bay door animation for construction ships

Post by Surma »

I want to create an animation for a construction ship like the stock ships with the bay doors opening and closing when the ship builds something. I can do the animation itself in MS3D but i have no clue whatsoever as to how to connect it to the build action. How would i do that? Is there something special i have to think about when doing the animation, like number of keyframes or some sort of referencing?

Creating animation in ms3d won't help. The exporter doesn't export it when the models converted to SOD

Well you could try getting hold of achilles or get hold of 3d max 3, 4 or 5.

I could find that myself, though i really dont think we should be talking about such things in a public forum...

@Franko. Consider this your one and only warning. Talking about warez on this publically viewable forum is grounds for being banned. I trust I will not have to carry this out.
