Thumbs up

For example, the creation of Opts from DXF file formats is easy (See darkjedi.com), however, I think you are looking for a mesh creator (a person who models the ship, and creates the DXF file). You are likely to find a person who creates these files at swma.net, or maybe even here at this message board.
Right now, I am not that skilled in making these files, but I might be able to help you some, as I am trying to learn how to make opts myself using premade DXF models

Zraii,

I am currently creating OTPs and DXFs using 3DStudio Max r3.1
Though I must say that I am not greatly experienced in this field of editing, only started a week ago but I've already built my own ship.

Hey guys, How can I post a screenshot here to show off my new ship?

To post an image, place the file on a web server, and use the BB's built-in [img] tag pair.

Okay question about 3d studio max.

I am using v2.5, i also use rhino3d , in fact I HATE modeling in max.

Can the textures you use in 3d studio max show up in the game without using the texture extracter or using the methods tried outside of 3dmax? This refers mainly to difuse bitmaps.

So do I, that's why I just bought a copy of AutoCad 1.4 from my local paper.

Uh, if that question was directed at me, well I don't texture my Models in 3DSmax, I just make the wireframe and thats it, then export that to DXF fiel format to use in ACE_DXF. I edit existing or create my own textures in Paintshop Pro 5 and use those. Besides I don't think the DXF file you use to build a new ship contains any texture info, it's just all mesh, face and vertex data I think.

All textures that appear in the game are allocated to the models during creation of the OPT file as far as I know. When you import a DXF to create an OPT, all the faces in all meshes are set to the ACE_DXF default texture. That's why texturing is a pain in the butt (for me anyway), you have to go and make sure every face and texture is rotated and orientated just right.
