    Hello Dave,

    The 4mm vertex limit for FS9 doesn't stop a model exporting, instead it mangles small parts. This is why (almost) all FS9 models don't have 3D gauges in the VC, they depend on...

    We have a problem here with opaque error messages and as Milton says there are a number of possible causes. Misson may have too many polys or not enough textures, others have the System Unit other...

    If I understand you right, you have the gmax source file for the model and are preparing it for CFS2. If you export it in format which MCX can produce LODs from, you'll have a whole heap of work to...

    Here's another example from further back on the fuselage, before and after. The mapping has drifted ever so slightly, but for LOD40 it isn't noticed at all:-

    Good question Milton, it depends on how you build the additional LODs. You can build the LODs from scratch and remap as you go, or base them on the top-level LOD after it has been mapped. I used the...

    This is the gorgeous Bf109E built by Luca Festari and the late Gerard for CFS3: it's in the Mediterranean Air War (MAW) expansion. I haven't shown all the LODs, but this will give you an idea how the...

    Not sure where you find an LOD button in Gmax, even 3ds Max doesn't have that until version 2008. You have to build LODs yourself and name them as per the SDK. It's not too hard to simplify a clone...
