MSFS texture distortion

The latest development release of ModelConverterX contains some new functionality that help you to inspect if your model is likely to have texture distortion issues in MSFS and also allows you to minimize this effect by updating your model. The video tutorial below explains all these functions. I would also like to mention that the […]

Export MSFS scenery package

With the recent changes for scenProc to export to MSFS as well, I have added writing a scenery to a MSFS package to the exporter capabilities. This means that ModelConverterX now also has the same export capability. So if you select “Export scenery” you will be able to export to a MSFS scenery package. The […]

But it’s not yet finished or fully tested as my current machine doesn’t meet the FS2020 specs. Once I’m back from vacation I’ll continue on this feature. By that time […]
