Recommended Posts

get wake effects to work?It has the water splash effect but no wake.Also, as Reddog brought up in anther post, http://ftp.avsim.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboa...orum=DCForumID8she's flying pretty good but has a slight tendency to wander to the left. Aileron trim is not working, does not seem to have any effect at all.The following screenies are the finsihed repaint of my Pink American Duck.http://imagehost.auctionwatch.com/preview/...oah42/DUCK1.JPGhttp://imagehost.auctionwatch.com/preview/...oah42/DUCK2.JPGhttp://imagehost.auctionwatch.com/preview/...oah42/DUCK3.JPGStill attempting to get in contact with panel and airplane authors for permission to upload. As soon as I have such permission, this bird will be available.Cheers!Heather

Thank you Brian. I had tried that but thinking back, had not rebooted the system. Perhaps that will make a difference.Hmmm . . .I wonder how she would look, leaving the stars, stripes, and Vargas girl, but replacing the pink with a Fire Engine Red. Even white I think would look nice.Never enough to do . . .Cheers!Heather

VERY NICE!!!!!!!! You could make another version for the folks who don't want pink. Change the pink to white and you also have a beautiful plane. Very nice indeed. I like it pink!Don

Thinking real hard about it Don. Do you really think there would be that much interest in it, beyond more than a half-dozen or so downloads?Thought I was finished with it but I see just a few little touch-ups I want to do.May very well go with an off-white one and remove the "Heather." Leave everything else like it is.I think I have the "painted in" light reflections looking pretty good; may do some on the front of the float too. Still a little flat.Also need to get some shading onto the fuselage just behind the cowling. On the other hand, may do something more with the blue sweeping back rather than just a vertical cut-off line between the pink and blue; too sterile.Still not having much luck in locating Tom Schaad. Searching the net. Lots of references to work with FS2000 but every address I find is his old defunct email addy.Cheers!Heather

All good ideas. I think there would be a want for it. The painted in reflections look great in the pictures, but I would really need to see it in person. (hint-hint!) LOL!!! I like it. Something different.Donps: PSP has some great tools for shadows and such. Just another kick from me to you towards the keyboard! LOL!DM

Well, I want one ! I guess, so does Don, so you've got at least two takers !I'd be quite happy with the pink "Heather" version as is, unless you want to keep that one for yourself.
