Links to Handy Modding Utilities.

Post  Marc15yo [Admin] on Thu May 08, 2008 11:58 am

Ok i'm working on a list of handy Modding tools. This post will be updated constantly.

Key:
programs highlighted in green means they are free
programs highlighted in red means you have to pay



Modeling Tools:


GMAX - Very simple Modeling Tool. I'ts Free. a Perfect replacement for those who don't want to buy 3dsmax
http://www.turbosquid.com/GMax

Renx scritps - required to edit CNC gens Models in Gmax. http://commandandconquer.filefront.com/file/RenX_and_W3D_Viewer;76328

W3D importer - Actually imports the models into gmax
http://www.renevo.com/files/folders/w3d/entry153.aspx

3dsmax - Waaay much better than gmax. this is what you need to do professional stuff. unlike gmax it can render

Texturing Utilities:


Photoshop - It's a must have. The best Texture editing Software (in my opinion) for games and more.
http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/index.html

GIMP - For those who don't want to pay there is always GIMP. it's an alternative image editing software. It is really good with 3d modeling textures so i've heard.

DDS Converter - This tool can convert many types of image files bmp, jpeg tga and dds. perfect for converting textures from CNC Generals. + Comes in handy in many other ways (this is the newest one)

dont forget to include the .csf editor and finalBIG Razz

to be honest, i used to mod a LOT. I did a GOOD portion of coding and modelling. [My specialty is aircraft... i probably still got it but idk... its been a while]. I still have RenX on my PC as well as FinalBIG, ect. I basically just made little mods for myself. I may have one laying around on my old PC but idk. I am soooooo psyched to play TAOW... like... you dont understand... i been watching this mod since forever!
