Is it possible to make cars in Blender and use in NFS5?

June 26, 2014, 12:42 p.m.
Hi all, this is my first post so I hope it is in the right place.
I have used Blender 3D for 2 and a half years now and my skills are always growing. I have begun making cars, I made a BMW 850i, a Volvo 242 GL and a made-up military vehicle for some different game projects, but I have always had a passion for computers and I would now like to make a car in Blender for use in Need for Speed 5, the greatest game of my childhood. :) I'm fairly good at making cars so that's not much of a problem but what software can I use to get the model to work with NFS5? I can import and export into many file formats including .3ds and .obj so hopefully that will work…

use zmodeler / 3ds max

use zmodeler / 3ds maxs.s.t;669749

Thanks, I'll check those out.

no you just have to have a little practice

it finally comes down to which formay NFS 5 is supporting for models. So model the car in whichever program, if you can convert it to nfs format (since you can from 3dsmax, i think you can convert from blender to 3ds and then to nfs formats using utilities available here)

It's always possible to take advantage of the Blender API directly to write a NFSV or gimmex compatible plugin directly. If you don't mind learning the API from top to bottom

But using preexisting tools in a tool chain is a nice "substitute" if one doesn't want to get into the details.

Like you said, ultimately the limits is whatever bit widths in the format/container specifications the (Specifically the non-Playstation NFSV) EAGL engine uses, and the hardware it was designed for..

Hope to see some good 3d models for this game!

If anyone has any information on tutorials, tools, and such for this game, please link them! I would really like to start making mods for this game as well at some point.
