Just a heads up, Mete has released the latest version of Milkshape3D and one of the more significant features of this version is it that now support vertex weighting.

For those that don't know why this is a big deal, Source allows you have more than one bone in a model affect a vertex's position. This means much smoothing bending of joints. Previous versions of Milkshape only supported one weight-per-vertex which made it difficult to make organic models.

For $20 it's a really useful little app and for most modelling tasks it's obviously cheaper and simpler to use than 3DS Max and XSI.

plug - I helped Mete with the SMD export code :P

wow he updated it :) Thanks for the heads up. I was beginning to think milkshape was dead. Seriously. It's not just cheaper, it's about a gazillion times cheaper than 3DS Max if you're just a beginning or strictly hobby modeler

Damn, it looks nice, and I was so glad to see it supported LWO's, until I realized it doesn't support 7.5 LWO's.

Sorry to derail right here, but can someone PM me or point me to an importer for Max that lets me import the tank models from here?

Pick your version and search on LWO.

Other option is to look at Okino Polytrans which will convert just about anything to anything.
