View Full Version : Lightwave to halflife engine

09 September 2004, 09:17 AM
Has anyone exported mods for use in the halflife engine. I was wondering if a .3ds would work? Or if there are any plugins that could help.

Get Milkshape 3D ( With that tool you can export and import almost any 3D file format there is (MS3D is actually one of the best not-well-known converter programs and cheap as labor) and it has direct export to HL SMD/MDL.

Thanks for the tip..ill check it out. Are these formats compatable with the hl2 engine?

Can't tell yet since HL2 isn't out. You should check Softimage|XSI EXP (special version just for HL2) if you want to model for HL2.
