Jump to: navigation, search

Create ships, structures, planets, dibri and special effects with 3D modeling software. Sins of a Solar Empire uses models converted to a text mesh file.

Know that ANY modeling program to create a Sins mesh, be it 3DSMax, Lightwave, Maya, Blender, however to make it ready for import into sins you must finish it in XSI. This is mainly because of the tangents, and the way XSI assigns materials to the mesh. The modeling program must be able to export into a format XSI can import, .OBJ is a good choice.
