Mesh Formats Imports Walruses

I'm posting this from a Mac, miles away from the nearest UnrealEd.exe, and I want to ask this.

Can UnrealEd import mesh formats like 3DS or OBJ into the editor?

If not, is there anything I can use to convert said whatevers to T3D?

Unrealed in UT2003 and UT2004 will import .ASE and .LWO formats. Unrealed in UT3 will import .ASE and .T3D formats. When I need to convert one format to another, I use a small program called Biturn, which you can find at this link:

It converts a large number of formats from one to another, and is very easy to use. I'm not sure if there's a version for the Mac though, you may have to google a bit to find something more suited for you.

Thass cool, but I'm using UnrealEd 2.0 for Unreal Tournament '99.

Ah, in that case you need Meshmaker, a small program that converts .T3D files into .u files that can then be accessed under the Decoration class. There used to be a site made by the author where you could download it and also find a tutorial, but I can't find it anymore. However, the program itself is available at this link

Meshes in UT99 are not very advanced though, and anything more elaborate than a simple decoration, like a tree or a chair, will not give you good results. However, they can be very useful when you want to create many instances of small objects, like lamps, vegetation, stone blocks, etc,.

Now, what can I use to get OBJs, 3DSs, and such to T3D files?

Best I could find is this:

You can use Biturn to convert .OBJ or .3DS to .ASE, then use the program at this link to convert to .T3D. Of course, all of these programs run on Windows, not Mac, which may complicates things. I hope all of this will be useful to you.

Excellent!

The Mac thing doesn't concern me, it's not as if I am stuck with it indefinitely.

Maybe I'll name a video game character after you...
