[REL|Tool] Collision File Editor II

Applying optimization more than once won't help anything. Neither do tons of smilies.

 

And I don't know any solution other than switching to a "proper" modeling program. tounge.gif

 

And you are sure your mesh isn't flipped or rotated somehow?

In the current release CE2's optimize function welds vertices within a distance of 0.01, removes triangles with identical vertices (also duplicated flipped ones), and removes isolated vertices. This gets rid of degenerated triangles and everything that's "invisible", but afaik it doesn't solve all Sketchup related problems.

Would increasing that number(0.01) fix more of the "invisible walls"?

Increasing that distance could run the risk of removing legitimate faces?

Probably. That's hardcoded atm, but I wanted to make it user-definable once I add an options dialog. But I doubt I'll update it anytime soon.

Yea. Click "Edit > Batch Conversion...", add all col files you want to convert, tick "Generate Lighting", "Material Conversion", and "Optimize" (not "Minimize Bounding Volumes"!); select "Col 3" as output version, press OK and in the lighting generator choose your lighting (I'd recommend simple non-directional lighting at ~30%).

what so does this mean it lights all the col's the same like pre lighting or am i way off the mark, and maybe even holding the wrong end of the stick smile.gif

Sorry for being part of the big Bump but, there isnt a way to give a lil clean and brushing to this awsome tool, maybe the enough to stop it from creating invisible walls and well the most important to be able to import shadow mesh data into an already made col

the invisable walls are most of the times caused by the modeling proces itself not the tool that is making the colfiles for you, its also caused by the tools you are exporting the files with for making a colfile.

 

most of the times the model isnt optimized or stripped down enough which causes small faces (long small stretched ones) which can be experienced as walls in the game.

Knock knock, hey Steve M., if you're still active, I'm trying to export my vehicle mod for GTA SA from zmod2 but for it to not crash the game the collision mesh has to have an "external state" id number that is applied from the properties menu in zmod2 to the collision mesh, you wouldn't know what it or they are would you? It's been a while since my last mod and I've since forgotten.

There is a problem with W-10.

Files collision for mapping objects are not working.

I did not understand, however, if it depends on ZM2 or CollEditor][... :/
