Texture for Container ship

Postby penta » Sat Dec 31, 2011 9:27 am

I wanted to update the container ship by giving it a texture. The model I'm talking about is in the flightgear scenery database and looks like this:

A couple of years ago, I went to Trieste and I had the opportunity to take some photos of a cargo ship docked in the harbor. Those photos ended in the following panorama:

Using this panorama I decided to extract textures for the Container ship in flightgear.
After a couple of days of work between gimp and blender, that's what I got:

After some tests I will send the updated files to the scenery database

Great improvement, I really like it.

It's all these little details that add up to a great experience.

I actually had the same idea, they just needed a texture to make them good.

Great stuff

I've sent it with a couple of corrected models on January 3 to fgfsdb at stockhill dot net but they're not online as of today. Did my zip file arrive?

Email sent on 14/01/2012 but the updated model is not yet in the repository along other two static models thata I've updated sent with the same email. Is there something wrong?

I guess so, you might've ended up in his spambox. I've sent him a pointer to this topic ;)

Thanks!

The freighter is going to get same treatment as the container ship (already UV mapped):

I've finally completed the container ship (the containers were oversized on the first version). Here is the outcome:

Then, the freighter gets a facelift too. This is before:

and this is after:

The models are available in the flightgear database!
