Nice paints brother! Let me guess the fictional: 101 with the Aardvark stripe? 

Great points BTW!

 

Man, I expected that to go a little longer.

 

It's semi-fictional, in the sense that it's how one of the airframe guys proposed they paint their color birds around the early 90s. I took his description and worked with it.

 

It's a what-if but in a sense that it was actually proposed, they just ended up sticking with the late hi-vis style or colored stripes on the tail instead.

Yeah, I had an Aardvark F-14 poster when I was a kid. Also, the Colors and Markings books for modelers. I love this stuff. Yours looks really good man! Those reserve and not so popular squadrons have very nice liveries and history. I'm thinking of trying my hand at livery creation. It will probably be a train wreck! Lol

DO it or Don't, but don't cry about it. Real men don't cry!

The Tomcat template is like Mt. Everest.

 

It's not easy, many have tried and many have turned back. There's also a mountain of dead bodies along the way. But, if you make it and get to the top, you realize nothing's going to top it.

 

There are quirks, you have to reverse-engineer some stuff, scratch make some of your own masks and templates, and even start messing with the layers marked *NO TOUCH* to get what you want. It's maddening sometimes. BUT, to me it's very powerful compared to some of the other jets where everything is crammed into two textures. Even a big texture size on the hornet means that major portions of the jet only get a 512x512 or even 1024x1024 section and resolution. You have to bump the Hornet's main textures up to I think 8K to really start getting some detail like the Tomcat has available, and then you have to basically rework the whole thing to properly upscale it and rebuild all the details. Case in point, Megalax's work on the Hornet and its roughmets.

 

The nice thing is the Tomcat has some great roughmets and normals already. Yes, the diffuse template has an insane amount of layers but I can see their purpose and it produces a very good end result. You just need 32gb+ of RAM and plenty of SSD space to really be able to swiftly work with it, otherwise saving and loading can take a really long time. Or, you can't save anymore because your scratch disk is full after opening 2-3 different template areas.

 

My "working" folder is 23gb, and I have 2 different versions of the template I use. One is now dedicated to the A model skins because I've had to alter some elements that are fundamentally different from the B, namely the fire punch-in and the VStab's leading edge reinforcements which YaeSakura kindly provided along with his own early 70s high-vis template.

But hey, apparently we just have to have another Jolly Rogers skin with candy canes instead because one guy rreeeaallllyyyy likes it.

 

hmmmm... Who could that insane guy be? :music_whistling:

 

But am I really the only guy within this huge community, who wants to see the Santa Cat ?

Cant belive it :dunno:  But in end, bad luck for me. :Flush:

 

The mashup between, christmas, candy canes and Jolly Rogers looks awesome as hell, doesnt it?

And did I already mentioned the legendary "Seasons Greetings" Fuel Tanks? :wub::wub::santa:   Pure perfection ...

 

Happy Painting to everybody

sadjad-vosoul, you came one week too early with this one :santa: 😉

Man, this really feels like christmas. It looks really really AWESOME.

Cant wait to see this one included into the module.

Also, that you included two versions, one for the early and one for the late cat. :wub: Perfect.

Would it be possible to submit also a liverie for the other two categories? The B and the Viggen?

Thanks and stay healthy. All of you.

The VX-4 is really well done. Good job, good submission.

I have a question about the pylons. Are they grey instead of black like the rest of the jet?

I searched for pictires but cant find one with the pylons.

Thanks for this submission.

Hope to see this one soon included into the module.

Cool, to see somebody giving attention to the VX-squadrons.

If you dont have a submission for the B yet, may I ask you to submit the VX-9 (Modex 240) or the VX-30 (Modex 210) ???

Thanks

Thanks for feedback about the pylons.

Great Idea to do a version for both the early and the late one.

Yes, hope your buddy submit his B-livery to this contest.

Hope to see a B livery from you too.

You did a really good job on your VX-4.

As soon as this one is included into the module, I will hop in on multiplayer and spash some bandits.

Thanks for this submission and maybe upcoming B-submission.

 

PS: I checked your attached list

There was a VX-30 B-Cat. Modex 210. Cant find it in your list. Just both D-Cats.

This 3-headed dog looks just insane. If you would submit this for the B, I will marry you 😉

Which livery we are talking about for the B?

Anyway, every livery is welcome.

Would be cool if you could contact him and ask him to submit it. Send him Greetings from the community

 

If you really decide to do a B-livery, here are some ideas:

 

Sluggers HiViz

Swordsmen HiViz

RedRippers HiViz

Grim Reapers HiViz

Bedevilers HiViz

VF103 Santa Cat 2000 and/or 1996

VX-9 (Modex 240)

VX-30 (Modex 210)

 

(added VX-9 and VX-30 for CanopyJettison)

Swordsmen is green, because it is already in the making by Shmoo42.

Cant wait seeing this one revealed.

The D Version is complete black, right? Would be cool to see this as a fictional livery for the B included.

 @sadjad-vosoul  Yes, please go ahead. This would be the candle on top of this contest, for me. Thanks in advance.

 

@timber29  Would it be possible, to submit your VX-30 210 for the B to this contest?

 

With VX-9 and VX-30 included into the Module, I think we have the B completed. Every squadron will be in there with at least one livery.

Lets make this happen...

 

Thanks again

IF we ever got the D model's TCS added as a model argument, then AI D models at least would be feasible. Or you can pretend it's a D in the meantime.

 

That would also make the B model prototype possible as well. But, HB would need to make all the TCS as animation arguments across the models to make that feasible. There are photos of the B prototype/test/D model tester with no TCS whatsover, bullet fairing, and with D TCS housing.

Both are F-14B

 

Thanks for helping me out 🙂

Those both liveries look awesome.

To be honest I never knew that those existed until now.

But they look out of this world.

We need them both to be included into the module.

 

I add them both to the list of missing B-liveries:

 

Sluggers HiViz

Swordsmen HiViz

RedRippers HiViz

RedRippers Christmas

RedRippers St. Patricks Day

Grim Reapers HiViz

Bedevilers HiViz (Olympia Rings)

VF103 Santa Cat 2000 and/or 1996

VX-9 (Modex 240)

VX-30 (Modex 210)

 

Would be awesome to get the VF103 Santa Cat as well.

You flying the RedRipper Christmas skin and i am your wingman with the VF103 Santa cat skin. :wub:

Would be awesome, if this will ever happen.

But its christmas, the time of wonder :santa:

If this is a final confirm, I will make the VX-9 (Modex 240) entry in the list green. Would be awesome. Thanks man.

 

@timber29 also from my side, I would love to see your VX30 210 livery submitted. With your confirm, I will also make this entry green.
