Alcohol and tobacco companies make billions each year selling their deadly drugs, but the United States continues to suppress marijuana and other marijuana related products due to the government's involvement with the alcohol and tobacco companies. Each year the government imposes more and more taxes on both these drugs, and continues to line their own personal pockets with the tax money as well as the money they make persecuting people for possession of marijuana. God created marijuana for all of us, it grows in nearly any environment, and smoking marijuana involves no processing what so ever like Crack, Meth, Cocaine, Heroin, or LSD.

Legalizing marijuana would create all kinds of jobs, new taxes to support the government's lazy butt, and keep the average pot head off the streets who are having to buy from shady drug dealers.

However, I've found that the "templates" leave several things to be desired. They aren't set up for accurate matching across the UV Seams, and it's difficult to "find your place" when working with them. The original idea to subdivide the Avatar models came from Chip Midnight's excellent templates. I took the models, subdivided them in LightWave, and used the tools there to make Vector UV Maps for all the parts. Then I added some things in Adobe Illustrator to get maps that are much easier for me to work with. These have the non-subdivided polygons in different colors for each map, so you can tell at a glance which portion of the map you are working on.
