He who's lost is found

Recommended Posts

Jon -Great to see you're among the living. Glad I can stop searching Obits. Sorry you're life has become so complex, but glad to see you're choosing to cut it down to the essentials. Also sorry you're back to effyou three instead of fu3. It will become available again, I hope. MSFS is just fine to use as an alternative, as it merely expands your horizons, while providing a point of comparison. Go for it all.Glide slope: Knowing the story will be far more enjoyable than the experience.-Seadog

Yes, I'm still around too but sorry to say not contributing much at present. Good to hear Jon's return from his awol. I still look in occasionally (like most people I think) to catch up on news.Robert / robd323 (named after my Mazdas)

Ah Rob,Many greetings! Maybe about time for another Town Hall meeting or maybe the Uni as I'm around the airport on Tuesdays and Thursdays?I found this pic and it reminded me of your Clare's Valley 747 landing. I think in this case though, the landing was OK but the pilot was just busting for the toilet :-lolhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/154822.jpgRegards,**************Jonathan Point**************"I'd rather be down here wishing I was up there than up there wishing I was down here"

Yeah, but you did it by um, er, changing a few things ;-)These, on the other hand, involved no trickery whatsoever :-rollUnder the powerlineshttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/154898.jpgEvening at the duneshttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/154895.jpgThis was the cow's fault - I only overshot the corner!http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/154896.jpgDraggin' the localshttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/154897.jpg...but kudos on the shot none the less ;-)Regards,**************Jonathan Point**************"I'd rather be down here wishing I was up there than up there wishing I was down here"

Nice car, realistic power line masts and beautiful trees! However, I'd almost forgotten about those cows. What would it take to create better-looking cows with a sufficient amount of polygon surfaces? Ideally, we'd want animated objects for anything that's supposed to be moving about but that's asking too much. Still, I'm sure we could get static livestock that looks a lot better than those provided by Looking Glass.Hans Petter

H-P,Have you not seen this? http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/155080.jpgMarginally better than the LGS ones (i.e. transparency) IMHO.I did them about June 2004. Maybe I didn't release them?Whoops :-rollMaybe we should have a sticky thread for models? I have created over 500 (or at least 250 of each region) since 2003 :-eek I'm sure I've released the worthwhile ones...Regards,**************Jonathan Point**************"I'd rather be down here wishing I was up there than up there wishing I was down here"

Yup, I've been using Jon's improved cows for ages - his car gives more miles per liter and his cows give more liters per acre, better all round (sorry). Seriously he has some great animal models there. So has agtim. I've used their horses, sheep, birds, cows etc. I forget who did which. And of course there's Andy's little people. I still use his blue person, simply because for England I assume that's the natural colouring (Australia is much warmer). His people models are the most realistic (putting Mike and Ken back into the stone age with their neolithic block faces). Grab them while they're hot. So the FU3 world has plenty of live animals around, just that they can be hard to find in the library. I'm not counting glidernut's white dragon as an animal.Jon, I don't understand how that shot of the plane looks like my landing attempts at Clare's Valley. I mean, toilet break or not, he seems to have stuffed up his landing somewhat, and I never do.Well that wasn't my fault. It was your fence that bust the plane. What were you thinking of putting a fence just where I was overshooting?Nice car. Robd323.

I haven't got the prettier cows. Even though they must be quite polygon-intensive I'd like to see a few of those rather than the old ones. Could someone please upload prettier cows (or, horses)? The Oz variety as well as the Switzerland variety look fine. I prefer static cows. That is, as long as we can't get the kind that is truly moving about I think it's better to leave them standing in a field. The ones sliding around on stiff legs don't appeal to me :-)A moving vehicle, on the other hand, looks way more realistic.Hans Petter

H-P,The hereford's in the zipfile attached in post #11 with the Modelview image in it ;-)Oh, there's a sheep as well...And, I 'd like those hi-rez cows and horses too, Andre! What's the polygon count?Regards,**************Jonathan Point**************"I'd rather be down here wishing I was up there than up there wishing I was down here"

The Poly count is high between 1000 and 1200 for each animal !try to post a zip here, but too large Can't upload to library, it's not my productionsend me a mail subject "FU3 Cows Horses" to get itjust back from a UK elevation test flght :-)http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/155272.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/155274.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/155275.jpg :-wave agtim

I'm trying to find a method to upload a new model database at the moment - I'm having some problems with the website at the moment. But the new UKS database includes all of the sheep, cows, horses etc. My apologies agtim, I'd forgotten I got those animals from you, but Jon has also made so many excellent critturs over the years.I had a computer crash sometime ago and lost those beautiful blue cranes at London City Airport. They were based on the real cranes that trundle up and down near the ExCeL building. Did I happen to send a copy to anyone? I would love to recover them (otherwise I would have to rebuild them from scratch). I hate going backwards!Robd323.

Andre,I've lost your email address (again...). Please send an email to:jonathanpointgmailcomso I can get it. Wow! 2000 polys? I'm sure I could do something really good with ~150 (my cows are ~70) ;-) Rob,Didn't give 'em to me, did you? Just a thought.How big is the database? I have an idea, that's kinda like FTP but easier. Basically, users send a blank email to an email address (with a specific subject) and Voila! (shazzam, bingo, eureka etc.), one return email, with attachment. The limit seems to be ~50Megs/message, but I have about 2Gb at my disposal, so things could be done in parts.Just an idea :-rollRegards,**************Jonathan Point**************"I'd rather be down here wishing I was up there than up there wishing I was down here"

Ok for those without my email here it is:ameystreagtimchdo not forget the subject "FU3" important for my filter.and yes there are a lot of polys, it's a direct conversion from bgl files. I don't have 3ds files just e, can ad it to the zip. :-wave agtim
