    Been loving the Jug.

    Anyone working on or planning more repaints? Jankees? dvj?

    I'm hoping someone would take an interest in doing "Tallahassee Lassie". Any takers??

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try,try again. ... or go read the manual.

    Looks like it needs a Environment map with more color and contrast, and more light in the specular file, and slightly less reflection.

    Now where IS that "like" button? The P-47, such an iconic WWII aircraft, deserves it.

    Is it fixable?

    Yes. You can replace the environment map or alter it, and the spec file can be darkened (the spec alpha as well if possible). The alpha channel is only active on the interior model so don't waste time trying to edit that for the external. On the restored Dottie Mae the spec metal is white which is why it shines so much.

    What stands out most for me are the red and yellow stripes/accents. They seem really washed out and almost semi-transparent.

    The point of it all is that there is a paint kit. If people don't like certain aspects of a livery or texture effect, they can change it. It is all subjective. There is no "fix" per se. If you don't like the free liveries, don't download them.

    Exactly. Well said Bazz.

    No disagreement here assuming one knows what they're doing. I'm still learning which is why I ask questions.

    Who said that?? I missed that post.

    For the record, I love the P-47 and appreciate the free liveries and am hoping for more. Just a few, I'm not greedy.
