    Talented texture artist(s) required

    Hi folks, I am currently in need of a texture artist to help complete three freeware projects I've had stalled for too long (C-119 Boxcar, Navion 'A' model and an as yet undisclosed project). Many of you will know I was the team lead on the Ryan Navion 'B' model and the FSX conversion of Milton Shupe's Grumman Mallard (both aircraft available here at SOH only).

    The Boxcar is complete apart from the textures and some minor coding clean up work to remove test gauges etc. and the manual (which I can't complete until the interior textures are done as I need those for the screenshots).

    The Navion 'A' is complete apart from the textures, pilot figures and manual (manual requirements as above).

    Project 'X' is 95% complete apart from the textures, pilot figures and manual (manual requirements as above).

    Interested parties must have the ability to work from nothing but the UVW mapping sheets (i.e. no paint kit) and be able to create both external and internal diffuse, specular and bump textures (including alphas where required) to FSX standards. Some textures do exist for these projects (mostly VC panels, temporary placeholders, etc.) but most will have to be re-worked or created new from scratch.

    Having the ability to use TeamSpeak 3 would be an advantage as it allows live communications and file transfers between users which is a major bonus to productivity when working on projects as a team.

    As this is for freeware projects there is no pay, just the satisfaction of working on aircraft that have been missing from flight sims for too long.

    If you would like to get involved in these projects either reply here or PM me for more info. It may be that more than one person is interested and there is a possibility that different projects could be worked on by different people concurrently in order to get them completed in a timely manner.

    I'm looking forward to getting these projects moving again.

    I have not spoken to Roman in a couple of months but we both understood that all I had to do was rattle his cage when the project was moving forward again and he would be back to sort out his code stuff. I have his email address and I know he answers PMs here and over at FSDev so I'm sure hell be back on board as soon as I contact him.

    I think it depends on your time line...The boxcar really interests me. But I've got 5 projects going right now...I may not be the best bet to start something from scratch for you. But I think a concerted effort from multiple artist fronts might get things moving quickly. For example, the B-26 from Milton. I did just the bumps and a base metal scheme. Where Duckie had taken a lot of time to get the panel lines correct. I can certainly do it from scratch, but I don't have that kind of time ATM.

    Thanks for the reply Rick. There is no timeline on any of the aircraft and they will be done when they are done, that has always been the stance I have taken as I know what it's like and I had burn-out for a while myself. Ed (Falcon409) did one paint for the Boxcar (USAF) that we used in testing/development but it has no panel/rivet lines and no bumps or specs. Primarily that is what the Boxcar needs on the outside (other schemes can then be completed easily once the panel lines and rivets are done) while the inside has paint but it will need to be redone by a new artist.

    The other aircraft have paint on them that would need to be re-done so it's not like it's starting from nothing. The Navion 'A' has specs and bumps and Project 'X' needs panel lines, specs and bumps for one texture sheet and a re-work of the specs and bumps on another.

    Just a bump to see if anyone is interested in getting these aircraft out.

    I can help with textures on the 119. I have lots of photos and a couple RL Boxes close to me for walkarounds

    LOL....nothing like picking an easy one to start with Pam!

    You are aware that I didn't model the Shadow and Stinger versions aren't you although I do have the pilot's manual for the AC-119G.

    There is currently only one scheme (USAF) that we used during development/testing but there are plans for more including a request (or two) for Cabbie from the 'Planes' movie!

    I did a rendition of that (posted it in here somewhere), but it needs to have one of the talented livery artists to make it come alive. Mine was just a one-off for something else to fly while we were testing. Definitely needs to be one of the first liveries though.

    Making some headway already. Laying down some lines and rivets. Added a little color also for testing.

    Maybe Bulldog can join in? A quick paint I did for the default FS9, but should work on Craig's native conversion if you flip them.

    If I can help out with the FDE let me know. My work can be experienced on many Virtavia aircraft.

    I like it! It would be neat to end up with the full set of aircraft from both movies and then organize a mass MP event! I haven't actually seen either of the movies, just clips on YouTube, but I definitely want to see the Fire and Rescue one, it looks hilarious.

    Milton did the FDE we are currently using which is basically whatever AirWrench spat out and then tweaked a bit. It's not bad but another set of experienced eyes would be appreciated. I will shoot you a PM and thanks for the offer.
