Even though I responded last to this thread, I thought it worth mentioning in a bump that I picked up RAGE from Gamestop today for $10, installed it, and the toolkit option then became available in Steam. And to confirm, YES,* the toolkit allows you to open the textures with no problem at all*. It’s very, very simple.
I haven’t figured out how the models work with the toolkit yet, but it doesn’t matter. There was an import script for Blender available on xentax so the models are a piece of cake too.
- The toolkit gives you all the textures unpacked in easy tga format. It’s really simple to get what you need.
- A blender import script for the md6 models can be found here: http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=7488&hilit=rage+md6&start=30.
- I had to flip the UVs horizontally to get them to work.
- You will need to manually separate mesh pieces to match them up with the proper textures. I just combined all double vertices, then separated all loose parts. This made it pretty easy.
