...To convert Google SketchUp .skp files into Quake 3 engine .md3 files? And if it is, Is there a converter somewhere that does it for you?

And don't ask me to Google it, because I already did. The results were either websites in Polish (or something similar), or they had converters that didn't even have .skp to .md3 options.

Basically I'm asking this because I can't model worth shit, and Google SketchUp is a fairly easy program to do 3D work in. Thanks! :)

Converting Sketchup Models to 3DS - Dev Shed This gives a guide on how to make a .skp into a .3DS which is a filetype commonly used in the pricey but ok modelling program 3DS Max. You probably don't want to spend money, so here's some more free things for you! Gmax - Free Download Gmax is a free modelling program - it's like 3DS Max but with some of the features taken away. VIEW 3DS FILES IN GMAX Go to ^that^ page to see a tutorial for how to get a .3DS file into Gmax. Then, it's a simple case of exporting the .MD3, so you might want a guide on how to do that. Here's a tutorial based on a lightsaber, but it's a similar idea for weapon models and map objects (obviously, for map objects, you won't want the weapon tags, but it can be useful for a sense of scale) Lightsaber Crafting Tutorial It's a long way of doing it, but it's the only method that I could find. Hope it helps!

Thanks! I'm sure that should come in handy. EDIT #1: I'm encountering some problems with the Gmax installer on the site you provided.. I tell it to Setup, but then It starts an installer for FastCapPro? O_o I'm generally confused. I'll be googling other sites that has the installer though.

EDIT #2: Nevermind :p Had a file named setup.exe that would conflict with the Gmax setup..
