Releaseday

It took a month longer then expected, but trackMaker is ready for a public release !

TrackMaker is a collection of scripts for the 3dpackage Autodesk Maya, aimed specifically on the track creation process for games.

I’ve put some documentation online with more info :

And the previous released videos which show the plugin in action :

The main goal was to be able to create a racetrack while maintaining all dynamic relationships, ensuring the user can still tweak the layout, individual lofts and props….run the exporter and directly iterate in game. This way iteration-times should go from hours/days to minutes. Besides that I wanted to make it as user friendly as possible so that everyone with a basic knowledge of a 3d package can use this.

TrackMaker was tested on Maya 2009&2013 64 bit, but should work on all Mayas, 32&64 bit from 2009 and higher (Most functions will probably even work on Maya 2008 and older though).

Pricing will be set at 5,50 euros (5 euros + 0,50 paypal costs), for that you get this plugin and support (hotfixes, patches and explanations) to get you started.

You can get your own copy by mailing me at bjornklaassen@gmail.com.

cheers !
Bjorn Klaassen

PS. Due to an unforeseen holiday communication/handling orders will be quite slow this week, so it may take 1-3 days before you get your copy.

PPS. If you have questions about why I decided to go for a small symbolic fee instead of a free release, you can always mail me about it.

    • Thanks, yes. I would like to know more about the features that aren’t talked about in the youtube clip and also about the overall features, and those features that are unique for this script. This is i going to be posted as a standard article, later on maybe we can do an interview about you and your work with this script, what do you think about that?
