Good news. I got the Queensferry Crossing bridge to actually show up in FG!

Bad news - its a MONSTAH!



More slow learning must continue....

On another front, been reconfiguring the HH60 Jayhawk for paint - seem to be a number of mapping issues. Major problem areas right now are tail hstab and top door rail area beneath winch on starboard side. Not the best of heli maps this one. Would be nicer if it were remapped to include zero mirroring and a top and bottom plan view. Jest sayin'....

This is where blender come in handy. Its very usefull for scaling stuff as the main grit is 1mt squares, then 10cm, then 1cm, you get the picture.
Need to see if Alex can do the mapping on the HH 60.

Gary is it best if you do the -60 map how you want it then I make it fit and we go from there? Might be easier than me trying to create something and then you paint within those lines,

Hi Alex,

Good Q. I'm wondering if we can't bend the existing UH-60 map to fit?



Need input whether it's possible / adviseable.

If we need a new map layout I can do that, although the approach of L/R/T/B painting views is where I'd likely go too.

Cheers,

G

More on the Queensferry Crossing Bridge. Now incorporated blob embankment on the North shore and some roadway extensions to "sink" into the scenery.



I'll 'ave this bugger yet...

Re: Queensferry Crossing Bridge.

I am done, and it is submitted for Scenery inclusion. I had tremendous help from Vic Marriott, who was fantastically patient and a great mentor through this process. Learned a bunch.

I, of course, am the first to fly beneath all FG Forth Road Bridges. Because, I fly like I stole it! Haha!

Update: Aircrane Pod project, working with Wayne (wlbragg)

First fitting for old school pod. A little long, a little high, but on track....



The Gen2 pod is more square, and will be modeled once this one is set. Also planned to have working doors and ramp. Goal is to accommodate a roll on / roll off Willy's Jeep.

:whistle:

Gary,

I've been trying to get this HH-60 thing to fit your 2016 map and I'm not having much luck. The general fuselage fits quite well but the doors and side pods ets all seem to be out os scale with the rest of it.

Any chance you could do a simple L/R type map with space between them so I can whack it all together in one pass, doing them object by object isn't going to fit I don't think.

Hey...Alex....you're back! Hope 'er indoors hasn't been running you ragged!

I'll have a go and generate a blueprint map to work from.

Alreet.

Here's the new HH-60 Blueprint. Hot off the presses, don't smudge it or put coffee stains on. :lol:



The 4096x version is dropped into the HH60 dev copy Liveries folder, called "Blueprints_HH60.png"

Let me know how it works out!
