Okay guys sorry if this isnt the place but i really couldnt find anything anywhere on the web.
This is the deal.
-i want to modify stalker call of pripyat game, more importantly, the weapons models and animations.
This is what i know:
There are several ways to import/export weapon models. Ok. The game use .ogf format for models. This format cant be work by itself with 3d design programs, so the software you want to use to work with these models needs a pluggin. Now the pluggins are available.
As stalker is a ukraine-made game 90% of the comunity is russian-ukraine speaking, and it isnt my mother language. So dont come to me telling me to google that shit because i already did. For 2 years.
I have autodesk 3ds max 2010 and the way to work with the .ogf files is as follow:
1-using a program to convert ogf files to smd
2-installing a plugin for 3ds max to import smd into a proper 3ds max format.
In theory it should work but it doesnt, and wherever i read the forums says 3ds plugins are the most unstable of them all. Great.
so now the question is, are any of you working with models/animations in stalker mods, if so could you be so gentle to lend me a helpfull hand to shed light into this matter.

Hey guys, this is just a quick poll to get an idea of the user base here.
1. What's your primary interest? (eg poly modeling, animation, arch-vis, game design etc)
2. Why are you interested in 3DCG? (plan to enter the industry?)
3. Your main software package(s), and other software that you don't use as much but still use? (Incl game engines and 2D software)
4. I've noticed a lot of female modeling, across the internet, but specifically here (why not, females are sexy, modeling is primarly male dominated) for those of you who model girls how much of the reason is to do with it being sexual? How many of you model female characters (human or not human) for primarily sexual reasons? If this question doesn't apply to you just n/a it or skip it.
5. How do you rate yourself in terms of skill, using professionals as your benchmark? If you're not already in the industry, do you think you could work professionally in your field of interest or do you think you need to improve further before this happens (if this is your goal, not saying it's everyone's goal)
6. How proactive are you with self improvement? When you see something better than what you can currently do, do you feel negative or positive? (Like inspired because of the quality compared to your work, or demotivated)
