    hi

    is it possible to adapt the track builder to make models for flight simulations
    that include runways/ taxiways ... and such objects

    then export the result to a 3d model software like blender for more modeling and texturing


    thanks and good day

    yes it's possible - you can export your project in directx (X files) and import these files in 3DS max with PandaXport ..or other importer for this files :)

    good ...

    one remaining question :

    - does the exporter export the complete track, i mean 3d models/textured/.... etc ?

    Some free versions of 3dSimed can't import .X files. You can then export the track to rFactor and import gmt's. You will recognise track, terrain, walls, objects and S-objects by file names. The other way is to export in parts - especially objects - you would have to delete some of them from btb temporarily to avoid quesing which ones you take. 3dSimed recognises textures, but for using them later in Max, I suggest to name the textures in 8.3 format at the beginning.

    I just got the message from the good people that it's 100% better to import from rFactor gmt's - this way you can repair broken strings from materials in Max! When you import .X to 3dSimed - it's a trap... :)
