Socoder -> Off Topic -> 3D Modelings Review

They all are free modelings to download.

Wings 3D
--------

You can create rectangle in under 10 seconds.
It was ok but take time to learn things or two

DeleD 3D
--------

At first, when I play around with the modelings. I didnt like it but then I start to get used it. It became more interesting to create what you have always want.
I do like Snap grid( in 3D World studio...they dont have snap grid which left me Feeling piss off!). The texture on the models is so easy to do.
You can even export B3D where You can download plugin B3D.Dll for free on their website which mean you can create a models then export to B3D models then open your blitz and loadmesh, bob your uncles.
Light mapping is ok and speedwise is not too bad
There is DeleD 3D PRO which cost about £51 I think.

Scream 3D
---------

I have go at that and I got somethings out of it but it all Bloody German language!

3D World Studio
---------------

It is quick to make own Models and also you can light where you want to create. In fact, You create many light you like to put where you want to. There is also texture where you want texture the models no problem.
The downside is the Snap grid....let for example...
One Model is RECTANGLE and other is Triagle model.
I want Triagle model on top of the rectangle but right at the edge of it...then there was little gap in between. I want both of them to join together and I was looking for snap grid where both models can join together but no...3D World Studio dont have that

So far....

I am impress with DeleD 3D.

IF you got any review on 3D modelings software then I would be interesting to read the good points and bad points.

I really like Maplet

It's quite easy to use, free, and if you grab some textures from Noctua Graphics you can make some neat stuff

Very good Hoboben....

Yo! Wazzup?
I don't really like Maplet, never got the hang of it...

Blender 3D. https://www.blender.org/

The interface is extremely hard to get used to, but once you do, you can find out more and more and you can do a lot of things with it. It's pretty much lightwave or 3ds max or maya or stuff like that, but with a harder interface and more to get used to.

Yo! Wazzup?
Anim8or kinda just went along with me like Maplet did...

I tried Blender 3D and hated it, didn't understand anything.

Hotshot, I suggest you have a second go at Blender and this time watch all the video tuts on the Blender website, starting with the intros. The tuts really help. Then you should watch some of super3boy's tuts on youtube to learn to do some cooler things, like use particles.

Thank for advice but I do agree with you about Blender 3D as it is hard to do things but I give a second go and look at video tutorial. I let you know how I get on.

Maplet is alright but limited!
Anim8or is ok but didnt win over me.

Yo! Wazzup?
I've made a sword, a really bad catapult, and a student's desk for a classroom in Blender, and I changed the sword a bit to make it wavy and have animated energy sources around it.

Oh and by the way I forgot to tell you,
On BB.com there is a B3D exporter(python script).
Blender can do a lot of different things if you use python scripts
It's at https://blitzbasic.com/Community/posts.php?topic=70429

I use 3D canvas, but it doesn't fit in this category since it isn't free... only a small demo thats worthless is.

Jay, why'd you delete my post?

You're the one complaining about a lack of posts on this forum! :[

|edit| I am not having you <.> hijack a completely unrelated topic, for the purpose of <.> getting people to create maps for a game that is 100% going to be shut down in the near future, by the exact same company that already shut the game down for the exact same reasons they will shut it down this time. You know my feeling on your game. I've told you before about why I think you shouldn't do it, and have already suggested multiple methods of "Doing it slightly differently" so that you won't get into major copyright issues. You are absolutely adamant in completely ignoring anything that I've said, and when Nintendo come to shut you down it will be your own fault. |edit|
