How to import Improved Metal Shield

Introduction

This is an automatically generated tutorial. It will guide you through the process of importing the model Improved Metal Shield of the bundle Improved Metal Shield. Please note that all the screenshots in this tutorial were made using a Mac, however it should be no problem to interpret what is equivalent on a Windows or Linux machine.

Extract and Access

I am assuming that you have already downloaded the file Improved Metal Shield.zip and know where it is located on your hard drive. The file is compressed as a zip archive. Most modern operating systems allow you to unzip the archive by double clicking it and dragging the contents out to the desktop (or any other place).

When you have extracted the archive, it should look like this:

Improved Metal Shield
Metal_Shield_Tier2.mdx

Open World Editor and click Module -> Import Manager:

This is the Import Manager. From here you can add and remove custom files from your map file:

Importing Metal_Shield_Tier2.mdx

Now Click the "Import File" Button:

Next select 'Metal_Shield_Tier2.mdx' in the folder which you extracted from the zip archive:

Improved Metal Shield
Metal_Shield_Tier2.mdx

The file has been properly added to the map archive:

Metal_Shield_Tier2.mdx
Model
6
war3mapimported/Metal_Shield_Tier2.mdx

Done, you have imported the file Metal_Shield_Tier2.mdx.

You're done

You have now imported your model. Don't be afraid when you place the object and it appears to be a purple cube. Just close the map, re-open it and it will look fine in the World Editor.

If you did exactly as this guide told you and it did not work properly. Please make a thread in the Modeling & Animation Forum containing the following:

  • Link to the model and the tutorial
  • Precise description of what does not work
  • The map you tried to import it to (with the model imported)
And we will do what we can to help you.
