I've used it and it's somewhat useful. However the lack of good tutorials for BT means I always return to B2SCS any way.

Having support in BT so I can just directly import into BT without converting would be far more useful, and would probably go a long way for pushing me into BT instead of B2scs.

For an average user B2SCS is just a much more user friendly, it's simple and easy to use. BT not so much.

In fact BTools is more user friendly and a better tool.

But as you know 50keda, the usual import process for BTools is just so unnecessary for a user/player. That's why nobody wants to use it.

But after m4wl released ConverterPIX, it's really easy now, thanks to him.


So if you're planning to add direct pmd/pmg importing support for amazing BTools, please do that. No need for a poll :D

@Moh and lack of tutorials: Well there is a thread for tutorial suggestions: viewtopic.php?f=159&t=221879

@aradeth: well actually.... not direct support. Instead unofficial add-on which will utilize both ConverterPIX and BT, so you would have one click import from binary again :D Also I need number, because there is not enough interest then not sure if it will happen ;)

I was thinking about this myself, as an add-on to an add-on. :D I'm all for it! :P

I think most people using BT, or people like me that would like to make the switch but finding it too difficult (I have anxiety issues, so written tutorials just don't help at all lol) would be very interested in this being added to make it a one click import.

The issue is getting the word out so people know the poll exists. Perhaps it could be mentioned on the next blog post if one is coming this week. :P

I think you should

1. Raise attention and awareness to this poll on the next blog post, as user Moh1336 already said.

2. Create either an official or unofficial add-on for Blender Tools. When learning modding, I think it's crucial to learn from already existing models, otherwise one has no idea where to start.

Another solution would be for SCS to release their models in the Prism intermediate formats, but IMO this add-on would be a lot easier.

I'm not sure it's really necessary at this point, the poll is already rather one sided. :D
