Where can i get free NIF - files to use them in the G.E.C.K.???
Nothing speacial, just furniture and optical stuff, like sculptures ect...

I only found hundreds of sites which offer millions of free 3DS - files. Is there a way to convert "3ds" to "nif"? or "max" to "nif"?

Does any game (like team fortress 2, garry's mod, starcraft 2, warcraft 3...) using NIF - files?

Is it allowed to put NIF's from "Oblivion" into "Fallout NV" and upload the plugins?

I have really no idea.

If you go to nifscopes main site there are plugins for blender/3ds max etc so you can import/export nifs

As for putting vanilla nifs from one game to another then uploading to nexus far as I remember no you can't, best to check the rules section before uploading things :)

Good news for you though. Google Sketchup has a ton of free open source models. I have a tutorial on converting sketchup files to nif format.

I have made about 30 different furniture pieces so far, making everything from scratch in google sketchup . I am not releasing the pack until after my mod is done, which may be a while.

You can convert anything to anything if you have the will. Gmod in particular is fairly easy to do but they seem to almost all be rips from other games, so nothing you can share here.

Gimp is a graphics editor, has nothing to do with the model. You will want it or something like it for the textures, but it doesn't belong in that chain.

Ok so i have downloaded all of the programms and i have created one simple chair in sketchup.

I exported it as a "dae" - file now i want to import it into "bender" (for what do i need bender? just to export it again) that i can export it to a "3ds"-file that i can import it to "nif-scope" and export it as a "nif" - file, did i get this right?

Actually "bender" will not let me import a "dea" - file because it says that i need the full version of "python", i downloaded this version:

http://www.python.or...releases/3.1.2/

What did i wrong?

For "nifscope" i downloaded this:
http://www.fallout3n...ile.php?id=2086

Can someone tell me the steps between those progs to finally get an object from a "dae" - file all the way to a "nif" - file? Just the easiest way, from creating a chair for example in "sketchup" and getting this chair then all the way into the GECK.

7-zip (or any unzipper) - http://www.7-zip.org/
Blender 2.49 - http://www.blender.org/
Python 2.6.6 - http://www.python.org/
PyFFI 2.1.5 - http://pyffi.sourceforge.net/
Blender nif plugin 2.5.5 - http://sourceforge.n..._scripts/2.5.x/

Geck - http://fallout.beths...loads/geck.html
and of course FNV - http://fallout.beths...v-overview.html


Python 3.1.2 won't work with the PyFFI and the nif plugin for Blender. You need the 2.6.6 version.


Blender is used mainly just to export again. On the tutorial make sure you watch the other video I uploaded. It goes over a step I have discovered that may be necessary to do in blender.


So Basically,

1. Create the object in SkUp
2. Texture your object with any texture.
3. Export the file as a KMZ file
4. Rename your filename.kmz to filename.zip
5. Unzip the filename.zip
6. In blender, Import the file as a Collada 1.4 (dae) file.
7. (optional) Group like objects
8. under the editing tap on each object unclick the double sided box under mesh.
9. Create a box and resize the box exactly where you want your object to have collision
10. With the box selected, under the object tab. Set Drawtype to bounds, and Draw extra to wire
11. With the box still selected, under the logic tab. Click bounds, then Change the collision type to that you want it to look like. If there is only one box using the box option is best.
12.Click Add Property. Change Float to String. Change Prop to HavokMaterial. Change the last box to HAV_MAT_WOOD, or HAV_MAT_STONE, or something of that nature.
13.Click a view window, and press A until everything is selected. Press CRTL + A. and select Scale and Rotation to ObData.
14. Now export the file with filename.nif

To make it easier on where to install everything from, use the TESNexus Blender download instead. It comes with all of the Blender things you need: Python, Blender, NifSkope, and NifScripts.

I browsed through help, i found under "scaling" or "size" nothing that works, when i press "s" and try to resize the mesh-box
nothing happens, i press LMBT or ENTER, but nothing happens.

When i try to export the file it says this:
