Default New MilkShape
I just installed MilkShape 3D v1.8.4 and it has the plugins included. (Thanks everyone) I'm off to let NeptuneSuzy teach me how to mesh. When I'm done I'll let you know how it turned out.

By reading this thread here I realized what I was doing wrong when trying to export my meshes, and now I feel so absolutely dumb for not getting it the first time >.< Too bad now I already deleted everything out of anger D= /has to re-do everything

Cool story bro... Cool story.

Would you be willing to have a look at the Unimesh bonetool?
It often crashes MS on Windows 7 64bit versions

This is not a new issue, it has been around a long time. It also manifests itself as a crash when opening a file in MilkShape. It happens when a Microsoft window is opened on top of one that uses OpenGL, and is a problem in the graphics driver. Try a different video driver, or roll back to an older one. Or, if you are using an ATI/AMD card, think about a better one.

Oh, i do indeed have a ATI(ATI Radeon™ HD 5450 1GB DDR3 graphics)
Only having these issues on the bonetool, tried to bypass the openGL but that doesn't change anything.
So it could be caused when TSRW for instance is also running?
Sometimes it works great, next moment i cant do anything with it..

ATI works with OpenGL, but not always reliably. I don't think they have testing OpenGL very high on their list, while DirectX, well that is most games.
Some of the other places I lurk where OpenGL is used have issues in these other applications that use OpenGL from ATI cards.
Mostly it is the drivers. Some of them work OK, then they make a new one that breaks something. I know it's a pain, but try some different ones, either older or newer. Make a note if one works better.

Besides MilkShape, Maya and a bunch of other 3D programs use OpenGL to do the mesh rendering within the program. A few, like 3DS Max, have drivers for either. But on OpenGL, with ATI cards, they sometimes crash when you put another window on top of them. It is something buried in the driver code that I cannot fix. I have experienced this in MilkShape and in Maya with ATI cards. The last few cards I have bought have been NVIDIA because of it.

Maybe since AMD took over they will improve this. Their cards are used on Macs, with OpenGL, and do not seem to have as many issues (from what I see in posts, I do not own a Mac) but those drivers are not the same as the ones for the PC.

Bloom and Wes, just FYI, I have the problem of the bone tool making Milkshape crash if I use it on my main PC which is a laptop with a built-in Intel GMA945 graphics chip. No changing to various different drivers or any other fiddling around with the settings has made a difference, and I don't have any other windows open when I'm using Milkshape either. But it all works fine on my other PC, which is a desktop with an nVidia graphics card. So I guess it has a problem with Intel graphics as well as the ones you mentioned.

Hi Wes! S3OC and S3PE came up with the ability to extract pets parts. I extracted some horse bridles, etc but Unimesh import doesn't see the skeleton correctly. Do you have an ETA on when Unimesh will be updated for pets? thanks you for giving us non programmers the ability to mod stufz! :0)

Clear instructions are in the first post. If you can't download MilkShape, that's a problem with the MilkShape site... not this site.

Oh oh, oooooh noooooo :-(

My aging Nvdia graphics card recently died, and was replaced by a brand new AMD Radeon HD 6800 series card.

Deciding to plunge into working on a brand new mesh, I selected my vertices and went to use the Unimesh bone tool....much to my horror, as soon as I clicked on anything within the bone tool window, the Milkshape application immediately crashes to desktop.

Items checked:

There are not two skeletons.
Unimesh - latest version
Milkshape - latest prefered version (1.8.4 is what I currently use)
Tried with both older and newst AMD Radeon drivers - no change
Windows version in use - XP, all updates current

Also tried - both with AND without the Mesa dll's in the milkshape folder - no difference at all.

Am I doomed? Is there no solution? Am I the only AMD Radeon card user that meshes with Milkshape and unimesh plugins?

If anyone knows a real solution, please do say so. The thought of doing this one by one in extended manual edit is just not pleasant.

Also note there are tutorals posted in the Tutorials section both here at MTS2 about Sims2 meshing and also at the MilkShape site about using MilkShape (generic meshing). The manual describes the plugin usage, but is not a tutorial.

Changed are:
The Importer, on body meshes, will no longer import a second skeleton. It doesn't even ask anymore.
There are also four new plugins added (all of which have been available here at MTS2 for testing).

Interim Importer Update: I have rolled back the V409A3 importer, which is not feeling well and crashes, back to the V409A importer. You need only download and replace the single file. My apologies.

<* Wes *>

Release 4.09 attached, posted 12-May-2007.
[The previous update was dated 15-Feb-2007]
Importer Interim Update 03-Dec-2007.

Install the full UniMeshPlugins.zip package into the MilkShape program directory (normally C:\Program Files\MilkShape 3D 1.8.2).

IT DOESNT WORK D:

Um... I don't know why but when I go into Milkshape the files don't appear so that i can open them so can anybody tell me how to download it or if I can download it with WinRAR or... how to open the specific file? Any help would be great. Thanks for the help if you give it to me. It is very appreciated. XD XD SushiXD

Are you talking about the plugin files? They're not supposed to be "opened" with MilkShape; they should be showing up as tools that you can use on your mesh files.

I think the Milkshape 3D thing tried to hack my system... it showed a little box with green numbers and a flickering on and off box thing. Is this bad...?
This was when I tried to run it....

Fixed Sims 2 finally, and now I have Homecrafter+!

Are you running 'FPS Limiter', by any chance? That creates a little box with green numbers flashing on and off. Milkshape doesn't do that, nor does it try to hack your system.
