Seasonal textures on gmax object??

I indeed wanted to point to my website :).When you have your ASM code, the first thing you have to do is go to the material list. That's at the begin of the code and add all seasonal variants to it (just like the example on my site).Then you would have to check every place in the source where a material is called. If you have entered the seasonal variants in between the origional textures, then please note that all material numbers have changed, so it might be better to put them at the end.Then around every place where a seasonal texture should be called, you should add the IFIN commands as shown in my example.There should be an easier way of doing this, as there are also commands like TEXTURE_WINTER in BGLC, but I haven't found out how they work yet.Arno

I mean all the number, 0000006f8h ect in the IFIN code?And then it's finish or?Thanks for your help so far,/Philip Nordlander

The 0, 1 and 2 after that check if a certain season is true and then use a certain texture (material number).If you have more then one texture that needs changing, you must also change the labels, as they must be unique in the source. So it you have two textures to code could look like this:

TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST.BMP"; 0TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST_WI.BMP"; 1TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST_SP.BMP"; 2TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST_FA.BMP"; 3TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST2.BMP"; 4TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST2_WI.BMP"; 5TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST2_SP.BMP"; 6TEXTURE_DEF TEXTURE_AIRCRAFT, <255,255,255,255>, 54.999468, "TEST2_FA.BMP"; 7TEXTURE_LIST_END;; can be other code between;IFIN1 tex_01, 06f8h, 0, 0 MATERIAL 0,1; <255,255,255,255> TEST_WI.BMP;;; JUMP tex_verder tex_01 label word IFIN1 tex_02, 06f8h, 1, 1 MATERIAL 0,2; <255,255,255,255> TEST_SP.BMP;;; JUMP tex_verder tex_02 label word IFIN1 tex_03, 06f8h, 2, 2 MATERIAL 0,0; <255,255,255,255> TEST.BMP;;; JUMP tex_verder tex_03 label word MATERIAL 0,3; <255,255,255,255> TEST_FA.BMP;;; tex_verder label word;; code for this object;IFIN1 tex2_01, 06f8h, 0, 0 MATERIAL 0,5; <255,255,255,255> TEST_WI.BMP;;; JUMP tex2_verder tex2_01 label word IFIN1 tex2_02, 06f8h, 1, 1 MATERIAL 0,6; <255,255,255,255> TEST_SP.BMP;;; JUMP tex2_verder tex2_02 label word IFIN1 tex2_03, 06f8h, 2, 2 MATERIAL 0,4; <255,255,255,255> TEST.BMP;;; JUMP tex2_verder tex2_03 label word MATERIAL 0,7; <255,255,255,255> TEST_FA.BMP;;; tex2_verder label word;; code for the next object and the rest of the code of your file;

I hope this makes it a bit clear :).Arno

Hi Arno and everyone,Yesterday then I try this out on my apron, and I got it to work nice!;) but it should be much easier is MS put an marking box in the MakeMDL program. I have many objects who I must change the code now, its some work but after it looks nice so thanks for your time to help out of this.check the picture there you can see the snow on apron and oneother (uncoded) texture which is summer texture. But anyway now I know how to do this thanks again./Philip Nordlander

Yes, I know it must be easier :), there are also some commands in the BGLC that show that another approach should also be possible, but because of the lack of documentation (I found the commands in the MASM include file) I can not get them to work.And your point about MakeMDL, don't forget that they made MakeMDL mainly for aircraft design. If you look at the code and the problems we have (and all missing features) you clearly see that they didn't think about scenery design for a second.Arno

yes you are right, but MS should made an option for scenery as well. But until then you are the man who found all answers;)!thanks again./Philip Nordlander
