Hmm, I'm really not into modding, but I know where the wiki page on team color is, does this help? I also remember that titi was discussing his lack of happiness about a, once again, modified Blender API in current versions and that he needed to fix the exporter - which I think he said he succeeded in recently.

That's already old and wrong for the newest exporter. Better use this page:
https://docs.megaglest.org/G3D_support#Model_preparation

You probably forgot to check team color in the G3D poperties panel. You might wanna update your exporter beforehand, just to make sure you have the newest one (should show up in blender as version 0.5.2).

I also remember that titi was discussing his lack of happiness about a, once again, modified Blender API in current versions and that he needed to fix the exporter - which I think he said he succeeded in recently.
This was about the importer, not the exporter.

Oops, thanks for pointing that out. I updated the team colour page so it's correct.

Nope. If we ever adopt another model format, it may be possible, but G3D models don't save bones, so there's no plausible way (yet, anyway) to import an animation. Shape keys are imported, but not sure if they have any real use.

Always keep the blend files of your models!

Deleting a mesh can be easily done with g3dhack.

No need to remodel.

One can somehow use shape keys for animation, but i don't know how. If someone could tell me how, i can probably add it to the importer and we can re-export imported animations. Though, you can't easily edit imported animations 'cause you won't get bones.

I think it's the exporter that would need modifying. Previously, the importer would import shape keys (the current version does not). When you checked each frame in Blender, the model would appear to have retained its animation, however, when exported, the model would always be exported as the first frame only (in other words, the shape keys were ignored by the exporter). Granted, shape keys would be a royal pain to modify (if possible), but if the shape keys could be exported (and thus would have to be imported again), small changes like swapping a weapon would be possible by simply animating just the weapon.

So I think the first question that would have to be answered is: can shape keys be exported (or more accurately, can the exporter be tweaked to export shape keys?).

Yes, it should work. Already thought about this before, but dismissed it because it feels so hacky. When i find some time i might give it a go.
