Google Sketchup files can be read by 3ds max. Open the file with 3ds max and then export is as .obj. Then Import the .obj via SZS Modifier. (NOT TESTED AFTER IMPORTING TO 3ds MAX)

The thing is, I need to get 3DS Max, and it's not about importing, it's about making the tracks more like MrX8991 did for his own custom mushroom cup

I don't understand. The only way to make courses with 3ds max is via importing.

OK, nevermind you don't need 3DS Max. Just download the Google Sketch Up OBJ Exporter plugin.

Open up SZS Modifier, open up a random course, go to course model, then go to file -> import.

I'll need your help BigOto

You can download Skype at Skype.com and then talk to me there. Razz

I need all the help I can get, then we can have a 1 on 1 race to test it. :3

I don't do Skype, sorry. Someday, hopefully soon, I will post an FAQ video that explains custom courses in sketchup.

EDIT: A video tutorial on how to make custom courses with SketchUp has just been posted on YouTube.

BigOto or BigOto2, it doesn't really matter.

Sketchup tutorial:



Remember that unchecking Export Front Faces and only having Export Back Faces checked adds clockwise culling, which you may need to use.

Sketch up is really easy to use once you get the hang of it.
This was my first model, and it was way to big, but I've learned now.

Like I said, the road was to big, and it couldn't set kcl on it, beware....
