Hi Everyone I'm Trying to build a steam loco for ts2018. The problem I am have is that the wheels rotate on the wrong axis all the time. I tried searches in google and not come up with anything. Please could one of you help with this. I am using 3ds max 2015.
Thanks Colin

Hi, and happy new year. I just saw this post.

There's a couple of issues that might be at play here. First of all, try resetting the xForm on the axis. If the problem persists, why not show a screenshot of the way it's set up in max? Make sure to display the pivot :).

OK So I've sorted the pivots out so that the wheels rotate the correct way, but now I'm
having trouble with the connecting rods which rotate correctly in 3ds max but are rotating with the wheels
in the game and not staying level, I have the pivots set to same as the wheels.
Please could someone help me.
Cheers Colin

I had worked on a loco sometime ago.
I had been watching it before I made.
