Since we have clean forum right now I think I have to post at least one picture of my PZL-130 Orlik ;)

I'm working on the VC textures.

Wow Empeck, that is pretty amazing. :ernae:

Is it in Beta testing yet, and if so how is that going?

Congrats on a good job done sir!

empeck
October 3rd, 2008, 15:37
thanks guys :)

stiz - :kilroy:

Marlin - no, not yet. I have rudimentary flight model, but gauges and switches doesn't work yet.

deimos256 - sign up on Avsim - you'll need an account over there to download this plane 'when it's done'. :)

That looks great Mike!! :ernae: I've been following your WIP thread at Freeflight Design forums. How's performance so far.....? ..... and also dare I ask....when? :icon_lol: I'm looking forward to it anyway....keep up the good work.

empeck
October 4th, 2008, 03:11
Thanks :)

Rob - right now performance is as good as default planes without glass cockpit - Maule or Baron, and better than F/A-18 or Agusta-Westland. For 2048x2048 textures version I recommend at least 512MB video card though.

I'm going to make installer with two textures resolutions - 2048x2048 and 1024x1024.

I was hoping to release this plane at the and of the year, but it probably will be delayed.

There is a progress, I've been working on Orlik lately. I have few new manuals for avionics, radiostack. Unfortunately I'm working on xml code and I can't show it on the screenshots ;) I'm also re-working normal and specular maps to make them look more real. It won't be soon, but project is certainly not abandoned. I can't wait to make a video and show you all how the switches work...

Sorry to disappoint you guys, but there wasn't any movement these days. I'm working on my professional portfolio lately. I have to make a website with my 3d artwork.

Brilliant work there!

To give credit where it's clearly due:

I can't stand cartoony dash textures. You've nailed the right look!! I absolutely love that baked-on look that you've got going on. :salute:

empeck
May 23rd, 2010, 04:31
Thanks. Lighting in current-gen game engines is to weak to produce nice soft lighting. That's why shading added to color texture is essential. This is the same reason why I don't like textures based straight on photos. Phototexture just doesn't work with specular, normalmaps, reflections and dynamic light. It may look good on screenshots, but not in movement.

Dito that.

I think "Some1" was the one doing the Iskra. He occasionally posts here, so ask him at the next opportunity.

I'm pretty sure it was Rick Piper who did the Skysim Hawk.

Still looking forward to the Orlik, Empeck! I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

peter12213

Ah I thought I could remeber when the hawk came out he posted some pics on the same thread of the iskra, but It musn't have been the same guy then!

Empeck my friend I believe this to be the finest freeware ever to be released and thats before it even comes out, absolutely stunning work! :salute:

WOW!!!

That radio input is awesome, and the programmable channel thing is great too.

We have PET2000's (portable backup transmitters) at work and you can input the frequency the same way

empeck

Unfortunately it works per session only. I'm not a C++ programmer, I've just learned how to make scripts in XML. So, sorry, but no Accusim for this one :(

Who cares, just from that radio video it is clear you've put a lot of love into this thing. It looks wonderful! Can't wait!

Not only is the systems modeling great, but I actually love the way you do your textures, there excellent, yet you retain great framerates even on lower spec systems, it really reminds me of Lotus who's style of ... can't think of the words but developing, crafting maybe, aircraft are very similar! Really one of my most eagerly awaited releases, the PZL-130 Orlik is just a stunning little trainer and I can't wait to fly her!

I have this as my desktop and still get exited evertime I look at it!

I agree with Peter...and I'll go as far as to say that I'd be glad to send some cash your way, even if just the cost of another payware item...just as a thank you. :salute:

Lovely stuff. Not a fan of messing around with all the buttons and exploring the systems myself, but I can still appreciate that a lot of time and effort has gone into this, and can tell it's going to be a top quality addon.

The overall appearance is exceptionally good anyway, so you've catered for my tastes already!

Sorry guys. I've just lost my job today, I'll probably have to relocate to another place few hundreds kilometers from where I live, where I won't have my development computer until I find a job and new home again. Orlik is on hold until then. It will be few months, maybe a half of year when I'll be able to work on it again.

I lost my job last April and I was out of work for five months until the same company asked me to come back and here I am still. Because of the greed of global bankers we are in a world recession and no one's job is secure. I wish you all the best empeck and hope you manage to find employment soon.

I completely understand that as well, Empeck.
Lost my job a year ago this month.
"Times are tough"... blah blah blah...
Went almost 10 months unemployed.
Good jobs are tough to get in this town right now.

Thankfully I'm at least part time now with a really great company.
And I'll have opportunities with them, might need to move as well too.
Hold on, knowing that a great community of folks here at the SOH have you in their thoughts and prayers. :salute:

I know I'm a thread reviver... and I know that Michael is working with A2A now but I was wondering if perhaps the PZL will be released as payware through A2A or Aircraft factory at some point? It was a very nice looking model and I'd buy it!
