Thanks BuckeyeBob, but great work isn’t fast, and fast work isn’t great. winkngrin

Great Fullofit. It seems you have fallen into modding trap. Now no more flying, just modding... wink

Fullofit that's outstanding! Can't wait to see how your creation fits into the mod I'm working on.

Robert, as soon as you have the opportunity to get this into an .m3d file I can give it a try.

There is supposed to be a way of having one texture sheet with multiple parts on it and those individual parts can be assigned to the model. This is how the texture sheets for the aircraft are done.

Are you able to accomplish it this way?
It would make it much simpler I think.
Also wonder if you can export as '.m3d' format.
I have no experience with 3D max so I don't know .

Fullofit.

The following link talks about how to export from 3D Max to GMAX. Can you check this out and see if it works with your Max version. If so it would be a great time saver.

Jara, I hope you’re wrong. I prefer to fly. Besides, I’m not modding, I’m modeling. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Robert, I don’t own 3D Max. I only have some experience with it. All this is pure G-Max. I’ll try to do the texture mapping today, but before I start I wonder if you can take the G-Max model and import it into CFS3 to see if it even works. It would be a shame to waste all this time mapping if the model doesn’t work.

Fullofit, I can't import it into the CFS3 without some form of texture. If I do, it won't display properly. Can you just wrap it with any old texture and give me a link to it?

Thanks for all you are doing here. In fact, I have hopes that you can put together some kind of tutorial on how you are doing all this, so that I can learn something from you. It doesn't need to be perfect, I can always go to you for clarification and once I fully understand the process, I will redo the tutorial for all.

Best Regards;

Robert, I’ve PM’d you a link to the model with a template texture. Took a bit of head-scratching. Hope it works out.
Shredward, you could actually tell the difference between a hill and a slag heap?!

Yeah, they loomed large on the RB1 landscape, as they do in real life. They are scattered in an arc all along the front in the Artois/Flanders section. It would be brilliant if we could plant them on the WOFF landscape

Ah but don't forget to have some part glowing red and issuing some smoke from the freshly dumped slag biggrin

Yeah, when you stand facing east on the summit of Vimy Ridge, under certain light and skies, it is eerily like looking in to Mordor. I suspect that is where the inspiration came to JRRT, just as the inspiration for the Dead Marshes came from those black pools along the Somme

So taking that into account...

JRRT who was given credit for being indirectly responsible for the entire world of D & D through his books and ability to project his thoughts into images through world.

At least on really good thing that came out of such horror.

And of course from D&D eventually came TESV Skyrim... So we win.

I still play D&D every chance I get, as well as Skyrim Special Edition. Those are the only two games that rival my WOFF UE playing time anymore since giving up on MMOs a while ago. Hard to pick a favorite. Mostly depends on my mood at the moment.

when I first saw this thread, I thought it would be pretty neat to learn how to do this stuff, but then it turned out that I can't even open the Readme file!?!? I tried word, wordpad, notepad, renaming the extension, and I get either a flat-out can't open error message, or at best a bunch of hexa decimal. I apologize to all you guys for so drastically lowering the general intelligence level of this community, but maybe this is a hidden test that I've failed

One of two things is likely the cause. You either have a corrupted download or the file was corrupted during the upload. I will chk it out.

LOftc, I just downloaded it and tried it out and it is fine. Try a clean download, I suspect yours is a corrupt one.

Hi Robert,
I had tried redownloading with same results. I was hoping for "3rd time lucky, but still get these two things with word and wordpad. Also, I can open the 1st RTF readme file; it's the DOC tutorial (which I assume is the important instructions file) that I can't seem to get to.
