Aircraft Size In Aircraft Selection Screen Issue.

Recommended Posts

I built a plane in Gmax. I thought I had the right scale, but later found it was too large. I scaled all the parts down, then exported to FSX.Ingame the plane is the correct size, however in outside view, and the aircraft selection screen the plane is very very small and I have to zoom way in to be able to see it.I thought I had made it too small however when sitting on a runway it is the correct size. Seems to just be affecting how the chase camera, and selection window are drawing it.Anyone ever have a similar issue, and or know how to fix it?Thanks

How did you rescale ? If you didn't add an X-Form modifier, then while all the parts were scaled down, the 'apparent size' wasn't... (this is not the precise technical language, but simplified)...Select all parts, add an X-Form modifier to the stack, then click on Reset:/Scale. This should fix the problem.

I used the Select and Uniform Scale button to resize.I tried the Xform. Selected all. Added Xform to the stack, then went into hierarchy, and selected reset scale.Made the model loaded FSX and the same issue is present. Maybe I am doing it wrong.

If anyone else has the same issue I found the issue out.Any part that has animation and has been rescaled using the "Select and uniform scale" button will appear way too small.To fix you have to touch every part independantly and reset the scale in the hierarchy menu.Off to rescale my entire model piece by piece. Wish you could do it as a group, but it does not seem to work that way.
