Some Style with Your Substance: Exterior Enhancements for the NGX -700

Recommended Posts

01.jpgWhile we anxiously await the service pack, I wanted to let everyone know that version 1.0 of my bump maps and speculars have been uploaded to Avsim and should be available soon. They work with ANY -700 livery, both WL and non-WL. This is my first attempt at doing anything like this. I'm sure there will be inaccuracies and errors so please let me know and I will issue updates as needed. If the feedback on this package is pretty good, I'll do a set for the -800 as well, but no promises on any time lines!Here are a few before and after pics for comparison to the stock textures:PMDG's excellent green chromate livery with and without the new bump mapsfsx2012-03-0315-53-29-34.jpgfsx2012-03-0315-55-27-32.jpgfsx2012-03-0315-50-35-07.jpgfsx2012-03-0315-48-41-09.jpgPMDG's KLM livery with and without bumps and specsfsx2012-03-0222-23-02-29.jpgfsx2012-03-0222-23-51-09.jpgWN without & withfsx2012-03-0316-16-34-93.jpgfsx2012-03-0316-15-14-20.jpg

I feel kinda stupid but how can a bump map increase resolution? Or at least make it look as if it had better resolution?Manfred

The bump mapping is amazing, great work.However I disagree, bump maps don't make McPhat who they are.
McPhats liveries arent good for NGX. All of them has the same paintkit dirt. They doesnt match real world paint. And too much contrast on rivets. Its too unrealistic. The good part is bump mapping.
