Tanks and weapons.... hmm loks like some more compition for me.. jk. Tanks and weapons are very easy to make in TM. all you need is a model (.lwo format) and TExture (.bmp format) the race tank ent file and a projectile.ent file. I recomend creating a folder named ADDONS in the TM Directory. Then create a folder called Entities in the ADDONS folderyou just created. You then should COPY the race tank folder under ENTities in the tm directory to the Entities folder in the addons folder you created. I hope that sounds clear. Any way, just tweek with the files in the folder Addons/Entities/ractank to modifiy the tanks already in the game. Hope you understand. if not just ask

Actually, I sent him an entire thing on what he needs via email:

Go to the Entities directory (inside your TreadMarks directory) and open any of the .ent files in a text editor. As for how to actually make mods, that takes practice :) . Generally you'll want to make all new stuff in the Addons directory (use the same directory tree that the rest of TreadMarks uses for the files...)

Entegrity ( http://treadmarks.vorklift.com/tm_download.php?id=34&mid=339 ) lists what most of the commands do.

For making maps (far harder) take a look at TMapper by Dreamer - http://treadmarks.vorklift.com/tm_download.php?id=20

If you are interested in making meshes (for tanks, weapons, buildings on maps, etc) You'll need to have a 3d program that can export in Lightwave Object (lwo) format. To make this skinnable (non-liquid object) you need UV Unwrapper (aka Lithium Unwrapper) - http://treadmarks.vorklift.com/tm_download.php?id=20

Edit: If you plan on making mods I'm sure most the people here would recomend you download ENTegrety. It's scans for errors! :D

I am having as slight problem. When I tried to open Tmapper on my computer, it shown "System cannot find path specified. I already have the two programs listed on the site needed to use this program. Why doesn't it work? :( :?

Download the "All in One" package: http://www.tmvr.de/uploads/TMapper/TMapperBigInstaller.exe

If you downloaded the "Installer" and the 2 Java packages, it won't work on current OSes.

Also, there is a bug in the path info in the batch file on some systems - make sure that matches.
