• 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.

FSX Object textures only visible from one side

Hi,

I've recently started using 3dsmax instead of gmax for modeling and I have an issue
with the object i'm exporting.

When i export the object certain parts of the object in fsx are either missing or only seen from one side.
Other than that it looks transparent.. I have included the render which is what its supposed to look like and also the in game pics which have the problem areas pointed out.
Model is exported as an X file from 3dsmax and put through MCX.

Any idea how to get around this? i really do not want to re model the tower i want to keep moving forward :banghead:

Thanks in advance

When I use MCX, I have some textures which are for this kind of parts. Then I set in MCX material settings double sided for this textures to show from both sides. In SKU I have also two faces of each plane, inner and outer face of a plane (no need to make a 3D wall, only one plane). First I try to check all my models, the outerside is really outside of my model and inner is only inside part of the model. If not, I reverse faces. If I need textures on both sides, I texture both sides of the plane, inner and outer face.
Next in MCX I disable double sided for all textures which are only used outside the model, and use double sided option for all materials which are on both sides.

And that worked like a charm ! thank you very much. Much appreciated.
I think i need to study all the options of MCX as i didn't even know that option existed in MCX.
