Then you better get cutting. You can take the measured circumferance of your head and make sure the hole matches it, or you can wing it.

Or Doom's suggestion works too. ;-)

You know, I gotta be honest. The more and more that I look at my helmet, yours, and others, the more that the little "single" pieces of paper that get glued on (usually a small triangle or rectangle), are usually the sore spots on the helmet.

I think I'm going to have to work to try to eliminate those.

so is that my bad or yours?

No ones bad, just a general statement. I see that a lot of people are just completely ecstatic about Pepakura, but overall I think we can make it better.

I know what you mean Frizz. The Helmet for the H1 MC is a lot more like a terrible jigsaw puzzle than a folding project.

How do you think those problems could be fixed? Maybe use the corresponding face check option and forcefully attach the triangles to the adjoining folded pieces?

Color of in-game model with light and shadow on it.

This is an older pic though. Anybody got a good shot from the beta?

No more like these, third is probably most accurate. I pulled these from one of the trailer screenshots.

To get it to look closer to what the metallic color appears to be, it should be more of an olive or tan.

Battle Damage is a very, very cool effect if done correctly and with style.
Here's some tips.
-Less is more
-Look at the MC's armor, you can see places where there is battle damage.
-Some damage includes: bullet marks, plasma scorches, chipped paint, cracked pieces, etc...
