  1. Hello guys. This is my first post here, even though I've been lurking for quite a while now... This is a post to announce a new livery for the 747-400ER Qotsll V3: South African Airways "new" paint. After wanting to fly through Africa, Europe and Middle East I looked for a nice SAA livery, but all I could find was some squishy models with inaccurate color palette and logo distortions (not saying mine is perfect). I then decided to give it a try and here it is. I chose the words (from a real SAA 747 by the way) SHOSHOLOZA for this livery and here is what it means (just copy pasted from Wikipedia): "Shosholoza" is a Fanagalo song that was sung by the mixed tribes of miners mining gold in South Africa. It is a mix of Zulu and Ndebele words, and can have various other South African languages thrown in depending on the singers. It was sung by all-male African workers that were working in the South African mines in a call and response style. The song is so popular in South African culture that it is often referred to as South Africa's second national anthem. Anyway, here is the link for the PTP file: https://nofile.io/f/07MKZOcOjxO/PMDG+747-400ER+V3+South+African+Airways+(Shosholoza)+2018.ptp Please let me know if you find any mistakes or faults regarding the file or the painting. I am open to receive new requests as well. Enjoy. :)
  2. Hello. I just finished painting a Privilege Style livery for Feelthere 145 and I don't know how to mount it, can anyone help me? Here you are the files: http://www.mediafire.com/?b3j3qk2c7hps20x I have already done the wings, tail and engines, I need help with the main fuselage only. This is what I need to mount. It's for FS2004. Thanks. Javier Cabrera.
  3. I've converted and repackaged (with his permission) Jamrom23T's excellent 70s themed repaints for the Justflight Piper Arrow III aircraft. You can find them in the FSW repaint download section here at https://library.avsim.net/index.php?CatID=fswrep
  4. Hey, I'm studying Aviation at University and my group have been tasked with starting up a hypothetical airline, The name is still pending however a working name of ManChi Airways is in use. We were looking for some of the more talented painters out there to do us a simple livery so we can take some realistic looking images in FSX for use in our presentation, The deadline for this is the 25th march. We don't mind which aircraft you use as we have access to PMDG737, Airbus X and any of the default Aircraft. We cannot pay you guys unfortunately (we are students after all) However we can credit you when we give our presentation if you wish. We basically want a good design preferably in a Red Colour and featuring the Hong Kong and UK flags. We're not too picky as you guys are probably wizards at this stuff in comparison. If you so happen to choose this Mission you can contact me at the email below, also there is a basic layout of a livery painted on a 787 you guys can use this/change parts but this is the general colouring done by a group member (We have already called him up on the Thomson similarities). however we would ask it is painted onto one of the aircraft mentioned above. no one in my team has any talent with this stuff so we have turned to you guys. Hope you can help my degree is riding on this being a top notch presentation! Contact Email: m.kent-fox@edu.salford.ac.uk http://i61.tinypic.com/vct739.jpg Thank you to anyone who shows interest, I look forward to hearing from you.
  5. I have this issue where my aircraft (in this case the A380 by Project Airbus) - my aircraft's texture became transparent. Not that I want it, I want to get rid of it. It is weird to have see-through fuselages. Will post screenshot if required. I'm still a newbie at repainting, but am knowledgeable. Please advise
  6. Hello! I am going to start making liveries and was wondering what program would suit me the best. I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 6, but I was thinking of getting PaintShop Pro X3 'cause it's on sale by 60%. Would it be worth it? I would like to hear from you if you make repaints, and if so, what programs(s) you use and how complicated they are for a novice painter... Thanks for our help and best regards, Sam Cordell: )

    I'm trying to make my own livery and I am almost finished, one of the last things it to change the registration shown underneath the PFD/ND. Can someone help me out on how to get this working? so far i've only come up with blank results. I'm probably doing something wrong with either the layers or when saving the file. Cheers, Walter K
  8. Hello, All: I searched this forum and was not able to find any information on the DC-6 paint kit. Currently PMDG only has the X-Plane version with X-Plane install instructions: I'm looking for instructions to publish liveries for P3D/FSX. I am assuming we can use the Operations Center to package and install custom paints but I'd like to make sure. I've already started my own paints and just want to make sure I install them correctly and that I am using the correct files. If anyone knows where the instructions are for the other flight sim platforms I would appreciate it very much. Thanks!
  9. Hello to everyone, i have had FS9 for a little while now and although I'm not bored with the flying bit, i am really interested in the re-skinning and development of things. I have come from a simulator which i also was a developer for with over 50-60 views on my site a day and my downloads having at least exceeded 15,000 mark in just under a year, but the simulator from which i have come from is starting to hang its self and i need a new simulator to try out. and FS9 was my chosen option. So here's my question, Who is/are and ill quote from a read-me in the Airbus -A320 The plane i got was freeware and as yet i cannot see any copyright issues or restrictions for using or re-skinning the plane. so as yet I'm unsure how to proceed. I have tried a Google search but its infested with you tube videos of their work. Any help would be great. I hope this is in the right section! Ben. (The picture attached is my first go and only 30 minutes in, its got my girlfriends name on the nose to show i'm not just editing work already out their. this was a little project i took on to see if i could actually get somewhere. if this is a breach of any copyright then i would not hesitate to tell me or have a moderator remove the picture.)
  10. Hello everyone, I'm looking for some pre existing prop textures ( Prop_C172.dds) for the Default 172. I have painted the prop for the aircraft while the engine is not running. What I'm looking for is a prop with a red and white tip while the prop is running. I have tried to paint the Prop_C172.dds but it comes out black and the lines don't look right. I don't exactly how to work with the Alpha Channel for the texture. If you know of a pre ex existing texture please let me know. (Please Post a link) If you would be willing to paint one for me that would be great as well. Maybe we could work out some kind of a trade. Thanks Guys! :help: :Praying: This is the custom paint I have done that I'm looking for the texture for!
  11. Hi, i am a staff member at the new and upcoming VA expressregional.com. Now we would like a texture done. we would like the plane textures to be the old american airline metal, and instead of the American airlines we would like that replaced with express regional on the tale its the same way but with EXR If anybody can do that for free it would be very nice Thank you
