It's probably just my ISP lagging ;) thanks for pointing that out

I was using multiple textures on the MD11's fuselage at first but then switch to a single gigantic texture (4096X1024). There is no difference between them performance wise. However, I would advise you to use one single texture for the sake of maintance (such as creating a new livery). This is the very reason I switch to using a single texture.

Is it better to use a singles texture, or separate fuselage texture from
other pieces?

For now, i'll be sticking to a single texture, easier to manage and to use indeed :)

I'm still very confused with the axis used, and the model is appearing behind the actual FDM A/C

values used are:
  AC_CGLOC     921.1  0.0 -18.0
  AC_AERORP    921.1  0.0  0.0
  AC_EYEPTLOC  0.0 -30.0 75.0
  AC_VRP       0.0 0.0 0.0
the  3d model has nose at (0,0,0)

I understand it this way, please correct what's wrong:

AC_CGLOC - this is the center of gravity, from which all other points are related to
AC_AERORP - aerodynamic reference, should be near the CG, so it has a similar value
AC_EYEPTLOC - this is where the view is placed when in cockpit view, related to(??) CG (??)
AC_VRP - point related to the CG where the nose of the 3d model should be
A 3d model with nose made at (0,0,0) in the editor should have a VRP of (0,0,0) and this should be enough to position the model properly

Thanks in advance,
