Austin 3D Users Group Meeting -  Wed. April 25, 2007 at 6:30 pm
ITT Technology Center, 6330 Highway 290 East Suite 150, Austin, TX 78723.

Re-scheduled for this month: Tsuyoshi Kawahito of Third Wire Productions
Subject: 3D Modeling and Animation for Flight Simulator Games.

T.K. and his guys open their flight simulator games to their users for extensive modifications and enhancements. In December '06, they published on line their exporter for Max 9 and according to their on-line forum it is being widely used to extend and excite their simulations. One guy was going to government reports on nuclear weapons to get more realistic descriptions of flash, fireball and cloud effects so he could nuke his opponents in complete authenticity. Third Wire has a very active, creative user base that is participating in extending the realism of their games. They also have a very exciting rendition of World War I aerial combat that you should look at. This will be an interesting presentation.
