I'm trying to convert some ships from bc to Legacy but i've got a problem. I imported nif file using Milkshape , added hardopints and exported it as sod. When I changed .sod to m3d and added it to legacy the ship was - let's just say completly cloaked.

I did the same but instead exporting ship to .sod I've made it SFC3 .mod. using Milkshape. Then I opened it in CV and saved as .sod After changing .sod to .m3d and adding the ship to the game , the ship works , but I can't fire any aft weapons.

Hp's were directed aft in .m3ds but in .mod they were already directed foward.

HELP PLZ

PS: sorry for my english.

hardpoints - weapon hardpoints the model has textures

My problem is with milkshape.

I can convert file to .mod and then with cv to .sod and to m3d. But I can't convert nif or ms3d to working .sod file.

And whatever I do with the .mod file , it always resets the direction of weapon hardpoints. That's p... me off.

Before you convert your MOD to SOD, make sure to check your hardpoints. I'm sure CV has an option where you can edit the mesh.

If not, try using a 3D program like Max 3.1 or Max 5 to import your MODs, and adjust the hardpoints, and then export to SOD.

I know for a fact that the SOD exporters for Max 3.1 and 5 DO work. I had a model with textures working at one point, but since making adjustments to the mesh, I've had texture problems. It could be either your textures are set up wrong in Max.

Always try every possibility before asking for help though. That way, you can try some unconventional ideas.
