Hi all,
This is really starting to annoy me. Almost every time I have tried to import a sketchup model into Modders workshop, it jut shuts down, with no message or warning. If people want, I can attach a video to show this problem physically going on.
Since I am new to modding, I first tried importing Sketchup models from Google Warehpuse, just to get the hang of improting etc. but i couldn't get them into M/Workshop, as this problem would occur. It has started happening on and off, even with my own Mods now. I would really appriciate any help.
Thanks,
Charlie

Which version of Sketchup is the model saved as? could be too new a version.
I can't remember which version we go up to, is it 5 or 6?

Version 6, have to make sure you save it as version 6.

Also, some sketchup models in their original form can be way too complex to import into MS, sometimes you gotta work on them a bit to reduce polys etc.

if you are using higher than sk6, you will need to use the save as feature in sketchup, and in the dropdown menu select sk6, or the MS will crash with no warning

Hi,
I'm saving the files as S/UP 6 yes. Oddly enough, the problem seems to have fixed itself the moment I post about it (it is always the way isn't it?!) but if it happens again, I'll post another reply. Thanks guys smile.gif

SketchUp has a bit of a quirk. If you are using a higher version than SU6 and choose "Save As" to save as version 6 it works fine. But if you then happen to press "Save" for any reason it will overwrite the SU6 version with the higher one.

Right, I'll keep that in mind. I think that might be the issue actually. Thanks smile.gif
