    Have you complete all maps so all you have to is insert them??

      I've only completed editing all the maps up to Petalburg City, I'm still having a hard time inserting other maps, and I must restart on some because I have to use the same maps with the same terrains so my map connections aren't messed up or bugged.

          Hello, i don't know if i've ever posted on these forums before but I do have a suggestion for this tool.

          Couldn't you make it work like advancemap by having predefined tiles/models such as tall grass, trees, etc. that is placed like with gba mapping and then have it combine all the models into one .obj and then convert it(or make a converter)?

          --------------------------------------

          Also I know how to export and import the maps correctly but I don't know how to actually model them in sketchup. My friend showed me how to use sketchup, but I don't know how to model without screwing up the map. For example when I tried to model littleroot town from twinleaf i deleted the fences painted the flowers and sand to be grass, added trees, etc. it looked fine in the editor except for it looked like it had issues on "No textures" mode where some things looked like they had holes or something and entering the map in game resulted in a crash saying something about "Invalid GX command ########" where # are random numbers and the message wouldn't stop popping up until i closed the emu itself.(No$Gba). Any help would be appreciated.

          Also Spiky, do you have skype, it would be easier for asking questions.

          Thanks for the tool

          Edit: Another suggestion that is important is map connections but you probably already have it planned

            I hate this idea.. a lot of useless work and impossibile to realize.
            Each tree isn't made of one model, all trees are a single model with larger and smaller faces: you cannot copy-past trees in that model without create new faces with different lenghts (and texture them). The same for grass, cliffs, etc...

            Hate to rain on your parade, but that was one of the first things implemented. That's accomplished by editing your map matrix.

            Do you plan on music hacking too? Or will the dive feature be implemented?

              Sorry for the lack of updates, but today I have a screenshot that is worth a thousand words. Thanks to Link_971 we now have a French translation of the tool (German and Chinese on the works as well), and HGSS scripts are nearly done.

              However, one of the most interesting additions in version 1.7.0 will probably be Generation V support for headers, matrices and maps (the latter partial). It began as a test branch, but now it's official in the main version and you'll be able to edit any of the four games in all languages.

              Thanks for your support, enjoy the picture!

                    Now this would be excellent and would make life alot more easier with doing scripts for the games, knowing that it's currently only possible by doing it manually and using a LUA script to find out it's location in order to find out where it is.

                    I'm looking forward to the next version! Best of luck to you, Marc! ^^

                      As long as you've got Maya 7.0 along with the Nintendo NITRO-System plugins for it, then you're good to develop models and export them as .imd (Nitro Intermediate Format). Then converting it with g3dcvtr.exe and importing them with SDSME, which can already be achieved... though I'm not sure about the animations of the models though.

                        That looks so good! I'm really now just waiting for a RSE remake. That will be so awesome!

                          Yeah, I have Maya 6.0 and the Nitro plugins. I made an arceus model (not animated atm) to replace the white kyurem one in the Pokémon White 2 splash screen (title screen).
                          But the nsbmd of arceus has different size (byte size) than the kyurem one and if I replace it all the narcs above will be moved down causing rom crash. XD

                          To do animated nitro system binary models you need only to export also the animation (.ica) with the maya nitro plugins.

                          If you use ndstool to break apart the rom by it's filesystem, you can replace any file regardless of it's size, then use the tool to rebuild the rom.

                            Actually there's some other steps you have to do, but I'm not quite sure of what. If you do exactly what you said, then the model when you import it into SDSME will look all weird and have blank textures.

                              However, one of the most interesting additions in version 1.7.0 will probably be Generation V support for headers, matrices and maps (the latter partial). It began as a test branch, but now it's official in the main version and you'll be able to edit any of the four games in all languages.

                              Thanks for your support, enjoy the picture!

                              I hope you will be online soon on Skype, I've alot to talk about :D

                                I've been offline this week because of a small vacation, now I'm back working on SDSME. Today I finished implementing the German strings into the tool, which makes it already available in 5 languages. I hope this version will be awesome for you all.

                                By the way, I've seen today an early OBJ->NSBMD converter that does the trick without plugins or anything else. I think this may open DS hacking to even more people

                                    I'm viewing the list of internal names of the maps in pokemon platinum and don't know which is which. Is there a way I could change the names to the ones you see in the game?

                                      Of course you can change them, as long as the name doesn't exceed 16 characters. Also, keep in mind it's only for the game you are editing, not for every game you open since editing the names

                                      EDIT: Version 1.7.0 is now available for download. It introduces the script viewer, and most importantly, Gen V support. Other minor additions and fixes have been done as well, like a new coordinate system in the buildings editor, a trainer class editor or a sound file list. Hope you enjoy it!
