Hello guys, my question is how I can create a car like HL2 jeep using a 3d car model?
I nor model nor script,but i think you model the car,then do the schwoopy-loopy scripting.
Sorry but I can’t understand you.
You says “You need do scripting” ?
first you need to rig it and make some animations. In Source SDK examples you can find uncompiled HL2 buggy,maybe it will help you. and about scripting i dont know anything
ok thanks for the info Jano952
Depends on what you want to do!
If its straight up replacing the half life 2 buggy, then its fairly straightforward: you rig the model to the same skeleton the HL2 buggy uses, compile and blamo - you’ve changed the car.
If its creating a new, seperate car entirely then thats a grey area to me, but i’ve seen threads around here for it before.
ok thanks for the answer!
What programs I need for rig skeletons?
3D modeling program like Softimage,3DS Max, Blender, …
ok but how I can get the skeletons and join them with my model?
Somebody can make a mini-tutorial to help me? Thanks a lot
A google search would work … http://www.google.com.au/search?q=rig+your+model&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a and what program are you wanting to Rig it in also
Its quite hard to make a mini-tutorial to cover this as its a fairly extensive subject (rigging in general), but if i’ve got some spare time later I might be able to put one together
