I'm currently using ModelConverterX to view aircraft MDLs while I create repaints and it works really well, both in quickly being able to view changes to textures without loading FS, and also being able to see which textures map to which areas of the aircraft. However, when there isn't a...
I had a similar problem a while back and I think it was because one of my aprons had either the "Draw Surface" or "Draw Detail" option unticked. Even though only one apron was unticked, all aprons were affected. Check each apron's properties ensure both these options are ticked.
GIMP does a great job of saving 32bit BMP files interactively which runs through imagetool great, but unfortunately the scripting language doesn't allow you to set any alpha channel option and so saves the .bmp with a blank alpha. :(
Are there any other formats that imagetool...
Does anyone use GIMP to create .psd files (with alpha) which they then convert using Imagetool to create a .dds?
I'm having problems with the alpha. I'm creating my alpha by adding a layer mask to my image layer, drawing the alpha channel on the mask, applying the mask to push it...
Thanks for the quick response!
So I could simply divide the GMAX plane width by the number of pixels making up the image width to get a distance per pixel for the width. Then do the same calculation for the height and from these I can work out the new position.
I've not looked at...
I've got a geotiff image of my airport and I've succesfully followed the wiki "Align background image in 3D editor" to work out the x,y coordinates of my GMAX plane and create my ground polys.
What I would like to do now is take a smaller section of my geotiff and create my ground...
I've just had a thought regarding the moving of the effects. My 3D objects in the mdl are now going to be adjusted by the "correct entire object for curved earth" option. However, what does this do to the position of effects within the same mdl?
I'm wondering whether the movement...
Great stuff, I'll grab a copy later tonight.
Also, just tested a more complex set of objects in my single mdl, at varying ranges and angles from the refpoint and all are moved correctly to sit on the ground and in the correct positions :D
I've just done a quick test on a simple object (an airport sign) and the utility converted the object correctly. :D
I'll hopefully add more signs to my mdl later today and re-test. I'll let you know the results.
Would it be possible to add the following:
