« Last post by mage on April 16, 2024, 07:25:56 PM »

A very bright C182 operated by Bergen Fallskjermklubb. LN-DBY is based at Bergen Flesland ENBR

The font for the club text cannot be accurately reproduced, and the logo (umbrella-type logo) on the tail is omitted

Edit: 18 Apr '24 - upper wing surface colored more closely to the outline to avoid coloring main gear legs.

This aircraft has new paint on an old frame. Previously it was quite tasteful.

I'm not able to add the logo using the template, but all the other bits are there. Blue and orange is quite enough.

It is based at Tannheim, EDMT.

Enigmatic C182, D-EMTV. The only images I have found are all at Sabadell (LELL), and it is several weeks since it last flew.

Here it is anyway!

Hi Marco -

Sounds like a texture corruption.

I have no control over the texture that is on the download link, it's the software on the page that created it - the one with the download link. It may have been corrupted on the way over to you (I suggest this because there have been over 400 visitors to this one, and you're the first person to report a problem with it, which suggests it is a download problem).

I would suggest that you try to download it again and see whether the texture arrives intact, and perhaps let me know whether that was the problem.

If the texture comes across badly again, you can always use the one I've attached here, which is just my download from that same link. If that texture works, it still points to a download corruption.

The quality and format of the texture you get is something controlled by Charly's clever use of graphics software through a web interface, and in all the ones I've installed, it has worked very well. But while I manipulate bits of the texture (coloring in the livery templates, placing elements, and sizing them), that's all the control I have over what comes out!

If there is a corruption in the source image, that would be for Charly to fix since it would be the functionality of the repaint process that was creating a problem.

Also, be aware that I also manipulate the DDS image when I download it, because I use FS9 and the web page won't let me specify that I want the texture as BMP. My conversions of all of these textures to BMP have gone fine, including this one. As I say, I reckon it is a download corruption.

Hi Mage

Would be possible for you to check the texture.

I can't use it in DXTBmp tool to flip it and use on MSFS. The texture don't load in.

The textures i use from you so far are ok except this one.

Thank you

C210 operated by Aero Rent, HA-DRB, with radar pod. It appears to be based at Budaors (LHBS), close to Budapest. At least that is where Aero Rent's offices are closest to. Feel free to correct this info if you know better. A post on the thread will do just fine.

As you'll see from the mugshot, the aircraft has a deep drop-shadow effect on the registration that the repainter can't fully imitate. I've done what I can using the stock drop-shadow feature. I've made a modification that replicates the registration using "elements" (in silvery-grey) and displaced it down and to the left of the actual registration. The effect is more pronounced but is still not 100%. The drop shadow on the real aircraft slopes down and to the left whereas this is just a secnd copy of the reg placed under the original. is the second version.
