    Livery List & Requests

    To all, and Jorge Uvo for the request. Virgin Express 00-LTU 2 x variants: 2 x Clean versions (1 x With White Nose) 2 x Dirty versions (1 x With White Nose) Issues/Changes: Apologies in advance, but on the right side rear door area, you'll see the fuselage glitch, this is out of my control and can not be rectified on my end (this has been the same issue with any of my liveries that have decals that cross this section of the aircraft) (not a painters fault) Black nose paint is not the shape on the real 00-LTU, but I made a compromise from a majority of Virgin Express 733's, as some are different shapes, so I went with the most used shape from looking at a variety of Virgin Express 733's, so I hope this isn't an issue for you. EDIT: changed '00-LTU' to 'OO-LTU' As i thought it was numbers in the pictures (my bad eyes, sorry) so please discard the ones in the pictures. Other than that, I really enjoyed painting this one! very challenging tail decal, there was a few moments I screamed a little but overall, great fun! Hope you all enjoy. Many Thanks, Nick Link: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/51798-virgin-express/

    Jorge Uvo, stay tuned, uploading the livery in 10 mins, just getting pictures together. yeah that’s the best way IMO as I hate waiting in anticipation haha, I’m just constantly binge watching it, on S7E4 after the livery is uploaded. Nick

    To All Livery Painters

    Hello to all Painters. I've spotted an anomaly with my paints and in some of yours too. some might have already realised so this topic wont effect you. what i am specifically aiming this topic at is this:
  7. Hi everyone, I’m very new to XP, I’ve had p3d for a while now, but I feel I’m definitely jumping ship here...(honestly..I can’t even boot it up anymore, which is a shame because I do love it along with all my addons for it) anyway.. I’m not all that clued up yet, I got the hang of Ortho4xp and mesh HD today, and can’t wait to make more (can’t believe it’s free...it blows my mind). So..I need help when it comes to updating XP, do I lose all my scenery that I’ve installed and added? Or can someone tell me what I lose when I update? Do I have to reinstall everything etc? any light on this would be greatly appreciated as I’m a little lost Many thanks Nick

    Sorry guys just a quick update. Im now back at work (which is time demanding) In my spare time I have two time demanding priorities (wife & game of thrones - which I have only started watching over a week ago and I’m on season 6 now..no spoilers please as I’m a late bloomer) so liveries are done over a couple of hours in the evening. so far the virgin express is 80% complete. after the release of that it’ll be the south west attempt. thanks Nick

    Jim, From the look of the livery, it wouldn’t surprise me if after 7 years, someone is still working on it haha but I feel your frustration, that’s what got me to paint my own, because nobody would paint it. And that’s why I paint what people want (try) I’ll see what I can do for you Jim. i’ll Give it a go. Now...I better go buy my wife a new handbag for this one ill keep you posted

    Livery List & Requests

    Hi Jorge Uvo and SWA4420, Thanks for requests, I will look into them. Just keep in mind I’m a beginner and have only started painting a little over 7 days ago. And looking at the SW livery..not only does it scares me because it looks very advanced, but also The amount of chloroform I’ll need to give to my wife to allow to me to invest the time to do it would probably cost a fortune! But I’m not one to be defeated. So I’ll give it a go..but I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to do it.. so I won’t promise anything. thanks again! Nick

    So the wife has had a wisdom tooth removed today, and after a certain time tonight (UK Time) she will be heavily dosed on pain killers and out like a light! which means I can go on my computer And I’d like to start another livery project tonight. To that end, I’d like some requests. I’ll be checking back! Thanks, Nick

    Being new to XP and Updating XP

    Jan, Thank you for the information. Im actually so happy about that too, full reinstall on P3D you lose all scenery..and Orbx scenery takes so long to reinstall etc. Either that or there’s something I’m not doing right. But anyway. I just wanted to know for future reference. Thanks again Jan. Nick

    Livery Decals

    So I'm trying to finish up my next livery, but i keep running into a problem with the decal placement on the engines. In Eng paint kit, i can move decals..No problem, but its the HD decals that go over the top of them which I can't seem to make alterations to. my question is, does anyone know how to change decal placements? Is there something somewhere I can Change? IXEG team? Many thanks Nick

    glitch on screen

    To All Livery Painters

    now this is due to a alignment issue within the paint kit. to get around this, you'll need to do the following: STEP 1. go into photoshop and open the 'B733 PaintKitEng.psd' from the PaintKit. Select the 'AO' layer, and highlight the Inlet. as show in the picture below: STEP 2. You now have to shift this layer which is 9 x left key and 2 x down key exactly. And this will align the layer back to normal again. hope this helps. Nick
