    Gday all, just wanted to show a shot of my Australian Windmil with watertank that has animated vanes.
    Taken about 10 days to get to grips with Gmax sofar after converting over from FSDS.

    Looks cool :).

    Actually, this week I have been animating my typical Dutch windmill as well. The only thing left to do is to rotate it into the wind.

    Hi Jeff,

    Yes, but I am testing a way where you just tweak the source code a bit to get this effect. But as I wrote I am still testing it, so not sure if it will work 100% correct.

    JeffS, it looks great! May I ask You, did You make it from scratch in gmax or did You put the FSDS2 file through some converter to get in GMAX?

    Best regards,

    Thanks Everyone !

    Goran, i made it from scratch and even worked out how to array all by my self haha.

    I now use the array function for most of the objects im creating for a scenery for a new release in 2005 for australian simulations.

    Ladders, Step Ladders, Windmills.

    I think FSDS was a help tho with getting to grips with 3D modelling and my background as a builder using Autocad yrs ago wich enabled me to grasp the real world concept of modelling.

    Im allso using custom made textures from photos with a few hand paints.

    It has taken over 3 yrs tho to get this far overall but its been fun learning thanks to you, Arno, Dick , Luis and many others.

    best rgds Jeff
