• 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.

Converted Model operates 180 Degrees in Reverse - Help Request

G'day.
I was told this forum would be the better place to ask my question...


I have converted a few ground models (from a scenery library) to create some interesting AI sessions with the models.

But, though I have successfully converted and tested the models (I always create drivable versions to make sure they display etc), when I advance the throttle, the model drives backwards -- and -- the tail lights are displaying on the front of the model. Thus I assume that the vehicle is 180 degrees out.

Is there a tool to edit and change this or is there something I can do in the config perhaps (though I didn't see any reference that might prove useful).

Thank you in advance.

Use the Transform Object/Rotate command in ModelconverterX (which he was using for the conversion) and rotate the model 180 degrees in Heading.

Thanks Tom. I knew that of course, but it is unkind to not provide the solution in the OP for the sake of others' continuing education. :teacher:

Yes, my apologies, Bill. I meant to get back and share Tom's suggestion but got sidetracked.

Thank you, Tom.
