nice blog but here is the thing, what is wrong with overlaping uv's and mirroring them, what are the cons of overlapping them and why is this method better in the case of uv? thanks

Thank you @Fcardoso The volumetric light is available in the latest 2018.3 beta. In the visual environment setting, there is a new option to select Volumetric light fog. The screen I shared is from 2018.2 during that time I was using a script to enable it :)

I will help you start moving in 3D, showing you how to navigate Blender’s 3D viewport and how to add, remove, and manipulate objects. Additionally I’ll introduce you to Blender interface, helping you overcome it’s quirks and use them to your advantage. Next steps? If these Blender Basics have piqued your interest then the next step is to learn modeling. Lucky for you we have a complete course designed just to get you started with the Fundamentals of Mesh Modeling in Blender. The mesh modeling fundamentals is a part of our membership, which is built specifically for aspiring Blender artists like yourself, enabling you to ramp up your skills quick through clear, concise, and structured learning. If you’re using Blender with anything but a 3-button mouse, then read this page to learn how to Emulate a 3-button Mouse.

Yeah no, don’t watch this if you want to learn to model for games. This instructor focuses on art for offline rendering so if you follow him your head will be filled with fallacies such as “triangles are bad, use quad only”. Avoid like the plague.
