Model Converter X / MDL Tweaker - Timed objects

Hi,

Just one more time, to make sure I understood Arno's sticky and everything else:

I have some timed objects (day of the year, time of day, hour of day) and the only one that gets converted to work in FSX is "time of day".

Is that the way it is supposed to be or am I missing something really simple?

Thanks

Fern

Hi,

Such conditions are only used when importing the object. You can set the value of each variable in the form that appears.

The FSX mdl format doesn't allow exporting such conditions for scenery.

Anything that only MDL Tweaker can change must remain in FS9 format, as Arno states above.

Yes, P3D doesn't support the old FS2004 format anymore (although I understand that they dropped support for such an old format, sometimes you have to drop old things to move forward).

To get conditions on FSX/P3D MDL formats you need to use SimConnect to place the object. Then you can add visibility conditions or do conditional placement with a tool like SODE.
