Many people have made a tool to help in the creation of 3D games. If you have made one, please post the url to the topic here so people can find them a little easier.

Tools would be something like a model creator/convertor, world creator, etc.

Please do not post tutorials here.

Please use the graphics resource topic to post other tools not made specificly for GM (ex. Blender)

This was originally created as a tool to help with development of Missionary 2. It contains fully-functional polygon and primitive modeling capability, along with UV mapping, saving and loading of models, and exporting to gm's 3d model format. It sports a cursor-based fully 3d development interface, which facilitates easy development of models. In addition, it boasts a clean interface with many advanced options to speed development. It is also one of the most rapidly-developing model making programs on the gmc today.

<span style='font-size:22pt;line-height:100%'>SimpleModels v1.0</span>

Now it is released!!!

SCREENSHOTS quick load

It comes with an EXAMPLE (the ZIP contains modeller and example) showing its abilities (watch the screenshots!)

Now it has:
-Good easy interface
-The ability to see what you are modelling (EASY PREVIEW MODE)
-All the basic shapes can be drawn (cilynder,block,wall,floor,cone,ellipsoid)
-The ability to combine difficult models from easy(simple) shapes (buildings,cars,furnitur,planes...)
-It doesn't slow down your computer cause it uses D3D graphix!
-<span style='font-size:11pt;line-height:100%'>Game Maker v6.0</span> or higher
-And you don't need any converters to see your models (made by it) in your games!

-Just watch the example wich comes with it and you'll see!!!

Just download it worth it! :lol:

GM Modelling (v.1.0)


My modelling-program is called GM Modelling (v.1.0) and it is created in and for GameMaker.
You can use all the shapes that already exists in GameMaker (v.6.1), but this'll save you alot of time...

I strongly suggest you to read the instructions before trying out the program.

Main Fetures:
-All the shapes that already exists in GameMaker
-Surface- & Triangle-shapes
-Saving/Loading "Projects", of course
-Diffrent moving posibilities (move vertex, rotate object, change size & move the whole object)
-Zoom in/out in the editor
-Endless model-size
-Multiple object selecting
-Duplicating objects
-Diffrent "views"; Top-view (x/y), Front-view (x/z), Side-view (y/z) & Perspective-view (3D pre-view)

(Even if I use "http://..." the link doesn't work... Copy and paste into broser!)


All my files are uploaded on FileFront:

(You can find other download-links on my homepage.)

If you need any help about the program: PM me.
Also, if you have any tip for further updates contact me, because I'm planning on updating the program...

New Obj Converter!

This is more of an Obj Model animation system at this point, though it can still be used to import simply one object file for use.

Allows you to load a series of object files into GM as a DS_LIST of model indexes..

Allows you to load individual meshes from a .obj file

Allows interpolation of frames... that is creating frames between the keyframes in a model. This is the trick the pros use! (Note that frames must have identical number of faces and identical vt (texture) coordinates or the results will be um... very ugly).

Direct Link to the converter topic.

Building Constructor

I actually made this program to ease the the creation of buildings for Newcitysim
but its also really suitable for other games, since it exports objects as d3d_model.

- mouse-controlled, easy to use modeller (thanks to Yourself's 2d to 3d script)
- saving as d3d model
- 7 different standard shapes: block, cylinder, cone, wedge, arch, floor and wall
- Really easy UV-mapping
- automatic normal fixing for basic shapes, it doesn't matter which way you drag, the normals are always good.

d3d_model_load_ext is a script for importing:
  • WaveFront .obj
  • Anim8or .vtx
  • C source files .c
  • DirectX files .x
  • 3D Studio ASCII files .asc
  • GameMaker .mod

3d models to Game Maker.
d3d_model_load_ext can read all vertex, texture and normals data. It has parameters to make it easier to use the model in GM.
You can:
  • flip the normals
  • mirror the texture coordinates
  • set a scale (because d3d_transform_add_scaling(xy,ys,zs) destroys the normals)

There's also a demo available.

With this tool you can easily create, scale, move, rotate and edit bounding boxes and bounding box faces. Then you can save them to a *.gmbb file, which you can then load in Game Maker, with the included scripts. The scripts are located in the file GmBB Scripts.gml. You can see how those scripts work in the file bbox_example_GM7.gmk.

Model Creator for Game Maker (v5.0)

This program allows you to create 3D models for Game Maker. This is not the first version, it's just the first time I created a topic for it on this forum. Older versions can be found on the Dutch GMC: link.

Video toturial on YouTube: Modeling a chair
If you have no idea how to start, it is a good idea to watch this video first.

Posted Image
This is a screenshot of the main program. It shows the entire menu and two views.

Online documentation

The program is a lot easier to use than most professional modeling programs. It is meant for creating low-poly models (<1000 triangles) as Game Maker would slow down anyway if you tried to use models that are too complicated. However, it is perfectly possible to create high-poly models with it as well.

Download Model Creator v5.0 (1.75MB)

- Supports the GM model file format
- Supports File Association to open the models more quickly
- Supports triangles and all basic shapes
- Supports color, alpha and texture (with UV mapping)
- Supports lots of transformations to edit your models
- Supports undo/redo (up to 20 times!)
- Uses my calculator DLL for all user input (you can use expressions)
- Uses Max WinAPI for all popup menus

I havnt done much 3d stuff but the best tool I ever used was 'Art of Illusion'.

Its really simple to use with online tutorials. It has good texture builders and UV mapping. The modelingtools are also very powerful. Unfortunately it cant export as anything but obj. pov. and VRML but if you really want to you can build plugins for it because it runs on Java.

