3D Modeling Tutorials for Pike & Shot and Battle Academy

Post by JamesManhattan » Mon Apr 10, 2017 1:31 am

I made some tutorial videos about 3D modeling for the Battle Academy engine. I will post them here, they should be valid for Battle Academy, Pike & Shot, and Hell, and hopefully Sanctus Reach; as they all use the same engine.
I had a heck of a time figuring some of this out, I am starting as a novice. They use 3ds Max (which is not free).

1. Using the pack and script to get an example (animated) infantry model into the game.
I am a new poster so it is not letting me post a url link (for now google: "slitherine youtube 3d model tutorial")


2. Opening up Pike & Shot and putting the model in-game.
I am a new poster so it is not letting me post a url link (if you get to the above video, the second video should be easy to find under my username


3. S4F's are automatically made, they have to be deleted when updating a model, how Emitters work, editing the texture pics.


4. Importing a 3D model from another source, such as from the Total War forums
Video 1 of 2 for Total War. Had to stop abruptly, will record more.


5. Continue Total War example
..in progress

I saw this post at work, and looked and it seems the 2nd and 3rd were blocked, but when I got home, it seems all the videos are working. I wonder if it's caused by some way I linked the videos?
Here's the three videos as plain links

The 2nd and 3rd videos still do not work. How very strange. Maybe they have to be reuploaded?

Sorry about that. I am learning youtube as well. They got uploaded as "Private" and I changed them to Public now. That's why I could see them but no one else can.

I also added a 4th video, but my son demanded my attention towards the end, so I will continue later.
