: well, if you want each body part to be a seperate md2, then it would need to be seperate objects. but if you plan on making this guy as 1 md2, then it must be one object.
No, thats not quite true, you can make a model out of as many
objects as you want, the quake2 guy for example is made out of
around 7 objects (or smth) , I talk about objects, not files.
You don´t need make morphing animations... you can also
make simple pivot animations. The quake2 guy is made out
of a mixture.
Though morphing animations look more real on biological objects
because multi object animations always look kinda mechanical.
Paul Steed made a pretty good mixture of both.
Whatsoever, the md2 can be as well as mdl´s made out
of multiple objects.
