Im having trouble following the Jmonkey textbook instructions

My textbook’s code says
“The provided assets directory contains the Models/HoverTank/Tank.j3o model.”

But I don’t see where this “provided assets directory” is, and so it then instructs,
“Copy Tank.j3o and its four textures into a new assets/Models/HoverTank/ directory in your project.”

So I’m lost at this point, and when I try loading Models/HoverTank/Tank.j3o, I get an error that the file doesn’t exist.

Am I doing something wrong here? How do I access Hovertank?

EDIT: I should also note that the book is jMonkeyEngine 3.0 Beginner’s Guide, and the instructions are on page 139.


download the “Code files” of this book at Packtpub.

In the zip file there is a folder called “6464OS_05_code” then there is the Tank.j3o

Oh, thank you very much.

I had already downloaded the code files, but I didn’t realize they had more than just code.

If you are in the EU so I could offer you the jMonkeyEngine 3.0 Cookbook (looks like brand new) for a nice price.

If you are interested into it so just tell me.
