Yes the texturing is a real pain. I also have the problem, that whatever 3D software I use it crashes really often. This makes the whole thing alot more problematic.
This is not specifically for some programs, it happens really with any 3D program. I think the Intel MHD 4500 in my laptop with it's shared memory is the problem. I have read in some forums of different CAD-software about problems resulting in CTD with the use of this integrated graphic chip.
Sadly I can not use my workstation at the moment, because it's a part of my homecockpit now. I have integrated it behind the pit to use it as a second seat for the WSO (my son)
and therefor started to connect both systems together (HOTAS
controls, LAN, some of the electronics, audio system etc.), but I'm nowhere near finishing it.
Here in the forum are some photos of my project called "Universal Cockpit Project" in the "Flight Sim Pit Builders" threat. There you can see what I mean and why I could not use this system at the moment. Besides this I have nearly no place to put a seat anywhere at this workstation cause every gap of my living room is filled with boxes containing parts of the cockpit. I only could work at my couch at the moment. My girlfriend really loves this
I really have to finish some work at the pit, so that some of the boxes could be removed. A two-room apartment isn't the right place for having such a hobby, but it was the dream of my past twenty years.
