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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
