I want to add some Half-life (1) models to FPSC to make some test, as I have no clue on 3D graphics. I imported one HL model into Milkshape and exported as a DirectX file via Export/DirectX (JT). Also copied original textures to the characters folder in FPSC.

Well, the characters appear fully textured on the editor, I can see the character perfectly and can add it with no problem.

When I test the game, the model appears untextured. It seems the TGA file is needed. My question is, does Milkshape create one TGA file with all the textures? If not, how can I do it.

Sorry, but I am absolutely a noob in this matter.

Load the texture into Photoshop
and convert it to a TGA file.
Then make sure that the FPE file
is pointing to the correct X file
and the new TGA file.

There are many BMP extracted from the Half-life original model. My question I how to create that one big texture file.

I have spent hours trying to incorporate a half-life model into FPSC with no success. If anyone can put a tutorial on adding HL or other games models into FPSC IMHO it would be great, as will allow us to have models for our tests. Once all is finished, we can replace those models with our own ones.

Hope anyone know how to import them into FSPC

Best Regards,

Then i guess that you have to UV it yourselfe.
You convert all those BMP textures into one tga
and then load the model into milkshape
and retexture it to fit with the new texture.
FPSC does not support multiple texture per model.
(not as far as i know anyway)

...or you could alter the UV's to fit on one texture plate, save as a seperate mapping channel and bake the textures to the new UV's.

The skybox X file has 6 textures. I'm going to see if it's possible.
In the skybox, the X file itself points to the textures.

you could also split the geometry up into seperate meshes for each texture. Then export them as a group in one file.
