    FS2004 FSDS Texturing

    What I ended up doing was pulled the engine, prop and canopy off. Then I went and did a "select all" , "Part", "Texture", cleared all of the textures and did a multiple adding texture to all 6 sides. Next thing I'll try is to do texture on each part separately and see if it holds. stu

    FS2004 Runway going below ground level (AGL)

    Hello. Placing a runway, it goes below ground level and when I taxi over to it, I fall below ground level onto the runway (cement runway). Looked on tabs and did not see anywhere to "check mark" as AGL. Other objects I'm placing in the area are ok because I "check marked" AGL on their...

    FS2004 Adding models from FSDS 3.51

    Hello. Yep. Its definitely the animation stuff that's causing the problem. Took 2 of my models in FSDS, stripped all animations from them (except for the lights), exported to a scenery file (mdl), loaded them in ADE and added models to scenery and they come up good. On ailerons, flaps, elevators...

    Hello. Yes. Compiled it as scenery objects. Been going back and forth between FSDS and Max 2012. I think I have it narrowed down (the problem).
