Newest EDM Model Tools


Recommended Posts

Can't see anything being done in the short term, long term who knows.. The unfortunate thing is even if people continue using older versions of max along with the older .edm tools in the likely event that something changes with the edm format again that's it, finished!

This isn't working for me, I assume it has to do with the new forum. Any chance of a new link?

Good news...   It would be great for the modding community and the growth of DCS.

Same problem here, I can't get 3DS MAX 2017 or older version.

 

Minimun version available is 3DS MAX 2018.

 

So I can't develop anything for DCS !! :(

Are you saying the latest plugin supports 2021?

It makes no sense for them to upgrade versions of Max they use every year, either. The licenses aren't cheap, and if the current version they use accomplishes what they need then there is no reason to rush to upgrade.

Indeed, but newer Max takes advantage of latest hardware tech. Sometimes 2014/16/17 gets so sluggish with 1,500,000 tri-count and more , it's un-usable. 2019+ can handle the instructions much better. And with larger textures.

 

As graphics cards get better, so does the art....and the Art departments are constantly innovating as hardware becomes better suited.

 

Personally, I dont mind an upgraded plugin every 2-3 years, but it's time for a new one for sure.....before our old files become corrupt. At least for 3rd parties.

That's why I haven't upgraded to a newer max and stayed on 2016.

 

Unfortunately people don't have the option anymore.

I was able to get a link to my old 2017 download from an autodesk email I had archived, and the link was still valid. Lucked out I guess.

The one bundled in your latest version of DCS should be newest enough for all your needs. Never saw the want or need to use one newer than your install. Same goes for the EDM plugins.

So.... Is there a solution to the 3DS Max/edm plugin situation?? If you actually have an official license, 2018 is the oldest 3DS Max version you can use legally... Which means that in the current situation, only hackers can make mods for DCS.

I pay for a license from Autodesk every month and all I can access is 3DS Max 2018 through 2021.

Thanks.

There's mix discussion on the inside regarding an updated plugin. It is being worked on....but not clear if it's for 2018 or 2020......maybe both.

Well Maybe the solution is making it for blender and hake a old version of max .. :).. I have 2021 and it is impossible to have the 17 so yes all 17 are hacked versions from my knowledge.. Sadly

Fly it like you stole it..

You really want to have 3rd parties get delayed for learning a new/another 3d software? lol

Like I said in the other thread.

 

I rolled back to Version 172213 due to the crashing while animating.

 

The only thing I can't do is edit previous fake lights and animate new ones.

 

Omni and spot lights work fine. With the new lighting set up I suspect it's all changed..

Seem to be facing an issue with the models in game - When in first person view looking at some models of mine at certain angles , they dissapear (yet their projected shadow remains) and re-appear if i move my head (in VR) or pan camera sligtly to another angle. This is only in first person view , outside cameras are unaffected . It is as if there are blind spots that certain angles make the models invisible .. Has anyone had a similar experience or could help figure out what this is ? Thanks

Are you using a LODs file or calling the edm file directly??
