DAoC Web NIF Viewer

For a while I’ve wanted to display DAoC models in a web browser, inspired by Wowhead’s Item Viewer, I spent a few weeks looking at this problem and tried various solutions, the one that worked is the following.

This is still a work in progress, only yesterday did I found out how to add textures to the models.

Using the Webgl Model Viewer from https://bitbucket.org/doeke/webgl-model-viewer I had to do the following:

  1. Convert the .nif file to .obj using NifSkope
  2. Convert the .dds texture to .jpg using Image Converter Plus
  3. Edit the .mtl files to point to the .jpg instead of the .dds and change the path too
  4. Upload all these to the website
Live Examples
You need a WebGL compatible browser e.g. Chrome/Firefox
