    FSX Perth International Airport YPPH

    After taking way too long of a break I've finally decided to restart Perth :) Here's a small preview of the Terminal 1 Domestic Pier which Virgin Australia use which opened late last year. Also visible in the back is the airports control tower. Also expect a ground poly preview in the next few days.

    3ds Max Speed Modelling Videos

    Thanks, the 777 took just under 2 hours and the Concorde was also just under 2 hours. Maybe I'll make those videos one day if I get experienced enough :) Thanks for an honest opinion, might upload the 787 and that'll be it. Don't seem to do great for views so I think you're right.

    Ground poly appears black

    Hey everyone, Currently doing some modelling work after a long break, I've created a ground poly in 3DS max. When applying textures to the object (.bmp files 24 bit) they appeared black until I added a UV Map modifier over it (never happened to me before). I then exported it as a .x file and...

    3ds Max Speed Modelling Videos

    Hey everyone, I've been working on modelling some aircraft. So far I've made a Boeing 777-300(ER), 787-9 (not uploaded yet) and the Concorde. Enjoy :)

    Background Image is not an image file

    I'm currently trying to import an image into ADE to use as the background guide for my airport. However when I open the image I get the following error: This file C:\file location\YBSU.jpg is not an image file. Please check the file details and try again I have tried resaving the image on...

    FSX Perth International Airport YPPH

    I haven't been able to do any work on it as I've been inundated with school work and have been working on other projects. However some good news, I'm starting work on this again very very soon. :)

    FSX Airport not lining up in sim

    The background used coordinates from my SBuilderX image (it is the same image at lower resolution) and the image in FSX is the same from SBuilderX using the same coordinates.

    FSX Airport not lining up in sim

    Hi everyone, I am working on Santo Pekoa (NVSS) and have just tried to import my ADE file into FSX. I was able to compile it fine and add it into my scenery library however in sim it's a different scale and location. The coordinates I have used in ADE for my background image are the same...

    Resample Issue

    Ignore what I wrote before, I edited the images in Photoshop on my Mac and moved them onto my desktop originally so I think that's why I had the error. I just re-saved it via Gimp on my desktop and now it's compiling fine, but it will apparently take 40 minutes....

    Resample Issue

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to create my BGL using resample but it's not working, I put run my .inf file through resample and a command prompt window appears on my screen for a split second but disappears and nothing happens. My three sources are day texture, night texture and blend mask in that...

    FSX Boeing 737-300/300F

    Update time, not much progress due to lots of school work but I've made the wing root. I used splines to create it and added a surface modifier and then changed it to an editable poly (not shown in this image). As you can see in the image some work needs to be done on the engine pylon and on the...

    FSX Boeing 737-300/300F

    Not much progress at all, the last time I did any modelling on this bird was over a month ago (since then I have done work on a G-IV, 747-400, KC-135 and YBSU). Tonight I made the cockpit windows finally. It still looks fairly bad, there are two large triangles which I need to fix, I also need...

    FSX Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker

    I've always wanted to model a KC-135 and since I just got the VRS Superbug I would like to be able to have my own aircraft to refuel from. I have only modeled one side and just mirrored everything. A long way to go for this model. Feedback is appreciated.

    FSX Sunshine Coast Airport- YBSU

    I haven't updated this project in a bit so here's somewhat of a update. I am remaking all the ground polys as I have gotten new reference images which are much higher quality and newer than Google Maps. I have learnt a lot more about 3DSmax and modelling in the past months so hopefully YBSU will...

    FSX A380 Wing Modeling

    Another method of creating wings is using airfoils. Whilst the A380 does not have a discrete foil you can use these images below to get the main shape of the wing. http://airfoiltools.com/airfoil/details?airfoil=sc20610-il http://airfoiltools.com/airfoil/details?airfoil=sc20606-il The fist...
