It's very simple.

Hey Guys,

Thanks For all Your replies ! My intention was to actually make this a WIP and Now I have to get around to doing it !!

I have been modeling in 3dsMax for Fs9 - for the past few Years .  Then I decided to switch every thing over to FsX – Getting everything set up was fun – Getting back all My Favorite Airplanes – and Scenery – I really fell in Love with the Scenery – Its Why I made the change !!

I did run into a couple of Speed Bumps  Tongue

First was the FPS Boogieman – Flying over cities was Hazardous – FPS’s would Crash out the bottom !!
After changing out My Video Card and Adding more memory I got a slight improvement – But Not Much – at least I wouldn’t Crash crossing Anchorage ! - the real improvement came when I upgraded My Processor – from 2.4 ghz to 3.5 ghz – Now I can slide the sliders Right  - and maintain FPS Even crossing Vancouver !!

The next Speed Bump was when I got back to modeling – Completely different world !! – Went to WAR with XtoMdl and couldn’t get the SDK to work with 3dsMax . After Raking through My Hard drive I found a copy of FSDS 3.5 – and remembered how easy it was to use ( or should I say how Simple it was to use ) – I also remember how Un Elegent it was !! After using 3dsMax for 3 years – I’m going to change over to FSDS 3.5 – How insane is that – Desperation Creates Strange Bedfellows !!

Well I bought Adam Howes Aircraft Design Guide and Off to the Firey Mountain I went. – Adam covers everything – Period – from scaling Your BackGround Images to the Virtual Cockit – Texturing – Painting – Animation – Contact Points – and Light’n’er’up.

My experience with FSDS 3.5 has been very different – Not Unpleasent – But Not the way I have been doing things  - I find that taking a Point Pushing – Polygon Drawing – Part Splitting Approach – I can do everything in FSDS that I did in 3DS – and when I decide to Check’er’outinthe’simm – its as simple as – saving the file – and opening up FSX !! and there She is in all her Glory – Do a couple of go arounds !!

I was a bit disappointed with Boolean – but I found that by pushing points and splitting parts I could maintain My Geometry – and still get the cuts that I needed !  Cheesy

So far I am Pleasently Pleased with the results – and am just about ready to start creating the virtual Cockpit !
( Book 6 )

Now a couple of WIPs  Smiley

Oh my. I do wish that you'd asked for help in getting Max setup to work with XtoMDL, as it really is not that difficult. There are a few gottchas one might run into, but nothing that a few minutes wouldn't set to rights...

Hiya Johnman  Cool  Looking good bud, glad you figured out the picture posting procedure. I used to enjoy posting all my WIPS over at SurClaro (deep sigh) Keep the shots coming, looking forward to see it progress,  (looks like you're having fun with it!)

No, it's not required at all. Smiley Whenever you do get back into Max, just let me know and I'll help you get things sorted out.
