SimDirector where to post here?

could not find a section for SimDirector but anyway this may not be a fault of SimDirector.

I have placed many objects in SimDirector and find it very easy to use, but i have noticed that only position, alt, and heading remain when the BGL is created.

I set objects with pitch and bank sometimes but this information is lost the object returns to horizontal.

Any ideas anyone? this may be a limitation of FSX / P3d.



you can see here one copy of the greenhouse from the BGL file horizontal and the other from Simdirector file positioned correctly.

There used to be a bug in FSX causing the pitch and bank to be ignored, so maybe that bug is still there in P3D v4 as well.
 
found reports that it was after SP2 but models made in Gmax didn't have the issue:-/ i make stuff in Sketchup and have not used Gmax, is it a Sketchup thing?? I caused a problem in instant scenery.

The issue is in bglcomp or the bgl format as far as I know, so it has nothing to do with the modeling tool you use.
