• 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.

Suggestion: flip textures in mat editor / texture tool

Hi,

not a big issue, just for convenience maybe.
Would it be possible to add a button in the material editor and the texture converter that causes a texture to flip?

Another nice feature - I'm not sure if I already wrote that some time ago - would be a repeat or click function in the "transform object" / move window. Right now, when an object has to be adjusted, one needs to enter the value for each step, which is reset to zero afterwards. I think if the value would stay, one could enter a small increment and then click on a plus or minus button to move the object until the desired look has been achieved. Just a thought.


Best regards,
Mark

You are wanting the textures to flip with a different behavior from "Flip all triangles" and "Flip all triangles with inverse normals," available in the Special tools drop down menu?

There is an option to flip all textures on import, or do you only want to flip some?

I'll think about the move, but I'll think that's hard to implement.

Hi,

it would be great if flipping could be done on individual textures. Generally flipping on import reverses the problem :) . The problem is that, depending on the source, textures are not flipped. MCX allows for changing the format and the size of the textures, but for flipping we need to deviate to an external application. If the flipping could also be done in MCX the workflow would be smoother.

I guess the movement thing would also easily work if the value, that has been entered manually, would not reset to zero after it has once been executed.

E.g.: enter 0.01 on the z-axis --> hit the "move" button until it's ok --> "close" the window.

Thanks for looking into this, Arno.


Cheers,
Mark
