FlightGear SOTM April 2017

Postby dg-505 » Wed Apr 05, 2017 11:58 am

Hi :D
sorry for the delay but let's start the SOTM competition for April 2017!

Participation Rules
  1. 15 entries (because a poll can only have 15 options)
  2. Only one entry per person to give everyone a fair chance of submitting a screenshot.
  3. You may enter one extra for somebody else. This person of course can submit their own candidate.
    • If you submit a screenshot of another person, please make sure he/she grants you the right to publish it under the correct license!
  4. Please convert your picture from png to jpg (plenty of converters online).
  5. Has to be taken with FlightGear.
  6. Every picture should have a caption.
    • Please add the name of the aircraft and the location where the screenshotshot was taken to your entry (not necessarily to be mentioned in the caption).
  7. Screenshots must not be post-processed except from cropping and/or resizing (but you may use the in-sim ALS filters).
  8. You may change your entry as often as you want, until the voting starts.
  9. You agree to license your screenshot under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license for publication by the FlightGear project.

Voting will start when 15 entries are reached or at the latest on April 24, in a seperate topic.
(Around this date, I will be away on business. If I don't find the time, please anyone feel free to start the voting!)

Have fun
Jonathan :)

I WILL BE AN SPLASH
AN-12BK After landing on SVMI Maiquetia Historical Manual Ridge Approach / ----09----\ /> Mision: Boavista, Canaima, Maiquetia FL120.

Two tricks. One tip:

1. Choosing the best isometric view in order to get natural antialiasing by POV factor. Notice that the pic is not well framed for this, but there is no other way to compete against giants, on what I believe this like one of the most skilled edition of the contest. Will be more in the future, and better because the quality of the contributions.
2. Flip the bird, Imagination turns on instantly compensating the not well framed issue with some balance. Putting into the limit the rule #7 of the contest.

Tip: On Spring is the time to feel the fresh wind of the Atlantic Ocean. If you go for APP to SVMI having east winds, go manual fly the ridge+soaring approach for the 09, feel the wind in your face with the best light of the year.


Why vote for me, FG'er ?
Perhaps you like my shot, just notice that I'm competing against giants with just a single core celeron, intel graphics, in the lowest FG config.
Another reasons are that the shot is going to be used for the screen splash of the AN-12BK. While as the same time is a flight proposal trough SOTM for FG'ers who want to deal with beauty and dared skills.


Rat Boys, Vote for me ¡
And..... Don't forget to liked if you liked and subscribe to my channel if you really haven't done (subscribed). :mrgreen: Rat boys youtubers of the minecraft. I hate you. Get out of my front page, stop mine-crafting FG mumble channel.
Still I love you teeny rats, vote for me pokedemons, or flight maiquetia. Rats boys of the 777 and Neos. Vote for me and I promise free unlimited steam account. Vote me twice, spawn me up to the top of this votation and I promise better PC for gamers. I don't know any snipper that won't to have the best cooling system just by voting me. Spam me up to the top and I promise you to stop parental control over the gamers.

I'll play Manic Miner for the 80's, when I was kinda rat. Oh Boy those were the times. Now is the future ¡ And I loved it too. Anyway I'm very presidential and if I win the votations I'll promise to build the tallest wall in minecraft ever, in a way that those GT auto gamers couldn't hurdle.

Thanks you.

And god bless FlightGear. :D
