FAIB 767 released!

Recommended Posts

Here is a heads up for the new release of the FAIB 767. It appears to be also released for FS9. I dit not have time to check it out on my sim but I will later this week. The strange thing though is that there are some fresh repaints  from Juergen Baumbusch but it seems that he made fs9- repaints for the AIA model and fsx paint for the FAIB model?

well, I will find out soon. It looks great!

Oh yeah. Got it working nicely with the repaints from the FAIB website. I first installed the American Airlines fleet and installed them together with the AAL flightplans from AIG. I converted the textures so they work in fs9 and they all show up like they should. 

But there is one important thing missing. There is no lightmap. Is it possible to use a lightmap from the AIA 767? Or do these combination cause trouble? You have any experience with these issues?

The B767 models are so popular that they temporarily caused one of the best AI paint download websites to crash (www.flyingcarpet75.com). Most of the 767 models come with 4K texture sheets and are P3d4 native (along with FSX of course).

AI aircraft models are  becoming focused on FSPX and FAIB for Boeing and Airbus types. Also coming up soon from FAIB, the Airbus neo and Boeing max models.

The release of just one new type like the B767 and its associated paints can keep an AI enthusiast busy redoing schedules for hours. The FAIB version looks a lot more realistic than the legacy AIA model that it replaces.

The B767 FAIB and AIA texture sheets don't line up so they are not interchangeable. However, the FAIB texture sheets have an alpha channel which could be extracted with either imagetool or Photoshop and used as a light map.

The lightmap is generic to each model. Crazy as it seems, read the README!.txt  :)

Oh man. That looks like a difficult thing to do. Im not into alpha channels. Ive tried it but I cant get it working.

Just a correction, the Boeing 737 max is being developed as payware by FSPainter (Mitsushi Yutaka), not FAIB.

Hello.  May I ask how you were able to extract the alphas so that they could be applied to the converted textures?  I am very familiar with the FSX/P3D to FS9 conversion process, but cannot successfully extract and apply the alphas (I do not own Photoshop).  The 767s aircraft appear in FS9, but are transparent except for the tail and a few details.

I use the steps on the following site: http://kaese2002.blogspot.nl/p/blog-page.html

It helps me to convert the textures very easy. Im aware that the models have some domes on the fuselage that dont belong there and there should something be done with some alpachannels. Thats something I cant work on. 

I dont have transparent models, in my fs9 they show up normally.

I have it a go but it looks very dificult for me. I used the paintkit and I did some adjustments in imagetool but it is all new for me. I changed them to dxt3 and copied it in the files where the lightmaps should go. 

Do you guys have lightmaps?

Thanks for the reply.  Issue resolved!  I discovered that I had made a simple mistake that I am too embarrassed to reveal.  :blush:

Im feeling a large n00b right now. I really have no idea how make these lightmaps.

Is there someone who can help me with it or even has lightmaps made for himself for these FAIB 767's?

That would be nice. :-)
