Yes, I noticed that too. There was a slight incline from the forward superstructure to the stem, and I have modeled it.

Okay guys, I have bit of a problem here. I can't export the Normandie. Its too much for my PC. I did find another (much faster)
converter called DirectX (xExporter) but even then, I can't explode all the components in Sketch Up, the computer gets stuck halfway through the process. Can anyone with a computer good enough convert her for me?
The specs of my current PC are, a Pentium IV 3.0 Ghz processor, 1GB RAM, and 256 MB VGA (obviously outdated, its 6 yrs old. But i'll be getting a new PC this January).
If anyone can do it, please PM me. I want to release a beta before this December.
Thanks.

Okay guys, things are looking up. Expect a beta soon! :D ( This is an edit as i had submitted the same post twice ;) ) but things really are looking brighter. If all goes well, I can upload a beta before the 10th of December. (I'll have to 'cause the exams are starting this December)

The file size is a bit largish, so if it runs slow, delete the lights.x file for better performance.

Well, this will be my last post for sometime, my O/L exams are starting tomorrow. Wish me luck! and of course, post your comments on the beta. Hope you enjoy it :D

I'm glad to see that you could get it converted to VS on your computer.

Oh no, I didn't. Venjs converted her for me. Does she run good enough? I've got my new computer and she gives 29-31 fps, a vast improvement over the previous 2 fps.
