Hi BNG.
I would say, yes, it is possible. Though, it's important
to understand what the script is doing.
It is reading the data in the modeller format (Blender, or trueSpace),
then writing it to the XSI format, to file. So, you have to take a
'divide and conquer' approach, in which you write the code as
separate tasks.
You want to do this for the Model side of truespace, correct? If so,
the 7.61 SDK won't apply, I don't believe. You need the earlier versions
of the SDK, for 6.6. There may be sample scripts in the 6.6 era SDK
for this: reading data for a 6.6 object, and writing to file.

DesignDevil had been writing some Model side plugins up til recently.
Maybe we can get in touch with him, for help with this.

Here's a link on the internet archives to plugin and scripting info for model side.

The tsx6.6 sdk is for model side c plugins and the caligari tsxpython is for .... you guessed it python.

Awesome, thanks to both of you help me in the right direction I've already gotten the 7.61 SDK and will get the TS 6 SDK as well. I'm pretty sure I can eventually figure something doable out as I start putting all the pieces together and do a bit of improvising. Man o man do I love the flexibility of Truespace old and new. I'll keep everyone advised as I make progress one way or the other. BNG.
