    FSX Animation woes

    Problem; In FS I move the control wheel to the left, the animation looks good on all cables. I move the stick to the right, and near the end of the animation, the whole works does an about face and shoots the other way! Am I being bothersome yet? :D It's a good thing I got a haircut last...

    For a few sessions now I've been trying to find out what happened. All of a sudden the snaps quit working. I've went through all the snap settings and anything I try does not help. I found the topic, and figured that would solve my issue...

    FSX Oleo / Scissor link animation

    I'm hopeful I can find the help here that I need. For the life of me I can not figure out how to animate the landing struts. I have keys at 100 (Gear at full extension) and 200 (Gear at full compression) That part of the animation works fine. At full extension I click the animate button and go...

    FSX Animations in general

    Hi everyone. I'm in the midst of doing all the animations, and I'm wondering if there is possibly a list of some sort, that shows designated animation settings (0-100/100-200) that should be used for specifics. IE: Elev, Aileron, Rudder, Compass, Struts etc, etc. Is there such a a thing...

    FSX Look-At constraints

    RESOLVED. Delete post if you like. How to delete? Animating the Oleo Struts has been frustrating to say the least. I created two spheres to use as Look-At points for the animation of the scissor action as the Oleo tube slides. After messing around I'm finding that this method will not...

    No previous experience

    With encouragement from N2056 and Milton Schupe, I have taken the plunge into the dark side of modeling. Gmax, a cantankerous beast that will bite back at any time, without reason. My feble attempts to re-create the Aeronca "K" for FSX/ P3D. Off to a good start.

    Gmax zoom is acting strange

    Recently I have been experiencing issues while zooming in and out in all view ports. Yesterday all was fine. Whereas I could click on a part, roll the mouse wheel, and the view would go large/small as needed. Today I started Gmax doing the usual modeling. I'm finding that when I click in any...

    Textures & Graphics

    Hi folks. I'm in the midst of creating my textures for a new model, and a few things come to mind. Templates. Considering the formats that can be "saved-as", what is the best settings & format to save in from Adobe Photoshop for the best presentation in FSX? JPG, Tiff, etc. (Not to confuse...

    My first SU/FSX/P3D project

    Hello everyone. I figured it's time I stopped lurking and become an active member if I really want to learn. About a year ago I started getting interests in GSU. Wanting to learn how to model a hanger gave me the drive to start learning. All considering, making the model is easy. That is...
