  1. Swiss Mustang for Skunkcrafts P51 View File Swiss Mustang for Skunkcrafts P51 by Leen "Flybike" de Jager This is a livery based on the D-FPSI wearing a Swiss dress and registration. Probably the only P51 with a cut-out-step in the left flap. ( as far as I know) The internet is full of information about the history of this interesting bird. To have maximum result installing this livery editing two OBJ files is advised. Inside the livery there is a text file with simple instructions. Also is explained how to make the updater not to update the edited OBJ files ( thanks to Yoyoz ) I hope you`ll enjoy flying this livery as much as I enjoyed making it.

    PSA

    Sorry, its a misunderstanding I was reacting on the quoted part about expecting or not expecting explanations from other moderators and I assumed Tony expected them ( the explanations from other moderators) here. It has noting to do with the issue what this thread is about, it was more about expecting moderators explaining their actions on their fora, on other fora, the moment this came across in this discussion.

    PSA

    I agree its not likely to happen. Do you really like to see moderators from other forums , tellng here of misbehaving visitors on their forum? And explaining why they took action agains certain persons? Speaking for myself, it will not happen from my side.

    Question on number of Cores v GHz of a computer

    The Graphic card is the bottleneck , both processors will do nicely. Invest your money in the graphics. FSX depends on the CPU X-Plane depends for a huge part on the graphic card.

    Moving x-plane to new HDD

    ?? You write you bought a 10Tb HDD for your otho. Now you say its a SSD. A 10Tb SSD ????? Cannot believe that probably 4 Tb is the max for about 1500 dollars. X-Plane on a SSD and ortho on a huge HDD thas ideal.

    Moving x-plane to new HDD

    It might be an idea to put the ortho files on the new HDD and leave XP11 where it is now. No trouble with DRM at all.

    New Setup

    Be more modest and do not blame anyone on a forum. Let alone crying out loud "shame on them" If this is representative for your attitude it might be an idea to join another forum or adjust your behave drasticly.

    X-Plane 10.50b6 Running Beautifully

    I fully agree, the latest beta performs excellent.

    Are these settings ok ?

    Setting cloud detail at the lowest value. And the same time using Skymax. Not much logic in that for me. Skymax changes the textures for the clouds in X-Plane , its does NOT actually produces the clouds in XPlane. So when you choose for low-cloud detail, you get low detailed Skymax clouds, wich are slightly better than the default clouds. Cannot imagine what `s the fun of that.

    PMDG Announces First X-Plane Project

    Will we ever see it ?? I am afraid we won`t. They strated the project because they ware afraid of losing market and not being able to enter the P3D-scene as a commercial partner. These days they are making profit with products for P3D. I think the DC6 does not have any priority anymore.

    Pilots' fatigue investigation

    Do you really want me to take this post seriously ? I bet not. This is a forum wich is about a flight-sim ( a flightsim to be taken seriously, though its also on the shelfs in game-shops and it has users below ten years old ) But, as you asked for it. My kids sometimes exploit their father to make unreasonable and fatigue-inducing flights. In the end I send them to bed and have some flight-fun for myself. I hope this helps with your investigation.

    Ilyushin Il14-Rossiya-Russian Airlines livery by Leen de Jager Ilyushin Il14-Rossiya-Russian Airlines by Leen "Flybike" de Jager This is repaint/livery for the Ilyushin II14 made by Felis Leopard. The aircraft itself ( made by Andrey Kozyaruk aka Felis Leopard ) can be downloaded here http://www.avsimrus.com/files.phtml?search=il-14&sopt_mode=or&folder=95&sopt_title=1&sopt_desc=1&sopt_author=1&sopt_fname=1&sopt_comms=1&minrating= This plane can be used in XP9 and XP10 ( visit this post for use in XP10 http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?showtopic=68242 ) I contacted Felis Leopard and he gave me permission to edit some OBJ-files and publish them. It was a challenge to work on the looks of this bird, adjusting platelines, improving color-matching of different parts etc. Adding normals and more detail brings this bird ,though its freeware now, to payware looks. I hope you`ll enjoy this livery as much as I enjoyed making it. MIND! If you already downloaded and installed the normals and obj files I made for this arcraft, please replace these OBJ files by the ones* wich are provided with this livery. They are better for this livery (and other liveries as well ) . HOW TO INSTALL. Unzip Rossiya.zip to a temp folder. Place the folder "LDJ-Ilyushin 14 Rossiya-Russian Airlines" in the liveries folder of the aircraft. * Place the three files from the folder named "Main-objects" in the OBJECTS folder of the aircraft ( make backup of the original objects folder FIRST) About the propeller: It is not possible to make the livery having a blue-rotating propellor , only the static prop can be included in the livery.You`ll find a file for the rotating propellors in this download.Placing this file in the main directory of the aircraft ( make a backup on the original first) wil result in a blue rotating propellor , but all other liveries will have it too. Better said the blue rotating propellors are optional. Leen de Jager http://www.flybike-paints.nl PS You`ll get the one with the grey wheels !!

    No no, do not misunderstand my words. ( In duglish ) I did not say YOU cropped. I said the texture IS cropped, by the modeller who made the plane. You did an excellent paintjob. What I ment to say is that, such excellent paintwork should better be spent on models of wich the textures are no so badly mapped. I really do not acccuse you of cropping. The makers of the model are to blaim , IF we want to blaim someone, wich is not my intention. I started my comment with "very well done" Thats a compliment wich I certainly would not have given when I knew you were to blaim for the cropping. Best regards Leen de Jager Apart from that I said cropped I probably shoulds better have said horizontally compressed texture wich gets stretched on the model. I wrote as a matter of fact earlier on this topic Cropped means in this case horizontally compressed

    Cropping tuexture to take advantage of high resolution is a wrong way of thinking. High resolution is great, but only with undistorted textures.. Going into distortion just to use high resolution is totally going the wrong way. Better have high quality at low resolution then bad qualty on high resolution. I rest my case here. Leen

    Cropped means in this case horizontally cormpressed. You can recognise that when you look at the abnormal narrow windows and doors. The texture has to stretched to cover the model in the sim. In other words , if you want to have a circle on the model, you need to draw a n oval on the texture.

    Very well done !! Nevertheless a question. Why working ( I alsmost say waisting) superb paintwork on models with such terrible cropped textures ? All sharp lines and details get fuzzy the moment the texture gets stretched on the aircraft. Thats the reason why I personally never touch textures wich are cropped, the result on the plane always make me cry. Leen de Jager
