• 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.

MSFS Flight Model Bending - The Graf Zeppelin (II)

Not a tremendous amount to show from the past few days, mainly refinements and bringing parts up to standard. Finally want to finish the engine I've spent so much time getting perfect thus far

That said here's a little experiment I spent a few hours on one night, hope it's not too much of a tease ;)

This is MOST awesome! I’m so glad you’re sticking with this. Ever since I was in high school (many, many decades ago) I’ve always had a keen interest in these huge ocean liners in the sky. I even made a paper model on one from scratch back then modeled after the early zeps. Like it’s said, with planes you fly, with zeppelins you voyage. The navigation and plotting trips from Europe to the Americas and staying in course would be a challenge all the while maintains a time schedule. Just rain collecting on the fabric would change the ballast of the ship to keep it in trim. There’s more to it than most people think.
 
I thought I'd share a little bit of my experiment

Aside from that, more control car work, ancillary system modelling and lower deck cabins going in, windows now fully refactored with the assistance of source materials

And texture work has restarted on finished areas

Been following this since being developed. Was wondering if, since what appears that you have an "flying model", would it be possible to release what you currently have and update whenever possible? Yes, Red Wings is supposedly coming out w/ their version (someday) and not fair giving ALL THE WORK that you've put into this so my thinking would be to release what you created (as long as its flyable/solid). Hell, releases of aircraft that's from FSX are being reworked to some degree to work in MS20 sooo why not? I would suppose that no weather at the very least would have to apply in order to work as is......
