    Eh took me 2 hours to just make the bridge.. I was having difficulty learning all the controls and such at first but i got it down pretty quick.

    I've got to make some other bridge things for certain area's, going to make a good drag tree also.

    This bridge I made can be used by anyone just please give credit..

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/7egkcskfq57p7bs/bridge_01.dae

    There are some imperfections because its my first project ever lol.. But Its pretty nice. And yes i know the middle pillar on the side is bigger. planning to add more to the mesh later on.

    Hey, just got a question, how do you scale the objects, they appear to be huge! But they do have collision.

    Not related - You wouldn't know where my .ter files are, would you? I created a new map but they aren't there

    Thanks

    The scale tool is on the left in Sketchup

    (imported from here)

    You can also use the transform tool inside BeamNG :)

    And I'm not too sure, did you save it properly?

    Yea, I saved it properly, when you make you maps, and click save as, do you get a .ter file where you saved it?

    Thanks

    Sometimes it saves it in the beamng/levels folder, not the map folder. You'd need to drag it into your maps folder and then update the mapname.mis with Notepad++ to make it point to that file when you load the map. :)

    I don't suppose there is any way in making actual cars in this?

    Would be 100 times easier to use than blender or 3dsmax.

    It is, Sam mentioned his skateboard being sketch up. Sketchup is the only modeller I am remotely proficient in (read as: can make a box :p ) so it would be nice if I could import to beamNG. But somehow I think the day a guide for cars is released will begin an influx of poorly done 3d warehouse rips which is the reason I opted not to ask about it.

    Perhaps I will simply take a look at blender instead.

    Read my post above there somewhere^ It's up a few. ;)

    EDIT: First page actually!

    I sure did make the Skateboard in Sketchup, though there's a catch..

    You can't make a whole vehicle with only Sketchup, I actually modelled in Sketchup and imported into Blender for some tidying and UV-Mapping. So using Sketchup alone isn't possible, as each component needs it's own name and mesh group for BeamNG to load.

    Thank's @DrowsySam!

    Maybe you want to add the Node Sketchup has many free models for use with BeamNG then.
    Would be very interesting for all those Sketchup newbies now :D

    This is what I meant. The models you download on the 3d warehouse are not free for use with BeamNG. You don't own them and terms of service for the 3d warehouse is that google owns the copyright to them (which sucks, it should stay with the uploader only). For you to port them into beamNG for your own use, thats fair enough, but to upload them here would be a copyright violation. Just because something is free to download doesnt mean its free to redistribute.

    Besides. Most of the stuff on the warehouse is unsuitable anyway and would make for a terrible port.

    Yes but i meant to use it for your own.
    Most things on the Internet have some copyrights when given freely.
    You should always be careful!
