    LOL! I have to admit that I made an error of 10 for the hight of the tower. I've checked that lately again and saw that Kristin's hight is only 168 units. The towers hight is 51k units. So 1 unit = 1 cm. Wich means the tower was 510 meters tall.

    But even a 51 m building from balsa wood couldn't be stable enough. Balsa is light but not weightless. You would need tons of balsa wood for this project. It can probably carry it's own wight if it's construction is good enough. But the wind power of a small breeze would blow it away.

    PS this was the "zero effort, just see what happens version" there is always opportunity for improvement. :D

    No problems at all with the model. I could print it as well, not at 1:1 or 1:10 but at 1:1000 = 51 cm ... but the stupid printer decided to give up ...
    Actually I'm not able to buy a new one. Sad ...

    Funny actually.... looking at this pic gives me an idea of how cool it would have looked under moonlight in game... sad that MA never migrated it over to CE2... ah well.

    Sorry about the printer Jamira. If there is anything you need to sell to afford a replacement please remember that option is always there (although getting the cash out might take 3 months :/ )

    Hmmm ... nothing left to sell. Got all the money during summer 2014. And it's all gone: 3D-printer, Mazda MX5, Rhino3D, PlayStation 4 Pro + PSVR, Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, several books, games and movies, big TV, new guitar, dental protheses, a very expensive picture ... my map of Skyrim alone, printed at linnen, took 900 PED. Now I'm bankrupt.

    Elektor in Germany has a special offer on 3D printers right now.

    Hehe, I don't want a cheap printer. I want the follower of my old one. And kits for self-assambly are a no-go for me. Wich means: 500 Euro atm.
     
  9. This is a bit of an old bump, but thought I would share some relevant info. I've recently been doing some research info recreating the old world, or developing a rudimentary server emulator (much harder option given the lack of recorded packets), after discovering this Gamebryo era rip: https://archive.org/details/EntropiaUniverse180208

    Recently I've had some success with loading the models straight from the game files, including everyones favorite tower of oblivion, I took some random grabs and uploaded them to the gallery here if anyone wants to take a look: https://imgur.com/a/LHwR6iX

    If you wish to try this yourself you will need Dragon Unpacker to extract the BNT archives, and the latest version of NifSkope v1 (v2 has issues with Entropia at this time). Some models, specifically creatures it seams, do not load at this time and may require some slight modifications to the NifSkope source, I might look into this later but really my goal was the buildings and those seam to be working fine.

    Texture wise I'm currently working on it. The NIF files do contain the proper texture names, so it should be possible to write a script to convert to obj while remapping them. The problem comes in that when you extract the textures they come out as numerical dat files instead of their proper file names. There two options here that I'm pursing:
    1. Figure out where the file list is in the game files so that they can be properly renamed.

    2. Ironically, unless something has changed the CryEngine files have their proper names. It may be possible to use those. The main problem I see is that many of the unused textures have probably been removed, or in the case of some like CND modified, by now.

    @McCormick do you still have the older CryEngine textures folder where you found the casino? Back when the game first switched I remember digging through those files (and being just as intrigued by that Casino) and it seamed like they just dumped their entire folder in unused or not, that folder could prove helpful.

  10. I have it all on some backup drives and I had a tool, provided by a friendly player to look at and work with every single 3D file...but that was a decade ago...Ill be back...

    I think I also have an archive of (iirc) the last version of the game just before cryengine update and the game just after the first cryengine release.

    I'll have a hunt... it may have been on the disc that died though :'(

    Great initiative though. Be interesting to see how you get on. Always love to see that tower. At some point I plan to play around with it some more and print something based on it. But it's waaaay down the priority list right now.

    Just looking at that McCormick vid again, you know... if he could do it... I wonder why MA couldn't..

    I'm not having much luck finding my backups of entropia :'(

    Just accidentally came across them on an old USB stick... uploading to googledrive now. Hoping I can make a share from that

    OK there are two files, one is the last version of Entropia before CE2, the other is the first version of CE2 (before they started hiding all the files).

    I find myself intrigued by fungus_mountains_alien.mtl and vegetation_plant_flesheatingtrunk... also B_Mutantslum_corona_001, building_exterior_Calypsoferry_001, building_vehiclestation_001, building_warcannon_001, building_wreckage_titancarrier_001, building_smallspaceship_001, building_skyscraperarcade_001, building_SkyscraperStreet_001, building_SlumIndustrialAreaFourB_001, building_publicdropship_001, building_CityShieldGen_001, building_Briggheim_001, biological_land_acidant_001, biological_land_freak_003, biological_land_spacebug_001.

    In particular: mechanical_land_spider_bomber_001
     
  15. Thanks for digging this up. If google drive fails you another option is Mega.
