What I would be more interested in, is the progress of Systems and Cockpit Design... what about that? Liveries are actually the last things which have to be added to a plane... or of which people can be up to... first I would've loved some updates on the Interior / Cockpit and Panels Design... is there any progressing so far or are you actually busy to do liveries? and what about the missing nose gear?
System is zero is so far, just nothing done on it yet since I am not spending time coding something that is not there yet. The cockpit, you can see it a few pages back and it is crawling along, don't you worry. I do this for fun and keep on spending a lot of hours on it, so please don't judge me when I want to spent some time on a relaxing livery.
 
Calm down peops,.. that was olny a question due to interests of further interior design...

But whatever... if that was not even touched by now, that‘s what it is...

wasn‘t meant to pull anyone... just my interest.. hopefully understandable...
 
Very cool, that you've begun modelling some internal designs... as the outer modelling is quite finished allready. Hopefully this is coming together as good as the outer model looks...

Keep on going! Can't wait to see the finishing...
 
hello @F747fly
seeing that it took more thane 4 years to get to this and its not even fnished gives me motivation
never stop working and keep your dream alive
good luck with this beauty ;)

just a question :
does Belnder generate UVs automatically or it is a manual maping ? thnx in advance

Can I ask what is the poly count of your wingbox? And how many Vertecies did you input when adding your cylinder for your fuselage? I think I'm going to restart my own project, would like to use a few numbers from you if you don't mind.

I love the colour scheme :rotfl:
I know right? haha

Never lose dreams, it is the worst thing you can do!
It's manual wrapping, Blender's "automatic" wrapping gives some very oddly placed maps some times so I prefer to not use it on the major parts.

Wing box has approximately 3,000 verts on it now (mind you the A350's wingbox is quite complicated so this adds 1,000 ~ 2,000 easily). For the original circle to make the fuselage I used 108 verts. You may ask why, to which I will answer that this is what I calculated to optimal (as it gives you ~3.3 degrees per edge).

Thanks, appreciate your answer. And here I thought I was going heavy on verts with 1K for the wingbox of my A330. (Maybe I am, but if you are having good results in sim with that many verts, I think I have some room.)
Thanks again.

Also, what calculations did you do to get to said verts for original circle? I suck at math.

I calculated that I would most certainly need a vert line on the Y-acis where the 1 cockpit window forms a straight line, that would on 3.27 ~ 3.29 degrees from centre line (you can either eyeball it or you coul measure two distances on the top and side view, then use pythagorean theorem to calculate the real distance between the centre vert and the first vert on the cockpit screen, and then calculate what this distance would be on the radial formed from the centre... Yes, I actually did it this way but eyeballing probably works too).

Man...I think I am going to eyeball it.
 
Yes, but I am looking to test it in the SIM if any of my testers is available today (just the mesh)
If I was an FSX / P3D Simmer, i would've loved to test the Aircraft... but sadly I'm not... still using the old one only... If you'd backport it, I would've done a test in FS9 :D:D
