MDL File Extension Description
three dimensional objects found in the Half-Life video game use The MDL file extension. Half-Life is a first person shooter game. Players will take on the character of Dr. Gordon Freeman and try to fight to survive. Files with the .mdl file extension are used to store 3-D objects that are used by the game. Files with the .mdl file extensions contain different 3D views, textures and polygons. These files are eventually compiled to a file with the VTX file extension. Aside from the Half-Life game itself, objects with the .mdl file extension can also be opened by the Half-Life Model Viewer and MilkShape 3D.
Using Rational Rose programs from IBM can also create files with the .mdl file extension. The programs use the Unified Modeling Language to design and create objects. The MDL file extension is the default used by models and diagrams created by the program. Files with the .mdl file extension often contain business models.
Reference files for the Flight Simulator programs from the Microsoft Corporation also use the .mdl file extension. These programs are a series of games where players can experience simulated flight. Files with the MDL file extension are used to contain 3-D representations of planes. These files are used by the games to store customized or pre-loaded airplane models.
The Simulink program from the MathWorks Company also uses the .mdl file extension. The MDL file extension is used to store simulations of models. These files often store diagrams and properties of blocks created with the program. The program creates designs by using models.
Prodatron?s DigiTrakker program also uses the .mdl file extension. The application is used to create music from samples of instruments and voices. It saves audio files with the default file extension .mdl. Other programs can open files with the MDL file extension that are created by DigiTrakker.
The MDL file extension is also used by the Symbian operating system. Symbian is used by a number of handheld devices, particularly mobile phones. Files with the MDL file extension are used to store MIME. These are called libraries and they help the operating system identify the formats of files uploaded in the memory.
The Mighty Draw application for DOS also uses the MDL file extension to store its library. The program is used to create images. It uses the library to refer to pre-set objects and tools that can be used.
Another program using the .mdl file extension is MapShots. This application records information to manage and monitor crops. The data input by the user is gathered in a file with the MDL file extension.
