|FSDS to MDL Tutorial|
A common question that is occuring now for Aircraft developers is how to port their project from FS Design Studio to GMax that is included with Flight Simulator 2002 Professional.

REQUIRED FSDS PLUGIN
This plugin that we need to obtain is CVA's import/export module for FS Design Studio. This plugin will allow us to export our project from FSDS to a dxf file. Below is the link to CVA's web page.
Follow the included instructions to install the plugins. Also go into FSDS and select CVA Prefs from the Plugins menu and configure it the same as Pic 1.
