3ds fs2 ships with tga textures ?
Is this possible? I've recently began toying with modding my Tiberiun Sun game and fouond a 3ds to vxl convertor for models.,..but it only looks for tga texture maps.

Ideas?

Well when you run a ship through Pof2cob or 3DE, the texture files are automatically converted to the correct format. I thought that 3DS used bmp, but both bmp and tga are bitmap formats (ie. they store each file pixel for pixel) so I guess it should be able to handle both.

Can I do this? Make a model in 3D Studio Max. Textured already. Save it. Use 3D Explorer to convert to COB. Then use COB2POF to convert it into FreeSpace format and the skins are still okay??

So... 3DS uses UV mapping?

Do you really need 3D explorer? I'm not sure but I think Truespace 4.2 can load 3ds files and still have the textures right.

You're going to need TS4.2 for that.

Nope. I'm using 3ds3 and max to model and map, then I use Truespace 1.0 (yep, the fisrt one lol) to convert the 3ds files to cob, then here we go   And it works perfectly. Btw 3ds uses lots of different pic format, it uses uv mapping (in a much better way than TS). And I really think making model with 3ds is the best way

,.............now back to the topic  

Can 3ds use a TGA as the texture map?

If so could some one send me a few 3ds FS2 ships:

Herc 2
Sekmet
Orion

I know that you can use a whole lot of diffrent textures in 3DS Max. Ranging from avi to tga. But if 3DS accepts TGA are a diffrent thing. I really don't know, but I think it would work.

Both MAX and 3DX support Targa files. And 3DX converts them automatically.
Probably away. Contact through email.

Hey 3DS and Max users, as I'm largely stupid on this topic, would someone care to tell me what exactly the two different versions are called, and what the differences are..? Thanks.
