Sketchup to Game...

 

The tutorial covers, modeling in sketchup, texturing in sketchup, importing / exporting the dff, col file in 3DS Max and Gmax, creating TXDS, and using MEd.

 

I am going to be making an html version avaible shortly, but at the moment, its in PDF.

 

http://www.shadowsrealm.co.uk/susatut.zip 13MB: sorry about the size.

Adobe Reader.

 

@Gangsta Killa This is really good, Im gonna give this a try. smile.gif

 

 

EDIT: Need Help.

 

I add my col, dff and txd to the archive then rebuild it, open up MED and it loads 95% of map files then quits out. sad.gif

Now when there not in the archive it dont quit out.

Any ideas, how to fix this ?

nope, free sketchup cant export gmax files.

neither can sketchup pro but it can export in .3ds format and gmax can read that

I got a little prob using MEd v0.32

 

1) The black screen stays black

2) I don't see scroll bar, tick box, ...

 

See screen, I think it because of my System

I followed this tutorial and it helped me out a lot!

The only problem is, my model DOES show up in MEd.

But it DOES NOT show up in the game.

 

I'm making a simple house model for GTA III.

I figured out that the COL file can't be in the image.

The collision file shows up in the game, I ran into it >.<

But I don't see the house.

 

Why is this?

AGGGGHHH , wished i'd looked into Gmax a little further because Gmax

 

Doesnt export 3DS files! and the Tutorial suggests either '3DSmax' or 'Gmax' !

 

So for anyone else following this tutorial ...

 

 

DONT USE GMAX !

 

There is no Export/Import Script ..as far as im aware

 

 

Anyhoo.. I completed the process with 3DSmax

(The only other flaw I found in the tutorial is at the end it says 'choose your IPL and click install. And go to file -> save install. And that’s it, you’ve done'

 

It should be 'Click Save' (also I dont get why his end picture shows the bus ontop of the obect he created and not in it?)

 

Apart from that its an awesome tutorial for the dumbest of newbie wannabie monkey brain modders.

 

Here was my result , a storm drain tunnel

How would this help if I wnted to, say, create a mountain? And then make a tunnel go through it? I'm planning on totally redesigning the map into a mini Japan with Tokyo and Mt. Fuji. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
