So, interested in something more than Milkshape, I went and got the 3DS Max '08 demo. It works fine, but getting a ship ingame requires modeling in Max, exporting to .3DS, importing in Milkshape, and exporting as .SOD. This is rather cumbersome :uhm:

I know there's an exporter for Max 3 and 4, but it doesn't work with later versions. Does anyone know the composition of the file (it's a .dle file)? How difficult would it be to make a new one?

the exporter works with max 5 as well, but as for your question... you would have to pull apart the .dle to look inside.

I tried opening it in Notepad, and got gibberish. Would I require a hex editor or something similar to open it?
