I think you aren't opening the zip file and are just renaming it. I zipped up the .g3x. It is strange if you are doing it right, but it's coming this way. Try this .g3x then. It's not zipped.

thanks, but it didn' t work with .g3x. I placed then the .plng folder into the planes and the jpg folder into color schemes. Now I have the Turbine Yak but not the QQ design. Where do I place the other two folders (g3x.enc and QQ.turbine Torque)?

Import the g3x file into G3 through the simulation>import>g3x process that is actually in G3 itself. DO NOT open the g3x file and try to manually place each file into the right folder as that is the whole point of the g3x format(to put everything into the right place)DO NOT UNZIP g3x FILES.

You saved it to your desktop as a zip and not a g3x.

To ensure that you get the g3x file downloaded correctly...

Click the link for the g3x file.
Internet Explorer will ask if you want to Save, Open or Cancel. Click Save.

Internet Explorer will display the Save As dialog.

Near the bottom of the Save As dialog is the Save As Type combo box.

The default value of this field will be as a compressed folder... or ZIP file.

Change the Save As Type combo box to All Files, or put quotation marks around the file name in the File Name edit box.

Modify the name if necessary to be sure that it ends in .G3X

Click save.

By following the above steps you are effectively telling windows that you know what the type of the file actually is and you dont want it to change it automatically.

Do not extract the files from the G3X/ZIP and then try to import them. You are subverting the import/export system that is designed to make your life easier if you do."

Thanks for posting the G3X file. It worked fine. Great edit. I still Can't understand why the zip didn't work. I was trying to unzip it, not just rename.

Doesn't matter now.

Thanks again
Mike

Thats a neat edit 50 it flys real good -thanks!

It took me till now to try this plane cause I was having the same problems as everyone else. Also I can confirm that changing the "Save As Type" combo box to "All Files" results in a ".zip" file for me

I'm glad you like it!

If anyone doesn't know what to do, here's what:

(1) right click on the .g3x file and then "save as"
(2) change to "all files" from zip below the file name
(3) add a .g3x to the end of the name of the file

yea his name is Quique Somenizini.

I'm sorry it didn't work for you. Anyone that wants to, PM me your email and I'll send you the file directly via email. I don't understand why this is happening, but this is the way I've always done it and there's been no problems before.
