Hey, peeps. Looking for some help with XML & HSL for my VMP project. I probably can set aside $10-$20 an hour for a coder.

I have pitched to a website with a very nice community who I will crowdfund with to mutually help both of us out on expenses.

Hey guys,

If anyone is interested, I was recently asked to do an interview for a really cool website called Exilian. The site helps facilitate all kinds of creative projects. Here’s a link if anyone wants to check it out:

https://exilian.co.uk/articles.php

I hope my answers are entertaining and (somewhat) intelligent…lol. Please feel free to share!

That said, this week’s new free tracks are:

On my History page:

ANCIENT TIMES – (Looping) – Perhaps for a history-themed game?
https://soundimage.org/ancient/

On my Sci-Fi 8 page:

ESCAPE FROM CYBERPUNK CITY – This piece might sound cool in a dystopic urban-based project.
https://soundimage.org/sci-fi-8/

And on my AMB - Urban Ambience page, some really nice large city street ambience:

STREET CORNER_5-30 – Trucks, taxis, horns, people talking, distant brakes squeaking, cyclist passes, etc.

STREET CORNER_5-29 – Scooter idles at corner, traffic passes, brakes squeak, baby heard, air brakes from truck, people talking, trucks pass, distant brakes squeak, etc.

https://soundimage.org/amb-urban-ambience/

Enjoy and keep being creative!

Greetings fellow creatives,

If anyone is interested, I was recently asked to do an interview for a website called Exilian. Hopefully my answers were entertaining and (somewhat) intelligent…lol. Here’s a link if anyone wants to check it out:

That said, this week’s cool new textures are on the following pages:

TXR – BRICK - Seamless
Some really interesting brick textures.
https://soundimage.org/txr-brick-seamless/

TXR – ROCK/STONE – Seamless
Some new stone textures that could be used for old roads, paths, castles, etc. Some have grass between the stones, too.
https://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-seamless/

More music is on its way as well as some cool new city ambience sounds.

Keep being creative!

Hello everyone,

As I am sure you are aware, Autodesk with their divine wisdom has removed all download links to versions 2016 and older, while sneakily auto-updating installed versions of 3DS Max to the latest versions.

This has caused a major problem as the HERO Engine export tools addon does not work for versions beyond 2016. We are in the process of updating these tools to work with the newer versions and will post details of our progress in this thread.

In the mean time we have a temporary solution. There is a way to download 3DS max 2016 through the AVA system and below is a tutorial explaining how to do so:

Downloading 3DS Max 2016 Instructions


0) This method doesn't appear to work with FireFox Browser, however Edge or Chrome can do it (from what we tested)

1) Go to the AVA portion of the website, here is the link: https://ava.autodesk.com/



2) Press the first option that says "Download Autodesk Products"

3) It will ask you whether you want try a new download experience which is currently in beta, say no.



4) Next it will ask you which product and release year you wish to download. At the bottom of the chat area there is a bar where you can type in your response. Type "3ds max 2016" and hit the enter key.

5) It will then ask you what sort of license you hold, "Paying Customer", "Student" or "30 Day Free Trial". Select the Option which is applicable to you. Note: That if you select Paying Customer you will need your license key handy for later.



6) After selecting your license type it will ask you which method you want to use to download the product. It will recommend downloading through your autodesk account but they are wrong on all planes of existence. Select the Download in AVA option.

7) There are a few last questions which are self-explanatory and if everything was done correctly you will receive a nice big Download Now Button



8 ) Press the Download Now button. It will then proceed to install the Autodesk Download Manager, or open it, if you already have it installed on your system. Once opened, you will find it downloading 3ds Max 2016 onto your system.



9) Once the download is finished, if you have selected the "Paying Customer" license type earlier, you will need to enter your license key as well as a product code.


10) All done... well not quite. In order to prevent 3DS Max from simply updating your version again you need to disable the Autodesk Desktop Manager Application Process BEFORE opening 3ds Max. This is a video demonstrating how to do that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_HZRDY-6Nk

This process should also work with older versions of 3ds max going back to 2014 based on our tests.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience of this entire situation and are working tirelessly to get the HeroEngine export tools working with the latest versions of 3DS Max. All progress in this area will be appended to this thread.

We thank you for your patience.

I have over a dozen reference photos. I want to make a presentation using them somewhat similar to Shadowgate. Using these commands you can teleport around the 3D landscape looking at holograms. There might even be animated scenes where NPCs in 3D are set against the backgrounds.

This is as always, an extension of my Virtual Meeting Place concept. Hoping to quickly finish this one as I have been considering options and asking for help for five years or so.... :(   This won't be the only usage of this concept. I will look forward to charging organizations a nominal fee to host VMPs for their organizations in a consistent 3D world.
