Hello survivors. After 10 years, I wanted to again engage in creative work with S 2.
Last time I was an ordinary schoolboy and the whole essence of my mods was to steal content from other mods and combine them. But now I want to create something of my own, tell me if there are any guides on how to make models for S2?

How to open a model in * .b3d? I downloaded Milk3d and Blender, but they do not want to open the * .b3d. Maybe you need additional plugins?


Sorry for my English, I used google translation

I don't know any software which can open b3d out of the box. You have to find and install plugins for that.

For that reason I also provide ms3d files for all Stranded II models. This way you can open them in Milkshape 3D without using a plugin:

(put the files into the models folder of Stranded II so the textures can be loaded as well)

@user DC:
I've tried to remake a medical box in a canister. But I can not bind the texture. In the game, it is also white and for some reason turned upside down.
What am I doing wrong?

And why do I get a transparent texture of the cork?

I'm really sorry but I'm afraid I can't help you with this. Last time I worked with Milkshape 3D was like 10 years ago and I don't even have it installed right now...

Only guessing here:

Did you set UVs for the canister properly? Are you maybe in a wrong rendering mode in Milkshape (there are modes which display the model without texture like in your video).

No idea about the cork. Maybe some material settings are wrong.

if you are interested in trying something new i recommend DeleD here:

http://delgine.com/index.php?filename=product_deled

It has an Importer and Exporter plugin available on the same page at the "Check out plugins" link on the right for .B3D Download them and add them to the plugins folder. (also for .3DS and others)

DeleD will not do animations correctly but is great for items & objects. Any textures/materials you use, you have to add them directly to the DeleD textures folder BEFORE LOADING A MODEL from stranded...to prevent a loading model error "no texture found".

Once you have the model made and materials assigned EXPORT AS .B3D from the dropdown menu. Same for loading a B3D, only IMPORT AS B3D from the dropdown menu.

Good Luck!

p.s. there is an important step in assigning the material...click the materials button and set the material to alphablend, solid color, or normal etc. like tree leaves need to be set to alpha so only leaves show and not the background...or glass/clear materials needs to be set to alphablend etc...you may have to experiment a little at first until you get the hang of it.

@user JasJack67: Thank you.
I have one more question. Can I use the work of other modders in their modifications? Is it possible to take someone else's work as a basis and change it?

@user Malzar: You always need permission to use work of others. Either via license / some written statement in a readme or something like that or by asking the original creator for permission.

Never just use stuff made by others without having permission. You are risking to violate law (copyright infringement).
