yes it is true, you can find many other creases ,sometimes, by folding all of the long "structural" creases . as far as box pleating is a little different, which I cant help with due to lack of practice with box pleating except for Kamiyas phoenix.

Awesome topic, thanks.
Life is like a movie; it won't be enjoyable if all your focusing about is what's going to happen when it's over.

Hi Draco, I just tried that Wolf and figured the main reference:

Red marks the central reference

That's my third CP, happy I managed to find it alone! :)

I am thinking about trying Satoshi's Phoenix 3.5 from cp soon. I got paper that was way too thick though.... I haven't done to may cps yet, but most were completed. I actually think cps are more fun than diagrams personally.

The only CP I have ever managed to fold successfully was Langs Stetson (from his website) was very simple and he even indicated the valley and mountains.

every other CP I have tried have ended up being the all too common crunched ball :(

does anyone know of guides so you can start at the very very basic and work your way up?

Yeah a good starter CP would be the dobsonfly, it's pretty straightfoward, and there should be a topic on this site to guide you if you need help. I started with that one on Anna's advice
