Hey guys, I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I really need some help...
I'm working on making a film, however I've been stopped dead in my tracks. The film I'm making is about the SCP foundation, and there aren't many high quality models on websites like sketch fab that I can use. Particularly, I need a model of a Mobile Task Force Unit. After searching all over the web and having no luck, I decided to try and rip some custom models from games like Garry's Mod and Arma 3. I quickly realized that I suck at ripping game models because I cannot align the textures with the solider when I use Arma 3, and I cannot find the textures corresponding to a certain mesh when I use Gary's Mod. I used the following programs:
Blender - the place where I will animate everything
Ninja-ripper - a program I used to rip model files from arma 3
Noesis - a program to quickly view 3d meshes without having to import them all
Gimp - the program i use to identify textures
Gmad Extractor - the program i used to extract files from Gary's Mod Addons
Crowbar - the program i used to convert files from Gmad Extractor into something usable by blender.
I've given up on ninjaripper and Arma 3 due to the fact that the textures won't align with the meshes, so I'm working with the Gary's Mod files for now. Gary's mod would be easy to work with if it wasn't for the fact that the models I'm ripping have a ton of different parts. If anyone thinks they might know how to either get the Gary's mod files or better yet, the arma 3 files working, please let me know. I've searched everywhere and I really don't know what to do at this point.
Here's a link to the addon page for Gary's Mod if anyone can figure it out: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1687982696download.jfif
If someone does know how to rip model files, these are the two MTF soldiers I'm going for.
Thank you so much for reading this far. I am deeply sorry that this may not be in the right place but I really need some help. If you need any more information please contact me.
