There is no such program that can convert a DDS into a 3DS.....<take a breath, count to 10> because a "DDS" is a 2D (two dimensions) texture, a flat picture, with stickers, and colours, while 3DS is a 3D (3 dimensions) shape with no colours at all. You need a 3D vehicle first, and then you paint it to create the DDS

DDS = picture used for colouring 2D skins
3DS = 3 dimensional vehicle shape

They are not the same thing, and if anyone could turn a picture into a shape, we'd all be converting pictures of a Aston Martins etc. into the real cars for free! :roflol:

You can still find 3D models and 2D skins for older versions of TM like Sunrise (or just buy TM United that has all of the Sunrise environments as well as TMO and Nations too! Doh!) from sites like :

http://trackmania.southmoon.net/cars/

....but as the older games are part of TM United, the old models and skin sites are drying up. So search and download them while you still can, or buy a current version of the same game, which is simpler, and still alive and well.

Really interesting ideo game and simulation developers, advertising agencies, news agencies and more get their projects done on time through TurboSquid.
