Modeller looking for some help

Hello, I'm not part of the skywind or skyblivion projects here but I do follow the projects closely and am an aspiring mesh maker. I am currently working on a project to recreate Stros M'kai. I work with blender but have since been unable to get my meshes into NifSkop. I triangulate them and I export them as .obj but whenever I try to Import into Nifskope the mesh is grey and undetailed. Can anyone tell me what I have to do to get this working, hopefully once my current project is finished I can try helping out with Skywind.

I believe there is a plugin

I believe there is a plugin for one of the Blender versions that exports your project into a nif file.  I haven't used it, since I mainly use 3ds max to make nif files.

NifSkope doesn't read obj files properly, sadly.  So I would highly recommend getting the student version of 3ds just to export to nif, and then open it up easily, and properly in Nifskope.  :)

Ok thank you for the advice, I have 3ds on my computer but the problem is I've made somewhere around 50 meshes in blender that I now need to get out. Ill have a look for the plugin.
