View Full Version : Odd FS9 MDL won't load
08 Mar 2010, 18:31
The default towers in FS9 are in the Generic.bgl MCX will load the Generic.bgl, but the tower ( Generic83 604b317e4a34393816dc0ab50faf4b32 ) does not show.

You are aware that the top tip of the tower is at 0 elevation, and you must raise it above the ground to get it to show?

This is a control tower, not an antenna. It is at AGL.

Ah, a *control* tower. :)
I need to check in a little more detail, but I think it is the LOD structure of this MDL that confuses ModelConverterX. Conditions are not supported yet and it seems it is displaying an empty LOD here. But I'll try to check in more detail.
I found it, it was a bug in the reader. It seems this object has more TransformEnd than Transform_Mat commands, which confused the reader. It will be fixed in the next development release.

I'm glad you found the bug. :)
I was interested in the MDL because I wanted to see how the Aces handled semi-transparency in FS9.
