Steve,Bad news is that I think that you can''t use them with Fly!II's built-in editor. You may be able to use them with Terramodels or maybe there's a way to convert the .BIN files into SMFs... Will see if I find something...Sorry...Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!

Steve,You may want to take a look at Zmodeler. It converts .BIN to .SMF for EVO and then you have to make some minor modifications to get it to work.It works fine as long as the .BIN uses a single texture. After exporting as EVO2 (which creates a .SMF and a .BMP file from the .BIN and .RAW files) you must do the following:a) save the .BMPs as .TIFs (you can do so with Microsoft Photo Editor):( move the .TIF and .ACT files to the ART folderc) go into the .SMF and fix the texture file; for example, if the texture's name is HANG1.tif, you'll see that the .SMF file will have two entries, one that says just HANG and then another that'll say "hang.tif", add .tif to the one that just says HANG and delete hang.tif but leave the double quotes.I tried this with the EGLISE.BIN model which only uses 1 texture and it worked fine. Although it may be able to remap multiple textures within Zmodeler and resave as an SMF, I haven't figured out how to do so....You may want to try ir out yourself...Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!

Doc,Although I understand French and can even speak a little bit, I have a hard time writing it, it would probably take me three times as much to do so because I'd have to check grammar, spelling, etc.The scaling has nothing to do with the textures, right? If it doesn't, do you know how to modify the SMF created by Zmodeler, and use more than 1 texture?Regards,Alejandro AmigorenaCheshire, CTFly!

>The scaling has nothing to do with the textures, right?Right! Alejandro...but if you convert a .bin to a.smf with Zmodeler the scale of the object is modified therefore you have to change it...Unfortunatly I fear that ZModeler can't use more than 1 texture...:( Sorry for my approximate english:-hmmm !Regards.

Hi Guys :-wave I have been able to do a couple of the models using Terramodels. Unzipping the files into the Art & Models folders. Then using the "stock user objects" option to place them. Its going to take some time to sort out the files for each item tho' to put into my scenery, but the models are so good its more than worth the effort.Cheers for your valuable help.Are any model makers out there making models to share with the community to use in scenery?What Im looking for are things like Churches, more Farm houses, Cooling towers... you know the score.Steve.http://mysite.freeserve.com/fly2theuk/aragon.jpg][/divWebsite not running yet.My United Kingdom Scenery.http://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...&Go=Change+View
