Reworked EMB 120 Textures
(1/2) > >>
As said in another post I am reworking the textures of all the Embrear Aircraft done by Nick Botamer.
To give you an example how far I have already gotten I want show you this picture of an EMB120 texture:
[ Attachment removed / expired ]
The size is reduced by 50% - original size is 1024x1024 px.
Original aircraft was Air France Regional EMB120 which I downloaded from Project-ERJ's website. The color is not exactly "white" but slightly grey. I do not know whether I am going to change to color to exact white, as the greyish tone does fit the aircraft much better and gives it a weathered look.
!!! This is not the original repaint kit, although it pretty much looks like it !!! I reworked it from already published Air France textures !!!
P.S.: Nick, I hope it is OK for you that I do this. I'd like to publish my reworked textures at avsim/etc. as soon as they are finished.
I would prefer that any textures included in new paint kits be made from scratch and not reworked from already repainted planes.
if i may quote you from another post
The repaint kit is no longer being distributed. You will have to reverse engineer an already painted plane.
Does this refer to Virtual Airlines only, i.e. if a Virtual Airline wants to repaint an aircraft they may use "reengineered" textures, but they may not be published anywhere?
If so, I will refrain from publishing or distributing these, as long as I can use them for my own purposes (this may include a kind of "VA-Paintshop", i.e. I repaint an aircraft in VA's colours, based on the textures I own, and I send the final painted textures to them. This means I won't distribute any "white/blank" textures!)
I can understand your concerns about the texture, as being "reengineered" it almost looks like the original one.
By all means you can "clean up" a painted plane and use the textures for repaints which you upload. I just don't want a repaint kit with those textures distributed.
Ok. This won't happen. No redistribution.
Thanks for all the information. I hope I didn't annoy you to much with my problem.
