A total newbie problem
Posted 23 October 2006 - 10:41 PM
- I have not 3D Studio installed here on my computer ATM.
- 123do seems to be an object editor but I didn't find links to it.
What programs to use? How to do it? Hints and advices are hugely welcome too.
Thanks in advance.

123DO seems to work fine (I just downloaded the file available on site) but I can not enable the icon to generate the 3do file. That's curious the program is not accepting my own textures (both 4 and 16 bits, generated in Photoshop, in case a stonewall texture). I tried with some from other tracks and it worked (randomly I chose a car texture, just to test), but anyway, I can't generate any 3do file, even if I fill all polygons with textures.
The idea is to create a "upper part" for a tunnel (see red box on attached image).
There are 4 points, I linked them in clockwise way, I tried until to generate the backface and nothing.
What I can do?

I'm sending the file, probably a little messy, together with the texture I desire to apply.
(before someone think anything, it doesn't make sense try to copy or protect by authoral rights a simple rectangle, no? The image was picked from a freeware site )

The 'create 3do' button doesn't work

until makes sense now...
I tried it too, Luna, and the 123do said the path of file or applications was invalid because there were spaces. OK, moved the install from "D:\Arquivos de Programas\OneTwo3do" to "D:\Jogos\OneTwo3do" and worked. The program is not a barrier to me anymore. Until the textures are good.
Time to try more complex objects.

objects put on left are OK, no problems, objects on right are clipping with the track (still about my tunnel, it will be iluminated by torches in both sides, left side OK, right side clipping)
at TSO file is as follows the entrances:
[ 19]: 3, 4437.504, 6, 3.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, torch
[ 20]: 3, 4437.504, -6, 3.0, 180.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0, torch
could someone confirm how to put an object on right side of track? It seems that negative values of lateral position is not very well accepted by GPL, no?

...erm, unless its a SRB, which need to be handled differently...
BTW sorry if this is all obviously to you!! If this isn't your problem post a screenshot of the clipping.

these series of objects are torches I am using to my tunnel lighting (worthy to say it is in a sightly left turn).
Problem 1: on far view, objects disappeared.
Attempt 2: rotate 180º on the own 3do file and use one for each side.
Problem 2: things kept unchanged
Attempt 3: try -5 on placing the torches.
Problem 3: they are flying in the tunnel now. using 5.something the last torch only was clipped with the wall.
Attemp 4: change the 3do again, the X range was 0 to +1.5, and it was moved to -1.5 to 0.
Problem 4: none bug fixed. Only some very slightly details to leave the tunnel definitelly concluded.
Hope my track is not very light inside it in LCD monitors
Sooner my next doubt
