If the license agreement has been reworded, I would like to know about it. If it hasn't, all of you had better read it. I did not feel Gmax was user friendly in licensing. Tell me if they have changed.


It would seem easy enough for you to answer your question by re-read the EULA again for yourself.

Hey Flitezimz,

I don't think you will have any problems. I know they ask you to enable cookies when registering Gmax, but this didn't work for some people. If you check the Gmax Support Forums, there is a way around this though.

That would be the register patch and it can be found here: http://www.fsalpha.com/gmax_fs/zip/AutoDesk_GMax.zip

If I remember correctly, you need to run the patch first before installing Gmax, right?

I registered Gmax originally, but after formatting the HDD, I didn't see the reason in re-registering :-X

HAve you compelted ALL of the tutorials that come with gMax?

There really is no substitute to going through all the tutorials first, then playing with the program.

One highly recommended tutorials is the "Stupid Idiot's Guide to Making an Airplane with Gmax" ..  commonly known as the "Stupid Idiot's Guide" ...

It's available from the main Simviation site, Design tutorials.

You people -those who are new to it- should try some projects that are considered a waste of time. For example, I modeled a simple box and made a series of tweaks in it [cutting, slicing, beveling, bending, etc.]. It may have been a waste of time, but it gave me ideas on how to do modify certain objects for a real project. That's how I ended up making nice-looking cars for FS.

But still, reading the tuts is a must. And you have to read them more than once and try them more than once so that you can lock that info into your head. I have read so many tuts and read them so many times, I might make my own mass tutorial on modeling techniques and how to solve unexpected problems that are not mentioned in tutorials.

Felix, I believe that first part of his post was a quote from somewhere else. ;)

Is it possible to use Autocad to create a plane?



Yes... you can do a model using Autocad... but take care with the file size... and after you will need to export and add the correct names to all moving parts.  ;)

If I remember correctly, isn't there a plugin for GMAX that eliminates the need for MakeMDL?  It's been a while since I played with GMAX and I am trying to set it up again.  If this plug in still exists, I would appreciate the link.

Are there any free programs I can download in order to create aircraft for FSX?
