Ah yes, that fixed it. Thanks smile.gif

A hell of a lot needs reorientating, but I'm gettin there. Out of interest, is there any way to lessen the amount of faces that need reorientating?

Do you kow that a blue face in Sketchup is actually invisible and the gold faces are visible? So if you want to reorient them in Sketchup, simply right click the face and select "Reverse faces". That will turn the blue face into a gold one and vice versa, so you don't have to reorient them in Zmodeler.

You just saved me so much time, [email protected] smile.gif

Both of you rock.

Seriously.

 

However... for some reason I've got two identical (from what I can tell) models of my house sitting right on top of eachother when I import it into ZModeler. Is the second one important, or can I simply delete it?

Neither can prelight a model. However, you can change the shadow settings and change the time in Sketchup. This lights up or darkens the model, I haven't tested it out yet but it works.

amazing work, sketchup seems to have some promising features and seems to be

much more building-design oriented tool, now we can use it with gta, while all other programs are completely useless to make buildings.

First try to scale it to 10%.

Check if you can see anything. If you only see lines, scale again, by 40% or so.

Then it must be visible.

Sketchup isn't a free program, you can obtain a free 8 hour trail of it

 

Haha, thats f*cking pathetic!!! 8 hours??? lol!!

 

Umm, sorry... Anyways, can the model be made in Zmodeler? The program looks like 3dsmax itself....

ya... I'm getting a similar problem. I export my model as a .3ds, and I open zmodeler 2.2, but then I dont have an option to import a .3ds, and I looked on my export list and I cant even export a .dff! So I'm not sure what's up.

when I import my .3ds model into zmod, I click on the user view, then check solid, but all I get is a blue version of my model, which doesnt help me much. I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong.

thanks

When you open up Zmod (1.07), click on the Materials Editor and you define where the texture files are. wink.gif

 

As for scaling, you did click the Modify button (the right side of the screen) then click Scale, and then CTRL+click while the Model is highlighted?