3d Animator latest version 1.66 for 7,8 and GameMaker: Studio, see release notes.

Morphing models feature has been improved and new feature 3d text is added.

Get 3d Animator, a tool that brings 3d animations to your 3d GameMaker game. It generates authentic GM 7, 8 and Studio code. No extension is required cool.gif. Just make an animated model and paste the generated code into your 3d object or let 3d Animator create a GM: Studio object. You can import and convert models, and repair uv maps. Fully documented manual.

Tutorials on youtube examples put into Doom Revisited,importing a running zDoom man, making a ball fall from a table, getting your animation into your game

3d Animator has, amongst others, the following features:

  • Create static or animated models using the key frame or model sequence mode.
  • Play animation forward, backwards, back and forth or looped at different speeds (in 3d Animator as in your game).
  • Build an animated model out of several types of shapes (blocks, ellipsoid, etc.) or imported models stored in the shape list.
  • Wavefront .obj models, 3d Studio Max models, Animated Quake 2 models can be imported (and exported as GameMaker models).
  • Imported models can be corrected (enlarged, rotated, etc.) and their texture uv maps can be fixed/drawn.
  • By using key frame motion shapes/imported models can be moved, rotated, bounced, enlarged, etc. in time, so parts can fall down, bounce, circle, fly, etc.
  • Imported models can be morphed and merged.
  • Each shape can have a texture and texture maps of imported models can be fixed/drawn by using the uv mapper.
  • Keyframes (which hold the properties like position, angle, rotation of a shape) can be added, moved and deleted.
  • All the changes you made can be undone and redone if necessary and
  • if 3d Animator or your PC crashes you can go back to your very last made change.
  • GameMaker code can be generated for your static model for draw & create event and
  • code for your animated model for create, step and draw event.




click here for more screenshots


release notes version 1.66:

  • added: add a text as 3d text model
  • manual: 3d text explained (features: alignment, scale, spacing, depth, slanting, elevation effect)
  • morphing improved: 2 morphing types can be used, matching neighboring triangles is especially for models with different sizes
  • morphing improved: number of morphed models (steps/frames) can be given
  • added: HelloWorld3dmorph.3da file is an example of morphing (by matching neighboring triangles)
  • merging improved: texture uv map of merged model can be divided into 2 separate parts for the 2 models (note: texture has to be adapted)
  • added: slanting imported models
  • added: free rotation of imported models
  • added: properties matrix to show properties of all shapes for each keyframe (hotkey enter)
  • added: scrollbar for easy scrolling through shapes
  • added: zoom bar and zoom hotkeys for easy zooming (besides zooming by mouse wheel)
  • added: export a model as Wavefront .obj
  • added: option to show number of vertices of an imported model (gives an indication of memory use and load/draw speed)

  • added: a light color can be chosen for the lighting
  • added: window can be resized by dragging a window border
  • added: skybox (hotkey F7) to see your model in a different light
  • added: 3d Animator project can be saved as xml file

  • changed: some visual and textual improvements
  • improved: menu item 'reset view to default' resets more of design window view
  • improved: rgb values shown beside color rectangle in properties window

  • added in uv mapper: scale all uv coordinates
  • added in uv mapper: select all nodes
  • changed in uv mapper: dragging nodes horizontal/vertical left and right shift (instead of shift and control)
  • changed in uv mapper: minor changes to menu
  • corrected: at undo or redo no shape is selected
  • corrected: incorrect centering of vertices of imported model
  • corrected: mirror shape x and y was reversed
  • corrected: top/bottom normal for 3d Studio max imported model
  • corrected: word axe to axis (what was I thinking?)
  • corrected: example 3da file bounceoftable. It would crash 3d Animator on opening

  • bug corrected: crash in model sequencing mode if shapelist is empty (division by zero)
  • minor problem on renaming shape: undo/redo didn't work properly
  • minor problem on mirroring model vertices: selecting axis mirror along corrected
  • minor problem on empty 2d text shape: generated draw code failed due to division by zero
  • minor problem on deleting a shape: improved scrolling
  • minor problem on an invisible shape: generated code for a static model didn't reflect it

Older release notes on website


I mentioned earlier I made this tool to make animations of breaking furniture and other

stuff for my game Doom Revisited. I wanted the player to be able to
smash up things. I find a 3d game without animations so static. Try out
this new tool and use your imagination to come up with some good
animations which enrichen your 3d game. 3d Animator has an extensive manual including a walkthrough tutorial for making your first animation.

Good luck and let my know what you think of it

I\'ll soon Publish an exemple with script to load the animation.

For now check this out.

I hope You\'ll like it.

Very imprtant : Sorry, while I was making the exempl, i found a mistake in the exporting and the importing of the animaiton.
so now, if you want to use it again, then redownload it.

A model editor with an easy to use graphical interface and supports shapes and primitives, along with texture UVs, vertex color/alpha and more.
The current version can convert OBJ model files to Game Maker model files.

This tool lets you place objects in 3d space. it's a 3d level designer. it writes gml code which you can paste into a room's creation code for execution. it's way better for making 3d levels instead of game maker's built in 2d level designer.

Has anyone here actually used World Creator before.

Funny it got mentioned here as I have been looking at it for a while (the 2.5+ version). I wasn't sure the site just seems a little...hmm. It is also very rarely mentioned (altho saying that I figured it might not be due to the isometric, 2d era mainstream wise has died.

I am not sure whether I should download it or not. Can anyone recommend its good points to me and tell me what experiences they've had using it? Also what sort of content did they create on it?
