    Rotohub did an excellent job with shaping this model using AC3D I think; very true to the drawings and yes, the mesh looks great. My role was simply animations and mapping, plus the FS9 setup.

    Mudmoving 2.0! :wavey: Cees Edit: did a bit more research this time. The planks were horizonal, not vertical as I had at first. The windows are more like the originals now. Also the back of the hangar is more like the Original.

    FS9 modeling is done. Rotohub is still working diligently on textures and has come a long way. We have basic gauges in place but some of the gauge bmps need to be updated ... in due time. Here I am doing some FSX testing; works great in FS9 too. :-) The exterior base textures look good.

    I also notice that your Apply button is greyed out. That is usually because you do not have an object selected. Look at my example above. I do NOT have an object selected either and my Apply button is greyed out, although I have buttons available that you do not. Compare my screen shot with yours for differences. I am running the FS9 SDK, gmax 1.2. Now, try re-selecting your object to Apply.

    Well, finally got the interior and VC modeled and animated and last remaining items added to the exterior model. So, we move to the mapping preparation stage. That will take a couple days for prep, and mapping another day. Once that is done and while waiting for textures development, I will work on the panel gauges and flight modeling.

    We do have a texture plan and hopefully it will get started sometime in the next 2 weeks. Meanwhile I have been sailing around Port Hardy, Ketchikan (PAKT), Stewart, Bella Coola, Hope, AK, Anchorage, Friday Harbor, and various rivers in BC. In spite of what you have seen, the proper ensign of England will be flown in either white, red, or blue, depending. :-) Don't mind the temporary textures here; just playing. Sorry to keep posting teasers but I assure you the Bounty is in progress, as is the Harpoon, the Mallard, the Lodestars, the AC685 Rockwell Aero Commander, and the Pinto, all active.

    Do you have the object(s) selected to apply to at this point? I select the objects, go get the map/material (or create one) with the Navigator, then apply.

    I had something similar a few weeks ago; one BSOD and after that Windows ran as slow as 'stront door een trechter' ... Ended up reinstalling W7, thankfully I keep W7 on it's own SSD and everything else on seperate HHD's. Still had to reinstall all my games and sims though. AC does have it's qualities, the possibility of user made mods being a big one IMHO! There are plenty of very nice cars already avaliable, you can find a lot in the official forums.

    Do you want a sim or a game..? Sims: GT Legends, GTR2, GTR Evolution, Race On, Raceroom experience (Free basic game!), iRacing, Assetto Corsa and soon project Cars are all available through Steam. And then there's rFactor and rFactor2, and WRC 1-4 for Rallying. Games: Need For Speed, the crew, Grid, Shift 1&2 (Though these can be modded to be more sim like), Codemasters F1 2010-2014, test drive unlimited. Codemasters' Dirt games are fun but used games for windows live which is now defunct and Codemasters have not yet supplied a solution. There's a logn list of NASCAR games/sims out there: But I have very little experience with those since Nascar raacing 2 from '96.

    The number of pixels per inch/meter is key. So, to get high resolution, you must map so that the pixels per inch/foot/meter are sufficient to give the required resolution. Divide your object length or width by the pixel width of your bmp to get the result. For large exterior scenery objects, or close up detail like in cockpits, you need more pixels per unit to get that resolution. For a 20 meter wide fence, for example, using a 1024 X 1024 bmp, you have only 51 pixels per meter to give detail (1.3 pixels per inch or 15.6 per foot).

    Here's what you get when you set the weather to 'Thunderstorm': The weather and 24-hour clock are two more advantages Pcars has over AC IMHO.

    Hey Rob, heb je al gezien dat de Aeroplane Monthly een artikel heeft over de Uiver?
    Waarschijnlijk ligt het blad volgende week wel in de winkels.


  5. OK, ik zie 't wel.
    Wat voor concert??
    En de Uiver had pech?

  6. View Conversation
    Hey Rob, foto's van de open dagen komen er hopelijk vanmiddag aan; ik heb ook nog even een concertje vanavond dus niet veel tijd om 1350 foto's uit te zoeken. Show viel wat tegen, aangezien het meeste klassieke spul (Inlcusief de Uiver!) met pech aan de grond stonden. Het weer viel ook wat tegen, vooral de eerste dag. Toch nog flink verbrand, maar ja..
