Missing P3D option
Hi, this seems like a great addon, but there is no P3D option in my File->Import/Export menus.
I have placed the files (io_export_ofp_p3d.py, io_import_ofp_p3d.py and the folder ofp containing __init__.py, mlod.py and resolutions.py) in Blender Foundation\Blender\2.66\scripts\addons.
I did notice that my __init__.py folder is empty, is that a problem? Any ideas?
In Blender click on File then on User Preferences
In the Addon panel , select Import/Export
Then scroll down until you see the entries, and enable them
Note : if you want the addon to stay enabled everytime you launch Blender, after enabling the addon, on the bottom of the User Preferences window click on "Save User Settings"
Thanks very much Sanctuary it shows up now.
I've found after opening the p3d that my model ends up facing the wrong way. I've tried moving it around in blender first, but it still faces the wrong way. It is fairly easy to correct in oxygen, but I wondered if you knew why it was happening and if I can stop it?

Are you sure it faces the wrong way? When you import a P3D and export it again, it should have the same orientation as it had before.

Yeah, the P3D MLOD-format for OFP and Arma is a little bit different. I have not tested the MLOD-reader code with the latest P3Ds, so it would be nice to hear what error message appears (after applying the read_P3DM-patch).

Although having got an upside down model into oxygen I decided to try importing the P3D back into blender that was originally a .blend file.. I hope you understand..

EDIT: P.S. I have applied the read_P3DM patch.
P.P.S I tried importing a BIS sample model to blender and that isn't working either.

Ok, thanks. I'll look into the P3DM-code; seems I missed a few things when cleaning and refactoring.
