tablet or mouse?

Hi Robert, I think that actually a majority of people overall are using a mouse.

You can use either one just as well - it's not required to use a tablet, it is just that unlike other 3D / CAD programs MoI is set up to work smoothly with a pen tablet if you want.

> Is one better over the other?

Not really... But if you don't currently have a pen tablet then probably you'd be more comfortable sticking with the mouse.

But the pen tablet is really great if you do regular drawing with a pencil and paper and want to try and replicate a more similar feel on the computer.

> Also what tablet is recommended?

I'd recommend the Intuos tablets from Wacom.
