BRIAGE

BRIAGE is a Blender Add-on which allows its users to export animations and meshes into a DTG Train Simulator 20XX compatible format.

Since November 2015, I work on Dom107's exporter to extend its features :

    1. Blender Interfaces
      • UI panel for materials and textures (properties>material)
      • UI panel for IGS export options (properties>scene)
      • UI panel for IA export options (properties>scene)
      • UI pop-ups about common export mistakes (+prints short logs to Blender system console)
      • UI panel to select TS directory (user prefs>addons)
      • All options packed into *.blend file: no more IGS_mod_file!

    2. Materials features
      • Shader list imported dynamically from TS
      • Non-listed shaders may be used (ex: TrainBump.fx)
      • Comment driven behaviors options available
      • "UV scroll" and ViewFacing options available

    3. Textures features
      • Texture paths can be taken directly from Blender image path

    4. Export features
      • Exports vertex weights and armatures (IGS and IA)
      • Exports vertex colors
      • Exports object color
      • Exports Snap-points
      • Exports Blender instances
      • Multiple animation hierarchies supported on export
      • Textures can now be placed also in parent and sibling directories
      • Texts, curves, meta and surfaces are automatically converted on export if they have 1 material
      • Number of texture slots checked for common shaders
      • Saved per scene (allows multiple IGS options to be stored in one *.blend; useful when exporting objects with skinned parts!...)
      • Trim unused animation range on export

    5. Import features
      • Import IGS and IA files made with 3DSMax, 3DC or Blender
      • Missing IA objects/bones or added automatically on import

BRIAGE for Blender 2.83 and 2.79.7 is even faster than everything before! it is even faster than its original implementation or his Max counterpart!

A detailed manual is included in pdf format within the downloaded archives in English. You may even send your translation to the current maintainer for inclusion in main distribution!
