Talk:Tutorial: Create your own models
From Empires Wiki
- I was going through the tut looking for little errors to fix and realized some of this isnt necessarily true. An example of this is that "To compile the model you'll need the VTF's ! " line in Setup. I've made, compiled, decompiled, and recompiled models and I have never needed to have the VTFs or VMTs made already. Can anyone confirm this? --Theowningone 14:46, 9 May 2009 (PDT)
- First of all thanks for correcting the tutorial, I'm not an native English speakers ;-). You're right, VTF's aren't needed to compile the model, but if you don't want to see the purple/black chessboard textures in game, you need them. --Siro 17:00, 10 May 2009 (GMT)
Empires is now better at compiling dmx files than smd files. Might be better to export those.
