[Solved] How can I imagine the vehicle design in the Content tool? [EN]

  • Hello,

    I am David, and I strated to convert a bus into LOTUS, but I'm still a beginner, so i have two questions.

    My first question is, How can I imagine the vehicle design and development in the Content tool? The ContentTool is simmilar to blender, in the world of LOTUS simulator?

    So i converted the modells to x3d, and after that, i imported them into the CT. My main question is the next, can I create the entire bus in the Content Tool as one project?

    If i do that, finally i will get one lct file. Is this the right way of develop a bus, or tram in the game?

    My second question is not really a question, but rather a request. What is the sollution of this problem? If i want to save (or simply export) my work in the CT, i get this message (picture below).


    Thanks for the help everyone! :)

    Not really. You can not model the meshs here, but you can make light bulbs, animations or axles, for example.

    Yes, that's the way how it's done. :)

    Yes, it is. If you'll make sounds at sometime, that will be in a seperate container (.ltx, I think).

    That isn't an important message, your file will be still saved. You can fix that by going over the objects shown in the message and pressing W -> "Remove Doubles" in Edit Mode.


  • Thank you very much! The Double faces issue is fixed successfully, but i still see this message. What is the problem in this case? :)
