hi people! well ive got this all working nice now! flys good after some work on engine and prop files! just need to get landing gear working now and then i will release it!

still having a problem with the texture though! it says it cant read the dds file? just shows up black! the texture size is 4096! but i tried making it smaller and that didnt help? any ideas why the dds file cant load? thanks

Maybe the filename is too long? Importer has some internal limits that are sometimes getting in the way (it's a bug).

Normal/bump map, isnt it the same thing as far as visually?

On the other end, parallax bump map could be a nice complement to normal.

ok dont think i will have this finished today! maybe? dont know? there is a lot of code in the mig29.js for animating the landing gear! some i need, other bits i dont! first i have to work it out.

then hope i linked it up right in max! i linked the wheels to the landing gear, then the gear and everything else to the body! thinking that the wheels would have to follow the gear when it closes, seems like the right way to rig it but cant say till i get the gear moving!

also i think i need to resize it by about 50%!

ok after i resized the reaper i had to set it up again to sit on the ground, first person view and the matlib again!

after pulling all the code from the mig29's js file for animating the landing gear, im sorry to say i cant work with this! there is far too much for me to work out from this code! one bit connected to another to another and so on!

i cant seem to break it down! all i have is 3 wheels and 3 landing gear arms! just 6 bits! the mig29 has loads move moving bits, rods, gear, objects!? im lost!

who set up this mig29? need to ask them for help!

so untill the landing gear is working i wont be releasing the reaper! no point if i cant put the gear away! once thats done its all finished and ready to be posted here for download! ;)

ok tryin to get the landing gear done so i can release this but im getting an error in the script?

something about an unexpected token in this line:

geom.rotate_joint_orig(front_arm, jsb['gear/gear-pos-norm']) * 3.14, {x:-1,y:0,z:0}); // landing gear front arm animation

anyone see a problem with it?

thanks
