Exporting
Hello,

At the moment I am considering various engines for the front end of a simple client and server project I am working on. The server is basically a proof of concept for a component based entity system. On to my question..

Is it possible to export the world editors static mesh to any format? Essentially I want to import the mesh to blender and export it as .bullet to use on for collisions on the server-side of my project.

If this is not possible can I import a mesh to be used as terrain and then texture it in the world editor? This route will allow me to generate a .bullet format for use in the server before use in the world editor.

EDIT: Another question. Is it possible to export the heightmap from the world editor. Essentially this would server the same purpose.

Thank You

I don't think so. I have never come across such a feature.

Good news however it requires the use of Esenthel on the server which is not always a great solution for a multitude of reasons.

Actually, will the semi support of bullet I wonder if it is possible to export using that library.. Interesting. Time to play.

You can always extract the physical bodies from game and store them to anything you'd like.
access Game::Area::Data::mesh (or phys if available) and save to custom file.
