Blaster is a weapon, that all humans carry since they are born and the only gun you can't sell. Why? Because it's free. And slow and weak and nobody actually wants it from you. In fact, if Murnatan & Guns magazine would exist, Blasters advertisment would have been:
"Better than nothing (unless nothing has an unlimited energetic ammo)".

All that means you won't probably switch to Blaster until you absolutely need do. But it doesn't bother the Blaster. He just waits. Waits like a friend for the moment when you need him.

I saw Total Commander in the vid!!!! :D

So, basically, you divide the model into basic shapes, spread 3d shapes on 2d surface and paint them, then reverse the process?

Something like that. The process of unwrapping a model to 2D texture is called UV mapping (not in the video) - to each point it assigns a position on the texture, like a paper model. The UV coordinates are stored with the model and GPU/shader then maps the texture back to the model during rendering.
