Re: Gmax Material Navigator

It seems it was the ini file, but which? Turns out I had two, one in the Gmax root folder, which included editor parameters, and one the gamepacks/FS2004 folder. I backed up both, and now the Navigator is working.

Gmax Material Navigator

I cannot open the Gmax material navigator, either from the top menu, using the M key, or from the materials editor. I have seen some discussion of this on other sites, but without a clear or satisfactory solution. Has anyone here experienced this problem? I am using Windows 10, but I have had that o...

Re: Sikorsky S-92 Helicopters

When I looked in TTools, all the waypoints were there, but none of the airports. I added the latter manually and all was okay. A plus, then for AIFP if it addresses that issue.

Re: Most wanted AI poll

Okay Sean, that clinches it! LOD's are a first for me, but with further guidance offered from John I'll give it a go. I'm not very quick, though..

LODs for your model Jon - you may only need 3 or 4, should take only an hour or two. I can show you how to do that in Gmax when you are ready.

Re: Most wanted AI poll

Steve, The upgraded Pakistani Super Mushshak is externally pretty much identical as far as I can see, although it can be armed, and I haven't looked for reference photos for that. The Danish ones I've done have a prominent dorsal aerial, which I would remove anyway for possible Norwegian examples I ...

Re: Most wanted AI poll

Thanks Martin!

It's FS9. It's where most of my interest still is, but also the simplest place from which to start. I've read a little about FSX/P3D conversion, but I've not tried any of that.

By the way, if memory serves, you were once interested in the Noratlas as an AI subject?

Re: Most wanted AI poll

There's someone on the forum that's been building the MFI-17 as a Gmax learning experience. I know that because i have been helping him get there, but I'll let him say more when and if he is ready to do so. John With John's help, I have a serviceable MFI-17. As it's my first attempt, it has numerou...

Re: Thoughts on the next project

I think it's well worth pursuing, there are quite a few military, government and civilian operators around the world, including a number servicing the oil industry. Also, I for one will be grateful for the helicopter itself, whether or not many sceneries are produced. Maybe the community can be insp...

Re: Another Gmax question

Thanks John, I'll try that tomorrow and report back All is well. In truth, I'd got myself in a tangle, but a clean SDK re-install has got me there, and I now have a model to test and in due course to paint. A new question: clearly I've borrowed an FDE, and topically this has been alluded to in anot...

Re: Another Gmax question

Still no luck. The gamepacks folder in Gmax was empty (!), so I added FS2004/plugins folders and put MakeMDL in there and configured the path from Gmax, but it's still not seeing it. When I first copied MakeMDL across, it set itself to 'read only', but I corrected that and still Gmax doesn't see it....

Re: Another Gmax question

Hi John, I'm getting there, I just have one more little snag. The good news is I've got my Gmax model to a point where I want to export it to test in FS9, but I don't get the option to export as an MDL file, just MD3 or 3DS. I remembered the configure paths from FSDS, so I tried to do the same in Gm...

Re: Military Pageant Shuttleworth

Brilliant photos it would nice to have some of these built for AI like the Beaver, Anson and Scout
Mike Cronin did a Beaver, search for that on Flightsim.com. I could fancy doing an Anson if I ever get up to speed on Gmax!

Re: MAIW JAI Grumman OV-1 Mohawk Conversion Support

I've been unable to find the existing unconverted Mohawk; I've also struggled with the FS9 Neptune and Dauphin. I know I should move on, but in the meantime, where are these old models to be found?
