VGDS tweaker - safegate shows but no messages or lights

So I made the models using the tweaker, imported them into ADE as models (I actually had to import them to ModelConverterX and then export them as FSX models as ADE gave a compiler error when compiling the directly imported model), placed them at LEMG at the right heading.

In the scenery, the system appears (textures are in the right texture folder), but does not display any lights or messages as you line up and roll up to it.

Any ideas?

Hi,

If you convert them to FSX MDL files you will break all the conditional code that makes sure that the lights switch, etc. So you need to use the FS2004 style MDL files to have these features.

Thanks for quick response. Do you know of any reason why the current version 1.47 of ADE would not compile the FS2004 .mdl files output by VGDS tweaker, as mine give an error on compile. They also appear with no footprint when you add the model in the ADE GUI (ie 0ft by 0ft size), even though the model data says the model is 3.93ft wide?
