    Hi all Its a long time since Ive been here or posted a plane for down load, I am doing graphics part time for another type of game and Flyng scale Rc planes 20cc to 60cc. 2 meter to 2.5 meter wing span. I still wont use or support microsoft in any way and am a member of free software org (www.fsf.org) Just wondering what simulator most are using now, getting the urge to do another plane Its nice to see the flight simulator comunity doing well. Cheers to all Marty

    Author : Marty Seabird Aviation Australia Pty Ltd (SEABIRD) has designed, developed and certificated the SB7L-360 Seeker-2 (SEEKER), a multi-role utility aircraft so as to achieve optimum effectiveness, performance and safety in low level observation tasks. A result of thousands of hours of tough military patrol, surveillance and training operations, the Australian designed and manufactured SEEKER is now available for commercial and private use.

  5. Many years ago at tech school we where told to alow 3/4 of an inch per 1/2 mile for the curvature of the earth. A quick Tan sujests 179.99875660200728976056676566484 degrees But that is based on a wisp of a memory from 35 years ago.

    For me its zone Alarm been with them for years, Lost all my info once with a HD crash and they replaced there software for free.
  8. A bit of a rant and rave

    Perhaps the same addiction doesn't apply to Aircraft, Certainly does and I think making any type of FSX product as a job, for me at least, would take the pleasure out of it. Still there are those who are passionate enough about their hobbies that they can earn a living and still enjoy them. As for the price of add on aircraft, if people pay the asked price its unlikely it will go down. Usually the interest in a particular model wains after a little while, but the scenery, is there forever and just keeps getting better.
  9. Seabird question...

    In short the effect is caused by, lots of small polygons all reflecting light at slightly different angles, FSX trying to add shading because it is a 3D object, Lastly, and mostly, poor use of material settings by me. I will experiment a little but to fix it properly I have to change the materials and include a specular and bump map which means none of the current paints will work properly. Obviously there will be some of this effect in the real plane with all the compound curves in the nose section but getting it just right in the model is beyond my limited ability at this stage. The same issue in part, causes the mega shine on the paints. Thanks for the comment it is something I am trying hard to learn about so my future models are better.
  10. Thanks mate on my way over to get ti now. Cheers
  11. Thanks

    Just spent the after noon flying some of the 1.0 and 1.1 strips in Qld, highly enjoyable. Makes VFR flying so much better its a great effort thank you.

    I'll use 1024, 512 is to small for a bird this big and I can include a double size texture in the paint kit easy enough. I will also delete the big side windows for a separate version to allow for painting.

    Mate the absolute best way is to work with the painter as the model progresses. If a part does not paint correctly its just a case of changing the mapping and giving it another go. That is how the red paint on the seabird evolved and eventually became the base texture. Garry used red because it showed any bits I had missed really well. He sent me updates on issues I had to deal with and I emailed back a new mdl file and positions for textures on the map. I have done this with a couple of other people as well.

    I save the project every now and then at different stages. Would you like the fsc files to go thru.
