Irritating Problem (Read 1244 times)

Using Win 7, FS9, FSDS 3.5.1, Model Converter X & Instant Scenery 2.
Question:  When using XP, I made a ship and the turrets moved back and forth and the gun barrels raised up and down at the same time.
Now I cannot make a simple animation and be viewed properly in FS9.  Is it because of Win 7?
Making a 2 1/2 ton truck and want the driver door to open.
But the end result is always seeing only half the truck above ground in FS9.  Appreciate any suggestions on this.

Remember FS9 is Tick 18 …..Not ambient.

I use Win 7 with no problem.

Try removing all the animation and see where your object sits.

Remember to place the object where you want it and THEN do the animation, never move the part after you set animation as it will move around on you.


Try making your object as a BGL and install directly so as to eliminate the other programs that may cause the problem and then add the other steps one at a time.

My Gosh - You are the man.  Forgot the Tick 18  Thank You
Does FS9 recognize reflections or not using FSDS 3.5.1?

I am pretty sure FS9 can make reflection but I have no idea how, sorry.

I think you will need to manually tweak the “X” file and then compile it manually, but I am just guessing.

In FSX it’s done with FSDSxTweak.
