a full and free "MilkShape3D" replacement, to model/convert MS3D models with the free open source 3D Modeler "Blender"

follow, to get additional information:
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/MilkShape3D_MS3D

to enable, go to:
File -> User Preferences -> Addons -> Community -> Import-Export
and enable "Import-Export: MilkShape3D MS3D format (.ms3d)"

EDIT: the add-on is included in the official blender release, so you don't have to install the add-on by hand:
follow, to get the add on:
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/MilkShape3D_MS3D

to enable, go to:
File -> User Preferences -> Addons -> Testing -> Import-Export
and enable "Import-Export: MilkShape3D MS3D format (.ms3d)"

:idea: QUICK TIP:
if you download an actual dev-build of Blender, you will get automatically the newest version of that add-on.

hello,

one year ago, i was written a primitive add-on for blender to import/export milkshape models.
but some month later the add-on was broken because of changes in blender.
it took more than a half year to found enough time to fix and improve the add-on.

now, i am proud to announce my brand new rewritten ms3d importer/exporter for blender 2.63+.
with version 0.5.x the add-on is able to import and export ms3d files again.
it is way faster than the old one
AND, now it can handle animations ... !

an new updated video tutorial is coming soon...

sorry that it took such very long time ...
and thank you for your patience.

ps.: many things are changed, in contrast to the old add-on, watch out to the new MS3D-panels in blender, only these will be respected by the exporter!

links:
wiki-page, with the add-on as .zip-file
http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Extensions:2.6/Py/Scripts/Import-Export/MilkShape3D_MS3D

daily-build of blender (dev-build r52285+) does have that add-on included (you have to enable "Testing" in the add-on preferences to see the ms3d add-on)

hello, i am proud to tell you, that from this day on, my MilkShape3D add-on is included in the blender release. that means, you don't need to download my add-on separately.

so, go and download the newest blender version, and have fun... :mrgreen:
