Re: Another Gmax question

Thanks, that's very useful. At this stage, bottom line, if I base my work on a default file, I'm safe.

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: Mother Russia

Andrey Anta did a lot of Russian sceneries for FS9, they're all available on Flightsim.com.

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?

Re: Another Gmax question

Thanks John, that's very helpful, not least as I now see that I was getting a little ahead of myself, because I don't have all my textures mapped yet. I was also trying to get the axis of rotation "all in one go". Now I see there is an iteration to get the part positioned correctly in all axes at ea...

Another Gmax question

I'm making some progress, but I've stumbled again. I have made some wing flaps, which was a first for me, and one reason I started with Gmax, as I could never get on with Boolean operations in FSDS. That went fine, but animating a flap is not yet working properly. Whatever I do to the pivot axis, wi...

Re: Mirroring parts in Gmax

Yes, I've been able to do some tidying up. Most times I create a part, I'm wrong about the number of sections needed, so welding and slicing practice started early!

Re: Mirroring parts in Gmax

Thanks John; I've got there, learning something else in the process. The mirrored part was disappearing, but then I realized your picture just showed Editable Poly under the modifier list, whereas mine still included the Mirror modifier. I didn't realize I had to collapse the stack; there's a first ...

Mirroring parts in Gmax

I've made a New Years resolution of sorts to learn enough about Gmax to actually build something, and I'm slowly making some progress now, albeit with a very long way to go. I'm edging forward on a project, and there are several parts that I need to mirror from left to right. I've already learned no...

Re: FS9 troubleshooting with Procmon

Mystifying update: Fired up FS9 this afternoon and it was fine, but I had done nothing at all. Hard to believe there's not still an issue lurking, though.

Re: FS9 troubleshooting with Procmon

Hi Hartwig, Thanks for the quick feedback. You might be right about the x86 folder, although my FS9 has been in there all along and it's been okay until today. I've had Windows 10 for a while now (3 years or so), and it's been fine, even through numerous updates. I tried admin rights, but sadly it m...

FS9 troubleshooting with Procmon

After a long period of trouble free FS9 operation, I had a new problem: the sim would load but then hang when I got to the main menu page, either with the aircraft preview screen blacked out, or, if that was okay, the sim would hang when I then made any menu selection. I remembered reading about Pro...

Canadair CL-215 Hellenic Air Force

I have a confession to make: when I put together the flightplans for this upload, I had a senior moment and did not realize that I was using part of the plans from the MAIW Elefsis transports package; obviously I would not have done this had I been aware. I had forgotten that the CL-215 was included...
