Men of War: Vietnam is a new game in the critically acclaimed series. Two new, story-driven campaigns let you taste the explosive mix of the jungle, Hueys and rock-n-roll in early 1968.

Post news Report RSS GEM 2 Engine - Exporting tank models (video tutorial)

Just thought of sharing a video tutorial made by SullenMan1 but reposted on Youtube by Man Gemer from the Vk community. It shows how to export tank models to Men of War/AS 1/AS 2/whatever MOW game; you can apply the same mechanism to other vehicles as long as you have MOW ready models. The vehicles should be 10k ploys, not more; if you will go other that limit the game might lag.

What do you need?

  • A 3ds Max version, from 2009 to 2014 will work.
  • Installed the plugins to export .mdl files, corresponding to the 3ds Max version you have installed on your computer. Get them from your AS 2 folder, if you don't have AS 2, get them from a friend who has it, or download them from here (they are in russian) Vk.com.
  • A ready MOW model of a tank (link below).
  • A ready 3d model (create one or download one from the web).
  • .def files of the vehicle you'll take the structure from; for the pz4, find it in your game folder (resource/entity/vehicles/etc..); for the BTRs or others, check the Red Rising mod's folder (just my assumption).

How do you guys get 3ds max? It is too much money for a recreational amature.

If you can't afford it there are other ways of getting it.
