Egosoft supports 3DS Max 5 & 6. Others have used other programs and then imprted them into Max and then out as egosoft files (sometimes sending them to someone with a copy of Max to do it for them)
I don't know about where to get them. I think there's discussion about various modeling programs in the threads that are linked from that link I gave you.
Cheers.

Simple Problem

Post by keitherwild6 » Mon, 12. Sep 05, 03:40

Hi! I have been trying to get the doubleshadow editor for sometime now but everytime I dl the supposed extra files needed for it I end up with a corrupt file, I have a dial up and dling a couple times makes ya mad. LOL.

Well, what I really need is a step by step instruction.

My purpose is Simple:

1. Edit the weapon speed/damage/range of the game.
2. Edit the statistics of the Ships.

So what I need is:

1. The specific file names of the Doubleshadow editor I have the following:

a. x2e_runtime2_install.exe
b. vbRuntime_install.exe

2. The site to get them at besides the one listed.
3. How to install and make it work!

Thank you! If this answere elsewhere please point me at the right direction! thank you!

You'll get a better response to your questions about Doubleshadow's Editor if you post them in the thread devoted to his editor.
Someone will more than likely be able to help you in that thread.
(I'm assuming that you've read that thread first to see if your questions are already answered)
Cheers. :)

Couldn't find any more appropriate topic, sorry. I'd appreciate any hint on where does (if) exist full specification on the format of language files (such as 440001.xml) I'm trying translation of newborn X3 (format not changed since X2 or maybe even earlier times) into my native, but can't understand some points quite well. Thanks forward.
Excuse my bad English for having chosen me as his bearer.

The best description of what is in the text files and how you can access them using the script editor is in the msci programmer's handbook created by Reven.
You can find a link in the first post of this thread.
Cheers.

Hi,
I've read through the forums and site but i cannot seem to find any plugins for 3ds max. I have version 8 now, are ther any plugins for model import/exporting?

OK found the plugins and info for version 5, these work for version 8?

Thanks

I'm not sure what "recorses" is? Are you asking for resources? If so, are there any in particular you are looking for? Some of them are lost for good, but there may be some available still if you can give specifics.

No need to apologize, just looking for "specifics" on what you were looking for, and wanted to make sure we were on the same page.

As far as scripting goes, I would say the MCSI Programmer's Handbook is one of the most useful resources you could have.

Unfortunately some of the tutorials seem lost to us forever. If you can make 4shared work for you, you may find some useful resources in the "tools" folder there.

Just how exactly am i supposed to install a bunch of mods that all overwrite the same file ? (...\scripts\x2script.xsl)

these are rather large mods you'd think they would have cooperated so as to not overwrite eachother..

i must say im really disappointed at this whole mess, not just this but also the fact that half the mod links are dead or cant be found on mod archive sites. You'd think egosoft would store them somewhere.. people are making their crappy default game a wonderful experience afterall.
