Howdy,I, for one, am so glad you couldn't resist tinkering. :-lol That is one dazzling re-paint; I'd better stop breathing so hard ... I'm foggin' up the chrome. :-)

Thanks Joe, and all of the other nice people who like this texture.I tried hard to make her look USED and slightly ABUSED overall as she is a fairly old bird. Would you believe that the wings and stabalizer texturing has come from my Metal version of the F4U Corsair that I did for CFS2 - lots of squeezing and redrawing but the foundations of the F4U textures can still be seen - notice the shell eject ports on the underwings. With the Reflective effect she has, I think, scrubbed up very well for an old girl.Again thanks for the positive comments and enjoy her in FS2002Garry

Don't mess up the chrome - you will have to clean all of my aircraft if you mess up the chrome - and with the number of reflective's I have available you could be cleaning for a long time. :-lol Glad she "wets" your appetite.Garry

The metal texture looks great during daylight, however, on my system the aircraft becomes transparent in Twilight or early evening light.Regards,Bob

Thanks for all of your positive comments. Makes the effort worthwhile. For some fun, I have done an imaginary Air National Guard livery - no idea if it was used but the scheme appealed to me so here is a few snapshots:http://www.gjsmith.com/images/Goose-ANG-1.jpghttp://www.gjsmith.com/images/Goose-ANG-2.jpghttp://www.gjsmith.com/images/Goose-ANG-3.jpgI will be posting this texture set and my Golden Goose Textures this morning to my site so in a few hours they should be ready.Golden Goose:http://www.gjsmith.com/images/Golden-goose-3.jpgHappy simming and thanks again.Garry

Hi Bob,The transparency at dusk and dawn are because I have not yet done any of the night textures for the GOOSE - each one has to be created independently and I will do the Night Set of textures for each shortly for uploading - I chose to leave them out for the interim because of the massive size of the downloads already.Keep your eye on my web for the night textures in the next day or two.

What you are seeing is the raw texture without any reflective effects whatsoever, she is not designed for that as you can see - she looks ugly without reflective effect.Silly question time: - Can you see any reflective effects on any of the default aircraft (I think the default b777 has a shiny belly)Next Silly question: Have you turned on the reflective effects within FS2002 - Options - Display - Aircraft Tab - set reflective effects to ONMany people who have contacted me about not seeing my reflective effects have missed the above setting and the world was fine for them after doing that setting.Garry

Well my friend - You are definately missing out on the great Reflective Effects of FS2002 - I can't believe that your card does not support this effect - Have you canvased the Forums to see if other Voodoo users have resolved the problem - It seems to be a popular card so someone must have addressed and resolved the issue by now.Give it a shot and I hope that it can be resolve for you.PS thanks for the plug on netwings.com Garry

How do you get drooling off of a paint job? :-lol This is a BIG time keeper for me. That must have taken some time to do. Thanks for sharing with us Garry ;-)
