TrueSpace to Unreal T3D file export




This plug in will save a truespace object or scene as an Unreal brush or map.  
When exporting a map there is also the option to export all the elements of the scene as seperate t3d brush files

By painting an object with a bumpmap texture file named “STATICMESH” the object will export as a seperate ASE file which can be imported to Unreal2 and UT2k3 as a static mesh.

StaticMesh objects with animation(rotation or translation) will export to the map as Movers. StaticMesh objects with a “Name,x” where x is anything will be exported as an instance of “Name”.

Spot lights, geometry and texture names are exported.    
This plug in should work with trueSpace versions 5.1 and up.

Above: Truespace scene with 4 movers, a tree staticmesh and several tree instances. The tree is named “tree” and the cubes are named “tree,1” “tree,2” “tree,3” and so on. One tree ase file will be created

Right: Imported level in UT2k3. The boxes have been replaced by tree instances. The textures for normal brushes need to be fixed in the game. The staticmesh textures are good.

Below: Movers in action.







Model with scene units of meters and object units of inches.  The object's one inch will translate to one unreal unit.
