Wonderful work. :)

 

Any chance you've got a C-17 hidden somewhere? It and the S-3 may be the two ugliest AI models left from the old days.

I dont use the standard RoughMet textures, they appear far too bright for my taste, so I create a RoughMet from the basic skin and tone that down(or up) to adjust the glare, its not really a bug as such.

 

If you use my Liveries as they are in the latest update that should not be an issue.

It is not about the Roughmet but the bumpmap on the model this is faulty as seen in the first picture. Take your original "MAM_C5_Galaxy_B" texture and make it slightly darker then you will see the same texture errors. To the "MAM_C5_Galaxy_RoughMet" texture. I find in the update 1.3 only the one that was also present in the 1.1.

None of my Liveries change the stock MAM_C5_Galaxy_B.dds file, they all use the same file that is in the Main Textures folder, as you can see from the description files in each Livery, the attribute is set to 'true'.

 

{"MAM_C5_Galaxy", 1, "MAM_C5_Galaxy_B",true},

 

I didnt create that file, it was created by the guys making the model, in 3dmax, and I learned long ago not to mess with bump files too much, the outcomes are never quite what you want, especially with older models such as this.

 

If you change the attributes of that file it will make things appear very differently on the flying model, which is what you appear to have done. So my next question is why are you changing that file to make it darker, I don't understand what you are trying to achieve by that ?

 

Can you explain what it is you are trying to do and I might be able to advise another option, but changing the stock bump file isnt going to be high on my list of recommendations.

You do not seem to understand me. I do not intend to darken the normal texture. It was just to show what bug is on the model. To make yourself a picture you should make your standard normals just darker and you look at this in the ModelViewer, then you will find that the spots on the model are the same as those seen in the first picture. Even with unmodified textures, you will see these errors when looking closely. you can see it especially well on the nose of the fuselage. There are three experts who have bought the models at Turbosquid, so I assume that you also have access to the model. Logically, it must also be visible in 3d max. But you can also do without the bumpmap and then display the lines in the RoughMet. I did that for many AI's from ED. you are welcome to watch.

Okay, your right, I didnt understand what you were saying, sorry. This is well beyond my area of expertise, I know nothing about 3dmax, I dont own or have access to it, I just make up skins and livery packs from what I am given to work with.

 

I have asked the guys who made/converted this model to look at your posts and respond.

 

PS - Thank you for your link, I had not seen that, I will use it in future if I can.

Thanks for the answer. I thought you were a team. So you're not doing anything else like me. Paints. I will consult cdpkobra from the LockOn forum. But who put the decals on the model. It seems like it is a mistake with the light on the model. If the problem can not be solved, you should just omit the bumpmap.

I have passed your concerns on to cpdkobra and blacklibrary already, they should respond soon.

 

I am not part of the model construction/conversion process, I know nothing about any of that. I am not sure you could call me part of any team as such, I do things mostly for myself and am happy to pass them on to other 'teams' if they find them useful.

 

These Mods (CAM and MAM) are essentially just eye candy items to add to the game and the quality is not intended to be up to that of a Core Mod aircraft as I understand it. Your expectations may be a bit too high, but they will help you I'm sure.

 

I have always found bump files to be a pain in the ass, but I do like what you did with your Mod, very interesting and very useful. Sorry I did not really understand what you were doing to start with, but I'm with you now.

I had this problem too. In the description.lua in the Travis AMC folder, change the MAM_C5_Decals entry to "{" MAM_C5_Decals ", 0," MAM_C5_Decals ", true}". Change in the textures folder in the Military Aircraft Mod.zip the "MAM_C5_Decals_T.dds" in "MAM_C5_Decals.dds".

Thank you, once again, for this mod, outstanding !

 

A question, or idea about the Greyhound : do you think it would be possible to add some weapons inside, so not visible, like Sparrow or Phoenix, in order to use this aircraft as a warehouse - carrier - resuplier ?

 

Like in this video :

Excellent stuff. Been thinking that DCS should have a COD for ages, but adding an Orion to the pack is just the icing on the cake!
