Hello fellows!

I'm thinking I want to do some modding/hosting this summer. What's the best way to get playertypes/items out of Blender and into Blockland nowadays?

You have to use empties to animate stuff though, right?

for the most part yea. You won't really need bones unless you plan to make playertypes with connected vertices that animate. For things like weapons and vehicles, bones are seldom needed

If you absolutely need vertex weights in your animated model to smooth out bendy parts or whatever, then you should probably use Milkshape 3D though

I guess I'll try to appease my super old Blender installation with the right version of Python if I want to do any playertype work. Thx!
