    P3D v4 Issues with LCXML

    Hello developers, Here is the issue I face with LCXML even after downloading the last version and assigning the correct paths of the last SDK. I open an .xml library file created and exported with LCXML for P3DV4.4 before. I have used this file and the respective .bgl with no problems so far...

    Material Scripting Metallic Texture

    Hi, I have created two different metallic textures for my AlbedoTexture. The one is called asphapbr.dds (for dry weather) and the second is called asphapbr_RA.dds (for wet weather) I 'm trying to crate a script so that the sim would read the first one when it does not rain and the other one...

    PBR ground material brightness reduce

    Hi, It is my first involvement with PBR materials for upgrading the ground textures for my scenery. I 've gone through the SDK and this video. They were both useful and the result is the following: I like it but I think it is a little bit brighter than I would prefer especially when looking...

    Default VOR & NDB generic objects WILL show!

    Hi, No matter what I did these objects cannot be deleted. I revised the altitude of the default airport and edited everything I needed (runways and taxiways parking positions exclusions etc). I deleted the objects for VOR and NDB (not the navaids but the objects). However they are still there...

    Library Vs Vegetation placement with annotator

    Hi, I created a library .bgl file containing three trees (all of them have the same texture-material applied). I followed the SDK directions and I managed to place those objects both as vegetation (V) and Library (L) using annotator. I intend to place more than 20000 of those trees. Which of...

    Placing objects to follow elevation

    Hi, I created some custom trees and buildings to place them (many times and in different sizes) around an airport. Since the area is not flattened, I 'm trying to find out a way to place them and follow the elevation of the aera without measuring the altitude in every singe placement. Is there...

    FSXA 3d object positioning vs library files

    Hello, Is there any difference at frame impact if I place an item several times in a scene and export a .bgl file than make a library file including this item and place it at the same positions using an .xml file? Thanks in advance!

    FSXA Different chanels on LM ground texture won't work

    Hello all, This is the problem I face. I have created my ground polygons with gmax exported the .mdl and made my .bgl using MDCX (1.30). The polygons that have the textures for the ground are in higher priority than the asphalt polygons (z-bias 40 and 8). The asphalt texture is tiled while...

    FSXA How accurate can an effect placement be?

    Hello everyone, I have made an object (a lightpole) in gmax and exported it in .MDL. I imported the .MDL file in MCX attached an effect and positioned it to the correct place. Here is the screenshot of the MCX. I placed the object many times in my airport by using coordinates and .xml code...

    Ioannis Daskalogiannis (Chania) International Airport (LGSA)

    It 's been over a year since I started to create my first FSX (and maybe P3D) scenery. The development is "slow" due to the fact that my skills and knowledge needed a lot of improvement. It is true to say that almost everything I learned has its "base" in this forum and this is a fact that we...

    Strange behavior of library files, using Gmax, MCX, Library CreatorXML.

    Hello to everyone, I will do a "short" description of a problem that I faced while trying to make a library file and place its contents in FSX. I have already managed to "solve" the problem but (to be honest) I cannot understand yet how this problem appeared in first place. So the reason of...

    FSXA GMAX or MCX material editor?

    Hello everyone, I 'm using gmax in order to create ground polygons. I usually apply the textures to the polygons by using a diffuse texture in the material editor and then I export an .mdl file. I then open the file to MCX (1.30) and do the editing of the material in it's material editor...

    FSXA Different transparencies in same texture?

    Hi everybody! I have created a skid texture with an alpha channel for transparency. I m trying to find a way to use this texture in two or more different models that are separately exported and change the transparency of the material in some way. I m using gmax and modelconverterX. My first...

    Simple GMAX question

    Hello, I have a simple question. I use gmax in order to create ground polygons (taxiways - runways). So, I make a rectangle, add a poly select, I apply the texture and add a uvw mapping (there is no need to further describe this procedure). When my job is finished I export the polygon without...

    FSXA Mipmaps create "shadows"

    Hello, This is the (new) problem that came up during my efforts to become a scenery designer:stirthepo I created some lofts in order to represent the edges of the runway and taxiways. I applied a texture 1024x1024 with alpha channel. The only thing I did in material editor of GMAX is to set...

    FSXA Layering Polygons

    The question is probably simple. The layering of ModelconverterX Ground polygon Wizard works only if we export the polygons on a single .bgl or is it effective n separate exports? For example if I export a runway polygon with layering 0 to a .bgl and the lines of the runway on a second .bgl...

    FSXA Blurry Textures

    Hello everybody, As I wrote in another thread, I 'm trying to make my first photoreal airport in FSX and I do face some problems. This is my last one. I firstly added a photoreal ground by using SBuilder X. The result was very nice but it was covering a larger area than the desired one due to...

    Strange Polygon after flattening

    Hello, I used ADE in order to flatten two parts of my airport area. The first poly flattens the main airport area (rynways taxiways & appron areas) at a certain altitude. The second polygon is much smaller and it is attached to a side of the main polygon. This polygon has individual vertices...

    I might be the newest member in this forum, so...Hello everybody!! It s been a long time since I stopped dealing with scenery design (2004 & fs9). I must confess that I am impressed by the progress on program development but mostly by the amount of info that you can find via FSDeveloper (and...
