POF CS Conversion Code Update
Current COB Conversion Status: per checklist

Texture Translation: Check
PolyGon Points Translation: Check
PolyGon Faces Translation: to Texture reference translation, will write texture reference realiasing code tommorow, then will have to determine bounding min/max, radius, center [center predidence will be: First light in group, if no lights determine poly center as (X center, y center, z center)]
Extending Objects Translation: This is translating my new features like placing light points with certain names for engine glows, etc

I'm at school, just wrote the code for finding the texture (4 or 5 functions deap indirecting, first you find the actualy Mat1 structure, then you strip the path and extension from the name, then you search the intermediate [soon to be POF] texture list for that reference.. so i guess it's 3 functions deap)

now on the making a centerpoint

Normal Calcuation done, Radius Calculation done, now to figure center, then i have to go over to untextured polys.. but most of the things are common

I've been trying to con my 23 year old brother into helping Xenolith and Kazan and all the other programmers in the FS community, but he's not too enthusiastic. He says there's nothing he wants to learn about the game. Shame really.

the simple way i wrote the code allowed unlimited materals.. but over a certain number may break the engine

im running list compliations through the debugger

Texture conversion is A-1 SUPAR
Point Conversion appears to be A-1 SUPAR
Poly Conversion appears to be OK, more testing needed

there is no reason for me to write an extra 500-1000 lines of code just to support obsolete formats, there is no reason why i should have to write code to read/write out POFs earlier than version 2116 the difference between 2116 and 2117 is three lines of code on read, and then it writes out 2117 POFs

for one thing, you're throwing the door into the face of a lot of descent 1/2/3/fs1 MODers that also could benefit from this tool.

But, if the 'master' ego can't be bothered with this small feature...so be it...

for everyone else interrested...keep an eye out for a WYSIWYG POF editor for BOTH formats...

Come on, give Kazan some credit. He doesn't HAVE to to this tool, you know.
