TPB3D models..... download link here.
« on: May 23, 2014, 09:28:11 AM »
Hello everybody. This thread is dedicated to sharing models for use within the TPS community. A dropbox folder has been set up which contains all of the ride and scenery files which were created by the community for the game TPB3D (now defunct).

I have worked with jrrcoasterfan to arrange these files so that it will be easy for the community to find and download these existing models. Please raise any questions, concerns and suggestions about using the dropbox folder within this thread.

To make use of these community models there are 2 requirements.

Firstly is it a requirement that you give credit to the author/creator of the original model. This Is A Must, NO Exceptions! The original author/s or creator/s can be identified from most of the file names, by the text following the dash. Where this is not possible, please give credit to the “TPS community model dropbox”.

If there is not a "read me" text file already present within the zip folder you download, We advise that you place a "read me" text file inside a scenery folder if you intend to redistribute it. It is important to try and do this as a matter of respect.

Secondly, when using these models if you can find a way to convert the file over to another modelling file type, please resubmit the new version to the TPS community model dropbox by sending a PM to either myself or jrrcoasterfan, so that we can take care of adding it to the correct folder as soon as possible! For example, if you download a 3Ds file please try to convert to a .skp file if this format is not already available for the item. Our goal is to have most model files available in as many file formats as possible.

We also welcome the submission of any new models that you would like to share with the community in the same way. Thank you for your co-operation in helping us to become the best theme park design community in the world!

This might sound like a stupid question but how do I import these files into the game?

I am not positive about all modeling programs, but with me knowing Sketchup you need to download the .dae exporting plug in. Once you've modeled or downloaded a model and do all the necessary tid bits, then you must export the file into .dae format.

If anybody can explain how this works for blender, 3Ds, or any other program, please let us know. Whether those programs already include those exporting plug ins, or if it has to be downloaded and installed!
Thank you!

if you are using Sketchup, MAKE SURE you convert the materials to jpeg, and You have to Fiddle with Moving Some Textures to make them Look Right. just Started playing with the Water Bottle Cart.

sketchup does use jpg, and png as well.... jpg images/textures have a lower file size.

I don't Think TPS uses .tga for Textures, or am I far off?? that's why I converted the Textures to Jpg.

TPS uses .jpg, .png and dds. files. EDIT: Tested .tga files... and they also work in TPS! TPS icons are in .tga format.

 I use jpg and png on my models, plus you can import textures intoTPS as jpg or png.

 My skyboxes used .dds files.

Great job guys!  Busy weekend already, but had a chance to pop a few rides in 3D Max. 1 out of 3 rides imported nicely, but the other two gave me errors. 3D Max users must import the 3DS- very simple. The thing is, the UV Map is totally not mapped as far as I can see. Meaning, you will have to remap all textures back to their respetice pieces. At least that's what I saw with German Taco-Sartori's  Techno Jump (which is a nice model btw).
