    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but i searched the forums and couldn't find a good explanation.

    So please explain it to me if you know, Thanks a lot! [​IMG]
     
  2. I may be wrong, but I think this is the tool that allows custom content creators to start programming their own objects. Or it may be a tool that allows people to just create new objects, instead of changing existing ones with T-mog.

    Oh, Thats neat! Is it like an in-game program to make content? Or is it out of game?
     
  4. I don't know. I'm guessing based on what I read on the blog, plus I'm just reading into the name of the tool. "Sprite Maker" tells me it's something to create "sprites" that are used to make game objects.

    I could be totally wrong, but that's what it seems like to me.

    Seems like they're not making a huge deal of it though.

    Where did you see this? Im so confuzzeled.
     
  7. I'm afraid alot of people missed this on the blog because they have no idea what a spritemaker is. I have a feeling it has nothing to do with making elves and fairies. Guess we'll all be surprised when it's finished and we can play with it.

    Its a plugin for 3DSMax that allows you to export a 3D model as an image (complete with alpha channel) that can be used to create custom content.

    Do you know if it will require 3DSMax on our end? That program is too expensive for simple means...

    I guess I'll just wait and see what its all about.

    The current 3D Studio Max plugin is called "Sims Sprite Exporter". They may have changed the name now with the EA Land updates.

    I'm guessing this new "EALandSpriteMaker" is a tool for scripting or creating new objects in-game. My guess could be completely wrong.

    Yes you do need 3DS it's just a utility to export a model, not sure if there is a free application out there that supports autodesk utilities.
