MS Flight Sim 2020 GLTF (GLB) 3d models importer (Request)

Post by Trophi Hunter » Sun Aug 23, 2020 4:02 am

Hey so the new sim just released and they don't have any Liveries for the planes. I can create some 1:1 perfect sets but I need a way to import the models into 3ds max or Noesis. Noesis does import them but the UVS are broken. The SDK has a lot of documentation on how it exports the models but the sim compiles the GLTF models and changes the data a bit. I really would just need the 3d vertex and face data + uvs intact if possible.
I added the A320 neo model as an attachment to poke around.

What does that mean exactly? Looks better than expected:

(Maybe a swap between half floats and shorts required, or vice versa, dunno, because the code is hidden in a dll.)

So the uvs of the submesh here are half floats - mesh format doesn't look too hard but I usually don't care when solutions already exist.

(Too sad that the code is burried in a dll without source.)

Plane models seem a bit more broken.

@CosmicDreams yeah that has to do with the bone rotation being wrong but upon export there is a optimize phase called RichPGeo and that might be the reason the uvs break, again i'm not sure but @shakotay2, plz if you could make a max script or a proper Noesis plugin i'll paypal you $10 ;)

UV's are broken even in noesis i think.
