Programming knowledge a must?
Do you HAVE to know how to program? I don't mind learning, as knowlege is power, but this "C++ for Dummies" pdf is just mumbo jumbo, I can't understand any of it. Is programming really a must? I've been modeling for about 5-6 months, and by Facepunch's(Gmod, a Half-life 2 Mod, community) standards, I'm decent. So I have modelling and animation under my belt(more or less, still going to college for it) But are programming classes mandatory when going into thios field?
Also, I'm a senior who waited til the last minute to look for colleges. Can anyone det me on the right track and point me towards a good college. Preferably Lower-east coast or California,
