I just browsed around and wondered what i need to fiddle about creating my own 3d items.
i know about a whole new generation of engines, 2d as well as 3d. And I find it interesting to see if i can supply the community (no goals no goals!) with new community material.

I've also seen some vague showcases about non-world of diving meterial on the vertigo youtube channel.

So I take vertigo uses an engine and provides addition material ? or did verigo create their own engine ? I something something Unity ?

I hope the devs can tell me if there are progams like that for the community to consider. For the "game developer" software thats currently on the consumer market can be very Iffy.

Hey Rhapsodae,

Yes, Vertigo is using the Unity engine for WoD, which you probably knew.
In an early development post they stated using a Maya program to create their models. Forget which exact version of Maya, but a search will clear that up for you.
The Unity engine can be used without and with payment.

If you want to get into creating 3d models, theres many options. Consider giving Blender a try or one of the programs used by the Vertigo developers.

Is there a way to import 3d objects? And if yes-> which file format?
.obj files are common. And which requirements would be necessary.
(max/min file size...)
Cheers,

The programs mentioned in the posts above are all capable of importing .obj files.
If you're talking about importing into WoD, there's no feature for that.

What exactly do you want to do?

You could add more/new objects to missions. Create your own stuff.

It would be very cool indeed. Yet the objects used will require many restrictions.
Could make a topic in which we post created models and ask to which technical restrictions an object for WoD should apply.
Any chance you've already created something in 3d you could show?

I created simple things like this cooking plate:

For my help project in Burkina Faso (West Africa) www.fanga.de.vu I made some building plans like the one in this simulation:

Soz for the late reply Egyptsun.
Like the compound / building animation you've made for the help project, cool project by the way. Hope it'll help out :D

What is really cool is that my plan is getting reality right now:

yeah sorry to jump in here,
but I was a bit disappointed that this game is not more community driven with ability to add your own stuff to custom mission editor (or Lack of Map Editor) so people could make realworld dive spots from there countrys (World of Diving) etc.. is anything like this planned for the future? modding would be great for this game?

Soooo much possiblitys .... no1 wish

I'd say this game is very community driven.
The version isn't a finished product at this point.

There have been a discussion about the ability to add more scenery items.
Also it's been proposed to release an empty map in which people could make their own dive sites.

Would you be more interested in using your own 3d models, or is creating a map from scratch more what you'd like? Guessing both ^^

I agree with the community driven thing that sort of came out wrong?

"There have been a discussion about the ability to add more scenery items.

THIS +1000 on my wish list. (mapping Mainly I have no idea how to 3D model wish I could) 8-)

It didn't came out wrong at all. Also it's good to know you'd put so much value into such features. If you come up with more ideas regarding those feature, be sure to post them.
