Hi all, I've recently decided to take a crack at modding Kotor, and upgrade from texture editing to meshes. I've done quite a bit of research on the topic but most forum posts are over a decade old! I was wondering what tools people are using nowadays. I know of the Kotor Tool (amazing btw) and after extraction the files come in .mdx and .mdl formats. From what I gather, 3d information is in the .mdx, I have no idea what the .mdl has... How do I convert to .obj or some other workable format? Milkshape does not recognise KOTOR models, only World of Warcraft... I'm familiar with Maya, so I can't import directly (as far as I know). How do I export back? Does it go in the override folder? Can I even mod PC Heads or am I just wasting time? Looking forward to some replies! -Weiss
Hello guys, I'm trying to take map models .mdl from KotOR 2, modify them a little bit, and put them back into the game. I managed to do it but I get visibility problems: the whole model appears invisible, except for the objects with the glowing material and texture, as can be seen in the image. I guarantee that the .mdl geometry is there although invisible. In the second image I've removed part of the geometry so that the rest of the map can be seen through. I guess that this problem could be given by errors with the visibility map or the light map, but I have no idea of how to solve this.
Hi guys, what's up? My problem is, I can't see the models under KotOR 1 (in the KotOR Tool), or actually I can see that folder but it appears empty (as you can see in the lower part of the attached image). Instead I don't get any problem with KotOR 2 and I can open them normally.
