Need help -> 3d model problem

Post by temecula » 10 Jun 2008 08:14

Hello folks,

I have obtained a 3d model of a 1972 buick riviera boattail, and it is beautiful

I was in a .skp file (google sketchup) which i then converted into a 3ds, and then used TM to make it into a gbx file. I renamed the file as it told me, made icon and diffuse, etc, but when i try to look at it ingame, it shows as a stadium car with my skin for the riviera on it.

I would happily give ALL my coppers to anyone who can take the 3ds or skp file and turn it into a usable model for TM. If not, could someone tell me what the precise process would be for making it work? I;ve tried to 2 english 3d model tutorials i found for it to no avail.

The skp file is located at:

http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/ ... 6201a79843
And i could upload the 3ds file to one of my sites if someone thinks they can help! I have always wanted this make and model of car for TM, it is beautiful!!

i thinbk its a bug, i had the same problem with my 3D model.
Try selecting an other car, exit the game and restart it, your model should be good now.

Gah, that did not work either.

Anyone with experience think the cars is as awesome as I do and wants to give it a shot making it into a model, lemme know, I will shell out all my coppers for it.

All meshes after Reset XForm can be imported into TM, no exceptions.

I could have a look at it. I need the .3ds file, or you can tell me how you converted a sketchup file to a .3ds. I use 3DMax version 7. I also use Rhino for file conversion purposes.
I only run TMUF, so i can only test there.
I can make it work.
