help needed with scenery object

Recommended Posts

I made a house with gmax.the house and the texture come out fine in fs2004 but when i go near it disappears and when i go far it reappears again.why is this happening.While creating a bgl file i have kept the draw diastance at 10,000 and the scenery complexity at normal.

Which gamepack are you using? I assume you are using the Fs2002 gamepack? And how did you place your object, directly from GMax or with a macro?

yes i am using 2002 gamepack.I am creating bgl files not macros(directly from gmax).I had a similar problem about a year back.You had helped me out.But i forgot how now.The previous sceneries i made are working fine.

Normally this is a problem with the v2 value, but GMax should calculate that correct for you if you export directly to a BGL file.Is your house maybe far from the 0,0 point in GMax? It is better to center your objects around this point.

maybe you are right because i may have moved the house far from the centre to match it with the location in fs2004.i will try the change and let you know.Thanks a lot.

It is better to place the house at 0,0 always and then enter the correct coordinates when you export. That way it will also appear at the correct location. As the 0,0 point is placed at the coordinates you enter.

Thank you very much arno.you are the Guru of FS.I put the object in the centre of Gmax and it worked.I need another help.I am from Nepal.(Mt.Everest country).I would like to know if there are any sites with ariel/satellite photo of Major cities.I know a site USGS but all i could find was U.S pictures.If i got the photo of my capital (kathmandu) then i could put the objects in a more accurate way.Thanks a lot.
