The wiki doesnt have much info on creating stuff for savage 1.
The idea is to add a section to wiki that is devoted to making your own content for savage 1.

What are the possibilities with Savage 1? The engine is not freeware, is it?
What is it compatible with? What software can be used? Freeware?
compability with the different versions? XR, SFE, 2.00e,...?
The info is all out there, on the mighty internet, but it could use some gathering. An overview.

This is a rough collection of some information:
How savage works
modding tutorial?

3d modeling
  • 3ds studio max. Tutorial here. Which versions of 3ds studio max? which formats? plugins needed? plugins that are helpful? The tutorial mentions a conversion plugin.
  • Blender?
  • other?
  • when a tutorial says it's intended for making objects for your maps, does the same information apply to making ingame models? I'd say at least a large part of it does, but i am no expert, so if someone with knowlegde could confirm this or contradict this, it would be greatly appreciated. The map making guides contain model making info.
  • Wiki should problably link to here so people can ask questions. But unlike the mapping section of the forum, the modding section is a bit empty.
Creating a map


modding in K2 (savage 2)

+ a link to the entire modding savage 2 section of the forum

It's maybe best to, instead of making a seperate one for savage 1 and for savage 2, to make one modding section. That way you can more easily point out the differences between the two and the things that are the same.
But i dont know where to put that on the wiki. Maybe at the bottom, under the Savage 1 and Savage 2 sections?

something like this:

wow, that's very very helpful, thanks. Keep working on it and maybe one day you'll be as helpful as the pointy haired boss in dilbert.  Tongue

I know it would wreck it a bit, but we cant add a third column either. And adding it at the top orso is not good either.
If we split it up in savage 1 and savage 2, the information gets divived and spreaded.

Depends maybe on how big the differences are. Anyone who knows that? Someone with modding experience?
