Default Equipment Model Extraction for 3D printing

I am trying to pull some equipment files out and convert them to .obj and .stl for 3D printing.

I have had limited success with troll and gnoll models and wanted to try something a bit easier.

I am looking for model - IT10003. I believe it is a Luclin Mallet, but not 100% sure.

I found an old set of files that appear to have been from a team trying to convert EQ stuff into Unity. Seems like that project has halted...

If anyone can point me to where I can find this file - I would greatly appreciate it.

Just before I start actually looking you're talking about this one, correct?

Yes sir - That is the one. Hoping I can get it with the skins, so I have the face on it. But anything will help.

Those are most of the weapons loading right there from my globalload.txt (some of them are just global files that contain more than just weapohs though).

I would guess its in one of the global equips as its a luclin model but ya never know. I'm sure there's someone who would be able to find it easier than I but this list should at least get you started.

It's gonna be lower down the list than higher if that makes sense.

Code:
1,1,TFFFE,Global_obj,Loading Character Equipment Files
1,1,TFTFE,GEquip,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,GEquip8,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,GEquip2,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFU,grass,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,GEquip5,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,GEquip4,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,GEquip3,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,loyequip,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,ldonequip,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,gatesequip,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,omensequip.eqg,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,donequip.eqg,Loading Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,dodequip.eqg,Loading DoD Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,porequip.eqg,Loading PoR Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,tssequip.eqg,Loading TSS Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,tbsequip.eqg,Loading TBS Character Equipment Files
2,0,TFFFE,sofequip.eqg,Loading SOF Character Equipment Files

Thank you! The program I am currently using is EQG Weapon Model Importer. It only sees .eqg files. So with most of these being .s3d extensions - I am guessing that is why I cannot find it...

I will have to try and work through that. Thank you again!

Ah I see.. you might get a better answer on the Discord I'm sure there's people that know much more than me about breaking down the texture files.

If you actually end up 3D printing it i'd love to see the results though.

There is a model viewer / exporter called Kaiyodo's Model Viewer
Which deals with s3d files, it is old, but may work for your purpose, as it does export to .obj files
Found a archive link to it here Link here

Good look, keep us posted

This is in gequip3.s3d. Should be in your EQ directory.

I had to have a play with this, just for fun
( never done 3D modeling and no experience with blender, so total newb at this, so is not perfect and probably a few errors )

But i think it came out ok



NB
With the s3d viewer, you can export the textures with the save s3d files button
Just need to map them to the surfaces manually

Hope you like

Here is updated version, tried to make a little more like the in game one
