Re: 1.50 Broken materials

I hope that it was just an oversight that no error message is generated. Time will tell.

Re: 1.50 Broken materials

I can't tell why . No idea. But with 1.50 and the introduction of HashFS v2 archives for mods, handling of TOBJ/DDS changed. From now on, any mod containing a DDS also needs the TOBJ counterpart to be present in the mod. Even if the TOBJ file is not modded, you have to fetch it from the base, and pu...

Re: Textures not importing with model

Yes. Of course much has changed internally, but you can still use the old approach with a local zip file. You don't really need to add a manifest files and such to a mod, the resulting warnings are harmless. And you can ignore the mod manager by adding "-force_mods" to the game startup par...

I'm just curious, because I remember it differently: did it really turn from PMD locking to PMG locking? People always talked about PMD locking.

Re: How to make a UI completely from scratch?

Here is such a mod from the author of the tutorial you mentioned: https://forum.scssoft.com/viewtopic.php?p=835709 It consist exclusively of *.mat, *.tobj and *.dds files, plus two *.sii definition files. No 3D model. So Oleg's hint is correct, this is not a Zmodeler job. Unfortunately, the guy who ...

Re: DDS Problem

Possibly the DDS file is not placed in your mod at that very location where the model is expecting it. Check your game log, it throws an error for sure. And tells you what the expected location/name is.

Re: Animations

No. Even if animation code could be shared between different 3D models - which I don't know, but doubt: the external engine fan would probably only make sense as part of the truck model. But if your view is bound to the interior camera, you can't see any part of the truck model, only the interior it...

Re: Zmodler under Linux

Harald, everybody understands your reasoning. But porting Zmodeler, a Windows based program that never had portability in mind, to Linux, would cost Oleg hundreds of hours. If not more. Which means a workload worth many thousands of Euro. And the time spend on this is lost for ordinary Zmodeler deve...

Re: 18wos convert to ats

I highly doubt that Zmodeler 3 can import such an old model. But don't know for certain. It may be still possible to import it with the old Zmodeler 2 . If so, the result could be transferred to Zmodeler 3. I have done this with some ETS 1 mods of mine. In 2012 or 2013. I simply don't remember if I ...

Re: Crash when importing a pmd from the new 1.36 base

I've just read somewhere a nondescript comment that there was a change. In the following, I opened both a 1.35 and a new 1.36 PPD with a hex-editor, and spotted a version increase.

I have no more information to offer, sorry.

Not really related, but as Oleg mentioned the beta:

PPD files got a version increase, from 0x16 to 0x17. I have no clue what changed. Just in case this isn't already known.

Re: N00b question about ETS2 vehicle mods

Yes, you can. Provided the mod isn't "locked" by pseudo-password protection. So you should first take the mod in question and extract all its content to a folder, to check everything can be accessed without complaint. Some mods can't be extracted, while the game is able to load them, never...

Richard, is it possible that you had "merge" in mind, rather than "import"? Merge does also fetch all materials of the source model, not only those which are attributed to the merged part(s). Which is not really necessary and bloats the set of material, adding unused entries. Thi...

Not at the usual place. But I think Oleg will update the archive and spend you a new link soon.

But this is really curious. With all these MFC and ATL 32-bit security updates installed manually, I'm able to start Zmodeler 2.2.6 without a hitch on my VISTA 64-bit PC and my 32-bit Win 7 notebook.
