    Helgoland EDXH - Who would be interested?

    How about a SceneryDesign.org freeware projects group? I'm sure with all the talent on this forum a small group could produce some excellent sceneries!

    MDL compiling error

    Hi all. I've been experimenting with attaching effects with the MS gmax Attach script, lights in particuar. When I go to compile makemdl fails and I get the following error screen... I haven't got a clue as to what is causing this or how to solve it. MakeMdl runs fine except...

    Gmax UVW texture mapping problem

    Problem solved chaps :) Lou, I tried running the images through Photoshop like you did, and setting them to 8-bit there and that did the trick! Can't believe it was that simple in the end, have been banging my head against a wall for ages! Arno, thanks for that "texture correction" tip...

    Gmax UVW texture mapping problem

    Hi. The images map correctly and thus in fs they appear ok, but they just wont show correctly in gmax, which is stopping me from placing other objects correctly. I used the top down view when mapping and just used perspective to quickly illustrate the problem in those shots. Really can't...

    Gmax UVW texture mapping problem

    Hi all. I have a problem with textures I'm mapping to planes (as in flat surface) via the uvw editor. Basically what is happening is when gmax loads the image the right hand side is 'chopped off' and placed on the left hand side, like this... I thought this was happening to all...

    Repeating Bitmaps

    Hi all. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this, so please forgive me if it's not. I'm having a problem understanding what makes bitmaps repeat. If I were to make (for example) an apron using something like FSSC then the bitmap I use for the texture gets repeated over and...

    Regarding Gmax ground-polys

    Thanks, at least I'm not doing anything wrong then :) I guess it's just a question of which method to choose then. I do like having the buildings cast shadows, but I'm worried that the 2002 method may not work come FS2006, but then there's no guarentee the 2004 method will either I...

    Regarding Gmax ground-polys

    Hi all. I've just been trying the above method of creating ground polys and it's awesome. I do however have one small problem. Buildings and other scenery objects are not casting shadows on the ground, but aircraft are. I think I've followed the instructions correctly, but just incase...

    v2004 Makemdl Query

    Ahh I see. gmax will import .3DS files but not .max I'll have to see if I can save as .3DS Cheers, Paul.

    v2004 Makemdl Query

    Hi, If I try that all I get is a message saying "No appropriate import module found!" What file format were you importing? In 3DS i save my files as .max Paul.

    v2004 Makemdl Query

    Unfortunately not, that would a be very very very good thing indeed. There is a way of converting them, but it's awkward and doesn't always produce good results. Converting from 3DS to gmax starts with exporting in the .x format anyway, so you may as well just import this into makemdl...

    v2004 Makemdl Query

    Hi Arno, Thanks for that :) Found this thread too... http://www.scenerydesign.org/forum/showthread.php?t=479&page=1&pp=20 ... which proved useful. Still can't get it to work with 3DS MAX exports (via .x files), but it's working fine with gmax exports. Cheers, Paul.

    v2004 Makemdl Query

    Hello all. Wasn't sure where to put this query so forgive me if it's in the wrong place. I've been playing around at making different things for fs, with 3ds max and gmax, using both the old 2002 gamepacks and methods and also the 2004 gamepacks. When using 3DS Max i export as a .X...

    Gmax Texture Woes...

    Hi Guys. I have a problem with mapping in Gmax. Every texture loads like this in the UVW editor... As you can see, the far right of the image loads on the left. This happens for everything! Anyone know what could be causing this? I've tried doing the same in 3DS MAX and here it...
