Hi, im relatively new to EF modding, but also relatively old. I can do sounds, text, graphics, etc, but am new to the modelling aspects.
Does anyone knwo how i can view/edit/export-to-3ds the .tan model files in EF2?
well to look at .tan files go to armada2files.com and download the Milkshape SOD importer/exporter (it also has a .tan importer). You will need Milkshape 3D wich you can also download at armada2files (any version will do), anyway just install milkshape and move all the files from the plugins you downloaded earlyer and put them in the directory that milkshape is installed and start up milkshape and go to File>Import>Elite Force II and you can look at them but i cant get it to save in .tan format. Also i cant model either so you cant expect any help from me youll have to consult an expert modeller for help.
oh and to make them .md3 format just go to File>Export>Quake III Arena MD3.
