I haven't bothered to experiment with the textures yet.. but the model extraction via ogre and 3d ripper works like a charm!
Not really - these extracted files don't actually make the slightest difference. Producing 3d models is really not a problem. There's plenty of people in the community who could easily re-create the Arena ships if they wanted to. But creating a PC version of Arena involves - well, it involves creating a PC version of Arena. Having the models just doesn't get you any closer to having a fully-functional game.mmh, with those extracted files is it theoretically possible to "fix" a PC version of arena? I mean a sort of light version with no multiplayer support ( I suppose this would be difficult), only single player mode.
Correct. Someone could now take these models, and use them (though definitely they'd require some modification - technology has moved on since 1997 ) in SO or in another engine.I understand, so the gain of these modelpack is in fact creating ship models for other games like SO etc.
Mh I don't seam to get it working properly. The models are flat and the UV-map seams to be gone. To bad.
they didn't do much with the bottom of the battleships or port broughton model. they weren't visible so it probably wasn't necessary. it'd be pretty easy to 'finish' the detailing though.. that was just a midnight experiment in extraction.
oh.. there is a wrecked centurion among the models in that package.
