Milkshape 1.8.5 BETA 1 Crashes when I export DTS


Recommended Posts

I am trying to export a mod for Blockland, and I tried to do it using DTS, and when I did, when it said it was exporting, it crashed. Even using the cheapo DTS exporter, and not the DTS plus still made it crash.

I have 1.8.5 Beta 1

The model was made in SketchUp 2014

And I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

So would you help me?

somewhere in the code there exists a 20k ish poly cap per mesh, which roughly translates to a 60k vertex limit, this is an old TGE limitation of a very old DTS format.

What this means in real terms is that the exporter crashes if you have meshes above a certain size, options are either make more meshes by splitting them down, or export using collada (not sure how that works, back when i tested this collada was experimental, in torque terms and many others).

dont know if the chris robertson dts+ exporter has the same limitations, https://github.com/nzchris/ms2dtsExporterPlus or maybe you can hack the exporter to fix it :)
