Open Mod's for ROF
Posted 08 July 2012 - 23:51
As for this discussion, I am not looking for a lecture about forum protocol. Is it really necessary? Conversations naturally stray a bit from the original topic.
You are here and I was wondering, so I decided to ask. If you don't care to answer straight away then say so. Thanks.

Never really learned it… and I'm missing a lot of vocabulary.
But I worked in countries where neither French or German were commonly used… had no other choice than to "learn on practice".
Your vocab is pretty good for someone with no formal training and as Luke said, your writing is very coherent and I would add that it is very articulate for someone in your situation.
Practice your tenses and the rest will fall into place for you I think, this site might help.
Try and keep your tenses consistent within a piece of writing and learn to pick the appropriate one for the job.

Planes aren't the only thing that people want from modding, this isn't FSX after all.
Mmmm, reading a lot on early war 2 seaters and there seems to be no way to go for by 777, guess this way for mods could be very intresting If these planes are AI even the secrit qualities 777 is demanding, these could be even a bit lower. My early war scouts needs some decent food, to hunt at.
But to start we could maybe better go for static objects, incase some funny modders include hacked jetdriven planes.
Yep I’m an 2009 Rof pre-order buyer and one of the few that did buy the Sikorsky game.

I hope it remains a constant for many many year.
You will not see jetplanes in rof with 777 , unless they allow and say yes to approval quality.
Regarding static objects
The biggest mistake is your own heart and wishes , you will want more than your cababilities will allow and infant baby steps is the very best way to go forward.
No point making a 3d model of the engineer and then animating the biped to walk over to the front of your plane and start the prop.
that example would be doomed to fail because of its complex management and work and time it would take.
Best to make a tree or a wooden box or Briefing tent / hut , something basic and easier to make so you can learn the basic rules , this way your next project can be slightly and i do say slightly more complicated 3d object.
wooden bridge , or warehouse with crates outside, coastal port Jetty ,so boats can Stop ! and unload , load new cargo, maybe even a crane !
not basic but not to complicated either , the above example you could learn alpha channel cutting and how to build your learning of whats allowed and what works best.
Ok, im waffling so catchya later

If you think you can download a object and get it into rof your dreaming wake up
1 its polygons will be to high i think the limit is 1200
2 the way its made , how the polgons are arranged within the object, will not compliment the dynamic lighting and so look poor quality.
3 smoothing groups hassles that would mean so much rework it would be faster to rebuild in the style rof objects are built than re-edit what you have.
Sorry if im blunt but just like and admire the quality we have present day
A perfect example of what the heart would love to build but infant baby steps are needed before hand
A wooden box ( easier smoothing group , texturing so you can learn to add the object to the ROF Sim )
A Tent ( again easier object but slightly more polygons so you see the amount of work goes into a object its not just 4 side polgons , it will have guide wires and inside polgons. )
A Brush / shrub / Tree ( This is totally different style than above 2 objects = billboard style were texturing is important learning )

Plus you need 3d max studios 8 to add objects using exporter tool to rof
