Hey there,
I started to do objects for the WIP-Envi project and tried to import something for the first time now. (Only a simple testblock so far, but cool stuff is coming!)
So the problem is, when I want to select the collection I only can choose between, Common, TMCommon, SMCommon, Storm, Canyon und Stadium but NO Valley!
I know Valley isn't really popular, but this... :roflol:
I'm sure the fail is at my side, but could you help me?
Greez, Wooloo

Just a silly thought... do you have the latest importer? Check in the material lib if there is Valley.
And did you try the title Id TMValley also? :arrow: http://doc.maniaplanet.com/dedicated-se ... leids.html

hi,

maybe I can help =)
I wrote a tutorial about import, and I used Valley materials for my item
I know my tuto is in french, but I think there are enough screenshots for you to understand it
I didn't use convert assistant but NadeoImporter
but you if your error is in the xml files, you should find it there ;)

Last version of Convert Assistant have Valley under collections.
Maybe you are using outdated version of Convert Assistant, you can download last version from link in the first post.

Oh... That could be the solution :oops:
I've used the link from this german tutorial.
Apparently it is an outdated version since the link to the convert assistant doesn't go to the Vinummusik-link but to a dropbox.
Probably the NadeoImporter isn't right then too, but I couldn't find a proper link for it so far.

This tutorial looks quite good and in-depth! But it's quite hard to understand with Google Translate... :/ Thanks though! :thx:

Nadeo importer > http://doc.maniaplanet.com/creation/importer/

or direct link > http://files.maniaplanet.com/tools/Nade ... _10_22.zip

I recommend to download the sample files too and take a look into them, there are all needed files (blend, xml etc.)
:thumbsup:

Works great in combination with the new CA :yes: maxi did an awesome job here :clap: :thx:

And you should may use blender 2.74 > https://www.blender.org/features/past-releases/2-74/

I got some errors with the new blender 2.75 while exporting to fbx

Hello Maxi
Will the Convert Assistant support the lagoon environment in the future?

Sorry guys, but what could be the problem?

I ran into a similar error and found the root cause for my case in here: viewtopic.php?p=308540#p308540

Short version:
Don't combine: materials with direct library material names, without <material/> entry in xml + materials with a <material/> entry in the xml.
Don't combine: <material/>s with Link= and <material/>s with Model= in the same xml.

E.g. use always customer material names in your editor (.fbx consequently), and always use <material Model=.../> (Hack necessary in that case).
