[quote="Luchs";p="110838"]Okay, so I'm confused on what to do still...I keep missing something or keep doing something wrong.
Could you explain to me the whole process from exporting the map (which folder to export it to, geometry, city, etc.?) all the way to actually playing the map? The tutorial I have by Maxoff is helpful but it's a little vague at this point.
Thanks.

Carking1996, No I don't believe I am importing it correctly. I don't know which file in MM2CT to import it to. Could you help me through this process?

You need to export as the 3ds file. The tutorial directly tells you.

Hello, friend! I finally got the city to work and start up in Midtown madness 2 after finally figuring everything out! :dance:
However, the thing is that when I load the city it automatically starts to a black/blank screen. You are able to hear the music and honk the horn and go to dashboard and shift from park to drive to reverse. With my experience with Midtown Madness 2, this means that you are outside of the boundaries of the map. Does this mean that I should scale the map up a large amount or does it perhaps mean I need to alter something using MM2CT such as a spawn position or invisible map boundaries (if that's even possible).
Thanks a million, man!

Okay so, make sure your city is surrounding the 0,0,0 axis in blender (make sure it's by the grid and those lines). Also, your city like I said, is probably much too small, too! Scale it up! Press A to select everything, then press S to scale and move the mouse.

Okay, I scaled the map up and it runs and I can drive around on this large plain that I made. However, every time I take a step forward in this project, more confusion arises.  The map I made for some reason has sidewalks and roads around the edges and in some other parts. (picture as attachment) There's also some slight elevation in some areas. This leads me to wonder if this is even my map at all. Is this a default map, perhaps? The map looks the same shape and size but it has odd features which I didn't (or even know how to) put in.

2nd. I can't seem to be able to view my map on MM2CT. I try to Open the PSDL but nothing shows up, it just angles the coordinate box differently as if something has been shown, but there's nothing there. I also clicked Generate Map For City and selected the PSDL file for the map but it tells me, "List Index out of Bounds (0)" I don't even know what that means or if these are the right ways to view your city in MM2CT...so that's another thing I need help with. :fight:
Thanks again!

Okay, so you are doing something very wrong. Do you have a Skype or Discord account that I can personally talk with you and help you through the process on?

Yes, that would be very helpful. I have a Discord, I'll send you my name in a message.
