Thanks. I got it. Converted to 3ds. But got some issues. In the conversion some of the textures got converted.



So I may need to retexture:( Also this dds didnot load.

Never mind I got it. So to make it work in orbiter I need to separate each part into different materials/textures.

The main body will be next. Do you have images of your finished model so I can compare. ANd because 5-6 images were merged I need to re-texture those. Mainly the camera,mast, bridge at the rear,.....

i don't have the image yet but it has a RIMFAX on the bottom back of the rover https://www.hou.usra.edu/meetings/ipm2016/pdf/4031.pdf and a golden bellypan on the bottom of the rover
coloured green in the diagram

and also the supercam itself i didn't texture it, i use some black lining parts and some circle parts to make it stand out

This is what I so far. I am at a standstill. Can you send me the mast and camera and arm in fbx? Rename the texture so that the converter will not merge them




See the bridge arm mast used textures that were merged in the conversation

So these are the parts I can finish as i don't have the texture. The convert process merge 5-6 textures.


This is what I so far:


not sure about the arms and drill seem very little textures?



so I get MARS 202,NASA-MAR, as textures

John the chopper lays on its side and the Y frame is a folding launch structure to hold the top as it unlocks and folds the chopper rotates up and unfolds its Blades then as it takes off the legs fold down and lock

Where did that image come from?
So the supercam is not textured. So is the head of the arm textured

this is what I have so far:

Good to see some progress on this important up coming mission. I'm hoping brianj will help with the launch and landing and I think gattis has done the back shell and cruise stage. I do have a more detailed LZ and have run a rover round some but the rover needs to be elevated a little.
with such a tumultuous year Crew Dragon and Mars 2020 might save the year for all of us, it reminds me of 1968 and Apollo 8. Thank all you guys for bringing this to life for all of us.

I found a problem. engine thrust value = 0
file Config\Vessels\mars_orange or mars_lava
MaxMainThrust = 0
MaxRetroThrust = 0
MaxHoverThrust = 0
MaxAttitudeThrust = 0
therefore the engines are so weak

im having a problem with the controls hmmm. pressing 1 and 2 activates the laser and off. I can also fire up the control window to control all bits and parts of the rover. But I cannot get thrust on it. Is there something I should do, or look into the files ? thanks guys

So it looks like it is a modified GV. So up arrow forward gear.5 neutral. and down arrow reverse and then use + key to increase speed.

It would be nice to have an updated mesh,....
