As far as the exporter, yes. Whenever we update KEmax for ourselves, we try to release a public version at the same time.

As far as Max, I'm actually not sure about the details of our license. If that's how they all work, then yes, we'll be in the same situation here when we want to update to the latest. (We don't see any features that make us want to jump on 2015 at the moment.) We're currently working in 2014 then loading things in 2012 for export.

I've been trying to do some more research into this. I know when I first started my Max subscription, these were the terms of my individual license. When reading up on it again, I'm having troubles finding the exact wording regarding the latest 3 versions of Max restriction. I know there have been some subtle changes after the price increases, especially this last time, with the contracts. I'm not 100% sure anymore I'm bound to the restriction while being an active subscription customer.

If I find out anything different which let's us have more than the 3 latest versions of Max installed, I'll post it here. I'm also thinking of contacting Ideate which is still my official retailer of my Autodesk subscription. They might be able to clarify this with me better than finding what I need from the subscription center.

Just about done with the pilot controls. I'm probably going to modify the main control stick because it looks like the first control stick installed in the F-16. It is in the lower right. The selected object is the throttle control which is very loosely accurate. Basically it is accurate enough to slightly resemble the throttle control of the F-16. It doesn't have a couple buttons and it definitely isn't precise, but I need to move onto other things and this looks good enough for an RC model.

*EDIT
I just posted a schematic view along with the control view just to show this project is almost done as a whole. I'll be mapping this thing soon.

How long would you estimate that it would take you to map this jet?

I'm not 100% sure. I literally just started mapping it though--finally. Hopefully I'll have it done this week or the weekend. I also need to finalize all the pivots and NUP values. All in all, this project is close to being done.

With this model, it will take me many hours. I find the older version of Max was easier to map in as well. I just got myself into a slump and I haven't used Max as much as I should over the past year and a half. I am stumbling a lot with my layout and I am not gracefully flowing through this part.

So to reiterate, it will take me many hours. Many.

Yep, I haven't got another second free to work on this. I was hoping to get something done over the weekend, but no free time whatsoever. Disappointing, yet life moves on.

I'll hopefully get something done this week till Friday, but this coming weekend I'll be off on an adventure in the forest. Target shooting and survival skills practice. Hoping conditions will be just right for primitive fire making--I'm pretty excited already yet dreading my non-callused hands going through the hell of making a fire by rubbing sticks.

Wear laced boots so you can take a boot lace and make a bow. Then you'll just need a good knife and rock.,.......and maybe a little luck.

I will just be practicing making fire this time as it isn't a dedicated survival training adventure. I just like to practice making primitive fires when I'm out in the woods. I may end up forgetting about the whole survival stuff completely depending on how much alcohol intakes happens with the other guys.

I am guessing you were referring to a fire bow too. That is the easiest way I have made primitive fires before.
