Re: Does anyone want a JYAI repaint?

Glad you like the aircraft. Alas, adding cabin lights is not quite as straight forward as just making a "JYAI_Poseidon_L.bmp" texture. That texture needs to be specified in the model as well for it to work. For FSX and P3Dv4 it's more complex because I have not been able to get the Lightmap method u...

Re: Does anyone want a JYAI repaint?

Why paint an AI C-130H with 4 bladed props to represent an Italian C-130J with 6 bladed props, when a whole squadron is already available as proper Italian C-130J's in the Military AI Works AMI 46th Brigata Aerea package?

It's a step backwards and a total waste of time.

Re: Does anyone want a JYAI repaint?

You said "I can do an AC130" which is why I queried it. Italy doesn't have any C-130H's either, as Giorgio said, so I presume you are going retro.

Look forward to some Middle Wallop screen shots in your other thread.

Re: Does anyone want a JYAI repaint?

I don't want to discourage you from doing anything, but what's the point of painting an AC-130 for an Air Force that doesn't have them on a model that's going to be superceded shortly? The mapping on the new model will be different to the old one in any case, so you won't be able to transfer over th...

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

Good spot Barry, thank you. The aircraft in the photograph is 11-5733 at Mildenhall that I had already produced, so it was quite easy to add the APQ-187 to the nose: https://i.imgur.com/tj0QpjK.jpg According to the article, at the end of 2018 there were at least two MC-130J's equipped with the devic...

I'm really pleased Brent has done this. It provides a complete Spec Ops set up featuring the new AC-130J's, AC-130U's, MC-130J, MC-130H's plus repainted CV-22B's and U-28A's.

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

No problem at all and consider it done. I just need to adjust the alpha channel to make the tip rings less intense and then copy the new texture into each of the relevant aircraft folders.

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

I've added them to the "generic" list, together with the EC-130H Compass call. I'll decide what to include when I get to that stage.

Re: MAIW KRMGMK Pilatus PC-9 Conversion Support

The PROP_ANIM_RATIO= is a throw back to FS2002 and works also in FS9. It's use is to create a steady spin of the prop disc in the required direction (clockwise or anti clockwise) by altering the value (+ or-). I have yet to find a formula to calculate the value for the particular prop drivers in the...

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

Thanks for that. After a quick bit of research to check the visual differences between the "E" and the "H", I think I can put a plan together to create the rest of the 4-bladed variants in an order that minimises the work. I think for sanity sake, I will need to split the packages in some way and I'...

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

That was a useful cross check of HC-130J serial numbers at ECity against those that Brent retrieved from Scramble. I have 2001-2010 (excluding 2009), but I was missing 2011. I can add that in.

Re: JYAI C-130J Specials

If I can limit the work to say one or two generic 4-bladed airlifters with a sample paint each plus a paint kit, that might be a useful thing to do. The problem is all the small variations of lumps and bumps on the airframe and I'm up to 17 models in the complete package already. If I could get an i...

Re: General MAIW Conversion Package issues

Mipmaps are a feature of aircraft textures. They work in the same way as LODs do in the models to reduce polygons at a distance to improve frame rate. When viewed close to the AI aircraft, the full sized texture will be displayed, but as you move away, progressively small versions of the texture tha...
