Make nwn1 placeables with nwn2 placeables

Hello ! :)

All is in the title : I want to know if it is possible to transform a nwn2 placeable in a nwn1 placeable ?

I saw, in nwn1, a lot of them done.

If it is possible, how to do it ?

If someone explain to me, maybe, I'll try to do a special hack with them :)

Thanks in advance !

@Anamorphose,

Basically, you need to export models and textures to the 3D modelling program of your choice (i.e.. Blender, Gmax or 3DSMAX) make fixes there, then export as NWN1 mdl. I don't know if there's any other method. Keep in mind, that there are NWN2 things you can't do for NWN1, like bump maps - so, in some cases, the resulting placeables will be slightly  different.

BTW

For this kind of topics (making/converting stuff)  it'll be better to put this kind of post in Custom Content sub - forum.

Sorry, I had few difficult to understand how the forum is organised, so I made a mistake.

Thanks for all ! :)

In order to get NWN 2 models or Fallout 3 models or Skyrim models or any other model into NWN 1 as a placeable, all you really have to do is load the model up into your 3D model editing program, attach it to an Aurora base, and export it.  The only hard part is loading the model into your 3D editor.  There are some other problems which may crop up (such as models loading as individual triangles instead of full meshes, or textures needing to be converted to a different format), but those are generally pretty easy to deal with- although they may take some time.  See my NWNTutorials channel on YouTube for examples of models in NWN imported from other games.  Know that TheGeorge imported a LOT of models from NWN 2 into NWN 1.  He didn't do a very good job of it, but he did get the hardest part taken care of.

If you are looking for the NWN 2 houses and buildings, I converted most of them to NWN 1 placeables. None of them have the blurry NWN 2 textures any more though, because I think that they look crappy and even if they looked better still wouldn't fit into NWN 1 tilesets. There are also a few models in this hak that were unfinished models found in the NWN 2 archives. I've finished those models and also made a few variation of other house models.

The hak can be found here: https://neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/hakpak/house-placeables-conver...
