Jamira's archive of 3d grabs

    Years ago (2009) we had an epic event. Leona Cat Srelliw created and managed "Battle Royale". I was honored to help her amongst others. I was the traitor :-(

    During preparation of the event I made a lot of 3d-grabs of Zychion Citadel for designing a map (stolen from a russian dominated society):
    I got the permission to grab 3d-content from Entropia for private purpose before by the MA official Simon. He was also involved as "surprising guest" and was mortal during the event. My partner as saboteur.

    Well, during my years in PE/EU I made a lot of 3d-grabs. Nearly 200. Not enough! I regret this today. It's not longer possible and much of the old 3d-content has gone meanwhile.

    However, I archived this models as 3ds max-files. There is an old thread about it:
    Unfortunately my licence for 3ds max 2016 will end within one year. So I decided to convert it all to STL-files. That means I can read them with my unlimited Rhino 3D - or whatever. I spent the whole day with the first half. 001 to 100. Nearly further 100 to do. Parallel I made a register for myself. While running this I thought I should offer all this stuff to the community. I made a PDF of the register.


    The numbers are kinda chronological. Means this "Part I" contains old stuff. Feel free to ask me for 3d-models from this. Just send me a PM.

    I will do the rest during the next days and make a "Part II"-PDF. Hopefully this Dropbox thingy will work:

    Thanks to Tass. Here is another link:


    And here comes Part II:

    Dropbox should actually work. Like any cloud hosting service. Personally I prefer Google Drive, because I use Google for Email, Youtube, etc anyway, so I'm always logged in and it has Google Docs of course, and it's easy:
    - https://drive.google.com/drive/my-drive
    - drag and drop file in the browser area
    - right click file in Drive and choose "Get shareable link"
    - copy and paste link in post

    And now you got my attention :) Because maps. It's incredibly time consuming to do them manually. I think it took 3 days to do the map for the old CG: http://www.entropiaplanets.com/wiki/Calypso_Gateway_(Old)#Main_Building_Map

    If it was possible to grab at least the structures of an area with the correct measurements as a base for a map that would be great. Currently I have a half finished map of Battle Simulator...

    Thank you, I will try it with Google drive:

    Okay works! Now I can drop Dropbox.

    Regarding maps. Unfortunately the software I used for the grabs (3DRipper DX) doesn't work anymore. But if you find another tool to grab 3d-content, it will be easy. Measurement is easy as well. My grabbed avatar was 2 units tall. Wich is correct because old Jamira is 2 m tall. MA uses something like 1:1 or 1:1000 or whatever.
    My grabber got all geometry from the ingame scene wich was rendered ... the field of the camera. What you see is what you get. That was the reason for all the Zychion grabs. An item behind a house isn't visible for the camera and the grabber doesn't "see" it neither. You must run/fly around the house and make another grab. Later you may use any 3d-software wich can handle polygon nets to adjust the single grabs to each other and stick them together.

    I made grabs of almost all apartments and houses player can buy (Calypso, Arkadia, Rocktropia and Monria ofcourse, because I made them). I will list them in Part II of my archive. I made a comparison of them in Rhino. You may ask me for special parts of my archive and I can send it to you.
    Furthermore I can help you making maps if you want. Even without grabbed geometry. It seems my GC works again and I can spy on all corners of the Universe and make maps of them. Otherwise I'm out since years. What is a "Battle Simulator"? LOL!
    Okay, just tell me what you need.

    At number 155. That is a grab from Calypso Space Station:
    And here comes the tricky part of our Universe: You as pilot will have all the planets and moons near by you:
    In the middle Jamira in her Quad, right Calypso with its two moons, right down Monria, left down Rocktropia, left up Arkadia and Cyrene.
    Damn close and small all that. LOL!

    OHA! It took three days. Now "Part II" is ready for download (see first post). It's too big for Googles virus check? Insane! Here is my check with AVIRA:

    Funde = findings
    Warnungen = warnings
    I'm sure in the dark depths of my archives are more grabs. Especially some from Arkadia. I will search them during next weeks.

    Wow Jamira! That is quite a treasure trove of memories you have there and OMG YOU SAVED THE TOWER!!!!! :DDDDD I used to LOVE that thing! So tall, so mysterious. I tried many times to find a way up. You know what, it would make my year next year if we could launch some sort of community project to get that thing redesigned for Cryengine so it could be sent to MA and simply "plopped" back into the game. Better still, if we could somehow give it an inside so people could actually go up. If I went the whole hog, if a propper mission/narative/text adventure could be designed around it, that would be my dream.... or maybe the tower is just forever a mystery. In some ways I kinda like it that way too. Regardless, Calypso needs it back.

    (haha I just pondered how big it would be at 1:12 scale... haha TOO big :D - I think I'd need planning permission!)


    Yeh the ship had bunks. That didn't escape my imagination either. Actually I had a bit of a story in mind with some scenes in those ships. Wistrel electrocuted someone in that bunk room with Mind force. >) I did like the original ships. I think I have a video somewhere of one landing (but I'm not sure it was very good/clear)

    A 2nd thought occurs about that tower... I'm pondering how much work would be required to import it into unity (eyes oculus rift =-) )

    My Unity/VR development skills to date produced two achievements:

    1. a coloured lighting room with a massive picture of grumpy cat on the wall (which was strangely rather awesome in VR)

    2. making myself incredibly sick when I cocked up movement in a sort of "fly around landscape" thing.

    Okay, I miss the big tank, the gunboat, some stuff from Cyrene/Arkadia and the helicopter isn't complete. But all in all it looks impressive:
    Let's think about what to do with it.

    Yeah, I was up to do something like that with this tower way back in the past:
    But I was too lazy to continue with this comic. And one day we were able to drive and fly. But I agree with you: this was one of the most mysterious and interesting things in the game. Nearly at this time I had an interesting talk to Epic, the author of a crazy story about his adventures with these mutants - forgot the name. We talked about repair and run one of this spaceships at Port Atlantis or Chucks Hideout
    Just to fly to Akbal-Cimi and fuck off that bad robots. LOL!

    That were the good times!
    Probably I should really finish a very old project before I run all others: "The Calypso Blues" ...

    I also put the old spaceship to my download area:
    Have fun!

    Haha! I found it:

    Thanks Jamira. I've saved it. I don't know what will go into Unity or Cryengine2 (since I never tried to import) but when I next have them installed I'll give it a go. Would defo be fun to look at that tower in VR. I wonder if I could find a desert landscape available somewhere to stand it on :D

    edit: ooh ta! Grabbed spaceship too. That may serve me a different purpose.

    PS love the comic!

  17. If you want to get a grab of a tank, let me know, I have a soc mate who has one.
  18. Jamira

    Jamira Samurai Girl

    Sure I want it. What software does your soc mate use for the grabs?
  19. No, sorry, he has the tank itself if you can still grap it?
