HUGE BREAKTHROUGH

Created a mod you want others to know about? Here's the place!

Postby Doc 42 » Sun Jul 15, 2007 2:03 pm

Its not a case of modding the models in. Its writeing a program. A MAXscript or something that will export TMD files into something like .OBJ or someother common format. As well. It would need to be capable of re-compileing the models into TMD as well. As long as the model is compiled in TMD format. It can be put into the game. As a test, some people renamed a rex model and then cloned the rex, using the new model. Sure it was exactly the same as the normal rex but it shows that new models CAN be added. I have looked into building an import/export script but it seems like it would need a very skilled programer. My advice is to search through other projects where Fan made tools are used. Maybe try get the people who made those tools to help us make these ones. My advice for the future, never anneounce something like this untill you have the means to prove it.
Same with any mod. Dont announce it till you have some work done.
All the same. Good luck. I hope the guy you have helping you really does have an import/export script.

I agree but he did say this
I'm going as fast as I can to not mess up.
It's bassicly you get it in a program that shows you it in Wireframe and you just pull out every point and make it look right. But the models require you to make your own Wireframe(same program). The 1st thing I said is the resizing part the 2nd is the making a new dinosaur. But you can change the already made Dino's animations and sounds. You can also do the same thing with the New Dino your making you basiclly start from scrath. Just tell that to them I think they'll understand.

cool! Well I would like to be as much help as possible so if this is any use I think that most dinos use the same animations. Such as all large carnivours, Gali-Dyro. They are all shared with something else.

Well before attempting a new dino it would make sense to bring out a re-sized one, no?
