It isnt a simple thing making ships and stations.
First you need to get the program which you can use:
Milkshape 3D (trial for ** days then you have to pay) Gmax (free but you need to register to get a cd key) 3D Studio Max (its the advanced version of Gmax, which you will have to pay for)
Then you need to know how to create meshes (models) and then add textures
Then you will need to know how to create odf's for the ships or stations, and also know how to make it buildable, by ship / station
Then how to add build buttons and wireframes.
As i said it wouldnt be simple...
its not easy but if you download west worlds big book of modding it gets easy
Thanks 4 ur help so far. ill check out the bbom and see if i can figure it out. if i have any further questions, i will ask them here
i need opinions. which editor is preferred(im not buying one), G-max or milkshape 3d? And where can i get them?
well milkshape 3d is only a trial then you must buy and Gmax is free but you can't export or import sod. format so its worthless
but i like both of them untill the trial runs out and gmax well like i said idont think you can export sod. format there might be a plugin and if there is id like to know about it but i dont think there is
and where do i get it?
