How to make scenery ground objects?

Post by lorDuckFeet » Sun Dec 13, 2015 1:14 pm

Hello, I would like to know how create scenery objects.Like vehicles, etc.
As I see the scenery object is made by .SRF file and the .DAT file.
Anyone know a good manual or tutorial.
TY

Very confusing for me (or to me) :cry:

Well, first of all, ground objects can be animated and dnms. Refer to the CLA list here for more info on the animations.

I'd recommend blender for creating the model and exporting the dnm (no animations defined in blender) and then manually define them in the DNM file. that may be a little complicated, but Blender does not do ground objects as far as I can tell...I think it can import them, just not export them.

I recommend try latest PolygonCrest builds, that now support ground objects CLA animation.

I cannot run polygon crest on my old computer. Besides there is already a tutorial out there made by Soji himself.
