You will end up jumping through hoops. "The Sims" (original) uses a mesh file called skn and a 256 color bitmap 256x256 for each mesh. Now here's where it gets fun... The body is one file, the head is another and the hands is yet another 6 seperate files. I have yet to touch on the lengthy conversion process. You would then need a bare min of 3 programs. Zmodeler, Skn2Obj and TXD Workshop. confused.gif

 

After all your hard work you would end up with a low resolution sim in your game. Even Vice City peds have more detailed textures and a higher poly count. There is no magic wand.

 

I believe if I were going to make a "Resident Evil" ped or etc. I would get a good screen shot and model it from scratch.

You mean BeeswaX? No, he's doing all from scratch.

This is the wrong forums for you, man. GTANet doesn't supports game-to-another-game conversion, as long as it is from the GTA Franchise.

As stated by other members, it's against forum rules to convert from other games, so you won't find any help from here. You'll find plenty of help getting your own models into San Andreas, but absolutely zero help when it comes to ripping from other games.

 

Best way? Learn to model. Check out some of the topics around here to get a good start.

 

Locked.
