update

a md3 commandline tool that makes gzdoom data files from information taken from quake 3 player models seems possible now

I can read an md3 file by using md2modeldef as a template and then altering data structures to match md3 models

the plan...

md3modeldef.exe (dir-name) (actor-name) (template)

dir-name: directory tha holds all needed source files
actor-name: the name the actor should have in GZDoom
template: the doom 2 monster that will serve as a template for the new monster or doomplayer

read...

animation.cfg
upper.md3
lower.md3
head.md3
weapon.md3
default_* skin files

write...

modeldef file (modelname_modeldef.txt)
decorate file (modelname_decorate.txt)

copy...

all needed files to a dir that is then ready for making a pk3 file

Code: Select allExpand view
Quake 3 model identifier found...

new update

unless the GZDoom engine can have seperate offsets for a model with multiple models then it puts a limit on how automated importing of quake 3 player models to gzdoom can be

the head, upper and lower parts all need to align, this is normally done by the tags that I can read, but... without the option of individual offsetting each, then transformation is required using a 3D model editor

example:

I found out how to use surfaceskin in modeldef

so the offset problem can be solved by this

1) merge head+upper+lower
2)use tag data to guessimate offset and scale
3)write data based on merged model
