Could we have a paintkit for the A320 please?

  • Hi Matt,


    We're investigating if we can create a repaint kit for the A320. The textures are not as well organized, e.g. the fuselage is cut into several pieces on the texture so that it's not easy to write text on the fuselage. I think we had an Aer Lingus livery at some point during the development but I'm not sure if that is still up to date and could be published or not. We're evaluating this as well.

    Thanks Jan


    that's great on both counts.

  • Jan,

    Are the PaintKit team members the same as the ones who should update/rewrite the Repaint Tutorial Wiki? It is so out-of-date that nothing can be related to the latest Aircraft Converter. I think there are a lot of community users that can paint, it is just we no longer know how to get the bmps and psds converted to useable ttx files so they can be used in the sim. 8o

    I think the repainters can work with most any cut and paste paintkit. Take a look at what we have to work with for the B737-500. Heck, even I came up with something using this chopped up layout. This is just to find the full page location, there are all kinds of mixed pieces within the pages.

    Jan, the fact that someone can use whatever existing painting template is currently available for the a320 to make 17 different repaints, all with a different paint scheme and practically all of them with the text along the fuselage doesn't bear out what you are saying above. Painting is never easy, but is almost impossible without a paintkit. Obviously text can be written on the fuselage.


    Maybe we can just have some of the existing PSD files to redo as our repaints.
