3DSimED & TrkMaker
3DSimEd is a visual tool allowing you to import data from many different formats of racing simulators including F1-2011, F1-2010, NFS Shift, DIRT, GRID, Race 07, GTR Evolution, STCC The Game, GTR2, rFactor, GTL, GTR, Papyrus Nascar 2003 & Grand Prix Legends (GPL), Formula 1 2002 (F1 2002), Formula 1 Career Challenge (F1 CC), Nascar SimRacing, Race Driver Grid, TOCA Race Driver, Nascar Heat, Viper Racing and many other racing simulator formats. A range of simple editing tools are available to allow you to modify data. Your models can then be saved to Race 07, GTR Evolution, GTR2, rFactor, GTL, N2003, GTR, Nascar Heat, Viper Racing and F1CC/F1-2002 formats.
Collada support allows export and import to many 3D Applications including Blender (open source, free download at blender.org) and 3DS Max, there is also SKP export and import for the powerful 3D Design application Google ) SketchUp (at present available as a free download).
3DSimEd also allows you to work with .3DS files giving a way for you to work with many 3D modelling applications including 3DSMax.
TrkMaker allows you to create and edit tracks for various simulator formats using a common database. The database describes the segments and surfaces that define the track. This data can then be exported to GTR2, GTL, rFactor, GTR, Papyrus N2003, F1CC, or .3DS format. The initial database can be created from a GPL .TRK or N2003 .PTF giving you a way, for example, to start with a GPL track and build N2003 and other format tracks in a matter of hours.
Please note that 3DSimED is designed to help track authors to create their tracks in the format they choose. If you are working on an existing track, you should ensure you have the permission of the author.
