OPEN SCREENSHOT THREAD

Post by rd » Tue Jan 01, 2008 5:45 am

Welcome to the Open Screenshot Thread.

The rules are few, but need to be adhered to.

1: Any size is allowed, but must be under the 256kb file size.

2: Shots may be edited or unedited. Just make sure they look good.

3: There is no limit to how many shots you can post up. But, that does not mean you can upload 10 pics of basically the same thing.

4: You must upload your shot to here. Any links will be deleted.

5: All shots must be from FS9 / FS2004.


All shots, comments, will be watched by the Mods. Comments on shots are welcomed, and wanted. Help for those that are just starting, would be awesome, as some, do need help, or guidance. This can include helping someone set up the G-Card settings, system, and help on how to take the screenshot.

Last thing, if it is that bad, then it will be ghandi.

Well, it's not here on SurClaro. It's something I'm just finishing up, I have to clean up the .cfg file of leftovers, and package it up decently. RD's got it because his FX, or modified versions of his FX, are all over it, (as well as his .AIR file and a seriously super-secret .cfg file as a base) and I will need his approval and permission before this goes out to the public. There's really not much to it, just a great, low-poly exterior model with some decent landing-pad animations and a wicked VTOL attitude. Pretty speedy at altitude as well, without going overboard. Anyway, nobody even gets to play with it until RD's done with it, and it seems like he's having fun now that he's got a hold of it. That liquid metal paintjob is actually pretty neat, say so if you want it and maybe he'll throw it into the mix. If he gets ornery just offer up some ice cream, or a bottle of Jack Daniel's. It'll be out soon though, and you can give it a whirl. I get some great screenshots out of these spacey aircraft.
I'll see if I can get a few more good shots for this topic, instead of being long-winded...and who knows what RD will get up to, I think he likes playing with this stuff.

Hark..

The flight dynamics are freaking superb. This thing ROCKS. 10 times better than the Maelstrom as far as VTOL. And the skidders for gear, is an excellent choice. No roll out here baby, none at all. And landing, is a new science. Pinpoint accuracy, once you get it.

What the hell did you do to my Batburner and blue flame effects?? I LOVE IT. (note to self..code any and everything you send to HarK).

Well since you didn't comment on my Liqiud Chrome paint job, I assumed you didn't like it. I have another one in the works (paint job). Will post it up tomorrow if I can.

Otherwise, yeah, I am digging this thing, and flying the hell out of it.

Great job Hark.

Thanks man, I appreciate that. And I do like the liquid chrome paint, it would make a great variation, hint, hint. And if you can possibly make anything else out of the mess of a bitmap I have for the body top and bottom, well...you da man. 8) Those FX do look pretty spacey eh, thanks for the opportunity to play with them. Your NavBLUE3's are perfect as accents too are they not?

Right, and it doesn't have anything to do with the fact that you probably did strip off the paint by taking off all nice and vertical and then hitting 'F8'. Tons of fun to be had by just going into the .CFG file and changing the lbs of thrust...she'll go as fast as you want. :twisted: :twisted:

Pretty cool bud, looks sort of liquidy-reflective. What's up with the landing skids in the second shot? If I land well and gently on a solid surface the skids sit well without sinking in once she's all settled down...do the skids always sink in a bit for you once she's still?

I think it's the shadow. Otherwise, I haven't had any problems with the skids when landing, or a sinking feeling at all.

Ah...O.K., cool...I do get a little sink in if the aircraft rocks a little upon landing, but it goes away fast and then the skids sit just right on the tarmac. I was very careful to get these points the best they could be with my limited knowledge of the finer points - that's why I was almost really perturbed to see your skids sitting slightly under the asphalt. Alright...sigh of relief! Geez, just went through days of messing with the WASP feet to get them behaving decently, too. :roll:

Dam, with your limited knowledge, and my NO knowledge (ok maybe a little), do you think I would fly this thing (beast, crap, ship, etc), and NOT tell you that I had a problem with something.

C'mon Hark, if you screwed up, you KNOW I would let you know.

Ya know....Sometimes you're your own enemy at times. :lol:

(LMAO @ Su and Fokker.... figure out that one!!!!)

RD

edit: I was also doing some slewing, trying to get a good shot. That might have something to do with the way the pic turned out.

I never thought of you slewing (I don't think of you like that....I thought you were a nice man, now I find out you're out half the night, slewing all over town!) :lol:

And yeah, I'm my own worst nightmare most times.


Excellent......ummm...carry on.

Unfortunatly Clay, I don't have much clout with Alphasim, otherwise I could make a few demands, maybe I might attempt a re-paint for my personal choices only, not looked to see if it's possible.

Need a few pics of the real thing though. :idea: (hint). :lol:

See if they have a paint kit for it. Sometimes they do provide one in PSD format. Which makes me giddy as hell, when they do.

btw, Where did you get that F16. That is one sharp looking bird.

Great shots too.
