    Lots of fun and games....but I've managed to get the light sequence right for the Flaps Indicator to match the VC....and the AOA Indexer dimmer switch dims.... There's a floating sight in the hud too. All the steam gauges match the VC as do the glass ones . Eventually it'll be effectively a 2D copy of the default FA18 VC. It's all one tiny victory over another ....;)

    This isn't so much a 2D for the Yak as a 2D version of the FA18...as that's what it's from. Took a bit of xml writing new ones, but now I've matched the steam gauges from the VC...Fuel Alt, Airspeed, and VSI. More to do, as always...;)

    Decided that 2 years later I could improve it a little....original bmp was a bland screencap....so used a better one...;)

    Suddenly realized I'd already done a 2D ver of the MS FA18 ....about 2 years ago.... Dragged it screaming across to the 130 and here it is...

    A 'very' early screenie of what the 2D panel might end up ....coming from a screencap of the VC of the standard MS FA18. Early days...but the Hud's working fine...;)

    Huub....it gets worse. What part that was supposedly the right wing leading edge but wasn't....would you believe that was only the case for 95% of it. In fact...the right-most bit is actually the first 5% of the right wing leading edge...closest to the root. Only the other 95% is 'nothing'. Menef ...I think this might have been one of Hadi's first aircraft...and he'd moved on to others before a bit more effort had been put into it. The standard VC is a little wanting...and I'm in the throes of not just aliasing the MS FA18 VC to it...but also creating a 'matching' 2D panel to suit. The Yak's a glass cockpit and it has 2 motors...so the 18 isn't too far wrong. Being native it's simple enough to add whatever VC is preferred.

    Yep, found yet another anomaly. I'd assumed the leading edges and wing flap edges were adjacent to their respective wings. They're not. Looks like what I thought was the right wing edge is in fact a 'nothing' and the right edge is painted by the left - reversed. And the trailing edge of the wings seen when the flaps are lowered are back to front....left drawn on the right and right drawn on the left. Sigh....

    I strongly doubt any flying plane is ever wrapped. They'll all be painted. Static/display maybe.

    Canopy glass still has cloud issues...so not quite 'native', but nice looking plane all the same....;)

    OK....that was less than ideal. The same colour square in that bmp that defines the cockpit glass colour also defines the torpedo and rocket hard points. Result is....if the glass is transparent then so are the hardpoints. Looks like it's going to be an either-or situation...;)

    I think I got the attachment right ....just add the bmp in the zip to each texture folder and overwrite the old.

    The VC glass is fine...it's the exterior that isn't.....looks opaque brown.... Give me a minute....I might have a fix. Edit....how's this? quick and easy....not refined for colour/trans... but it's a straight alpha issue with the fbdbandp.bmp ...

    Prototype paint is finished.....here it is getting up out of YMML . Worked out what that logo was on the fuse side...."Russian Defence Export". I might have a go at the Aermacchi ver as well since that's equally NQR for the model.

    Couple steps forward...couple steps back. Brain fade saw me messing with the wrong layer. Light at the end of the tunnel though.

    Nah....Brad's been relatively 'hands off' from Wincustomize for the last 10 years or so. These days you're more likely to find him on Stardock's Gaming Forums ... <---- Note....no smiley, Bjoern ...;)

    Cheating a bit on this one....it's a prototype ver I think before Aermacchi split and did their own version. So the real plane was shorter in the nose . You can see the 'splits' in the paint model layout that tend to make camo particularly trial-and-error. A ways to go yet.

    Ah...that wasn't there on my previous post....shall have a look... The ;) I always use is force of habit....when you're a site Admin for 6.5 million users you try not to come across as "that fascist bastard admin of Wincustomize.com" , so a smiley lightens the tone ...;)

    I did 2 paints 4 years ago ...long enough ago I can't remember how much pain it was... but from the WIPs it looks like I reverse engineered existing paints rather than compiling the paintkit into multi-layers....though these days that'd be my plan of attack as it would definitely be the easier way...;) 2 'fakes' ...a 'contemporary' RAAF one...and likewise a Qantas one...;)
