Technoid's Screen Shots

I thought I'd start a place where I can share screen shots of what I'm working on at home. If you want to share something too feel free to add your pictures.

I'll start it off with three shots of the engine I created for the P-38L. I'll probably tweak the engine colors a bit but other than that it's finished. I removed the muffler and carburetor after I put it in the plane because you can't see them and it saved some work on the mapping. Plus the exhaust on a plane like this would be custom and routed out the turbocharger.

It looks nice in there. No need for a real world engine in a model plane. Do still love your multi-cylinder creations though.

Yeah it looks decent enough. For some reason I just wanted to see an engine in the plane.

Yeah it's nice but you can't really see it unless you look close in the editor so it's possible I might not leave it in the released plane, if that ever happens.

The 4 stroke would look great in the F6 F7 and F8 camera angles too, not just the Editor.

Thanks. No build threads for me right now but I thought I'd share some screen shots of what I'm doing at home. I like to model but I'll be on again and off again.

If you remember the P-38L had whitish artifacts on the top four machine guns, looking down at them on a 2d field the top four machine guns looked whitish. So when I added the new engine the other day I made the gun barrels much thicker, the inside part when you look at the front of the gun so it has a barrel. Anyway I reduced the inside wall diameter a lot to make it real thick like the 20mm Cannon below them, but the whitish artifacts stayed there exactly the same.. no difference at all. So this morning I made four copies of the 20mm Cannon in the middle and moved them to the machine gun spots and resized them to the same size and the machine guns and everything is fine now. The whitish artifacts are completely gone. I really hate dumb little problems that take so long to fix. I should have made copies the first time and been done with it. But I wanted to know what the problem was so I wanted to fix it. Anyway the problem is fixed now. Thank goodness.

I've been working on the color scheme and will post some pictures of it later it's got some D-Day stripes now and looks more the part. Doug told me he's nearly done with his color scheme too. So I guess this plane will happen after all.

If you had a crappy video card like me you wouldn't notice stuff so much.

Here's three shots of my new color scheme I'll be using it for the release.
