I made a single list of all the plugins and tutorials given in the thread "NEW weekly tut and tool thread !". In that thread links are given, but often no descriptions so I tried to complete that. I did this work, because it is hard to read the whole thread and pick out those pearls. After reading someone complaining about that, I thought about writing "pleeease dear moderators, create a single list of all those cool links and update it weekly" - but I do not want to be nasty, so I made that list on my own. I do not want to kill the thread it is based on, but I hope, that some of you may volunteer to keep up that simple link list, maybe in that visually distinguished form.

Thanks for this listing !!

I finaly got out of the chemistry labs, and got a new tutorial down. No it's not another lw one, but related as it's for those asking me how to make seamless textures all the time.

Making Tileable & Seamless Textures (http://www.highpoly3d.com/writer/tutorials/tileable/seamless.htm)

I"ll try and fix any typos and other problems soon. Tell me if there is anything I over-looked.

I was just wondering if there were any tutorials out there on materials (i.e. plastic, metal, wood, paper, stone) Not so much procedurals because I don't like the way they look but instead the lighting, specularity settings, diffuse, luminosity, glossiness, etc.
