GMAX and API question

Recommended Posts

I have a question about GMAX dimensions and the FSregen API procedure. I made a box (rectangle) in GMAX with the correct (for my building) dimensions of 480m x 30m x 11m. I then exported and made an API via the FSregen process. Once the API was placed using Airport 2.60 (with a SCALING of 1) the terminal shows up fine but all the dimensions are double what I made them in GMAX! I then went into GMAX, halved all the dimensions, made an API again and the terminal showed up in the correct dimensions. All my units are set to meters in GMAX (Both in the Unit Setup and the Preferences dialog). Anyone know what the deal is?On another note, am I asking hard questions here or what? I've asked two lately that seem to be newbee stuff (which I am) and no one has responded. Oh well, I was just wondering.Thanks in advance.

HiIn the 3d object user API part of airport there is a user parameters dialogue box and in there is scale, bring the scale down to 0.50 and it should be ok

For some reason GMax always uses scale 0.5 for the models, so you should always use that scale when you call an object made with GMax.Arno
