Can someone tell me why some of the lwo files in TM won't show up in TM?In particular I'm trying to make a liquid tank using Liquid3High.lwo and i can't get it to show uo in the game.I'd appreciate any help I can get.There's some others that look interesting also but I can't get them to work.

simple answer (though it took me a while) they are not triangulated (lacking the final step to be used) I've been a little leary of using them for distributed mods as they are copyrighted material and to use them, one would have to alter them, and include them in your mod. lda has not given its blessing to do so(though they might if asked nicely, then again might not)

Welcome to the game, the forums, and our community, Rooster5372! Hope to see you on the servers soon.

Yup...RexR is correct. You'll find lots of the meshes aren't triangulated. I use the 3D Browser Light tool from www.mootools.com. Version 6.1 is available fer free as all you need to do is register. I personally use the 5.0 version as it doesn't have the ads and it allows me to save the 3DS files as LWO.

There's a lot of raw material tucked away in Tread Marks.

The general rule is that we don't mind if you modify our stuff as long as it is distributed for free and that you acknowledge in a readme file what the item was derived from our work.... copyright Longbow Digital Arts, etc.

That said, if you want to develop a full game by modding Tread Marks, we can come to some arrangement and if the early results look promising, might help with custom code changes and pitching a budget publisher....(not eGames).

And BTW... sneaking and sniping in are popular these days....

Does that tank look something like this?

Kinda like a Zodiac-S...

Too bad no one probably wants it...

That's it,but I've got a different turret in mind,if I can remember where I saw it and can get permission to use it from the maker.
