Hi to All Mafia Creators and Members.
Guys, I have a Problem:
I'm making my Counter-Strike 1.6 Map.
But I need some Old Car Models for that. My problem is that mafia 1 has the best old car models and it let me to Use this game's Car Models in My Maps.
But GoldSource Engine Doesn't Support LS3D .4ds files. it supports .mdl files.
this is a very big problem for me. I need to Convert 4ds to GoldSource .mdl files.
Would you help me pls guys? it is very important.
(if it's hard to convert, Can you introduce me some old car models pls?)
(I don't Want to Work with 3ds max and 4ds plugin because my system don't support them.)

pls someone answers. i really love this game. if the only way to convert is 3ds Max 'n' 4ds Plugin, Would you do it yourself and then Upload the car models in goldsource .mdl files in a website pls? thx

Assuming you know which tool to use for exporting .mdl files to GS, the workflow would be this:
1.Import .4ds file from Mafia into Zmodeler 1.7b
2.Export the model from Zmodeler to .3ds, preferably within the same folder as the textures to keep those associated to the model.
3.Import the .3ds file within the modelling tool that you use for converting models to Goldsource. From there you can modify it and export it as you see fit.

You may need to remove a lot of dummy objects that serve no visual purpose but may appear when converted to a different file format. These are all a bunch of boxes.
