• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Assigning animation types for fs2004 aircraft

Hi, I'm trying to convert an aircraft from FS2004 simulator to P3D v4.5 . But That aircraft uses default fs2004 animations such as C_gear. So modelconverterx highlights them red and remove them when exporting causing problems. So I want to assign an animation type for each of that unsupported fs2004 animations. Problem is there are no similar animation types in dropdown list. How can I export the model without losing it's animations? Anyhelp would be great. Thanks in advanced. ..( I'm using P3d v4.4 sdk and its modeldef)

Hi,

c_gear is also a valid animation name for P3D. Do you have the path to the modeldef.xml file set correctly in the options? Without that file from the SDK MCX will not know about any P3D animation type.

Thank you arno , yes I double checked the file path before posting the thread. I'm using P3D SDK v4.4. if that make any different. I also checked the modeldef. xml manually to see the animation names. But C_gear and other names weren't in it. I guess my modeldef.xml is somehow corrupted. If that's the case where can I get the original modeldef? ( Otherthan re-downloading whole SDK)

Here is the 4.5 modeldef file. Arno, if this is not OK just delete this post.
