Exellent job, did you say your're adding bones exporting (in the future)?

Does this mean that we will be able to export skeletal meshes and rigged characters for IV?

@City_Poke912: WDD's are just a bunch of WDR files in one file. So the draw distance is done in the WPL files not in de model files wink.gif

 

@EduardKoeleJuck: I hope so smile.gif

For what exactly is this? does this also support "col like files" for GTA4 so we can actually walk against or stand on imported objects we made by scratch?

i wanted to say this as well: im so happy that this kind of option is finally being developed for us mod makers. i dont understand sh*t in format making or plugins or how to code them etc... so i cant rly contribute anything.

but i just love how we all sat down on our asses and waited for a saint like Prince-Link to make this kind of tool for us. its like "yep its still isnt possible, but were waiting for ehm.. somebody to make it..."

 

i guess the wait is finally over?

When can we expect those exporters?

Somewhere this/next week smile.gif it's still in testing/coding stage but is almost finished.

It's Sunday now, and we don't have plugins yet.

@MinnieMan121249: If you read the first post you can see that it doesn't do bones yet. That part I am still working on. If I release it now you can only do buildings/weapons.

@City_Poke912: Read my answer to MinnieMan121249 wink.gif
