anyway to import existing tracks in 3ds max?

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by _brawler_, Aug 5, 2009.

  1. i know about the btb gmt importer, but other tracks like isi tracks or tracks from rfcentral are .gbd or scn i believe..there is no .mas or gmat?

    anyway to do this other than using 3dsimed which i dont really wanna buy since my trial is up...i have 3dsmax 6,7,8,9

    it is a great way to using objects from other tracks or venues.


    thank you!
     
  2. yep... there's an add-in script to import gmotor stuff into 3ds... has to be rF format... takes ages.... generally messes up the materials.. only works on 3ds 6 & 7 (maybe 8) - whichever versions the export tools work with.... but it's the only option you have....

    can't link you up... but google should sort you right out....
     
  3. Only messes the materials because the import script isn't entirely correct.

    Attached is the proper script. It goes in 3dsMax#\Scripts\Startup\

    Also you cannot export objects without all DX levels being set, and materials being set.

  4. wooooooo! much appreciated mate....

    i'm not even going to confess to how many materials i've corrected by hand thanks to my dodgy version.... :faint:
     
  5. hey thanks for the replies guys!

    im not sure maybe i messed up the question, i want to be able to import tracks from isi and rfactorcentral, there are no .mas or gmat files for these tracks.

    for example

    Montreal for rfactor, the locations folder i have

    Montreal.gpd
    Montreal.scn

    and the others are aiw and cam files

    there are no gmotor materials in these like btb exports too?


    any ideas, and thanks again for the responses guys!
     
  6. Erm, there are mas files. GameData\Locations\Montreal

    They might be disguised as MS Access icons with their extensions hidden, but they are in there.
     
  7. thank you so much man thats exactly what it was, they were disguised...how did you know to look there? lol :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:



    thanks again guys for all the help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  8. I have Windows show me the file extensions, so things like .txt and .exe get shown. Strangely though, the .mas extension is still hidden, but since I could see the others, it was just a process of elimination.
