Re: Alphasim F-4 repaints coming......

Yeah Harky Baby, you better get them before they go bye-bye. Don't know what happened to Alphasim, but if they're gone, these might be too. No telling in this crazy world. Back at the ranch, I'm done with painting the bottom one as it looks from pics I've found. I've only got one issue to be honest....

Re: Alphasim F-4 repaints coming......

Been working on the bottom one for a bit now. Getting closer to being done. Tail is 100% done now, and looking pretty dang good.

Re: Blurrry Repaints

Yes on both counts. Not so much in physical size, but in poly counts and file size. It will be very detailed in 32 bit, so some slower PC's may have issues with the textures. If you're concerned about it, there's nothing wrong really with DXT5. Try both and load them up on your flight sim. I persona...

Re: Blurrry Repaints

Make sure that both of the boxes in DXT.BMP are unchecked, on the right side of the menu. As well, don't save in 24 bit. The best, depending on texture size, is "extended bitmap" from the drop down box. Then save as DXT 5, or as "extended 32 bit 888-8". Do note, that "extended 32 bit 888-8" is a hug...

For awhile there, I was considered, and aptly tagged, the "Trapmaster"!! It seems to me, that we (me and Hark, or anybody else....

Alphasim F-4 repaints coming......

Here's are a few repaints I've been working on lately. They are already available by some painters. Difference is, mine will be more accurate, and more detailed. No timeline as of now as to when they will be done. But since I'm posting this, it will make me work a bit harder and faster to get them d...

In case you haven't heard, you can get just about everything that Alphasim sold as payware, for FREE!!!!! Virtavia has taken over, or should I say, is releasing the payware for free.

Re: High Memory...??

2.0 Ghz is on the slow side of your specs. Your memory is good, your graphics card is good. The only two bottle necks would be your processor speed and possibly your mother board.

NOTE: I run at 3.8 Ghz, 2 GTX 460's, and 12 GB of memory.

Here's a good read on painting a/c. Although it is mostly for FS9 and .bmp's, it works just as well when painting in DDS format. The Alpha channel is the same with the extended 888 as the DDS.
