[Help] Merge not working?

Postby LukeAdamsRCMP » Sun Jan 28, 2018 7:25 am

So I was trying to merge a .z3d file to my 2016 Ford utility and I wanted to use a lightbar model from TheHurk, It seems to just crash my Zmodeler. I've tried multiple different .z3d lightbars and they don't seem to work.

send me the .z3d file you have opened and the .z3d you try to merge. and specify an object name you are trying to merge.

fix will be available in next version. meanwhile, change Settings->General->Merge Collisions->Objects: Autoresolve(rename).

Do I put it to that option? Because I had it set to that by default,

it crashed to me on setting "use from scene". changing to "autoresolve" give no crash and everything loaded fine. i've fixed both scenarios already, but can't upload a fixed version currently.

the given material was not converted properly. you need to convert materials with all settings being set properly, or at least convert them to shader material (select material, double-click on "Shader material" in the left side of materials browser). once material is converted, an exporter can read shader-specific setup of material and even if it is wrong, exporter will still be able to use default settings.

also, giving shader name "vehglass" in material name is incorrect. ZModeler3 has an "Adaptation" field (Adapt in short) where you have to specify in-game shader for each material you use.

material should be configured properly. in case of gta5, use a quick configuration template for shaders; located under big button with "gears" in top-right corner of materials browser (you still have to assign correct textures even after configuring material with this button/menu).

Awesome thank you! I've figured it out with your help and now I come across this problem, whenever I export the vehicle and put it in OpenIV the Lightbar duplicated as seen in the imgur link.

Also do you know any good tutorials on how to make a lightbar work?
