Can barely feel my hands. Head feels like it is about to explode. I've probably used at least $100 worth of toilet paper. Food tastes like ****. Weight is going down. Can barely drink without coughing.
Wow that sounds terrible.
You should really go see a doctor if you haven't seen one yet.
Do big companies seriously draw detailed planks(and such) from scratch in 3D games?
Drawing the texture?
It all depends on the style.
Sometimes they will take photos of things and make that into a texture for it other times they may just find a texture they like on the net and use that.
As for the models planks are very easy to model so I would assume that planks are not however full trees I have seen being reused by many different games.
I have never once used an existing model for any of my design work (I think its kind of cheating) but textures for terrain and things that I would like to look realistic I usually grab off the net (I don't have a high quality camera at the moment).
