Note: The XZ Projection--aka top-down projection--is usually the best in most cases, but technically since it will be frozen anyway, it doesn’t really matter which one you pick.

 

 

2) Press Alt+7 to access the Texture Editor.

 

 

3) Edit the UVs as you see fit.

 

 

 

 

4) Freeze your model periodically to reduce the lag to your system.
