  1. @SilverTornado There are regional clips for Asia, but whether there are any specifically for India I am not sure. The tool does not distinguish the chatter at country level anyway. You can give the demo version a spin: https://www.stickandrudderstudios.com/fs-atc-chatter-sample-collection-and-demo/ FS ATC Chatter is a real gem in my view... even if the chatter is not 100% accurate to all locations.
  2. And have you ever wanted something so badly That it possessed your body and your soul Through the night and through the day Until you finally get it And then you realize that it wasn't what you wanted after all And then those selfsame sickly little thoughts Now go and attach themselves to something or somebody new And the whole word not allowed thing starts all over again True Happiness This Way Lies, The The 1993
  3. If you don’t know it already, you might also take a look here: https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/your-current-top-5-aircraft/507204/1029 An excellent source of inspiration by Baracus250 on the official forum... and check the third place with a safe margin to fourth πŸ˜‰
  4. If twins can make the cut, then you should have a look at the Cessna 414 Chancellor from Flysimware. Now that is retro and old school πŸ‘ŒπŸ» with a lot of character! EDIT: your post above just beat me πŸ˜‰
  5. @ryanbatc ... I made it to the nacelles πŸ’©πŸ˜΅ How on earth am I supposed to paint a straight line?... they always end up being wiggly! πŸ˜‚
  6. Turning 48 today! First sim was Microprose Solo Flight for the C64.
  7. I am using the old paint kit but with Steve Dra’s clean textures as a base. Saw on Discord that a new version of the paint kit is available now...
  8. Here goes... first version and work in progress! Yes it is simple - but I did it! Went for a colour scheme that reminds me of the 70's to honour the aircraft. In the end I went for @Steve Dra's clean white textures (thanks for those) as a start and then managed to transfer some mild grunge from the FSW paintkit e.g. the around screws etc. I like that slightly used look. Thanks @ryanbatc for the tip on using the hangar - that is a real time saver. Still need to work on: *The nose... it's killing me, but need to get a nice transition down to the end of that pointy thing! * The rudder... getting the livery aligned over the texture breaks is a nightmare! * The winglet logo is too low quality. * Then the nacelles... saving them for last πŸ˜‰
  9. I got an email from JF with a discount code and just bought the upgrade... maybe your email is on its way!
  10. Bought the core version from JustFlight... but the upgrade is not live there yet methinks. Argh. Will make my own bread this weekend instead of going to the baker’s - then the upgrade is paid πŸ˜‰
  11. Thanks both - great tips which will surely get me going. I'll experiment with the blend modes some more and moving the layers around... maybe I will surrender to the All White livery when I get fed up! Very good to know that you can actually use the hanger 'live' so to day... it was getting a bit cumbersome exiting and loading the sim each time πŸ˜…
  12. A thread about painting the Chancellor - just what I was hoping for. Allowing myself to tag @ryanbatc and @Steve Dra since I admire your work on liveries and you definitely know what you are doing πŸ™‚ I am getting myself started on a full custom livery for the Chancellor... have done some minor adjustments to liveries before such as replacing tail numbers etc., but never a full paint job. I use GIMP and paint.net. For now I have started with the paintkit from Flysimware, because I like the scruffy look and the weathering, but I am getting some headaches with that approach. When I add my livery design layer to the layer stack, there is quite a bit of difference in the resulting (tone of) colours of the blended layers between the body section and the tail section. The tail colours being darker. I have tried several of the blend modes of which most don't make sense of course, and my approach just confirms that I am a novice here. I am guessing it is because the tail is in reality darker/grimier than the body? Any advice on how to make this work i.e. keep the livery colours the same between the sections AND get the grimy look? I have tried to place the livery layer at different places in the layer stack, but no luck. Wrt. aligning the livery across the various sections e.g. the tail and the rudder... is there a smart way or is it just trial and error? πŸ˜‰
  13. Which airport are they from? Might want to go there 😊
  14. I have leftovers to make smash burger for lunch... gotta go!
  15. @earthdog Holy cow - those are some seriously nice shots mate!
