Couple of my models for you all

Hi All

I'm putting my models on this site so you can give them a try

My site

I've still got some work to do on these ones but they are very flyable as they are..

feedback, good or bad, most welcome

Nigel

new variants of the shock flyer and the x-ufo are now on the site
due to a texture proble the files sizes were alot bigger than they needed to be also new flight dynamics have been added to the shock flyer to make it more realistic.

first off make sure you have the latest beta build .426

you can place the files anyware on your pc,

then in the simulator click Simulation --> Import --> G3X, this will bring up an open dialouge , from here browse for the file you downloaded and click open

you should get a message at the bottom of the screen saying that the import was successful, you can now select the aircraft from your plane list (first time you select it there will be a delay as it builds the collision meshes

Hmmm, yes this works with a couple of other planes I have downloaded, but yours come as a zip file (ShockFlyer.G3x.Zip) with 7 files in it (colorscheme, tag, KEX, Plng3 etc.), and when I use the importer it don’t show either the zip or any of the files in the zip map?!

Have I done something wrong??

Really looking forward to try the ShockFlyer

Thanks

Ahh, got it now. It was because the file type (on the “save file screen”) was WinZip and not all files. It’s working now

Thanks for making these fantastic planes for us

Too bad. I have been looking for a flat profile type plane to fly but I can not get yours to work. It comes to me as a zipped/compressed file. I click on open and another window comes up saying windows can not open this file etc etc etc .

sorry it seems to be a problem with not zipping the files

as the file format .g3x is not known by windows it persumes its a zip file..

on the site they are not compressed but that will be updated tonight

untill then try this link for the shockflyer Shokie

Nigel

edit: sorry posted too soon the file wasnt uploaded yet, try now..

Hi Nigel,

Great job on the UFO & shockflyer. Any ideas why the files are so large ? When you export the .KEX files how big are they? The Katana Mini.G3X is only 1.3 MB and Rick's Extra 330's is 2.3 MB

regards,

Tony.

The planes installed fine for me. As the post above says, unzip the file before importing it. Oh and nice job on the planes.

Nemo: i have no idea wht they are coming out at these sizes, actually it might be the texture file, not checked yet. but i did think they were a little big and after seeing yours i'm going to look into mine further..
edit: the kex files for the shokie and xufo are 40kb and 1.4mb

it seems that hosting the files in there native format G3X is causing the problems, different pc are treating them differently. give me an hour or so and i'll update them so that they all WILL need to be unzipped

opjose; thanks, she is, although i've just got home and she has torn up the kitchen

Nigel
