Hi all,
I thought I would start a tutorial request as I was going to post one and I thought of others who might want to request for some tutorials. This could help all the pro's currently designing to help those who aren't so well experienced like me.
Thanks
Ghost

My Request:
My tutorial request would be one for doing transparent cockpits, like having photos with the fuselage,naming, mapping and doing the rest of the stuff that requires having transparent cockpits as my plane is on a standstill till I can find/or get a good tut.
Thanks
Ghost

Asked and answered ghoster. When you PMed me I sent you links to the modelers tip of the day that covers the subject and a full explaination of how to accomplish the same with a tga.
Your request already has tutorials. What else do you want?
In the future don't PM me any more asking for help. I spent good time answering your question and you refused to listen.
Before I even joined the forums I read all of the tutorials and built basic practice models and learned allot along the way. After I joined I tried more complicated models and only asked for help when I was stuck an that was only after research based on suggestions.
I also am feeling frustration with you. Not because of your age or grammer but for your inability to help yourself. If your model takes a year so be it. Just use the pre exsisting tutorials and do it yourself and leave me alone.

Im sorry, I had deleted my mail and stuff to clean it up and got swiped.
I guess I should just go off the fourms for a while

And another user rushes the learning process by building too complicated of a model before he has the basics down, thereby discouraging himself and quitting. You're not the first to do that, and you won't be the last.

Did you check your trash bin for his deleted email?

I think it was all by PM and stuff. No trash bins in PM.

My model was fine, I just wanted to do a transparent cockpit as I DIDN'T KNOW HOW. The model flies fine, breaks fine, pivots fine and is textured fine, Its only that my cockpit was black.

I sent you a PM an hour after you asked me. I spent 40 minutes carefully wording a helpful response. Then you don't see the dark blue PM in your inbox. If that was too hard then how do expect to understand more complex things like transparency?

Ghost ..............cockpit transparency or transparent component parts has been covered here a dozen times

tuts and threads for assigning the correct material for the modeling
and the CS alpha channel part have been done for both

SEARCH the forum
I don't model and even I have a rudimentary idea of what needs to be done
just by seeing the various threads on the subject

You guys should heed his signature.

funny .................there is a certain member here who has some excellent tuts linked in his signature that covers just about everything you need to know about modeling ..........that same person has a current build thread
that for the past week or so has been dealing with transparency and material assignment

PAY ATTENTION GHOST !!! :eek:.............or talk to the hand :p

~ALPHA or ~CANOPY will be excellent names for a material. White is solid, black is completely see through on the Alpha channel.

These are my subtle hints captain.

Don't forget the spec alpha where the opposite is true. Black is cloudy and white is clear.

see, my only problem is that I don't get what you mean by rgb layer and transparency, please just give my the links, I searched the the fourms for at least 2 hours and it just gave cockpit this, cockpit that, nothing to actually do it, I need something which shows the body parts like the fuselage and steps, boof did one on a cube which confused me as usually, tuts have the aircraft or its parts there.USUALLY.

Don't limit your search to the forums. Google is your friend. If you don't understand the basic terminology, you may not be ready to accomplish your end result. Did you Google rgb?

I can tell you two things as a new modeler.

1) Theses guys are not going to just give you the answers you want UNTIL you show that you are actually trying to learn this process seriously. Take the time to study up on the terminology, as Jeff pointed out, and read through the tuts at he KE homepage. Nearly anything you need to know is right there if you look.

2) YouTube is your friend. you can search just about anything and it pops up. Granted, it may not necessarily be for a plane, BUT the principles will be the same. Don't get me wrong, there will be some things that won't cross over, or you can't find, but NEARLY everything can be found

2 minutes ago I had no idea what a "clan tag" is. I used google and quickly I found bout its from call of duty black ops. Magic.

RGB

etc.
