Flight Toolkit - Public Beta!

Recommended Posts

The Flight Toolkit has now officially gone into public beta phase. You can download it here:

 

http://flighttoolkit.com/

 

There are 2 different downloads available:

- an Addon Builder for those who will be creating addons, and

- an Addon Manager that installs addons in Flight.

 

Also, you will find complete, detailed, and illustrated tutorials on their use.

 

Please visit the Flight Toolkit web site, download the tools, and participate in the public beta. Show the developer that we support him and appreciate his efforts.

 

Also, please show screenshots of your new liveries in this forum so that we can all take part in the enthusiasm and fun. All are welcome, and even the first attempts by newcomers will be highly appreciated. Don't hesitate!

 

Finally, if you wish, please do share the new livery addon with the rest of us. The Addon Manager specifically allows installation of addons in Flight so that everybody can fly your pretty new paint job if you are willing to share.

 

Best regards.

Luis

Very nice, thanks for the udpate!

I have never been one any good at painting but I may have to check this out when I get a chance, I am traveling the next week so will probably be sometime after that.

Nice to see someone is putting the effort into this for Flight, and I am sure the community will greatly appreciate those efforts!

Ok, I have downloaded the Flight Tools and read through all the Tutorials. Very interesting stuff and I might actually be able to do this. I will see what kind of trouble I can get myself into. A lot of information here, I have never done any kind of texture painting before. I can only work on it as time permits but should be fun to see what people come up with.

 

I certainly also appreciate the time and effort involved to put this all together for the community.

Looks interesting but I think I will stay away from it for a while....or until I see a lot more liveries in the sky.

At work so can't try it out now, but this allows us to repaint the aircraft in Flight? Can we modify the flight dynamics and create new aircraft models?

Well, first problem is that its not finding any files when it opens.......

 

I might need some likely paths, since its listing my steam folder as empty.

 

Connection thread says its running.

Right now it allows for adding new aircraft paints. What it *might* develop into only the programmer knows.

"When it opens..." what? The first step is to do the naming process, then it goes and asks which airplane to base the new livery upon. Have you gotten this far or is it an error before that? Following the tutorials step by step I had the first "package" of textures ready for my artistic work done in about four minutes. The artistic work is still in the developmental process...

Wait... YOU CAN MAKE ADDONS?????

 

Correction: I thought making addons was just for planes, scenery and stuff, not repainting. Am I correct? Or does addon making include repainting?

Hello! Right now the tool just makes repaints of existing aircraft. The addons it creates can include one or more repaints. I'm investigating whether I can include adding new models, or converting content from FSX, but for now I am focusing on more simple non-animating models such as scenery and airports.

Us noobs to repainting are going to need some detailed tutorials, or somebody to distribute some "Blanks" of the textures for repainting, I think. Everything is packed together so tight in there!

I can't install the toolkit. It says I don't have Flight. I have Flight, but it's the steam version. Do I need to install the GFWL version?

I don't have a creative bone in my body so I'm not sure if I can make good use of this, but I'll try, and thank you very much Mr Stonelance for your efforts so far. Even if I can't get the most out of it, your work and time on this is very much appreciated.

One more question: Should we open a pinned forum just so people can post repaints to download? Or are you going to open a downloads section just for repaints on the website? I'm loving this fact, though I'm still trying to figure out how to install the toolkit.

Is information on this going to be passed to other venues? Like the steam forums?

Hi Devon,

 

If you spend time on the Steam forum, please do go ahead and announce this. :lol:

 

Best regards.
