Grand Case - TFFG - Gmax model of Terminal, Tower & Fir...

Recommended Posts

I have the brilliant Flytampa St. Maarten scenery and have been busy working on the afcad for Grand Case. I have it made it as close to the real place as I can within my limitations. However Rwy12, Ez-scenery custom models do not resemble the the buildings in that area at all and I am moved to ask if anyone has modeled them in Gmax?. If I can find the models I shall upload the airport to avsim when finished. Otherwise maybe someone with the knowledge and the time could do the buildings for me, it's a lot to ask I know, but I just have not got the time to learn how to do it myself.Thanks for reading my plea for help.--Catmar

Okay, looks like I will have to find the time to learn Gmax and try to make my own buildings. Next question does gmax work with Vista?--Catmar

Yes, Gmax will work with Vista.
Thanks MeshMan, Iv'e downloaded Gmax 1.2, installed it on Vista and have started on the very long and painful road to learn how to manipulate the gmax to produce some models. I have now been able to make a very simple sloping roof house and tomorrow I willattempt to learn how to make the textures. Got a really big headache now :( but I'm sure in the end with lots of playing aroundI will be able to make a few little models to enhance one or two default airfields.Regards

Best of luck, gmax can be a pain to figure out. Hardest part for me was the texturing.here is a great place with tutorials and help fileshttp://www.scenery.org/tutorials.htm

Hi Michael,I am still working on the tutorial for making a house with a garage and sloping roof and just about got it right except for one little problem with the fascia's under the roof as two of them are not the same size as the rest, it does mention that in the tutorial but I just can't get my old head around it. I'll get there in the end, but it is a bit of a learning curve especially when you are getting on a bit. I did take a quick lesson on texturing the house, but got it wrong, so I will have to take another few go's at it. But you are right getting the textures on the model is quite hard to do.Thanks for the reply and all the best
