Where to start with modification...
Hi, I have been trying for 7-8 months now to modify my jka model or getting help and nothing...

I have a .glm model
I need to modify the shape of the Cape and make it more smooth/realistic when walking...
where to start ?
plz i really need help, give me some advice...

Step 1: Buy 3D Studio Max 4.x, 5 or 6.

and what can i do with the free XSI mod tool 4.2.0
cause i have that...

Psyk0Sith 02-22-2006 12:56 PM

You could also try it, but i doubt their exporter will be compatible, carcass is picky when it comes to XSI files.

so i have to buy the 3ds max and it'll work with the Glm ?

Psyk0Sith 02-22-2006 02:24 PM

I cannot certify that max 6 and above will work (6 should work in theory because some modders i know used max 6). I know for a fact that Max 4 and 5 do work.

Yes, Max 6 and up still works, but not for vehicles, you need Max 5 and below for vehicles.

i just need to do a modification on my personal model

Fal Matrix 2r 02-22-2006 02:46 PM

oh and is this the good link

is 3DS max 8 ok ?

Fal Matrix 2r 02-25-2006 09:33 AM

...anyone ?

Psyk0Sith 02-25-2006 01:11 PM

Darth Viper said it would work (i cannot confirm at this point but he's probably right)

I'm guessing you want to get the 30 day trial version? if so, you better be a fast learner ;).

Fal Matrix 2r 02-26-2006 07:18 AM

lol gonna be hard to learn alone but i'm kinda good at it
you got any tutorials ?

Psyk0Sith 02-26-2006 01:25 PM

The tutorials i have are for creating character rigs for JA and it wont teach you all you need to know about max in 30 days ;).

Modifying a .glm isnt a simple task like click and save, you have to re-do the whole character export process and then compile it.

If you're still interested, have a look:

Max 6 or above will also work for vehicles, it just has an animation bug, so you cant really make new animations.
XSI Mod tools will work for vehicles, and player models for Jedi Academy, ask Minilogoguy, he uses it, I also believe some other filefront modders use it, but I'm not positive.

Fal Matrix 2r 03-02-2006 09:17 AM

whats easier for what i need to do ?

XSI or 3DS Max ?

Psyk0Sith 03-02-2006 02:33 PM

For me 3D max is easier because i've been using it for almost 6 years. You'll have to see for yourself.

Blender is also compatable and free
