• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Hi,

MDL8 is the format used by FS2004 and earlier aircraft models. But in itself that is not a problem. What's the error you get?
 
I was trying to get the gear to show in an AI I have. used ani editor, got the gear down (if I did it right) ;) fixed animations. compiled or exported and got that mdl8 message.

Where do you get that error? And what is the exact error message?
 
After I used animation editor to get the wheels down (airplane is an AI and works but no wheels can be seen in the game). After I got the wheels down I exported and when done, ... (can't remember exact words) - non-usable mdl It is an mdl8 type.
Tried this on another plane and it was OK.
