Hi

Did you read the initial post? ;)

gMax/makemdl.exe - gmax 1.2 is the latest version downloadable from the TurboSquid.Com site To actually create the flyable mdl file, you need the FSexport.dll that comes with the gmax gamepack from Microsoft.


You need to be pretty dedicated and be prepared to spend 10's hours making mistakes (maybe 100's) -- but there is plenty of help available.

Gmax is pretty much the main program used for FSX design (& P3D up to 4 so far)

See Milton Shupe's great set of tutorials

I just downloaded Gmax & successfully installed it. You might need to be patient as the installer takes a while to search for installed applications.

Registration is a bit of a palaver but I got there in the end. Ignore the link from this window

Use this one instead https://www.turbosquid.com/RegisterGmax/Index.cfm

Hope this helps. Good luck!
