So, is there going to be a lightmap, or are we going to wait for the shader to be updated a bit?

I'm planning to do all the advanced lighting using lightmaps, just like the ATR 72. (Although the landing lights will have lightmaps this time.)

Both look very nice! :)

Zbyszek, the cockpit windows in your livery are unnecessary, as they are already in the 3d model.

I didn't mean windows. It's metal around cokpit windows. Anyway, I think that it won't looks good on aircraft (texture is too small resolution for details like in B100d :wink: ), but you can cut the 3d model and do new UV map for this place.

We all bring our little touches to paintkits ;-)

I changed the resolution to 4096X4096 because I can do finer details, and I added a contour layer, which I did using the UV map and the edge detect feature in Gimp. I prefer working with the contours instead of the complete UV map. 8)

^Keep in mind that if the liveries are made at that size, there will probably be lag over MP. That happened with Skyop's CRJ-900 when he first made it. Of course, if you end up scaling down the paintkit, that should be fine.

I'd rather make them bigger so I can work with more detail, it's real easy afterwards to convert them to 2048x2048 or 1024x1024, whatever works best. But if you work with 1024 for example, you get a lot of pixelization, which you never can fix.

The Jazz, green and red are done, they are available here:

I like this one, so I think it will be my next...Then I have to get back to the Twotters ;-)

*cough* DDS *cough* instant loading :) Can anyone test the new Mac build on Hudson to see if DDS is working correctly? I can do it later this week if I have time.. Jazz is looking snappy!

@493Tiger: Upload it in 4096x4096 when complete. When the original CRJ900 was released, I didn't exactly know how to optimize the livery select system- each and every UV mapped object was specified in the animation, and that kinda lagged the whole thing. Now, I know how to group objects together, so I only need to specify one object- this significantly speeds things up, so the big size may not be a problem anymore. We'll see.

@truthsolo: No DDS support for Linux builds. :(

Here are Bob's Air Canada Jazz liveries (they were scaled back down to 2048x2048, since not much detail was lost):

I didn't think I'd get this far today, but I'm almost finished the US Airways Express livery

@ Skyop,

The engines and wing-lets have labels that can cause confusion... I need to add some colours to the outboard face of the wing-lets but they are labelled left side and right side???

ps Doing these liveries went so well, that I'll do another one right now, the American Eagle... I am kind of keeping the Canadian theme going ;-) I'm doing liveries of aircraft that were photographed in Dorval (CYUL) :lol:
