Static Aircraft .mdl Maker

Status and Known Issues

Current Release: Version 2.2.02

Issues/Problems in Current Release: - No Issues reported.

Should you encounter an aircraft that does not convert properly, you are welcome to e-mail me your aircraft folder for the problem aircraft or a link to the (freeware) aircraft in some file library together with a detailed description of the problem. If the problem is due to a shortcoming in SAMM, I'll attempt to fix it or suggest a work-around. But, before contacting me, please check that the problem aircraft is rendered properly by FlightSim in its intended use.

While I am interested in hearing about aircraft that do not readily convert, please be aware, due to the flexibility available to aircraft developers, individual control surfaces or other animations may not render in the expected position without you modifying aircraft parameters or global variables. As described in the User Manual, SAMM fully supports parameter/global variable modification, but it's up to you to determine what needs changing and how. I am not able to assist you in this or in otherwise troubleshooting an aircraft.


Static Aircraft .mdl Maker is "freeware". As such, support is limited. However, I will respond to your queries/problem reports - at least with an acknowledgement - and make a reasonable attempt to resolve any problems reported. Please do not report problems/issues in other than the latest release.


Support Forum: Static Aircraft .mdl Maker's support forum is located area at http://fsdeveloper.com. Please direct your problem reports and suggestions for improvement there. But, before reporting a problem/issue, please check to see if it has previously been reported. As well, the "stickys" at the top of forum highlight potential difficulties caused by other software/add-ons that may be contributing to your difficulty.

When you report problems, please include all relevant details. The exact error message that you received (if applicable) and a summary of what you were doing at the time are likely to be particularly helpful. Depending on the nature of the problem, please consider attaching a screenshot.
