Gmax flips some objects - Why?

Recommended Posts

Hello,I've just had a strange experience with Gmax:One of my hangars is shown with flipped polys in FS9 after converted from Gmax. In Gmax it looks totally normal, but in FS9 everything is flipped and I don't know why (this is maybe my Gmax object #200 or so). I didn't do anything special.Well, then I tried to flip all the polys in Gmax, but after that all the shadowed parts of the objects look like a mirror in flightsim (roof is dark, while the shadow side is bright etc.).Has anyone had had that experience before and knows a solution for it?Best regards,Sascha

Did you use the Mirror button in GMax? This flips normals in FS models. You should use the Mirror command under Modifier List/Parametic Modifiers to get round this.

Thanks, that helped.Yes, I really mirrored one part of the object. Now I mirrored the whole object again and it works. :)Sascha
