    I've been doing a lot more reading as an incidental diversion from other research. We're planning a trip, mostly around the area of the Battle of the Somme this spring (in part as it's the 100th anniversary). Much of the land surrounding the Canadian Memorial at Vimy is 'off limits' due to UXO. One B&B we are thinking of using has excavated and restored trenches and have a (closed) access on their property to a bunker/supply tunnel where UXO have been found. It's all been very enlightening. Guess there will be no random trekking across the fields :redfire: Hopefully it will include a pleasant detour to see the gathering to recognize the 100th ann. of the Caudron Brothers Flying School at Le Crotoy (near Abbevillle) and a trip across Belgium to Amsterdam.

    If you accidentally use a flipped texture, you can't miss that fact. Don't ask how I know... LOL

    I'm not a painter. Following these posts and looking at the screenshots has me in awe of what you guys are doing. These new skins look fantastic, and your discussions are adding a whole new awareness and dimension of what goes into them. Thanks for everyone's efforts. Much appreciated. Cheers :very_drunk:

    Ran into pretty much the same thing years ago with a Paul Rebuffat Spitfire texture. It was for a highly polished post war Spitfire and took a special model for the reflectivity. If used with one of his regular models, I got the "glass skin" effect. I suspect that with this Mig, the textures aren't supposed to be as shiny as that Spit was so it isn't as see through as the Spit was. Edit: I was a bit surprised to find out I still have that Spitfire in FS9. Here are some shots of it's textures in DXT/Bmp Note how much darker the alpha channel is in the upper right corner of DXT/Bmp than the shots of the Mig posted earlier. I'm pretty darn sure that if the alpha layer is removed, the transparency will go away.

    It's a lot more widespread than most people think. A quick look at Wiki yielded this: France and Belgium- "In the forests of Verdun French government "démineurs" working for the Département du Déminage still hunt for poisonous, volatile, and/or explosive munitions and recover about 900 tons every year. The most feared are corroded artillery shells containing chemical warfare agents such as mustard gas." (That's mostly WWI ordinance) Laos- "Some 288 million cluster munitions and about 75 million unexploded bombs were left across Laos after the war ended. From 1996–2009, more than 1 million items of UXO were destroyed, freeing up 23,000 hectares of land. Between 1999 and 2008, there were 2,184 casualties (including 834 ...

    Just wanted to say hi, and wish you a wonderful upcoming week. Next Friday, my sister Melissa (who lives in Indianapolis) is driving down here to my place. We will leave Saturday morning for Sanibel Island, Fl, to stay at a condo she has...until 7 Sept. Really looking forward to the trip. Besides us, we're taking her dog (Golden Doodle) Bella, and my Rottweiler, "Chief"....... Hugs. Peter
