Pandemic have always used xsi, as you can (probably can't) see in Battlezone2. I never did model for Battlezone2, cuz I never found the right importer and exporter.

I've heard the exporter\importer is in the mod tools, yet I never found it...

Could you link me up? I would like to try it, maybe get in touch with Pandemic's modelling conventions. I visited their website, and for artist they say XSI expertise is a plus :P.

Link to what? I have no idea where the tools are, if they even exist. I only heard of them in some Battlezone2 modeling tutorial.

Hehe, you're right. BZ2 uses the .xsi files directly, which I guess is stupid even if you're not going to have animations on it, since ASCII files are much bigger than binaries.
Maybe for BZ2 you only need a mesh with texture data on the .xsi, so it's not such a big deal. But I don't think Pandemic is gonna use ASCII .xsi files for SWB. I guess I'll have to wait to find out.

Most the xsi there are somewhere between 150 and 200 KB, probably because they don't so many polys. Also, each has it's own animation. Though not all vehicles have animation.

Although I don't see SWB models using as many polygons as UT2004 or the coming HL2, I think they're gonna be big enough to not consider using ASCII files. Also if you count the number of animations per character and vehicle, is not a good deal to keep the model's files as ASCII. I'm pretty sure they've developed some sort of skeletal animation already.
Man, I'm very anxious to see what can we create with it.

I added the Star Wars BattleFront .msh loader module to the 3D Object Converter and I uploaded the latest developer package (non beta) to my web page.

You can download it using the following link:
http://web.t-online.hu/karpo/3dc32390x_dev_20070217.zip

I converted any original .msh files into .Wavefront's .obj format.

Wow, the PC version is big enough - it's great to see people making the game even bigger!

Arrow XSI

I downloaded a free version of Softimage XSI 4.2 Mod Tool here:
http://www.softimage.com/downloads/
But it needs a license key. I got one from Softimage, but the program won't accept it.
That means I can't save or export anything.
I also tried to load Pandemics .xsiaddon, but I couldn't get anything to work.
I use Gmax (the gutted, but free version of 3ds Max), so I don't know anything about Softimage or how to use it. Does anyone know how to make this free mod tool work? Its SO close to working.

Do people look at these threads anymore? A lot of the posts are at least a year old.
