UPDATE 1.1: Now should support 'ford' texture type (you'll have to add it in Wings yourself as I don't have it installed right now.)

This is a Java version of Tul's utility of the same name located here:

I only made this because there seems to be some incompatibility issue with Tul's version on my PC. The idea was his and I could never have gotten this done so quickly without his version to do some backwards engineering on, so HUGE thanks and credit to Tul for that. I hope he doesn't mind that I created this backup version--as I've said, I'm only making it available to those who need to use it for some reason.

-The bottom of the model must have a Wings3D 'hole' material
-Set materials using the existing ones in the map.wings (or obj) file (it only uses the names)
-The map should be exported as map.obj (this is the filename the Java utility looks for). The model must be *triangulated* when you export from Wings3D (note: this is different from Tul's version, and generally slower to export from Wings).
-Place all files into the same directory and double click ObjToMap.bat to kick off the jar file (you could also just double click the jar file if you have Windows set up to execute jar's with Java)
-A map.txt file should be written to which can be dropped into your module's folder

This utility works with Warband (in fact I didn't test with original M&B ).

I've included a referential Wings, obj and map.txt file.

Additional notes:
-java.exe MUST be in your computer's path to run the batch file successfully, JRE or JDK version 6
-This may not work for obj files exported from other 3d apps at all, Wings3D obj exports work but I can't say for sure about other apps.
-I included a jpg file with a screen capture showing the Wings3D settings to use (most importantly, 'swap Y and Z axis')
-Hopefully this helps someone :)

Below are the names that materials must have (again, huge thanks to Tul for this list):
ford (added v1.1, thanks to othr)
