• 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.

How do I set axis Y is up in gmax? Currently Z is towards up. It’s messing up my animation when I take it to MCX.

Z axis is up in the Gmax world, that’s how it is. Does your model look right way up in the Left view? If so, I think you’re a bit baffled by the gizmo and its different modes versus the pivot - like most of us when first working with Gmax.

I’ve got a day’s work to do first, but I’ll post more this evening.

It works fine in FSX after exporting even thought I see it weird in MCX. But now the problem is the animated bus (I had an animated bus from gmax) is disappearing, only viewable from certain angles..such as a zoomed out view in top view.

Thanks Tom!

If the animation shows in FSX, it sounds like a result to me: MCX can worry for itself. Follow the help offered in Tom's post above, your problem in FSX is a known one.
