vMask Blender 3.2

Post by JDMFarms »

I'm following the Mod'g Tutorials (5.0, i think) and i'm not getting the materials in the UV Editor. the list is empty. Im using Blender 3.2 as that is what I got up to using at work before coming back into the FS world. Is the vMask not yet compatible with Blender 3.2 or is Giants Exporter not fully compatible with 3.2? I read a lot about Giants Editor last month and deduced they are not supporting it right now or any longer which led me to a version on github which is not in support of the Tutorials.

note: i notice when i select the vMask in the materials tab for specular it autoswaps it to the normal texture.

any insight/guidance would be greatly appreciated.

thx,
JDM

Hi JDM,

The FS22 Modding Tutorials (5) were done using Blender 2.93.0.
I've used the Exporter in higher versions of Blender with some success. The one problem I have is the materials do not always export properly.
You can see some of my work in the WIP section.

The GIANTS I3D Exporter for Blender might not be fully compatible with Blender 3.x, but there is also another version of the Blender Exporter developed by somebody from the Community which seems to also support Blender 3.x: https://github.com/StjerneIdioten/I3D-Blender-Addon

There are also some additional tools available that should work with both the GIANTS Exporter and also the alternative version: https://github.com/NMC-TBone/i3d_exporter_additionals

Disclaimer: I've not used any of these myself, just sharing some information found elsewhere on the forum.

I've always just made sure I assign the textures before exporting and it seems to work , filepaths to textures set correctly in i3d
