A suggestion that many would agree with
 
Its very,very,very,very,very, and very simple. Just allow Alice to use other forms of 3D models, maybe popular ones like.3ds and .MAX. Please,please, please.:)

Yes.

DO EET.

It would be erroneous to make direct support, because the entire alice rendering system would have to be rewritten. Instead, ALice would have to convert the models into a format it knows - a2c or obj. This would be similar to its current support for ase files. I wish to ammend the proposition:

Alice should be able to import and convert other file types.

[SIZE="2"]I agree that it'd be a useful thing, but there are many things which would have to be resolved, and with which it'd be better to achieve results with manually.

For one thing, pivot points. Almost guaranteed not to be in the right place.
Things like textures can also be difficult to handle, and just the individual variances that can occur between objects.

I for one think there'd be too many issues that'd arise, and it'd be better just to leave it as is instead of spend the effort to attempt something that might invariably fail.

There's probably more to it in trying to implement such a thing.

Sorry if I'm being too pessimistic.[/SIZE]
