hard work dissapears into non exsistance :( . I have lost more files in TrueSpace in more ways than I have files. You wouldn't think thats possible, but its true. I myself am about 50/50 on wether I ever return to the cursed project. But life goes on and the lure of creating in TrueSpace is an iresisable force that brings us back every time. Rely sory for your loss.

Cheers

I have done what you did Prodigy but I have rarely lost a file. As soon as you make the mistake, try loading the scene but choose 'all files' in the type box then look for the .bak file of the same name; it is usually the one before you saved. Might be too late now but a handy tip maybe for others....

I know if you save it as a workspace scene the old one goes to the recycle bin.

Still have quite a bit there though.
If you see a zukazamme it's probably me.

The thing about finding the truth is you first have to find who's hiding it.

Flow looks good, and it is important.

Logic, mathematics, and science let you see through the grime.

I use often "save as" in modelside to save my work and keep most important step of the construction. i never use the library. it is better to use his own folder. if i have a lot of texture i use the archive function to create a clean folder for the work. If you change the setting of the bridge (on/off) you can lost the scene in the model side. Always save a copy before do that. remember this to avoid to be frustated.
