• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Gmax 1.2 for the Beginning Modeler (FS9 based)

Gmax 1.2 for the Beginning Modeler (FS9 based)

The Youtube based video instruction starts with gmax introduction and setup. It progresses through introduction of shapes and primitives, 3-view setup, construction of a complete exterior model including animations. The exterior model development is completed in 35 videos. It does not include texture mapping but does include preparation for and exporting to FS9.

Instruction focuses on use of basic tools, concepts, and techniques throughout. The main intent is to help new or beginning modelers get started with a slow graceful transition through the learning curve.

With the exterior model now completed, the second series will begin with texture mapping, then focus on building the Virtual Cockpit, panel, installing gauges, and setting up a basic flight model.

The Gmax series is located at Youtube at the link at the right.. You may post comments there.
The series is Public so you can also search for the title and my name there.
