I sent you a pm Skyop.

Helijah, could you give me the paintkit for the AC-130? I made a USAF livery, but it doesn't look very good. If you could give me the painkit with all the layers separated, I could make some much better looking liveries. :)

You already have the paintkit, look in C-130/models folder for "texture.xcf.gz" it's a Gimp file.

What liveries are you doing, I'm doing a couple of RAF ones at the moment, with a few more lined up (non RAF), I don't want to duplicate what you're doing.

This is the livery I am doing: (feel free to do it too, it will probably look a LOT better than mine :) )

Oh, I was able to come out of Gimp with this:
(hopefully it will help anybody making a livery :) )

Does anybody know of any counts where the AC-130 has been equipped with a JATO system? If so I might put that in.

I've never heard of a non-seaplane having JATO.

Well, I know that the C-130 is JATO equipped quite often when it's carrying large payloads.

All LC-130 F/H/R variant can use JATO,the aircraft often used in support mission :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LC-130
C-130 T "Fat Albert" use JATO only in air show.
And shouldn't misunderstand that it uses jato in heavy payload,it only use in some circumstance as above. :D
A good flight sim is not to make people feel fly easier but to make them feel fly is as real as it get.

I'll see if I can make a JATO system. That would be VERY interesting, in the least.

Just a quick progress report, most of the panel lines are done with only a bit of tidying up to do and extra details to add.

**Jaw drops**

WOW... Will you be including a paintkit? I would LOVE to have multiple liveries of immense detail such as that one. :)

Ok, here is a preview of what I have now. What I have been working on most is armament panels in the cockpit and filling up the overhead panel with displays and equipment. After that I'll work on an WSO station in the cargo hold where I'll place tons radar displays, flight computers, fire control panels, and gun cameras.

A little preview of the exterior(yes, I know, the livery doesn't even compare to what gooney has, but it's just a temp :) )
