Small investment (blender)

Postby magicmaze » Thu Jul 30, 2015 12:40 am

Hey all,

Flight simulation has always been a big passion of mine. I really wish to contribute to the community instead of just being an idle consumer of the fruits it produces. Therefore, I would like someone to teach me how to create models and textures for the planes in FG in exchange for me being on their team in the future (long term). I have Skype and can screenshare to make things easier (plus I have motivation and I am a fast learner :) ) I have previous experience in Photoshop, however I understand that Blender is something else entirely. I would greatly appreciate any help and possibly a long term partnership.

Thank you,
TJ

Hey! Why don't you start by trying tonmake some liveries?
The Boeing 717 from www.gothub.com/FGMEMBERS/717 has two- some more might be nice!
And helljah, Marc Kraus, JWOCKY (FDM and Systems) and IAHM-COL (3D) Richard Harrison Thorsten gsagostinho (textures0
Might be able to help,
Glad you joined, and want to contribute!
Another easy thing to do is look for bugs!
If you use windows,
Download flightgear from www.flightgear.org/downloads/builds/nightly/ and download 3.7.0-full.exe and then you can look for bugs! You will have to download the full gb again if you want to test a newer one say next month though unless you can use Git or SVN
Enjoy,

Thanks for the suggestions :)

Can you please tell me how I would start making liveries?

Additionally, I still want to get into blender cockpit modeling, so the offer is still up...

Thanks,
TJ

Use GIMP to edit the .xcf files usually in AircraftFoldername/Paintkit, if not maybe convert a ,.png to xcf.
