OK, I have lots of experence making Quake2 maps so I should be able to pick this up quite esaly.

Basically, I would like to make my own federation WARSHIP and bases ect and I was hoping that the kind people here could post links to the software and any online help pages and maybe some quich tips (I've allready got 4 copies of the BC dir, VER53, VER60 for online play, VER60 32 player server and one i've started putting ships in)

I think I downloaded the SDK but I when I looked I couldn't find what on earth to do with it.

ANY help would be appreciated.

Thanks

So am I in the right place, is it the SDK for doing the modell, skinning will be easy coz apart from the deflector and the worp nacels, it'll be black, like space! Hint Hint :naughty:

So, i'll start scrambling around the SDK to find out how to use it even if it's not in the SDK it'd be good to know exactly why i downloaded it :confused:

Thanks for the offer Akira, i'm actually going to try to use existing weapons, IE phasers torps, I may well use disrupter cannons too. I told you, this ship will be about as big as DS9, it'll ba a saucer (mostly) and it'll be armed to the teath.

Another question, is there a limmit as to how many weapons your allowed? HE HEEEEEE

another words a one man battleship!

I also wouldn't mind creating the battle ship galactica, I know someone here has posted asking about it.

LOL, I have way too much time on my hands.

Right, this is what I've found out for anyone else thats interested in ship modding, The SDK is used for games specific stuff such as hardpoints, texturing, ships systems ect. YOU NEED THIS!

However if you want to make your own ship from scratch or edit a ship (IE edit the wire frame) you need 3D studio MAX and a module for it to export to NIF files.

Right, where do I get 3D studio max, NO COMMENT, DOWNLOAD TIME!

Sorry my apologies.

I'm sure if you used you brian you'll find it.

Right, I've got 3D studio max installed, now I need to find this plugin for it, I think I saw a link to the reqistration site on these forums.
