In Topic: Low-skill and out-of-practice 3do editing

Gaus — thanks for the thought. My only experience with 3D tools is in GPL, and that a long time ago.

Ginetto, thanks for checking it out. I had tried doing the 3do conversion in 123do as well, but tried the external converter as well in case there was some issue in doing it direct from 123do.

Will check the mips and see what I can figure out.

Thanks.  I'm continuing to work on the tracks... hope to have all 3 driveable-ish soon, but mostly working on re-learning all of the tools.

Thankfully, I think I already made the most complex 3dos I need for all of the tracks; most of what I want to work on before getting "serious" are some altitudes, mostly of the terrain just off-track.

And I am continuing to mess with the project that I started last week -- again, as a way to re-learn the tools without messing up a long-running project.  (Yes, I still have my backup dvds of the old projects. I'm just squeamish about it, I guess).  So lots of re-learning about texture mapping, learning trk23doz and its new file formats, which I hadn't used before.

With Vineland, I'm going back through several rounds of notes from beta testers, and trying to figure out how much of the work they suggested I've already done... wish I had kept some sort of notes on the work.

I'm hoping to have things read in a couple of weeks for some small testing to start, but I will pop in with questions in the meantime.

Sorry -- I wasn't very clear.

The PDF link doesn't work.

Is the track creating guide missing from the link in the first post? Just tried and got an error message.
