    import additionnal object in editor

    Post by jimmy delbosq on Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:06 pm

    Hi all!!First of all, happy new year to all.

    I want to know if it is possible to import an object on my track which is already in Koflite or if i must re-import all track from 3dsmax and rework.

    Thanks!!

    Hi Jimmy,
    to import a single object I do as follows (I know it is a bit tricky, but it's easier to do than to write):

    Before starting, make a copy of your track .kto file, just to stay on the safe side...

    - export the single object in ASE format
    - open the object in Koflite, tune material etc. then save as .KTO

    - open a text editor (I suggest that you use a tab-capable one, like Notepad++). open the track .KTO file in one tab of Notepad++. Open the object .KTO file in another tab.
    - into the track file, at the first lines, you find
    >MATERIAL_LIST<
    COUNT=number.
    Increase the number by 1

    - at the end of the track file, you may have a geometry called SKYBOX. Increase the number of its material by 1 (or the material's number of whichever geometry you have as last).
    - switch to the oject .KTO file, find >GEOMETRY<, and where it says MATERIAL=0 replace the 0 with the number of "SKYBOX" material less 1 (eg: SKYBOX - or your last geometry in track file - has 575, you put 574).
    - again into the object .KTO file, in the first part you will find the material code of your object. copy it (the whole block, from >MATERIAL< to >ENDVARS<)
    - go to the track file, and find the word "GEOMETRIES". Increase the number of geometries by 1
    - some lines before "GEOMETRIES" you find the last material used in your track (the SKYBOX material)
    - BEFORE the last material used in the track file, paste the material of your object. Leave 1 blank line before, 1 blank line after
    - return back to your object file and copy the GEOMETRY block of your object
    - return to the track file and paste the geometry of your object right after the word GEOMETRIES, leaving 1 blank line before and 1 after.

    Done. Happy new year to you too!

    Do the same steps, instead of changing the skybox material number, you will change the material number of the last object of your track, whichever it is.
    I wrote about skybox because - IF skybox exists - netkar wants it to be the last object in your track file.
    You can do the very same process, whichever object you have as last in your track file.

    Just to be sure, you can check if other objects in your track share the same material number of the last one. Using Notepad ++, copy the string MATERIAL=number of your last object, type CTRL + F and in the search window hit "count". If there is more than 1, you have to search for it and change material number for all of them.

    ok! I found.
    i just add in my track nko the MATERIAL and GEOMETRY lines of my object nko and increase the materials counts
    It works.

    Thanks!!
