KatsBits (previously Quake3Bits), is for anyone interested in making content for games or making games and interactive products. The site has tutorials, resources and information not found elsewhere. Learn the 'how', and more important to the budding developer, the 'why' things are done the way they are, 'principles' rather than 'particulars'. This includes information on making and optimising 3D models and meshes, texture making, general game development hints and tips and a host of other things related to asset and content creation.

So why the change from Quake3Bits to KatsBits?

When Quake3Bits.com was originally set up it was within the content of editing games based on id Software technologies, Quake 3 (now know under the moniker "idTech3") in particular. Over time, and as a natural occurrence associated with editing game content, many other none Quake or idTech based subjects were covered. To reflect this growing change in what turned out to be a 'direction', the sites name was changed to "KatsBits.com" in 2007. And here we are today, a content creation site catering to all manner of production with a focus on Blender but covering many other topics and subjects related to games. Welcome!
