Admin: Better Counter Resources

I'm doing my best to make counters for each of these cars but my tools are poor. And I'm a poor artist. All told, even in 2007 and a real job, I still lack the materials to make decent computer art.

What I've been doing is using free art programs to manipulate scanned in images of car wars counters. Every once in a while, I'll find an online picture of a car and manipulate that (see the Gremlin and the Police Interceptors).

Tonight a flash of duh hit me - why don't I search on google images. I did. And there seems to be a bunch of stuff. See here (search for 'car' and 'top view').

Hey Styx,
I found the answer to better counters! Go to
and download it. It's a free 3-D rendering program from google. What's great about it is that you can borrow car models that other people have made and posted online - for free - and position the camera above it for a top down view.

Wow, that looks like a great tool, thanks Havok!
