make .EDM plugin for Blender?

 

Can sb. write the plugin for Blender please? As 3DS Max 2016 is suuuper expensive here in germany (even per month), and Blender is a very user friendly freeware, has ED already considered making the .EDM plugin compatible to Blender? That'd be a huge step forwards in allowing the community to create mods, eventually create a 3rd party team and eventually developing their own DCS module smile.gif

1) Why don't you take a look at the already existing thread which had an .EDM plugin for blender?

 

2) you got your answer about ED and making a plugin for blender

 

YES lol dude, the answer is there seems to be an official EDM plugin (for ED only?) and a community EDM plugin... you did read what BIGNEWY wrote?

I can get this to work to some extent. I am hoping someone is interested inhelping me.

 

I've been messing with the Blender settings and it is actually quite straight forwards to get a object in to DCS. What am stuck at is how to set the animation arguments. I set up an anim for the wheel rotation, using what I reverse engineered (not using anyone else's mesh, just poking my nose in to see how it works ;)).

 

I know I missing something, because I cannot see how to set the argument. I see it is argument 8 for rotation, as I used some guy called uboat's arg extractor tool on my edm file and it shows no arguments set. Thought it was just something simple as setting the anim name to how I have it in the image.

 

Proof it works... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H02ATIJzTGo

 

anyway here is how I have Blender set up for this anim...

 

 

 

BTW I am doing this as I thought it would be quite cool to drive round the new awesome 2.5 goodness, maybe being chased by a few armed friends.

Hello!

 

 

Can you confirm that the plugin works on blender 2.78 alone?

I have the same issue... didn't you read this whole thread?? ED does NOT SUPPORT the Blender plugin!! Currently it is IMPOSSIBLE to import the Blender model into DCS, even if you manage to export it... (You somehow need to get your hands on 3DS Max, which ED officially supports...)

Thanks @DanielNL for clearing this up , I read a few pages but not the whole thread, i thought it was allready working.. yea 3D max.. even old versions like 2012 are damn exspensive AFAIK.. damn it.

 

 

I hooked up with someone that got 3D max, but it's best to do it all yourself so you can work way faster..

Yes, I'd hope this would have been obvious, that this is only experimental and for modding DCS, not doing anything else with ED's intellectual property against their permission.

 

I've not done anything with this in over a year, because I got myself a job which had me away from home all week. Now I've moved closer to the job I'm planning to get back into DCS soon so hopefully I can find some time to poke this/see if any of the problems can be resolved. No promises though.

Hi SkateZilla, but can I use Blender to build a 100% original mod (not using any of the ED property) and works in DCS?

Hey NickD! Hope you are doing fine.

 

Do not know how your plans are, and if you will find the time or will to continue the development of this Addon for Blender.

 

Do you consider to accept any donations?

 

I mean... I am far from being rich, but I would not mind to give some money for a cause like this :].

 

I was able to import the Mi-8 model (some how, inside Blender long time a go) and thanks to this I am almost finishing a pretty cool (I guess...) skin for it. So thanks for all so far !!!

 

Although no matter how many times I have tried, I never make it to export anything to .edm format. I have seen other people success but still did not work for me following some few of their advises or your documentation.

 

As we know THE_ITALIAN_ACE looks like he has gone further in the development of your code and seems like he has achieved some results, but does not look like he wants to share all his hard effort with the rest of us.

 

So... that's it! Considering to accept donations to give you a little boost to keep developing this Addon for Blender?

 

Thank you!

 

Best
