    Hi does anyone know if rFactor supports 6 wheels?

    I am trying to see if I can make double decker buses lol

    I tried with F1C, and the game did not support 6 wheels

    zomg it works!???

    ok i am going to try to port my F1C car over lol

    It's just for personal fun with some really amature modelling.

    Too bad the racesimcentral forum is down, or i might be able to dig up some pics i took before lol.

    Hi again,

    So I was trying to change the original MTS files into GMT files... and I used Zmodeler to import the MTS file and export them as 3DS files. After that I am suppose to use 3ds max to export the 3ds files as GMTfiles.... however, my 3dsmax does not have GMT file export option.

    Is there a way to get the needed files for my 3ds max to export as GMT files?

    My 3ds max is the 2009 version.

    Or is there another program to do the same thing?

    anyways, this is what i am trying get into the game.

    While I am at it, where can I get the Tyrell you showed above? I just want to look at how they deal with the physics files to make 6 wheels work.

    it's a plug-in that you need to download (don't have a link to hand)... pretty sure it only works with v6 and v7 of max too...

    Could anyone point me to where i can get the plugin for GMT export?

    Now i am using Max 6

    I have got the GMT2-Wizard_V1.14, ModdingMax_101, importGMT2 into max just fine, but where exactly can i export as GMT??

    GMT still isn't there in the EXPORT option.

    Finally bus in the game

    Hi! So I was finally able to make my car into the game. However, the middle set of tires are rotating around at the wrong pivot (as shown below). I have tried to move the wheels' pivot to the center of the wheels, and move the car's pivot to where the middle wheels are, but it did not make a difference.

    Is there a place where I can define where the auxillary wheels' locations are?

    Thanks

    I have other buses waiting as well. But I want to make sure that I can make 6 wheels work first. Just a warning, this is purely for fun as I am a bus lover, but also a absolute noob in modeling.

    Anyways, does anyone know how to fix my mid wheel problem?
