Need help with item.

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by jim deo, Aug 21, 2010.

  1. Hello.
    I have an item I need converted to use in btb.It was created in google sketchup.
    I cant get it to pack correctly for use (crashes xpacker).
    If anyone can help with this small item it would make my day.
    Thanks in advance.
    Jim
    I included both the dae and skb files.

  2. That stinks....
    I tried using 6 but it does not work very good.
    Circles do not auto divide themselves for eracing..Lines do not intersect the same..
    What took me 15 min in 7 is going to take me all day in 6.
    7 is a totally different program as as far as ease of use.
    Wish there was a way to make my current skb files work.
    I have so much to do with the track taking time to learn yet another
    program for one important part is going to set me back a bit.

    I thought there was an option in S7 to save the file as S6. I don't know, I use S6.
     
  4. There is!
    Thanks


    edit...
    I still can't figure it out.
    Is there a step by step guide on how to get a sketch up item into btb?

    I cant follow those vids as I cant see exactly where everything needs to be set to get it to work correctly.
    I gave it a shot but am getting error messages when I try and save the dds.in adobe.
    Can't I just use exactly what I drew in skup and get it into xpac?
     
  5. What error message (if any) are you getting when the XPacker crashes?
     
  6. I can now get xpac to take the object file.
    It shows as a x-pack in btb but when you select the x-pack
    there are on objects to place.

    Getting closer I guess....
    I am not using any self made textures as of now.
    Just direct ports of the object/colors from skup.
    Maybe I need to create textures?
     
  7. No they won't work without textures. I had a look at that file and it has no mapping either. The only way for you to texture it is just make color pics for each color it uses. A white pic 128 x 128 .dds a blue and a grey to replace the ones it has.
     
  8. Very good.
    I will try that out.
    Thanks.
