Dickert wrote:Hey Travis. You say Blender is the way to go while GMax is very hard??? I had the opposite experience. The GMax version loaded from the Flight Sim 2004 discs had excellent tutorials included, that were easy to work through, and then to apply those techniques to building an aircraft. Further, the on-line info, including videos were most often all of the same version of the soft wear, so there is little confusion.
Blender also has a ton of info out there, but almost every video is of a different version of the soft wear, with different interfaces, and with almost non of the info regarding aircraft. Further many of the videos assume you know many of the commands - which someone learning the program does not - so actually learning Blender is harder than learning GMax.
Having said that, GMax needs to be registered before being able to be used, yet the web site to do that no longer exists. I have been trying to get my copy of GMax running on my new confuser, to be able to update my aircraft, but I am not able to get a new registration yet the old number will not work. So - is there now any service out there that can get my stranded GMax files back into service?
And, I have been making progress learning Blender, have been thinking of modeling my aircraft from scratch using Blender, but the question still remains, once having done all that; is there a compiler to be able to take the Blender files and make a MDL file? Or, is there a plug-in to be able to import my GMax files into Blender, and then into MDL? Help!
To add insult, my updated Win 10 drive does not recognize my CD ROM, so I can't even load Flight Sim to this computer. I have had to reload XP to a new drive to be able to use my flight sim, but as I said, I can't reload GMax. Yes, I have been out of the loop for a while. So if you can point me to a Blender to MDL compiler..... Thanks.
