Hi racehard :)

You should add the "system unit setup" adjust in your tutorial :) 3dmax comes with this scale in inches ;)

I had some problems when I imported the track:

-All the transparent textures like trees, fences... aren't transparent in 3Dmax :(

-The kerbs are texture less, they are blank now. The rest of my customized textures are ok (except the transparency), only the kerbs are white.

-My track has google map photo mixed with the grass texture for improve realism but I only see the grass in 3Dmax :(


I used alpha channel in transparent textures and they were converted from PNG to DDS

I've been playing with tga files and I see what it is happenning... When I convert from DDS to TGA, the transparency is gone because "someone" has filled the holes with a BLACK or WHITE texture...

Sorry, I am completely noob with photo edition as well lol

Are you sure that you followed all steps exactly? I can't tell you what the error mesage means, but I am sure that you might have forgotten something.

Make sure you created the centerline: http://tools.piboso.com/index.php/Track_Editor#Workflow


Boris Malinov

In the track editor and map viewer all it's ok where it's problem?

Boris Malinov

Problem was in center line, 10x guys :))))) (party) tomorow i'll public my track, will see more tracks from me :)

Aritz

Thanks to other forum member PLATEAO, I can suggest you something very usefull for renaming the objects!

You have to select one group of objects (using ctrl + left click)
Tools, Rename objects and fill "base name", "prefix", "subfix" and "numbered" (starting from 1 always) using Pibosos guide

EXAMPLE:

Base name: ASPH
Prefix: TRK
Subfix: _object
numbered: 1

:)

Racehard

Great :D
Renaming can be done way faster now, thank you!
I will add that to the tutorial.

Guys, I just tried to convert a canadian kart track, following the tutorial posted here, and I have a crash/freeze trouble when loading the track in KRP. As I said, I followed the tutorial posted here, changed all gMat materials to standard, rename all materials, export track and trackED. However, I'm not sure I understand how to centerline the track, but even not sure where the problem is. Is it rename problem or trackED problem? If you guys can help. it's really appreciate. Here are some scrennshots:

- Rendering from 3ds max
