All my trees from Dexsoft packs came with two textures .. one for the trunk and one for the leaves, so I'm not quite sure whats going on there. They sometimes provide an image of the whole tree to be used as a billboard for the final LOD.

I bought the vegetation pack 1. http://www.dexsoft-games.com/bundles/vegetation1.html


This is what I got as an example of oak2 folder.

map_Kd oak1_c.tga










The file oak1_c.tga is the full texture and when converting using obj2gmf it produces 1 surface looking for oak1_c.mat


Also I notice if I convert using obj2gmf the tree is on it's side in the scene in model viewer, but correct when converting the fbx versions.


Seems that some trees do have 2 textures, but others not.

Not sure if others have come across these trees yet then I guess.

Yes, you are right. I'd previously converted the Balm, Cherry, Birch and GiantWood trees from the vegetaion pack which all had seperate textures for the trunk and foliage (bbarkCo.tga and bBushCo.tga in the case of the balm tree ... normal and specular textures are included too). Following your post I've now checked the oak_01 and oak_02 models and they do indeed only reference a single texture. I had never converted those as I wasn't that impressed with those particular models.


Not really sure what you can do about that other than find some alternate textures for them and UV map them in something like Ultimate Unwrap 3D Pro or some other suitable application.


This was one of their earliest vegetation packs and does not have the quality of some of the later one's imho.

In UU3D you could split them by UV, then make a copy of the single texture using a suffix like 2 or b and then add it as a new material group and asign one to the trunk and one to the leaves this would allow using a seperate shader on each, keeping the original UV mapping.

Yeah. I got UU3d Pro, but I am a programmer first, so was kinda hoping not to have to dig into that, but I guess I will have a play then cutting up the image.


Image is 50/50 so easy to cut it and make 2.


Murphy's Law I would choose the first one to convert that has an issue from 150 odd models I bought. lol.


Thanks for help tho guys.

About Dexsoft packs, I have recently purchased the fantasy House and Blacksmith packs, but when I tried to insert the houses in the Leadwerks Editor I didn't succeeded to activate a correct physic for collision (even if I set collision to "Scene" in their properties and tried to re-create the .phy file with the LE phy-tool) and the character pass through the house walls. I'd like to know if any other purchased the medieval houses from them and succeeded to have collisions work (and how).
