Ripped Bike Models
« on: May 17, 2018, 11:43:27 PM »
So I have ripped some models from other bike games. They come with the chassis, wheels and tyres and all that crap.

All I want to know it what do to with them next, I can export them from 3DMax and then use them with fbx2edf to get edf files. I have no idea what comes after that.
I know eventually I need to use BikEd and stuff but I can't get that far

I want to try and mod some of my favourite bikes so any help is appreciated.


HELP

I wish I could help you, then I would be able to make my own 2006 zx10r as well, but unfortunately I can't. Perhaps there is useful information to be found here:  http://forum.piboso.com/index.php

Well I've been trying to find good software, I tried NinjaRipper. All the tutorials show the Textures and Meshes having the same values but they don't. When you import to 3dmax they dont even work. I really want to mod but there's literally no material on ripping models and no one has mentioned it.

The reason it is not discussed much is that we don't encourage ripping models (bikes or tracks) from other games. Not only could it mean copyright problems in the future, it is also not very nice to steal someones work. User created tracks, from AC for example, are ok to convert as long as you have permission from the track-creator. The same applies to user created bikes, although there are not that many of them floating around.

Okay thanks. If I were to make a model the same question applies, since I still don't know what to do with the model I have

They cant copyright him if they dont have the files :) maybe he wont release it? Doesn't effect anybody else but the creator, so i dont see why you cant teach people how to rip models. its not illegal to teach people.
Milestone definitely don't care about people taking models from their game. HIGHLY doubt theyll go through all the trouble with copyrights over a FREE mod in a game that 99.9% of the population haven't even heard of. Milestone themselves probably dont even know this game exists. and definitely dont go through all the trouble to download each and every bike out there to check for models ripped from their game. its milestone, theyre sloppy with everything.

Plus if you guys don't like having ripped models I won't release them and I'll just use them with my friends
