Hello, im part of a mod and were now at the point of adding animations to some of our models. however a big problem is getting the tank tracks right. i would appreciate any information on how to do this. im looking to keep it under 1000 triangles and be easily animated. thank you

Got another question about this. Is it possible to animate the treads like this if the texture for the track is part of the same texture file as the rest of the tank?
