    FSW FSW SDK is Available

    P3D v3 Which 3D modeling tools work with P3D?

    I'm thinking about getting P3D v3.1 but I spend the majority of my hobby time trying to make scenery and/or aircraft so I'm wondering about which modeling tools support P3D development.

    Does Gmax export convert PSD to DDS?

    I worked through the simple object in Gmax video tutorial and was able to make the model, texture it using the PSD file and export to FSX.
