Hi guys, Im pleased to let you know I have nearly completed a tutorial on how to make a Tree with 3DS Max and Photoshop. You can follow along with me on every move with your mouse, creating the model, importing into Fly2 and making the unwanted bits vanish. If I had any secrets all will be revealed :-eek This method then can be used to the full with making people, bridges, towers ... sheep?? Sheep? anyway check out the F2FDesign website soon.The tutorial is in PDF format.After that I will make a building tutorial ;-) http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/96678.jpg SteveMy Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orghttp://www.wrexhamspace.org/Steves%20Card.jpg

I know many of you guys can make models out there, but many just dont know how. Not so long ago I was one of them :-) But soon all those who have the software can make a tree set like this in 30mins... or less.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/96784.jpg I mixed a few clumps of trees together using 60ft and 90ft models. The textures are 64X64 low res, instead of the heavy 125X125 sized tiff. As you can see, with a good texture they look like a hi res tiff like the 125X125. Though go much closer and you can realy tell the difference. But I think the effect is perfect for Autogen.SteveMy Websitehttp://www.wrexhamspace.orghttp://www.wrexhamspace.org/Steves%20Card.jpg

Steve, I have a bad habit of opening a zip file and then moving them into their various folders. Of course, I fail to see whether they have already their pathsfolders, since the zip window gives me enough room to view only the files. I should get into the habit of unzipping into a generic folder. In this case I would have seen the three folders. Sorry, but thanks for the quick response.As for the Electra, I need to clean up a few more textures as well as move some guages to their proper location before I could call it an Alpha release. When I get close, you'll be among the first to test fly it. It flyes quite well, with the heavy feel of a vintage twin.tony

Steve, I am flying around the LSFO area. Where is the best place to see your new trees? I am having difficulty identifying them anywhere.tony
