and exported to p3d then i'm wondering where do i apply the "$texture"? i also tried to make a material named displays and...
I managed to get it exported seems like one of the 200 buttons was mapped like instances for some reasion and not cloned atleast that seemed to fix it.
anyway do you happen to know if it's possible to load a 2d gauge like a display of fmc into 3d cockpit using modeldel.xml and use a custom fmc...
As title says every single time i try and export to p3d v4 it becomes stuck at 19% and i did let it run but it runs for 8 hours straight and it dosnt finish i do have another model im working on an RV14 that exports just fine

Ah sorry i might have forgotten that
Photoshop i use CS6

i got a little RV14 laying in my 3dsmax the SDK is setup and some of the gauges are made and the UV mapping is set on the guages so applying shouldnt be a issue
but i exported a .BMP file from photoshop 512x512 (as it needs to be a power of two if i am correct)
then i added the bitmap...
