    Thorp Update

    In the interest of not making folks plow through a long thread I am shifting to individual updates. The project has moved to P3D version 4.5. I am working on PBR materials and learning Substance Painter.

    P3D v4 PBR Material Question

    Setting up Max for 2 SDKs

    I finally decided to get into P3D v4. I still need to work in v3 at times. How do I set up Max so I can use a shortcut to open it with v3 tools or v4 tools depending on the version I want to work on?

    I have been working on more cockpit stuff, and I am getting close now. The pilot figure is the last big thing I still need to do. No idea when it will actually be done though. ;)
