  1. No, don't worry then, Adam, - I need the 727 fairly urgently so I'll do it "quickly" before climbing into the comets.
  2. Thanks guys @Adam: I was about to get stuck into the 1965 Orange Tail SAA B727-200 because I actually need this one for a particular airport scene. However, if you would like to do it, I will back off, since I have a few hundred Comet repaints still to do before the Mytraffic 5.5 deadline. Please let me know ASAP
  3. I went overboard on this paint and spent far too long on it, but I really wanted to get it right. I'm particularly pleased with the metal underbelly despite not being able to use an alpha channel for reflectivity. It's the 1964 "orange tail" version the the SAA Boeing 707-300 - the "Johannesburg". This image above is a direct screenshot from the ModelConverterX workspace. This program is great for quickly checking accuracy and texture positioning, but IMHO it doesn't really show how the paint would look in the simulator. And the textures: texture.My64.zip
  4. Ah ha... ModelConverterX... hmmm I must take a look at that.
  5. Nice work, Adam How did you manage to get the stewardess out of the plane on the Kulula paint? I particularly liked the dirt and paint unevenness just above the wing pods - you see the effect clearly on the actual texture map - and no doubt in the sim as well when you get up close. We painters sometimes just have to create paints of a particular model where a different livery already exists. (Like the Kulula Zippy livery that I made for the 734). Perhaps they could be included in an extra "bonus" zip file in the next MYT version for those who are prepared to create an additional airline in MyTraffic to accommodate a particular paint.
  6. Ah, now I see what you mean. :cool: So it seems you already had a comet model 8 years ago. I didn't know that. That must have been for FS2002 or FS 2000. Do these old textures actually still fit the new model exactly ? It seems that there are even more liveries than merely these 12 - but not that many more - if we are still limited to one livery per airline. I will therefore re-do all the paints. However, these previous paints of yours will certainly help as a reference. As you say, they are usable but won't really do justice to a brand new upgraded FSX model which are so much better than the older models.
  7. I will try to complete all 12 Comets by then. (I said "try" not "promise" :mrgreen: ) Es tut mir leid, Burkhard, aber ich verstehe dieser commentar nicht ganz. Sei so gut und bitte erlautern weiter.
  8. Great, thanks for the model and blank texture. At first glance, all looks fine. I see that you have listed 12 variants in the .CFG file. I will take on these 12 liveries as my next project - just as soon as I complete two oldie SAA repaints which will be uploaded shortly. How much time do I have before your MyTraffic 5.5 deadline?
  9. Burkhard, I think you have misunderstood my question. I am not referring to the DXT1 file in the texture.my00 (also called Comet4C_t.bmp) In the texture.blank folder, you have a single 32-bit BMP file (not a DXT1 file) called Comet4C_t.bmp. This is a single layered file in the sense that the Tail logo, the BEA Logo, the Stripe and the windows are all on one layer and not separated. Obviously when you first worked with this picture you must have had at least an image with the windows alone, or more likely separated from the other items via layers in your original Photoshop file. In previous "paint kits" you have always had the windows separate - very often your paint kit would consist of the model outlines and just the windows and nothing else. This one is different. However, don't worry - I will extract the windows-only details from your composite file and make my own paint kit. Rather spend your time making a great model :razz:
  10. Hello Burkhard It's coming along nicely, I see. I notice that Comet4C_t.bmp in the folder texture.blank is a single-layered file. Do you have this file split into layers or do I make my own paint kit? Take your time with the remainder - I have a couple of oldie SAA repaints I still want to do before getting stuck into the comet.
  11. And finally, East African Airways completes the series of nine VC10 Paints. and the Textures: Texture.My08.zip Err... Burkhard, how is the Comet coming along?
  12. Here is the penultimate VC10: Ghana Airways And the textures: Texture.My07.zip
  13. In the FSX version of Mytraffic (5.4b), there is an option in the communicator (under Configure My Traffic) to "Install aircraft models for historic flights". In the P3D version of Mytraffic (5.4b), there is no such option in the communicator. Is there some other way to do this, or must the files be extracted manually?
  14. Yes please - A Comet would be great. :razz: There are only two more VC10's to go to complete the entire series, and I'll try to get them done this week (unless I get diverted again :mrgreen: )
