Hey guys. I recently released new Blender tool for gamedev folks called Eksporteur.

Ekspørteur is a tool for game developers who need a way to manage assets and LODs in one scene and export them efficiently.

It keeps track and organize exports by grouping scene objects in Assets and their LODs.

You can export LODs one by one or all at once for each asset.

    Does this plugin support full game scenes? I use Blender 2.8 as my level design tool, as well as my lightmap baking tool. I export my levels in a single mesh, but with groups, so I can refer to them in my engine code in order to add game logic and culling. I use this in a FPS title, so levels tend to get big.

    A plugin like this would save me TONS of time. Right now exporting levels is a huge pain in the ass.

    Yeah why not? This plugin uses standard fbx exporter, it's more of a convenient wrapper of the whole exporting process. So I guess you can use it, though it's more suited for asset creation. Can you describe what these groups exactly are? You export everything as a single fbx file right?

    Since I do everything manually, the groups tend to be flexible. I have separate assets, linked to the scene, for a laptop, desk lamp, keyboard, table, etc, but I group them together with the table as "office_table".

    This is my current process in terms of baking: https://www.nothing-is-3d.com/article27/from-blender-to-babylonjs

    Hi @Ubuska 
    wanted to let you know that you're current addon setup doesn't properly import its references

    This is the very first position where it fails:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "L:\portableApps\_art\3d\blender\blender-2.80-windows64\2.80\scripts\modules\addon_utils.py", line 351, in enable
        mod = __import__(module_name)
      File "L:\portableApps\_art\3d\blender\blender-2.80-windows64\2.80\scripts\addons\Eksporteur\__init__.py", line 31, in <module>
        importlib.reload(sys.modules[currentModuleFullName])
      File "L:\portableApps\_art\3d\blender\blender-2.80-windows64\2.80\python\lib\importlib\__init__.py", line 169, in reload
        _bootstrap._exec(spec, module)
      File "L:\portableApps\_art\3d\blender\blender-2.80-windows64\2.80\scripts\addons\Eksporteur\assets\assets.py", line 3, in <module>
        import assets.generic_functions as g
    ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'assets'


    Have you tested your addon with blender's intern python distribution?
