I've started using ModelConverterX and ADE with P3D just to have something new to do. I used them years ago and just decided to pick them up again. Back then, I don't remember having any real problems, but now, there's just one big one. Perhaps someone can give me a hint as to what I'm doing wrong (of course, Ill figure it out 20 seconds after I press the "Submit topic" button, but bear with me).

Here's the procedure I use:

1. Build model in Sketchup. 2. Export as .dae file. 3. Open .dae in ModelConverterX. 4. Convert texture to .dds. 5 Export as .mdl file. 6. Load ADE, add model to list. 7 Place model in airport.

Now, when I load P3D, the model is there, but it's not textured, just a big black box. I think the problem is where I put the model and texture. I have been putting both and the model in the P3D Add-on folder. But no matter where I put it, I still just get a black box.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

What did I tell you? I figured it out as soon as I exited the website.

The folder I was exporting things to was not the folder I had added to the P3d scenery library. Duh.
