It's better to wait for skinned mesh exporting to be done because it's such a great feature.

One question Link, have you been able to get a bones-skinned player/ped mesh in-game yet or are you still working towards it?

why? he also can rewlease it without the bones feature and then he can make a new version WITHe the bones feature

+1

Release it this, what you donenow (wdr/wdd), when work on bones will be finished, update it.

oh noes, the same flaw as kams script. the models have sharp edges cuz of the texture lawout. no worries, it just means: spending a big more time (smoothing those edges) to get a quality model.

nope the model is not welded thats the problem its not about the texture.

imho, bones for peds or niko are nowhere near as important as col for a map. With you being one of the only people even working on tools at all, it would be wise to make a mapping pipeline before you care about weapons. Personally, I will never change cars or weapons again until they come with a map, and probably still wont, because the only thing worth changing is really the maps, and the other stuff can be fun, but it's just... you know... it's nothing special like a map or real mission script.

 

cars, scripts, peds, clothes - all that stuff is truly useless in the same map, really. Sure, some people just like a new car, or want a whigger niko, etc, but I mean, the only thing needed for a real mod is maps, 2 1/2 years later still no col. Col is your most important obstacle imo, you should focus on that and mapping, then move on to bones.

 

I say this for the sake of modding, though I realize this is a hobby and learning experience Shadow, it might be worth it to put bones on hold and make new maps possible first and foremost (the only real aspect of GTA modding that still really exists in any active form and isn't just rips from other games or reskins of clothes - sure, there is scripting going on, but they aren't really doing much but making hacks)

 

Good luck either way, we made grit like GTA (actually, it's easier would you agree?) because GTA modding wasn't happening in IV, it will be neat to see this happen, but might be too late. I will definitely use them and this thread, we could rebirth GTA modding. I would much prefer IV for the urban cross dev and not SA tounge.gif (I will only put urban to SA if someone else does it because I am spoiled by real time light and don't want to prelight lol)

 

Does this work in lesser versions of max than 2010?

 

ed; also, I still want beta test :x

Kinky. Will be interesting to see how this progresses.

 

It uses Shadow-Mapper's new model dll files for the exporting and importing. Which makes it easy to update all my tools (which use models) at once

How exactly do you get Max to interface with your dll (.dle/.dli plugin, maxscript, etc) ?

Max script is able to call .net functions.

 

 

dotnet.loadAssembly("ShadowUtils.dll")su = dotNetClass "ShadowUtils.ModelUtil"

ive got an idea for a good ingame example, add a silencer to the ak, (no need to texture its a test) and move the muzzle forward to see if it works and test ingame, this will atleast tease us a bit biggrin.gif

Like I can model a silencer tounge.gif I can't model sh*t. If you don't believe it works try dff2wdr the first tool to create custom ingame models wink.gif

crashes and crashes, alot of reinstalls but see me here, thats the way i do it HELL YEAH! and wont doupt will do the same in IV tounge.gif

What about screen with WDD file? (like sl_ks_superlod1.wdd with parts of Brooklyn Bridge)

The ped screen is a WDD file wink.gif But I'll load the wdd you asked.

Looks like there is still something wrong with the materials when I load a WDD and I think I know what the problem is. (remember those are LODs)

Exellent work decoding the new files link, you're a gta mod pioneer. I can't wait until it gets released. smile.gif

Will there be a direct 'pipeline' for exporting map objects directly into ShadowMapper/IV? or will it be similar to older methods (exporting files and adding them to an img manually).

ähm , prince . I think these .wdd are right;)

 

These is a LOD .wdd and every LOD in this .wdd is for an other model^^

 

 

EDIT: oh, i dindt read your last sentence^^ tounge.gif

Prince: This will give us the nice nooby shortcut of max 2010 that if the mesh has missing materials and we have them inside a folder we can lead max to read that folder and then all the scene gets textured?

Textures are not stored in WDD, like in WDR.

WTD for that file is ks_superlod1.wtd. And make a shot, of course smile.gif
