I have gone back and re-worked a paint job that I had done a long time ago. Now the lines are better 'cause I have learned much about PaintShop Pro since creating the original artwork!



The other big thing has been the addition of sound effects. When you operate a switch it really clicks, and I also created an effect that I have never heard before, but it is very common in the real world. I am amazed that nobody has done it before...it is getting tested tonight by one of my minions :d

that is a real smooth customer you got there, Pal - and speaking of customers....

so whats the sound effect eh?

something rattles a moment as the engine catches or shuts down? thats pretty common and I've yet to hear it in FSX

I'm surprised no one else has offered up a guess as to what your new sound effect is, Robert

is it airframe, powerplant, or comm related?

February 23rd, 2009, 05:04
Really starting to shape up isn't it? Looks great. Keep up the good work.

February 23rd, 2009, 08:32
hmmm.... I wonder what it could be... (can imagine alot... :d ).

I love that cowling. Well modelled.

The fart of fear? :bs:
(Best use of bs smilie award contender?)

February 23rd, 2009, 15:07
would that fall under the catagory of a PIO???

or an unsafe exhaust emission in the cockpit? :faint:

February 23rd, 2009, 15:11
That's what the flatulameter is for...:greenf:

February 23rd, 2009, 15:25
and that big fan out in front :wavey:

February 23rd, 2009, 15:50
You have minions Robert?? :costumes:

Looking sharp, that paint is a head turner for sure.

Feel like I could just get in and go. :)

The anti collision/beacon light's rotation or flashing bleeding into the intercom? They all sound a little different, but in nearly every GA aircraft I've been in it's there. I tried to think of a noise activated by a switch that noone's done. I always enjoy setting off for a night IFR flight and check all the lights while listening to the noises they make.

To those who don't know: Most of the time, you can only hear it when the engine's off, but in some aircraft you can hear it when you're in cruise flight. You get used to it after a while. I love listening to other people call center while theirs bleeds through too.

Nope...It's only heard at one point in the flight :d

February 23rd, 2009, 19:44
The sound of the seat belt buckling?

February 23rd, 2009, 20:27
The sound of the seat belt buckling?

or sound of seat buckling under overweight pilot??

February 23rd, 2009, 21:10
The sound of a thousand woes as someone asks for that obscure tri-engined version with floats?

February 23rd, 2009, 21:27
Ticking of a cooling engine?


February 23rd, 2009, 22:19
Ticking of a cooling engine?


That was my guess...



February 24th, 2009, 00:08
Would it be the sound of the seatbelt ripping due to the overweight pilot while inverted? :gossip:

Oh wait, there isnít a pilot yet. J

Itís hard for me to explain just how smooth everything is with this machine. All I can say is that it is, VERY, top quality smooth.:faint:<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

is it the sound of me losing my dignity?:help:

There comes a point where it ain't just a repaint anymore!!!

You already made an islander, why can't you make one that has four engines, an AWACS antenna, floats, a refueling probe plus bombs and missiles? It can't be that bad to add, right?
