Accepting Paint Requests*

17 posts in this topic

I've been gone a while, but now I've "returned". This topic is for paint requests for MyTraffic, but this is the order of precedence that I would consider requests:

1. Missing airlines (currently active)

2. Missing paints, i.e. airline that flies B738 but has not been painted on that type.

3. Paints currently in MyTraffic that could use a redo. Airlines that do not match well across different models, perhaps. UPS 767 is a good example of this, in 5.4a.

4. Special livery paints. Will consider these on a case-by-case basis - can be very difficult.

5. Missing paints (defunct airlines).

I would especially like to know about the first two items because I really have no source of info on what's going on in the airline industry unless it's local... :cool:

Dear Ben, many of us here still remember you beautiful contribution, so here in public a cordial "Welcome back"!

I'm just releasing the first beta version of MyTraffic 5.4b, which again contains improved real life schedules. This process automatically generates lists of paints with the numbers of flights they can be seen on, and more than 100 new paints will come in 5.4b with all those on top of the list - I can provide a list of what will not be in there, sorted by priority, be aware

a ) it is long, about 6000 paints on it, and

b ) many on the list just are generated as a bug in the data, as a code share running with flight numbers out of the usual range, as a short term lease (you will see Swiss Boeing 737-300 on the list, the flights really exist as Swiss flights, but are operated on behalf of SWR by Lufthansa crew and aircraft) - so this is a really interesting research job sometimes to find out if the remainders are really true - sometimes this research takes me more time than the actual painting.

I will follow this topic and jump in if the paint has already be done in the meantime. Thank you very much for this generous offer here. What I always doubt is how big is demand for historical paints. We still have some old paint jobs on FS9 models - just a question of time to make these, I would love to get rid of them, so maybe I also compile a list if these here - if we could get rid of them for version 5.5 this would be great, and any type that can be simplified would also be great.

Thank you again

Burkhard

You mean the US based leisure carrier? Its in MyTraffic with 757s, but were flying 727s in another livery earlier, also DC10s...

Or do you mean the current cargo operator that has B747, B757 and DC8-73, a very demanding livery?

OK, I will follow this topic. I have some other work to do in the meantime, so I'll pop back in here after that's been done.

The U.S. carrier from the 1970's.

I think Pan Am bought them.

Hi1pie (Can't seem to find your name :razz: )

Do you send your repaints directly to Burkhard? I ask, because I would love to see your paints as they get done - it's encouraging and stimulating to see how another painter has overcome a certain tricky problem. I find it especially difficult to produce really nice paint-jobs on Burkhards AI models because a 1024x1024 map is a really small canvas.

Ben (BadDog73),

It's great to hear from you again. Welcome back. Can't wait to see your latest paints here on the forum.

Yes, I send them directly through to burkhard via a PM, I should start a Paint Thread but you will probably see nothing from me for V5.5 because i lost a ZIP file that contained all my paints :mad: :oops:

If you ask nicely, I'm sure Burkhard would send the zips back to you.

Come on, work für 5.5 starts now...

Zu Befehl, Chef. Bin gleich da mit neuen Lakierungen.
