Version 4.3

USE THIS VERSION OF THE EXPORTER WITH BLENDER VERSION 2.80 AND LATER.
See here for Blender 2.79 and earlier.


This is a script addon for the Blender 3D program. It provides a means to create .S shape files for Microsoft Train Simulator or Open Rails.

The script includes a number of optimizations for higher frame rates and better GPU and CPU usage including:

Primitive consolidation which reduces batch calls by consolidating tris from different objects when they use the same material

Large primitives, vertex_sets, and subobjects are split as needed to prevent them from exceeding MSTS's loading limits.

Complex hierarchies are simplified and collapsed to prevent exceeding MSTS's hierarchy depth limits and to improve effectiveness of the primitive consolidation

The package includes:

- a custom panel on Blender's material tab, giving you access to all of the MSTS shader and lighting options.

- two example Blend files that demonstrate Texturing, LODs, and Animation

- an instuction manual
