Limited interest examples
« on: March 25, 2023, 11:21:05 AM »
These paints are for a model I have been tweaking to for some time.

Not sure there will be much interest.

Certainly interest, especially if made for P3D...

Nice work John. I for one pretty much download anything you create.

Your interest is appreciated and heartening.

There are fewer and fewer of these aircraft flying now. This then leads to fewer flight plans and less need to create new paints.

Having said that my models change over time as I try to overcome painting hurdles on this model and the PC-6. I have even gone so far as to plot the position of the mapping gizmo so that future versions fit onto the same position on the texture map.

This version of the SF.260 will however not take the old texture mapping, one or two of you might have examples. I am busy redoing those textures over time.

This leads me to a contentious topic; will the models be converted to other simulator formats?
Not by me. I make these models for my own use. I share my creations as they are.

As I do not have any other simulator software, I have no interest in converting them myself.
I will share source files with someone whom I can trust to preserve the models and the animations intact.
Allowing conversions seems to create the impression that the creation is now in the public domain.
I have had an unfortunate outcome already, in part due to misguided intentions and instructions on my part, but I found the result rather unsatisfactory.

In short, I understand that people get emotionally charged about this subject. The increasingly diverse platforms creates a need from increasingly diverse end users to have their platform supported. I get it, I also want new stuff in my sim. Unfortunately for myself the part naming and tagging in FSX and onwards is different to FS9. A lot of time must be spent on re-texturing and adding or removing animations. I really appreciate the efforts of those willing to make models available to all platforms.

That said, are there AI flight plans for these aircraft outside of Switzerland? I probably have not searched extensively enough.
What I am saying is that I will more likely paint a scheme on an example that I can see in my sim.

Take care.

John

So far in my tracking collection, I have found tracking for the following, bearing in mind this is for the winter season, so I expect more fly in the summer. For the US, I have just started collecting tracking data, and have found tracking for three of the 61 US registered F260s so far.

Aircraft with tracking:

Thank you Morten

Already very helpful.

This is the list of registered F260s in the registers I have checked.
For the non-US aircraft, I have already checked tracking and tracking was not available at that time for any other than the ones I previously listed, but that could of course be due to winter.
I just checked G-MACH as I didn't have it in my list and the ARC expired in September 2022, so I am unsure of the status of it.

Thanks Morten.

There are then way more than I imagined.

For now, I have fixed a few mapping issues. Reshaped the canopy and prop spinner to better depict a d version.
Also updating the paint-kit and retro updating my paints.

I have painted G-MACH as I had it on my old version.

A day or two then I can release a batch of examples.
