that IS a nice patch of land... does this still fit with the tower thing? I'd kinda expect the concrete concept to be built into a wall near a valley......

Lol near a valley? (for those who missed, Wolf and I discussed this a bit in IM) Well it could still go here, I was thinking, and thereby be able to check both towards the waterfall and towards the land off to the East.

Heheh, well how about this already-existing large bungalow on the corner of Main and Rue de Jules Verne?

Btw, if you're reading this machf, you should totally tell us where you want your house to be. :yum: Even if it's up in the hills..

I guess it could go there... I just don't want it to be too tall and an eyesore... especially if we go for the low poly concrete option... the farcry instincts idea would possibly look kinda nice there

Does that mean that our homes must be empty? My guess is: yes.

Personally, although that would be true to the story, I think it would be a bit boring with nothing in the houses. This will be a kind of Trescom legacy, after all, so it would be cool to make our houses personal or something. :yum:

Matt is absolutely right with this, the whole point here is for the level to be quite fun.. Matt even played around a bit with the idea of his home being a teepee. :P Make your home your own, put whatever you want in it as long as Tres can handle it.
Hmm you know.. I ought to release that palette selection I made with the models batch, so people can start using those instead of making all variety of new palettes.

machf, no word yet on your home? I'm going to guess now that you're thinking "I'm not going to answer that, you really think I have time to make a house in your level?" Anyway I hope you'll do something for it. :yum: If not then I'll just reserve a small bungalow for you, using the materials I originally collected for your JPDS-EA office.

Nick, I'm liking what I see so far, keep it up - hopefully it will make it into the level from that app. 8)
Oh and, you never answered my question:

I was hoping somebody would ask the question. 8) It's simple actually, export in Google earth (.kmz, which is a disguised zip archive), rename the file extension to zip, unzip the archive, open the Collada model file (.dae) in the model folder (I used MeshLab to open it, you can also use Blender) and from here it's the same process as all other models.

It would be fun if somebody would create a plugin for SketchUp to export to tpm directly, like the OBJ export plugin, but I don't mind going trough all these steps. Before anybody asks, I don't use OBJ export plugin because it doesn't export the texture data, and one of the reasons why I use SketchUp is because of the very simple texturing system.

No, I don't remember changing the anything about the East Gate. Why do you ask? The East Gate is buried under a hill now anyway...

Holy crap... so you use 3DS for import? Or do we have a TPM export script for 'MeshLab'...

It was in fact an edit to one of my posts on the first page.. I noticed you were on the forum within 5 mins afterwards and hoped you didn't come too soon to catch it..

Hmmmm, how strange. Well for one, it's probably going to be moved directly to the south-east road of the town, so it does matter to me how it works. :yum: But I swear it used to work differently.. oh I'll get around to it anyway.

Look for my furniture package shortly, btw.. just have a few subobjects to make up.
