Failing To Create The Most Basic Runway Possible In Max

  • Hi Nick,


    If you look at FSCloud AD, they're only featuring a lonely runway without much mesh smoothing outside, as the case may be Spit40 could help you in automated generation of runways, taxiways and aprons.


    Example of FSCloud runway following the mesh in Montserrat : IRL the ground has been flattened to build this AD, the previous one has been totally destroyed by the volcano.




    Cheers

    Thanks Antoine.


    In a nutshell the issue is that the more features you want in the ground poly (multiple runways, taxi ways etc) the harder it gets to automate because AFS really needs a single poly with sufficient vertices. If it could cope with separate objects for those features it'd be relatively easy.


    I'll keep messing around with it as I get time and compare notes with Spit40 at some point.

    Exactly. Even doing it by hand is quite tricky in 3DSMax when you start having not just a isolated runway like in the tuto, but also taxiways and apron...
