The How-To Guide To 3D Models In Doom

Postby R4L » Fri Feb 23, 2018 4:36 pm

Hey all.

I wrote on the Discord server that I was going to make a tutorial dealing with 3D models, and I've finished the first part. Part one covers importing/exporting models correctly out of Blender and into SLADE, and using the SurfaceSkin property. I might make a video detailing this as well. I understand that this could be quite a bit to read and therefore some what difficult to follow, but I feel I have explained everything well enough. If you feel that I haven't, I would appreciate any kind of feedback!

Nicely done! I can't speak to the Blender portion, but this captures the rest of the process well.

The one thing that may be outdated - From what I have seen, the TEXTURES lump entry for the sprite is not necessary any more... I'm pretty sure that's a relatively recent change, though.

Oh? I had no idea about the TEXTURES lump being outdated... if you don't mind me asking, what should I be using now?

TEXTURES itself isn't outdated... Just the part about adding an entry for the sprites that are used to assign model frames to an actor - So in your tutorial, you can just skip the part about adding IBMEA0 to TEXTURES, because everything will work fine without adding it.

Do you have something with 3D Studio Max, or it should be the same? I have never touched blender before... as i am afraid a little because i learned myself how to use 3DSMax and it took me about a year to model properly.

At the Blender logon screen one can set so that Blender behaves just like 3DSMax.

Spoiler:

But, since I never really used Blender myself, I'm not sure if creating a model is like 3DSMax.
