View Full Version : Level and character creation with Gmax

04-05-2002, 07:55 PM
There's a free 3D modeling program from the creators of 3D studio max devloped especialy for gamers and level creators.
I downloaded it from there site (there's a link on www.jediknightii.com under resorces called Gmax).
Anyway, there's an optional package available for download call Gmax Tempest which allows Quake III level and character creation.

Have any of you reserched into this or have any inside knowlege on it?

If somebody's fooled around with this already (any of my Unreal Modeling buddies out there??), if one of you guys wanna pass me some info or tips it'd be cool.

I think i read about this in a magazine once, it's supposedly compatible with many games, including half-life and quake 3.

That was a long time ago, i'll download it and see how it looks ;)

I use Max professionally...any idea if Tempest is available for either R3.1 or R4 of Max? I'd LOVE to use that as an editing package!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gmax is not compatible with half-life. And the tempest package is only for editing levels, not player models, for quake 3. And it is only for gmax. It's not that great, either. The interface is nothing like the other level editors(like qeradiant) and it is nothing like 3ds max either, so it is really hard to use.
